Hewlett-Packard to cut 9,000 jobs worldwide

Computer giant Hewlett-Packard (HP) says it plans to spend $1bn (£686m) and shed a further 9,000 jobs over three years as it creates fully-automated commercial data centres. HP, the world's largest technology company by sales, says the job cuts will be the result of productivity gains and automation. The cuts come on top of 6,700 job cuts made last year.

HP added that it would replace about 6,000 of the jobs that were lost, adding that the changes to the workforce would be made over time and would vary by country. The firm said it would record a $1bn financial cost charge in the course of its 2013 financial year. "As a result of productivity gains and automation, HP expects to eliminate roughly 9,000 positions over a multi-year period to reinvest for further growth and to increase shareholder value," it said. It said the shake-up would make it annual gross savings of about $1bn and net savings "after reinvestment in a range between $500m and $700m".

HP enters smartphone market, buys Palm for £787m

Computer manufacturer Hewlett-Packard has become a new player in the smartphone market, buying phone maker Palm for $1.2 billion (£787 million). Palm has been struggling to compete with rivals Apple and RIM, with its most recent model, the Pre, failing to make sales targets.HP will use Palm's webOS operating system to help it to gain a foothold in the competitive smartphone and mobile devices markets; expanding the OS across other devices, possibly including a tablet or slate type device.

Commenting on the acquisition, Todd Bradley, executive vice president of HP's Personal Systems Group said "Palm possesses significant IP assets and has a highly skilled team. The smartphone market is large, profitable and rapidly growing, and companies that can provide an integrated device and experience command a higher share. Advances in mobility are offering significant opportunities, and HP intends to be a leader in this market.”
