The HP TouchPad, the Michael Myers-like tablet that just won't die, just popped up on Woot for a pretty cheapish $220. Two benji's and a jacksonw will score you the 32GB version. That's a little more expensive than it was during the great firesale of 2011 but with webOS becoming open source, maybe there's value in it!
The HP Touchpad just jumped up a few notches on the tablet scale now that the first public release of CyanogenMod is available for download.
The latest bit in the increasingly amusing Laurel and Hardy routine that is the HP TouchPad: HP just tried to sue itself for offering HP TouchPad refunds. No, seriously. This is a thing that happened.
After killing the TouchPad and fire sale-ing them at a $100 to get rid of them, HP has announced that they'll still make TouchPads through October. What in the deepest depths of hell is going on?
It all happened so fast. First Best Buy denied being able to sell the HP's all-but-dead tablet during last weekend's firesale. A few days later they did, selling out quick. Now reports say they have more to sell. What gives?
The HP TouchPad for $99 seems too good to be true. "It is," your nerd friend will tell you. "It'll never get software updates. There won't be new apps for it. It's a dead platform. Don't buy it." Screw them.
The following post is based on pricing that was seen over the weekend directly through Amazon; the current prices on the site are reflective only of what Amazon's retail partners are charging. There are also reports that Amazon offered the TouchPad as a GoldBox deal, although that hasn't been confirmed at this time.
HP has officially killed webOS. Offed it with two dinky sentences in a dinky little press release. It's sad, sure. But what about everyone who bought the $500 (then $450, then $400) hunk of now-scrap metal that's called TouchPad? Updated.
It's got the potential to be amazing, but HP's TouchPad has been hindered by a sluggish brain. If you still really want one, Woot's daily deal slashes $120 off the price of the 16GB model. Hurry!
The TouchPad 4G is just like the TouchPad I wanted to love so badly—but it's got a faster 1.5GHz processor and it's on AT&T's sorta-4G network (with GPS powers too).
Oh Snap. HP may be launching a new glossy, white webOS tablet in August. This new model comes hot on the heels of the original TouchPad which launched last week.
TechRepublic took a new HP Touchpad and ripped it to shreds out of curiosity. What'd they find? For starters, it's built more like a computer, which is to say that most of the components are user replaceable (including the battery).
I am so goddamned tired of the iPad. Which is why I was so excited for the TouchPad. And that's why I feel so completely crushed right now.
