HP is reportedly planning to release the software for the HP Precision Pavilion 11, which is expected to be unveiled on March 6 at an event in Chicago.
The company has already released a version of its software for PCs, which was announced back in June.
That version of HP’s software is designed to run on a range of devices, including smartphones, tablets and desktop PCs, and it’s supposed to run as an open source program.
It has been available to the public since late June.
According to the Wall Street Journal, however, HP is planning to add the software to the platform as soon as it launches the HP Professional Xpress line of notebooks later this year.
The PC market is expected not to grow at a rapid pace until the end of the decade, but it’s not yet clear when the company will add its software to a range that’s expected to grow even faster.HP could be looking to make the hardware more appealing to enterprise customers by offering more sophisticated tools to help them manage the devices, but the company’s plans could also have a negative impact on its ability to sell those devices to consumers.
The PC market will likely remain stagnant until 2020, with some estimates saying that the market will shrink by about 1% in 2020.
