HP Sees Apple as Market Leader in 2012, Whitman Tells Le Figaro

Hewlett-Packard Co. (HPQ) Chief Executive Officer Meg Whitman expects Apple Inc. to overtake the company as the market leader in personal computers in 2012, she told Le Figaro in an interview.

“It’s possible if you integrate the tablets,” she was cited as saying by the French daily. “We will try to be champion again in 2013. It will take time for the products that I have influence on to make it to the market.”
