Hewlett-Packard is jumping back into the consumer tablet market according to an internal company memo that was first published by The Verge.

The memo was written by Todd Bradley, head of HP’s Printing and Personal Systems Group. In the memo Bradley said, “Our new Mobility Global Business Unit initially will focus on consumer tablets and will expand to additional segments and categories where we believe we can offer differentiated value to our customers.”

The memo went on to say the new unit would be led by Albert Torres, a former executive vice president at Nokia who most recently oversaw the production of Nokia’s MeeGo products. Torres’ new title will be senior vice president of Mobility and he will report to Bradley.

This move marks HP’s first step back into the tablet market since the unsuccessful launch of its TouchPad tablet last year. Torres is slated to begin on September 3.
