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!

Nintendo patent outlines Wii Remote touchpad accessory

Nintendo patent outlines Wii Remote touchpad accessory

I like it when patents surface from places like Apple, Nintendo and others that show off what we will probably see in the future from the country. The latest patent to surface is from Nintendo and it shows an accessory that appears to show a way to turn the Wii Remote into a touchpad. The patent app line art shows a device that slips onto the Remote.

TouchPad gets webOS 3.0.4 as backorder slates ship

The death of the HP TouchPad has been a slow and prolonged one. The tablet seems to be in the final death throws right now though. HP is apparently finally shipping out the last batch of the TouchPads right now. Nate over at The Digital Reader reports that he received an email from HP telling him his tablet has shipped. Some folks won't be that lucky though, HP has said it oversold the tablets it had left.

Logitech unveils Wireless TouchPad for Windows

Logitech has taken a page from Apple by offering its own version of the Magic Trackpad, but designed for Windows PCs. The device is simply called the Logitech Wireless Touchpad and provides a 5-inch multi-touch surface free of any physical buttons. However, its looks are certainly a lot less elegant than its Mac counterpart.

HP TouchPad gets Android port multitouch support

I would wager that none of the hard-core tech guys and gals were surprised that the HP TouchPad with webOS failed. I think most of us knew that would happen when we first heard that webOS was coming to a tablet. I never understood why HP though with the WebOS smartphones not doing well that a tablet would do well. If you are the owner of a TouchPad, there is a lot of work on getting the tablet to run Android underway. Early ports like the CyanogenMod could boot, but the touchscreen didn’t function.

Woot Offers TouchPad Buyers $100 and Star Wars Defense

Woot Offers TouchPad Buyers $100 and Star Wars Defense

If you're an avid South Park fan like every good god-fearing American in North America and myself are, you remember the episode in which there's a court case that lawyer Johnnie Cochran wins by using the Chewbacca defense, a method in which he speaks about the Star Wars character tied to several factoids about his living situation in order to utterly confuse the jury and ultimately win the case. It appears today that the folks at Woot are pulling a similar hilarious trick, this time using Chewbacca's good friend Lando Calrissian, and in this case offering early adopter purchasers of the HP TouchPad a $99 partial refund for their troubles in order to make them less mad at the fact that they payed full price before the recent fire sale of said tablet.

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.
