HP TouchPad appears on TigerDirect for $150 after rebate

Even though you've been told over and over again that there are absolutely and positively no more HP TouchPad devices out there on the market, you can always trust a group like TigerDirect to wrangle up the rest of the stragglers, this week selling the infamous tablets out for $149.99 after a $150 rebate. Of course you'll have to lie down $299.99 to get the tablet, then will get the rebate cash back eventually, but look! It's a TouchPad and you can buy it!

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.

HP may completely shutdown WebOS after all

According to the Guardian, internal HP sources have revealed that the company will be shutting down WebOS. HP had just confirmed yesterday that it will be keeping its PC business, reversing plans to spin-off the PSG division, and although it had insisted back in August that it would continue to support the WebOS software, a complete shutdown of the division looks to be imminent.

Dell Latitude ST official: 10 inches of Atom-powered Windows 7

We got a glimpse at the upcoming Dell Latitude ST earlier this week, and now the company has outed the juicy hardware details for all. Like the rest of the Latitude line, the ST tablet is aimed at business users, even if a 10.1-inch tablet is something we're not entirely used to in that space. The slate runs a full version of Windows 7 with enterprise-class customizations and some targeted accessories, detailed in the official pics below.

HP TouchPad may be revived with Windows 8

It looks like HP is still undecided about its TouchPad tablet. Despite the company's announcement back in August that it would discontinue webOS hardware, rumors now suggest that under Meg Whitman's lead as HP's new CEO, the company could revive the tablet by powering it with Windows 8. According to some HP employees, the company is currently testing the TouchPad with Windows 8 as part of a "proof-of-concept."

HP TouchSmart 9300 Elite Business PC Hands-on [Video]

In an effort to give the press (and via the press, consumers) a better look at the inner workings of their PC business, specifically their Elite line of PCs, HP has invited us to what's called the "HP Making of Elite Tour" which we've been enjoying throughout the first half of this week. What we did not expect but certainly welcome is a look at some totally complete PCs, here an HP TouchSmart 9300 Elite Business PC, an all-in-one computer that we first saw mention of back in February. WIth its deep-tilting full touch display, it seems custom made for Windows 8, an OS we know to be made to reflect the touch-based future of PCs. Will the 9300 add up?

Windows 8 phone functionality spotted

Windows 8 phone functionality spotted

Windows 8 could support voice calls, it's been suggested, after a Metro UI tile for phone functionality was spotted during a BUILD 2011 session last week. The slide, istartedsomething caught, has a Windows Phone 7 style "Missed Calls" dialog complete with times and dates of recent incoming voice calls. However, it's also possible that this could be a VoIP service, or indeed some form of wireless call management when pairing a Windows 8 tablet or phone with a Windows Phone 7 handset.

Why the Windows 8 Tablet Market will dodge the iPad

Why the Windows 8 Tablet Market will dodge the iPad

Just this past week we learned for the first time, or rather confirmed for the first time, that Windows 8 would be made to work not only on devices so large as servers carrying massive amounts of data, but devices so small as a tablet PC. We got the chance to take a look at an early iteration of a Windows 8 tablet as provided by Samsung and we got a taste of what it would mean to be working in a fully optimized Windows-based tablet environment. What I'm seeing here is not simply another contender in the already well-dominated by Apple tablet market. I'm seeing a whole new door being opened up for operating systems to thrive in the keyboard-less touch-display world.

Windows 8 proves there’s more to tablets than iPad

Windows 8 proves there’s more to tablets than iPad

Windows 8 is here, and it's all eyes on Microsoft's tablet strategy as the industry gages whether it's game-on or game-over against Apple's iPad might. You'd be forgiven for your skepticism, mind: Microsoft's previous idea of finger-friendliness was to ratchet up the font size and hope for the best. Yet with this latest demonstration, Windows 8 has shown itself to be not just shaping up as a solid OS, but as a truly interesting alternative to the current tablet template.
