HP has announced that it will no longer be selling the HP ProBook 9550, HP Probook 9560, HP Xpress and HP X3 tablets.
The move was announced today by HP Chief Operating Officer Dave Karpinski, who said the company is closing the software business and moving toward the cloud.
The company’s hardware business will remain closed, and the software division will remain part of HP, he said.
“I would like to thank HP’s customers for their support, patience and commitment to our hardware and software platforms over the past five years,” Karpinsky said.
“We are committed to delivering the most secure, advanced and reliable products on the planet.
Our customers’ continued support will be instrumental in helping us achieve this goal.”
Karpinski said HP will focus on its cloud platform, including its new cloud platform called the Cloud Platform, and will be launching a new cloud-based platform called HP Cloud Suite later this year.
He also said HP is moving toward using its cloud infrastructure to handle more workloads and services, including cloud storage, virtualization and virtualization-as-a-service.
The HP Cloud Platform is the next evolution of HP’s cloud services, which will be available in the third quarter.
HP’s announcement comes as a huge blow to some of its smaller hardware customers.
HP had said that the HP TouchPad 710 and HP Touchpad 715 tablets would be discontinued in the fourth quarter.
The HP ProBooks 9550 and 9560 were the company’s most popular laptops, and sold in a big way.
They were popular with consumers, especially those who wanted a more modern laptop.
They also were very affordable.
HP said it will be moving its hardware division to the cloud, which means it will make fewer hardware products.
It also said it plans to make smaller hardware products, which are typically more expensive.
The ProBook and ProBook Xpress tablets are both expected to be discontinued.
HP also said that it was closing the HP Xpen tablet business, and it will start selling HP Xpad devices.
