HP TouchPadWhile HP finishes blowing out the remaining stock of its original TouchPads, there’s some interesting talk today centering around an interview by Reuters with the Personal Systems Group’s Todd Bradley. According to Bradley, there could be an unexpected result should HP decide to spin off its PC division: a new and improved HP TouchPad.

Tablets are a market segment that is “relevant, absolutely” Bradley said, and that relevance could see the world’s largest PC manufacturer take a second stab at what is currently one of the two hottest tablets in the world.

For that to happen, of course, HP has to actually decide that it is definitely going to break the PSG out (that decision won’t come until after the 2011 holiday season), close the deal, and then set to work developing a TouchPad 2 (and situate webOS licensing details with the main company). It’ll be many moons before all that goes down, so in the meantime anyone who’s suddenly become interested in owning an HP TouchPad will have to keep checking around for stores to receive additional stock.
