08/22/2011, Despite the heartbreaking news of HP terminating its webOS products – not everybody’s feeling down about it. Microsoft recently took advantage about the situation and extended a hand to webOS developers by offering free phones, dev tools and training. In just 22 hours after the announcement was made, over 500 developers expressed their interest in jumping onboard the Windows Phone development team, surely with many more on the way. While […]
08/22/2011, With HP’s recent decision to stop producing webOS devices and its decision to not license the operating system to other manufacturers, it really looks like webOS as we know it has received the final nail in its coffin. If you’re upset about it, you’re not the only one, and recent price cuts and refunds won’t be bringing this OS back to life, however it might not be too late to […]
08/22/2011, webOS is certainly an enigma – it certainly does look rather pretty on paper, but somehow in the strange scheme of things, webOS did not really become the next big thing as certain quarters expected. The recent killing off of the HP TouchPad might have proved to be the nail in webOS’ coffin. With HP refunding early adopters of the HP TouchPad, not to mention introducing a massive price cut […]
08/21/2011, This week, HP announced that its TouchPad tablets would be receiving a massive price reduction, with the price of the 16GB version dropping to only $99. While most consumers seemed pretty pleased – after all, they could finally try out a webOS device without investing too much. But there was a group of people who weren’t too pleased about the price cut – the early adopters of the HP TouchPad.
08/19/2011, HP may have decided to terminate its webOS devices but that doesn’t mean existing tablets that have already been built will magically disappear. And since they won’t be selling anymore webOS tablets in the future, they’ve decided to get rid of the existing tablets the fastest way they know how to (well, second fastest if you include incinerating them all) – by having a fire sale! In a memo that […]
08/19/2011, As most are aware, HP had overnight announced that they would be discontinuing webOS, and naturally this was a shock to many – potential customers, current owners of HP’s webOS tablet, the TouchPad, as well as retailers who may have placed huge orders on the TouchPad.
08/19/2011, As it was shockingly revealed, HP announced that they would be discontinuing their webOS tablets and smartphones. It seems that the reason behind this was that their platform simply could not compete with iOS and Android, thus they had to throw in the towel and minimize their losses. It also appears that the hardware that HP had given its webOS team stopped them from being creative and innovative due to […]
08/18/2011, In the wake of slow sales of WebOS devices, HP has announced that it is terminating its line of WebOS devices, which includes the TouchPad Tablet and the smartphones. HP has announced this as it revealed its quarterly revenue of $32.2 Billion, up slightly when compared to last year. If there’s one thing to take away from this announcement, it is this: competing in the hardware space is extremely tough […]
08/17/2011, HP’s latest webOS smartphone the Pre 3 is finally available now – in Europe. No word on when we’ll be seeing it on this side of the world, but if you’re looking to get the Pre 3 in Europe, just head over to HP’s online Palm Eurostore. The phone is currently in stock and the 8GB Pre 3 can be picked up for £299.00 with a shipping time of 1-2 […]
08/16/2011, Let’s face it, HP’s webOS platform is doing rather dismally compared to the big boys such as iOS and Android. In terms of performance, there doesn’t seem to be much complaints but what it lacks is perhaps a solid set of native apps along with a great app market, something that iOS and Android have managed to get right.
08/15/2011, It’s been many months since the HP Pre 3 was announced to the public, and we’re still not any closer to seeing the device on sale. Well, all that changed last Friday, when the folks over at precentral spotted an entry for the HP Pre 3 on the help & support section of the Orange UK website. Now it’s by no means a confirmation about the phone being released soon, […]
08/08/2011, Interested in purchasing the new HP TouchPad tablet that features a faster internet connection than the one available now? Great news, because it looks like the HP TouchPad 4G could be almost upon us. The webOS 3 tablet headed for AT&T’s HSPA+ network was recently spotted as being available for pre-order on Amazon’s website. And like most 4G devices, the tablet isn’t going to come cheap. I wonder how long […]
08/03/2011, Recently we reported about HP sending out a document to developers, encouraging them to start writing Pre 3 apps. The document also mentioned that the Pre 3 phones are currently undergoing app compatibility tests – which hinted that the phone is probably ready for the public. Well, the folks over at ZDnet UK weren’t satisfied with just a hint, and managed to get in touch with HP for confirmation about […]
08/01/2011, Fancy some Over The Air (OTA) goodness from HP? The world’s top computer manufacturer has just announced the latest webOS update that will arrive on your spanking new tablet via the OTA method, moving webOS up a notch to version 3.0.2, where it is touted to improve the TouchPad’s performance and reliability. No kidding, Sherlock, most updates are supposed to do stuff like that, so this is pretty much keeping […]
