Whitman tells Fox Business News that HP is working on a smartphone but knows it has to get it right this time. Her mantra is "better right than faster than we should be there."
"We have to ultimately offer a smartphone because in many countries of the world that would be your first computing device," Whitman said.
Last month, HP revamped its webOS brand under the moniker Gram, which it plans to run as a wholly owned subsidiary focused on building devices to feature the OS. (See OS Watch: HP Unit Resurrects WebOS.)
