Samsung webOS rumors reignite amid ex-HP PC VP grab

Speculation that Samsung will purchase webOS from HP continues, with the latest whispers out of notebook manufacturers suggesting that it's the little-loved smartphone and tablet platform that the Korean firm has its eye on, not HP's PC business. Samsung has already snapped up the former VP of HP's PC marketing team, DigiTimes reports, to give it a boost in its notebook sales; now, so the talk goes, it's considering a play for webOS.

HP Continues webOS Push with Free TouchPad Apps Galore

HP Continues webOS Push with Free TouchPad Apps Galore

As you may have already heard, that being if you do not live under a rock on the moon of course, that HP recently announced they'd be discontinuing production of their webOS-related products, including the TouchPad tablet, as well as looking to take an alternate path with webOS - more than likely attempting to keep the platform alive by licensing it out to alternate hardware manufacturers in the near future. While it seemed to some that announcing they'd be giving up on the hardware end of webOS in the first place sounded the death bell for the mobile OS, HP has taken a seemingly well conceived gamble and made the HP TouchPad webOS tablet cost between $99 and $149, resulting in monster sales and sold-out stores all across the USA. What they're doing today is taking major advantage of the situation by offering up a handful of otherwise pay-to-own apps as completely free downloads.

HP iPad 2 webOS testing double TouchPad performance says insider

HP iPad 2 webOS testing double TouchPad performance says insider

HP was painfully aware of the TouchPad's hardware shortcomings, insider sources have suggested, with ports of webOS running "over twice as fast" on Apple's iPad 2. While initial reviews - ours included - complained of occasional sluggishness from the TouchPad's 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon APQ8060 processor, webOS engineers within HP were also supposedly vocal in their complaints about the hardware, The Next Web's tipster whispered to them.

Amazon, Samsung, HTC… who’ll be webOS’ new suitor?

Amazon, Samsung, HTC… who’ll be webOS’ new suitor?

HP's decision to amputate its webOS hardware line and attempt to tourniquet the cash gush has left the platform's future in the air. The TouchPad and Pre lines may be dead in the water, but HP has made it clear that the company is "not walking away from webOS" but instead, according to developer relations VP for the platform Richard Kerris, intends to "explore the best hardware partner for it." Who, though, might be in the market for a plucky platform yet to find a manufacturer who can match it with appealing hardware? With the mobile segment in its current flux, there are some big names out there who could well be interested.

HP offers $50 app credit for TouchPad early-adopters; Woot sells 612 units

HP has offered TouchPad early-adopters a $50 App Catalog credit, in an attempt to stem the tide of ill-feeling after the company discounted the webOS slate so soon after it went on sale. The voucher is available to anybody who bought their TouchPad in the US between July 1 and August 4. Meanwhile, the first feedback on the success of TouchPad price cuts has emerged, with the news that Woot's sale - which saw the 16GB version cut down by $120 - saw 612 tablets sold.

HP TouchPad: Desperately Discounted

HP TouchPad: Desperately Discounted

How much did you pay for your tablet? If you picked up an HP TouchPad in the past day or so, you could have shaved anything up to $200 off the list price for the webOS slate, as HP and its retail partners kick off a round of aggressive discounting. It's a risky way to boost sales: the TouchPad is a mere month into the market and met with mixed reviews, and it would be easy to see this as HP's tablet project falling flat on its touchscreen face.

HP: Enterprise, not iPad, our TouchPad target

HP: Enterprise, not iPad, our TouchPad target

HP has dismissed criticisms of its TouchPad tablet - which SlashGear reviewed earlier this week - suggesting that incoming webOS updates will smooth out any rough edges and that, rather than taking on the iPad 2 in the consumer market, the company's main target is business users. "We think there’s a better opportunity for us to go after the enterprise space and those consumers that use PCs" HP VP of worldwide developer relations Richard Kerris told The Loop, going on to point out that the tablet segment is still far from saturated.

HP TouchPad Review

We've been demanding a tablet running webOS for years now, and it's taken HP's new stewardship of the software to guide just that onto store shelves.

Problem is, the iPad has already made its presence well and truly known, dominating the consumer tablet market, and Android's Honeycomb drive gains OEM support by the week. Can the multitasking charms of webOS 3.0 promise the TouchPad a bright future, or is it simply a case of too late to the party? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.
