HP: webOS tablets could return in 2013

HP could return to webOS to make new tablets in 2013, using the freshly open-sourced platform for larger mobile devices though smartphones are still off the menu. Having announced that webOS will be an open-source platform moving forward, and then confirmed that there are no immediate plans for new webOS devices, HP CEO Meg Whitman conceded in an interview with TechCrunch that tablets could still be on the cards, albeit after the company's Windows 8 push.

HP $99 TouchPad edges out Android in non-iPad tablet sales

HP $99 TouchPad edges out Android in non-iPad tablet sales

HP's TouchPad fire-sale scored the company the second place in US tablet sales, market stats have shown, with the $99 webOS slate edging ahead of Samsung's entire Galaxy Tab line-up. The Korean firm slipped to third place - behind Apple, in first, and HP, in second - with 16-percent of retail tablet sales between January and October 2011, the NPD Group found, while HP managed 17-percent thanks no doubt to its aggressive discounting. Total non-Apple tablet sales amounted to more than 1.2m units the analysts suggest.

HP TouchPad Go 7-inch WebOS tablet emerges

HP TouchPad Go 7-inch WebOS tablet emerges

When HP first launched its 10-inch TouchPad webOS tablet, it was planning a follow-up with a smaller 7-inch model called the TouchPad Go. Unfortunately, with HP's abrupt decision to scrap the entire webOS ecosystem back in August, it's unlikely that we'll be seeing the TouchPad Go hitting the market. But we do get a glimpse at what could have been with several photos of the device surfacing today.

Panasonic Toughpad A1 and Toughpad B1 Android tablets revealed

This week the folks at Panasonic have revealed one tablet and named a second, the first being the Toughpad A1, a 10.1-inch Android 3.2 Honeycomb tablet with a processor from no less than Marvell, the most elusive chipmaker of all. Of course Marvell has appeared in mobile devices before, but the last time we spoke about them in regards to a mobile device was in the Vizio Tablet, then before that was a Chinese smartphone and on the Chumby 8. Here we see Marvell sitting inside the tablet with a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, this aside 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and a microSD card slot for expansion up to 32GB more.

Slate 2 resurrects HP’s tablet dreams with Windows 7, on sale this month

HP's original Slate 500 was a highly anticipated tablet that failed to make a splash, but found itself a loyal group of followers. Now months after the TouchPad's sadly curtailed run, HP is returning to its Windows stomping grounds with the Slate 2, a refreshed model with some tweaks more appropriate for touch and pen-based input. The new Slate will improve on the first with six hours of quoted battery life - a 300% increase.

HP outs new 64GB TouchPad tablet with white case option, not for America

HP outs new 64GB TouchPad tablet with white case option, not for America

If you are a fan of the HP TouchPad, you are among the minority. This tablet has been flamed by many users due to issues and the fact that the tablet just isn’t as good as other offerings on the market for the money. We took issue with the tablet when we reviewed it too. Consumers responded to the lackluster reviews of the tablet and didn't buy leading to price cuts to try to woo buyers. Recently Best Buy even tried to get HP to buy the tablets back that it had in stock after selling only 25,000 of 270,000 it purchased according to sources.

HP CTO Phil McKinney demos TouchPad tablet controlling home appliances

HP has a lot in mind for the TouchPad tablet that runs WebOS other than just the standard tablet duties we are all familiar with. HP is going all out to reach that number one plus status that it dreams of and to oust the iPad as the top tablet on the market. HP has noted in the past that WebOS would come to devices other than the tablet and smartphones we know about with things like printers and appliances hinted at.

TouchPad will be “number one plus” tablet promises HP

TouchPad will be “number one plus” tablet promises HP

HP expects its tablet to be better than number one when it launches. I think the company may be setting its sights a little too high. HP says that it is calling the goal number one plus for the TouchPad tablet when it launches later this year. I guess an argument could be made with HP running away with the top spot in computer shipments, it is number one plus. The tablet market may prove to be a much harder nut to crack for HP though with the huge lead other firms like Apple have in the tablet realm.
