An anonymous source has sent in some information related to HP's upcoming push in the enterprise space - a push that will happen both directly and through their channel partners. In an email to said partners, HP dropped word that they're going to lay out the entire strategy in March:

At the HP Americas Partner Conference (APC) next month, we will unveil our channel strategy for mobility and shed light on how these offerings can help partners grow their business.

Enterprise just might be HP's best chance to grow significant market share in 2011 given how competitive the consumer space has been and will be for the foreseeable future. Bundling webOS products - from phones to tablets to computer software to printers - with their existing offerings to enterprise customers may be the easiest way to get phones out in the market.

Our source also said that HP is likely targeting a June launch for the TouchPad, which is on the right end of that "summer" launch window if you ask us. Hopefully HP will be able to meet that target, because the tablet space will already have seen a few months of hyper-competitive jostling between the Playbook, Xoom, iPad 2, and others.
