HP TouchPad review

 

HP webOS finally arrives on tablets, but how does it stand up to the competition?

Handsome design ; Reasonable price ; Good multitasking ; HP Pivot is great

Performance is inconsistent ; Screen is dim ; Fingerprint-tastic ; No video-out

When HP bought Palm, it was widely considered to have been mostly fuelled by the desire to acquire the webOS operating system.

HP TouchPad review

 

HP is the latest PC maker to jump into tablets - and in entering the market, it has immediately become the latest tablet maker to land under Apple's shadow. The HP TouchPad is the first tablet based on the WebOS mobile operating system, which HP...

Many of the issues I've encountered - the performance problems, the bad Web-page handling, the poor text and graphics rendering, and perhaps even the off-base colours – should be addressable via software fixes in the future. HP said that it had an...

HP TouchPad review: Can webOS carve out a niche?

 

the dual-core 1.2 GHz processor fails to deliver snappy performance. When you factor in price, a missing rear camera and limited app library, the TouchPad is a tough sell

As things get older they tend to get bigger. It's the same for people, corporations, models of cars, budget deficits... and so it is for webOS. As Palm was in the process of being subsumed its great mobile operating system was being eyed for much...

webOS 3.0 is slick ; Solid Facebook and e-mail apps ; Touch compatibility with Pre 3
