According to report in The Information, HP and Google discussed making an enterprise-centric Nexus device. The two tech giants also talked over the past year about utilizing Google Now as a corporate tool.

Google and HP primarily discussed potentially making Google Now useful in a corporate environment. The search giant's creation would allow employees to easily lookup and access company information such as financial or inventory data.

Regarding the enterprise-centric Nexus device, HP envisioned a product with high-end hardware encryption. Google however, was allegedly not as enthusiastic as the hardware company on the subject.

A potential collaboration between the two companies would rival the recently announced strategic partnership between Apple and IBM. Talks between HP and Google however, have reportedly fallen through.

Would love the idea of blackberry + Microsoft but blackberry security is overrated. Probably the most monitored network in the world. Blackberry + Microsoft + Nokia - Elop - ballmer = Mind blowing combination
