HP TouchPad official pricing and launch date for UK confirmed

Vince reviewed the HP TouchPad today and in the end, he figures the hardware in the tablet is uninspiring. That seems to be a recurring theme with many of the tablets that hit the market recently. I bet a lot of people hoping that HP would knock it out of the park are disappointed today. We also posted up our review of WebOS and found that it was actually pretty good, just hampered by the hardware inside the TouchPad.

HP TouchPad Review

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. Palm's mobile platform always seemed to good to be left solely to smartphones, and the HP TouchPad is the inevitable result. 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.

Is the Market too Crowded for webOS to be Successful?

Is the Market too Crowded for webOS to be Successful?

Let’s start off by remembering that the smartphone market is still relatively early. Even though it is one of the hottest topics around, smartphones as a whole still only represent less than 30% of the total global mobile phone market. That being said the smart phone market grew 75% last quarter alone and is expected to grow at that pace each quarter for the next few years.

Right now RIM, Apple and their iOS and a host of Android vendors dominate the smart phone sector. Windows Phone 7 is on the far fringe of this market and HP’s webOS devices still farther yet. So the real question is in a market dominated right now by three companies is there room for more? The short answer is yes and here is why.

The iPad 2 isn't even official yet, but already the speculation over the third-generation version of the Apple tablet has begun in earnest. Prompted by Daring Fireball's John Gruber predicting that HP might struggle with the Touchpad because "If my theory is right, they’re not only going to be months behind the iPad 2, but if they slip until late summer, they might bump up against the release of the iPad 3," TechCrunch sources stepped up with the supposedly solid news that there would be two iPad refreshes in 2011: the iPad 2, imminently, and then the iPad 3 this fall.

Today we were treated to a presentation by HP that might completely turn webOS around, out of the dark spaces of everyone's doubt centers and into a very plausible option place for many soon-to-be seekers of tablets in this new market. The tablet in question is the HP TouchPad, running webOS 3.0 and looking like not a half bad idea for a workstation on the go.
