HP is gearing up to host the biggest conference in their history, HP Discover, next week, and Neowin will be there all week to cover all of the highlights. In the past the company has had separate shows for both hardware and software, but this year they’re merging them into one giant gala. While the main focus of the conference is enterprise technology like cloud computing, virtualization, and security, there is going to be something there for everyone. The conference runs from June 6th through June 10th.
We’re hoping to get some hands-on time with the unreleased HP Touchpad and Pre 3 as well as details on where HP sees these technologies in both the consumer and enterprise markets. In addition we’re interested to hear where they think the future of cloud computing is headed and how we’ll be able to keep this “instant on” infrastructure running safely and securely.
If there’s something HP-related that our readers are interested in getting an inside view on, please let us know in the comments section so we can try to get detailed information for you.
