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.

HP TouchPad Lasted 49 Days, Microsoft Kin Lasted 48, IBM Did it Best

HP TouchPad Lasted 49 Days, Microsoft Kin Lasted 48, IBM Did it Best

Let me see how simple I can make this because there are just a few facts that you should know, probably the most important facts of the day if you don't count most of the other facts from the HP/webOS situation everyone was freaking out about earlier today. Head to that link for most the details, then come back and remember this bit: HP is weighing spinning off its PC unit. This basically means that HP is looking to do SOMETHING with its PC unit, also known as HP's PSG, or Personal Systems Group, this sect of HP responsible for PCs, hand-held PCs such as mobile devices, software for the home, and more. SOMETHING means either a complete selling off of the PSG portion of the company or "spinning it off" meaning it would still sort of be part of the company, but it'd be like Beavis and Butthead's Daria or Happy Days' Mork and Mindy or Laverne and Shirley - separate but in the same universe.

HP Discontinues webOS Handsets, Touchpad, and Entire Ecosystem

HP Discontinues webOS Handsets, Touchpad, and Entire Ecosystem

Today HP revealed that they would be announcing that it will completely discontinue operations for all webOS devices. This affects the HP TouchPad and all webOS handsets. This does not mean that webOS will be cancelled altogether and forever, though it certainly doesn't bode well for those who've invested in the HP/webOS combination in the meantime. This comes after less than stellar sales on the TouchPad and a request from Best Buy for HP to take back all their tablets.

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 TouchPad unsold stock mountain prompts Best Buy ire

HP TouchPad unsold stock mountain prompts Best Buy ire

Best Buy is reportedly refusing to keep the huge, unsold stocks of HP TouchPad tablets it has in its warehouses, with the retailer said to have sold less than 10-percent of the 270,000 units it initially ordered. The company has apparently told HP that it wants to return some of that stock, AllThingsD's sources tell them, with sales that have only amounted to around 25,000 of the tablets. Another source said the estimate was on the "charitable" side and that, even with recent discounts and what has now become a permanent $100 price cut, sales are still underwhelming.

HP TouchPad’s $100 Discount Gets Permanent

HP TouchPad’s $100 Discount Gets Permanent

The HP TouchPad has been getting all sorts of discounts lately, which must have surely aggravated its earliest adopters that paid full price. Just two weeks after launch, the TouchPad already had $10 sliced off by Amazon and Best Buy followed by another $50 discount from HP and then a promotion for August 5-7 that offered a $100 discount. That last one, however, HP confirms is here to stay.

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.
