• 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… Read More

  • Always Optimistic HP Says "Touchpad will be better than number one"

    HP’s upcoming tablet, the Touchpad and not the PalmPad in case you missed the memo, will be better than number one. You could call it number one plus. That’s exactly what HP’s European head recently stated at a conference in Cannes and this silly quote is now spreading around the gadget blogosphere. The Touchpad will likely be a great; HP doesn’t make bad hardware. It… Read More

  • HP TouchPad To Hit Wal-Mart For $599

    If this leaked internal listing is legit, it looks like HP’s TouchPad will be coming to Wal-Mart for $599 for a 32GB model. We heard that it would be $699 earlier, and likely that price will still exist for the 64GB version. Will there be a cheapie one for $499? No word. We’re pretty sure it’s going to hit in June, though, so stay tuned for further leaks as the launch… Read More

  • HP TouchPad, HP Pre 3 To Hit Shelves In June

    It’s looking like the HP TouchPad and HP Pre 3 aren’t too far away from release. Back at the Think Beyond event in February, the devices were promised to appear this “summer,” and since then, a more specific time frame has been laid out. According to multiple statements made by HP CEO Leo Apotheker, the HP TouchPad should show up in June. But what about the Pre 3? Read More

  • TouchPad In June, webOS On PCs in 2011, Says HP's Apotheker

    HP’s TouchPad was announced about a month ago, but no solid shipping date has been set. I’m not sure what it is about companies announcing products with no real information on availability, but tablets seem to be especially prone to this phenomenon. We heard June, then we heard April, and now HP’s Leo Apotheker, in a Q&A, has said that yes, June is the month it will… Read More

  • HP To Sell TouchPad In April?

    Digitimes, ever eavesdropping on the water cooler talk at big manufacturers, reports that HP’s webOS-powered TouchPad may be launched as soon as April, two months earlier than the only extant previous estimate. Volume is predicted at 4-5 million units, which is in line with other big names in the tablet field. The earlier the better, HP, but with the Xoom and Galaxy Tab 10.1 (among… Read More

  • Walk On The Wild Side Riff Destroyed By HP

    First we quote the immortal words of our national poet, Lou Reed: Candy came from out on the Island
    In the backroom she was everybody’s darlin’
    But she never lost her head
    Even when she was browsing the Internet on a WebOS-powered Touchpad tablet. Oh, that’s not how it went? Sorry. After HP completely subsumed the riff of one of music’s seminal songs of change and… Read More

  • HP TouchPad: $699 In June?

    BGR has word from a source that the TouchPad will be launching in June for $699. Sounds about right to me — any later, and their goose is cooked. I’m not sure $699 is going to pull a lot of people, though, since what HP is selling is a little more subtle than Android, and the average consumer might not be able to pull themselves away from the default iPad, especially if the… Read More

  • LG G-Slate, Roll Out! Video Shows What Honeycomb Will Do With iOS

    With all the talk of Playbooks and TouchPads these days, it’s sad that poor old LG hasn’t had much traction with their 10-inch G-Slate aka The Optimus Pad. Well how’s this for traction? This bit of fanfic shows the Optimus Pad fighting, Michael Bay-style, high over a futuristic cityscape. While we all know Honeycomb is going to be amazing, did you know it could shoot fire… Read More

  • HP Files New Tablet Trademarks

    What’ll it be, then? TouchSlate? TouchCanvas? DuoPad? That’s what HP is thinking about calling its new slate line. They’re probably reserving those names for their best and brightest WebOS and Win7 devices. Read More

With the products in the following list lined up for release, 2011 is set to be a much more balanced year. Of course Apple will still be a major part of the news cycle, but everyone from Nintendo… Read More

  • Is This The PalmPad HP Will Announce At CES 2011? Nope.

  • Don't Believe The Hype, Tablets Aren't Going To Be This Year's Must-Have Gift

    Sorry, we were wrong. 2010 wasn’t the year of tablet like it was deemed back in January. We all had such high hopes for this year, too. We thought that every manufacturer was going to out some-sort of tablet, but that clearly didn’t happened. There are a few tablets from various manufacturers, but there are only really three tablets available now that aimed at the general… Read More
