HP Releases a New Batch of TouchPad for Existing Orders

Written on September 08, 2011 by Lulu

0 person

HP releases another batch of their discontinued HP TouchPad to fulfill those existing orders from their customers.

HP’s Small and Medium Business division sent out an e-mail to its customers who placed orders but did not receive shipment of the now-discontinued TouchPad. The company told its customers that it will start fulfilling their orders at the promised discounted price – $99 – in about six to eight weeks. The e-mail was sent directly at SMB customers only, and does not apply to other customers who might have unfulfilled orders from the regular home channel.

The time frame shows that the company would be fulfilling the said orders by the end of October, which is similar to the company’s stated intent of shipping a new batch of units by the end of its current fiscal quarter. HP has not yet unveiled the quantity of unfulfilled orders for the webOS tablet, but it is said that the firm or its suppliers had enough parts and inventory on hand to build at least 100,000 TouchPad.

BestBuy Sells TouchPad Despite of HP’s Decision

Written on August 22, 2011 by Lulu

0 person

BestBuy put their remaining HP TouchPad on sale despite of the company's decision to end all all hardware development and production of the said device.

BestBuy has reconsidered its position in selling the TouchPad again in US despite HP’s decision to shutter its webOS division, ending all hardware development and production. Instead of sending back unsold ToucPads to HP, BestBuy decided to put all the remaining units in their hands on sale.

While not all stores have stocks of HP’s TouchPad, those that do only have them on hand in limited numbers. It is also expected that it will quickly sell out of any remaining stocks on hand. BestBuy stores which have units in stock will be selling the 16GB Wi-Fi only model for $100, while the 32GB Wi-Fi model will be sold for $150. The stocks of the said device are limited to one unit per customer, while all the sales will be final with no exchange or refunds policy offered for any reason.

The expected rush for the remaining units represents an interesting scenario for HP. Questions are likely to be asked as to whether it exited the market too soon – given the renewed interest in the product – despite of support for it being severed beyond its 12 month warranty.

HP is Searching for Adopters of its WebOS

Written on June 30, 2011 by Adam Eve

HP is currently in negotiation to various companies that are interested to license their WebOS.

As reported by Bloomberg, HP CEO – Leo Apotheker – announced that the company is negotiating with a number of companies who are interested to adopt their WebOS mobile software. Leo Apotheker said in an interview in Beijing last Monday:

“We are talking to a number of companies. I can share with you that a number of companies have expressed interest. We are continuing our conversations.”

However, Leo Apotheker declined to elaborate on the detail, and refused to give a definite time frame on when the partnership would take action. The HP CEO didn’t even comment on the rumors that Samsung is one of the interested parties to adopt the HP WebOS. Currently, the Korean conglomerate is using Google’s Android OS in its line of Galaxy smartphones and tablets.

Panda-colored HP Veer 4G Hitting AT&T

Be ready for some pint-sized, panda-colored mobile fun with the HP Veer 4G for AT&T.

Based on the leaked photo that Gadg saw, the HP Veer 4G will be hitting AT&T shores and will be coming in white. Well, two tones to be precise. This marks the first time a webOS device to come in such a color, following Apple’s remarkable entry to the white category with its iPhone.

There’s little Gadg can root out from the pictures, but expect HP to breakdown the details of the smallest webOS phone tomorrow on Veer’s launch party in Los Angeles.

Photos and details for HP Veer 4G are available after the skip.

Today’s Tablet Roundup: HP TouchPad Set for June Release; ASUS Eee Pad Transformer FCC Approval Hints Closer Breakdate

Written on March 15, 2011 by Kristoff Jones

0 person

The HP TouchPad and ASUS Eee Pad are soon coming out as they enter the battlefield dominated by a fruit.

There’s no stopping the Apple iPad 2 from dominating the tablet market once again, but perhaps the HP Touchpad and the ASUS Eee Pad could gather up some momentum before they make a release date. The HP Touchpad is slated for a June release while the much-hyped webOS for PC beta is set for the end of 2011; the ASUS Eee Pad on the other hand has just passed the FCC, brewing speculations that the tablet contender is out for a release really soon.

Say Hello to HP/Palm TouchPad WebOS Tablet; Impressive Specs Detailed

Written on February 10, 2011 by Kristoff Jones

3 persons

Thinking beyond wasn't as ambitious as we expected from HP/Palm, but the TouchPad webOS tablet still hits all the right spots, including Flash.

There’s nothing like the smell of a newly unveiled webOS tablet, and the smell that HP and Palm’s new TouchPad, which has just been unveiled at the ‘Think Beyond’ event, is certainly as sweet as the summer breeze. Possessing stellar features which empasizes more on the superiority of the interface rather than the hardware, the Touchpad looks like it’s ready to take on the tablet market by storm. We just have a little issue about its uniqueness against the apps-driven iOS and Android OS. Plus the entire hardware looks awfully like the iPad and other tablets available. But what’s good about the TouchPad is that it fully supports Flash (something Apple has been so hard-headed on), meaning it allows you to view videos around the web.

Check out the specs after the break!
