    HP's webOS Boss Encourages Team Through Early Reviews

    We didn’t exactly heart the TouchPad. We didn’t hate it, either. We even said that “WebOS and the Palm TouchPad are nearly perfect, an excellent amalgamation of everything that was ever right about Palm.” Granted, perfection in this industry lasts about as long as a battery cycle, and we had plenty to gripe about, but as far as the TouchPad goes, we have hope. But day-one reviews… Read More

    It's A Pretty Big Ship: HP Isn't After Apple, It's After The Enterprise

    Loopinsight has an interview with HP's developer relations guy, Richard Kerris, where he basically says that WebOS is HP's enterprise strategy, not their consumer play. He says: “We think there’s a better opportunity for us to go after the enterprise space and those consumers that use PCs,” said Kerris. “This market is in it’s infancy and there is plenty of room for both of us to… Read More

    Fly Or Die: Guess Who Doesn't Like The HP TouchPad?

    Erick is a cruel man. Known throughout TC HQ as the "Iron Stampede," his rages against technology products are epic and legendary. You should have heard him go off on Google+ yesterday. He was livid. That's why it's interesting to see him calmly dismantle the TouchPad in this episode of Fly or Die. Gone is the red faced anger, the spittle, the curses. Instead, he tries it out and comes away… Read More

    HP TouchPad Torn Apart In The Name Of Science And Entertainment

    Here we are again. Another high profile device just launched, which means someone has to tear it apart. This time it’s TechRepublic tearing down the brand-new HP TouchPad who found just a few screws hold the whole thing together. In fact they state it’s built more like a PC than a tablet. Anyway, click through if you want to spend two minutes of your life looking at teardown pics. Read More

  • Review: The HP Palm TouchPad

    Review: The HP Palm TouchPad

    Short Version: Like Duckie from Sixteen Candles, Palm has been the perennial third choice. Even in its late heyday, when the Treo still ruled the airwaves and the iPhone was a faint glimmer in Apple's eye, they got the short end of it with consumers and critics. But there was - and is - a zealous minority who see Palm as the Third Way, a way out of Apple/Android/Microsoft hegemony and who see… Read More

    Own A Pre Or Pixi? Get $50 Off The 32GB TouchPad Through July 31st

    HP is offering up a $50 rebate to owners of a Palm Pre or Pixi in a clear attempt to get some early support for the TouchPad. The offer is good through the end of July and all you need to do is prove somehow that you own one of the phones although the exact process of proving your loyalty isn’t clear just yet. The big caveat here is that the offer is only good on the $599 32GB TouchPad… Read More

    Want To Play With A TouchPad? Get Thee To Best Buy (Or Wal-Mart)

    HP’s webOS tablet, the TouchPad, doesn’t officially hit until July 1st, but that hasn’t stopped some of the big retailers from putting their demo units out for the public to fondle. Sure, you could just watch the official demo videos, but nothing beats actually seeing something in action. Or seeing someone else see it in action, as in this YouTube video taken at a Kansas… Read More

    HP Giving Employees 20% Off The Touchpad

    The HP Touchpad will be fighting uphill for the foreseeable future and it seems HP is helping its employees eat their own dog food on the cheap. At this point it doesn’t matter how good webOS multitasks, makes video calls, or browses the Internet. There are already a billion (or so) iPads worldwide and a proportionate amount of developers very comfortable with the slick iOS SDK. The key to… Read More
