/// HP Hires Nokia’s Former MeeGo Head Torres, but Not for Gram

August 17, 2012  |  All Things Digital

Don’t look now, but Hewlett-Packard’s mobile strategy is starting to look increasingly confused. Earlier this week we learned about Gram, a stealthy, wholly owned subsidiary that is being fashioned out of the webOS remnants of the company formerly known as Palm. It has even taken to buying up cool domain names . Anyway, today we were reminded, again via a memo leaked to The Verge , that there’s still another mobile group within HP, and this one, unlike Gram, will be building hardware. In the memo, Todd Bradley, head of the Printing and Personal Systems Group (PPSG), which encompasses the world’s biggest manufacturer of both PCs and printers, announced the creation of a new Mobility Global Business Unit that will operate within PPSG, and named Alberto Torres, the former head of Nokia’s abandoned MeeGo smartphone operating system efforts, to run it. I’ve confirmed from sources that the memo is authentic, and I’ve also gotten one bit of clarification for anyone who may still be confused.
