Is 16GB HP TouchPad A Failed Tablet?

Hewlett-Packard launched it’s new HP TouchPad tablet recently in July. The price of the TouchPad initially was $499. But, what has caused this Tablet to land at Woot with just a price of $379 ???

DEAL: HP TouchPad Is Available For $50 Less

In the current run in the dominating tablet industry, it is really hard to keep up. I reckon HP has realized this fact pretty quickly.

HP recently released its HP touchpad, a tablet computer which featured HP’s WebOS 3.0 operating system. Unfortunately, contrary to what HP had hoped, the device had not been able to garner a lot of success because of its competitors such as the iPad 2 and Motorola Xoom.

Intel is acquiring Fulcrum Microsystems (a networking chip company) for an unknown amount of money. The buyout is expected to be the result of Intel’s efforts to boost current network offerings.

Fulcrum was founded in 1999 and they currently design Ethernet switches that are used in data centers. Fulcrum’s 10GB Ethernet and 40GB Ethernet switch products are expected to work well with Intel processors and Ethernet controller offerings.

Hewlett Packard Provides Robust Network For BMW

The world’s largest computer maker, HP, had announced yesterday that it will be partnering up with German car manufacturer BMW. The partnership will mean that BMW will benefit from HP’s networking architecture.

We’re not sure what the partnership will have on HP sales, but one can assume that sales would rise given the prestige BMW currently holds as being one of the top luxury car makers.

HP Plans August Release For 64GB TouchPad

According to some leaked roadmap slides, Hewlett-Packard is planning to follow up on its just-released first TouchPad tablet with a “white glossy” model due out in August that sports a more powerful processor and 64GB of internal storage.

There will be a 4G edition with HSPA+ model of the TouchPad as well which is tipped to arrive on AT&T. Apart from the change in modem, everything else about this model will be the same as the current 32GB model.

Apple To Beat HP In Mobile PC Sales

Apple’s ascendency looks to continue in 2012. If the hugely popular iPad is categorized as a portable computer, it’ll mean that Apple will bump HP off its top spot of lead mobile PC vendor. With sales expected to hit 60 million next year, and the total amount of tablets shipped only a little above that at 80 million, the potential for the change in power is certainly possible.

The revelation comes from industry sources who spoke with DigiTimes. They said Apple is expected to ship a total of 60 million iPads in 2012, out of 80 million total tablets shipped.

Phone Rivals Gang Up, Outbid Google

Bankrupt telecom firm Nortel has finally flogged its hotly contested portfolio of mobile patents to Microsoft and Apple for $4.5 billion, leaving Google’s mobile mad men and Android architects royally miffed.

According to BBC News, a consortium of six firms led by Apple and Microsoft spent billions on the patents, amid fears that Mountain View could establish a monopoly on mobile if it secured the bankrupt comms firm’s patent portfolio with its opening bid of $900 million.

HP Considering Licensing Its webOS

Computer manufacturer Hewlett-Packard is currently speaking with various companies over its webOS mobile operating system. Sources claim that future Samsung tablets may sport the HP mobile OS. The move would give manufacturers such as Samsung a choice other than Windows or Android, giving consumers more options when purchasing a tablet.

It would be a win/win situation, in fact, if the deal went through. HP would be able to reach a larger user base through its webOS and tablet PC makers would be able to grab a larger portion of the market.

HP Creates App Recommendation Magazine Called “Pivot”

HP is currently working on its own magazine specially designed for its new TouchPad. The publication is called Pivot and its main goal is to help users find new and relevant apps to use.

HP’s TouchPad of course runs on HP’s own operating system, WebOS. The new catalog will contain app information based on interests, lifestyles, and recommendations from the lions den (AKA, the app developers themselves).

HP Bringing NFC To Phones And Tablets This Year

Hewlett-Packard said that it is considering implementing NFC technology (Near Field Communications) in its mobile handsets, and aims to bring the NFC phones to the U.S. market by the end of this year.

Bloomberg reports that two people familiar with the company’s direction have stated that HP will not only introduce NFC technology to its phones, but tablet PCs as well. Although this isn’t ground-breaking news that a large manufacturer like HP is adopting a soon-to-be trendy technology, it does offer us a time table of when we can expect major companies to jump on board with NFC.
