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.

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 Palm Pre Hitting Stores On July 8th

If you are a fanatic of HP’s Palm Pre lineup, you’ll be excited to hear that July 8 will be the day it ships, at least in the U.K. The smartphone can be pre-ordered already and will arrive as a SIM-free, unlocked price of 349 pounds, or about $600 USD.

The Pre 3 runs WebOS 2.2 and rocks alright specifications, nothing as flashy as the new HTC phones, but what can you expect from HP in the mobile department. The phone comes as a quad band unit and weighs 156 grams.

HP Launches Enticing TouchPad Infomercials

Hewlett-Packard has finally released the videos we’ve all been looking for, videos demonstrating the awesome new features on the new HP TouchPad. The four new videos demonstrate HP Synergy engine, Just Type for searching, Multitasking with cards, and an all-new notifications system for the webOS tablet design.

The first video demonstrates synergy, a way to consolidate information from e-mail sources, calendars, social networks, photo sharing sources, and social media comments, including automatic updating.

Qualcomm Announces Dual Core 1.5GHz Mobile CPU

Qualcomm has shown off its dual-core mobile processor this week at Computex. Qualcomm’s pride and joy 1.2GHz processor has received a refresh and now boasts speeds of up to 1.5GHz. Under the names: MSM826, MSM8860, and QSD8672, the zippy mobile processors are expected to hit smartphones later this year.

Many of the current mobile manufacturers are already designing their phones based around the processors (and we are hoping larger battery capacities too!). In a world where two cores are better than one, this will mean for better mobile gaming, multimedia enjoyment, and faster “everything” on your mobile device.

HP’s Nova Dartfish In The Works

Hewlett-Packard has said in the past that its Mobile WebOS platform could be used on platforms other than smartphones and tablets. With this information in mind, HP is creating a new device that will essentially be a laptop running the mobile OS. The screen resolution will be a meager 1024 x 768 pixel resolution, identical to the HP TouchPad and have full support for WiFi, Bluetooth, and a non-swappable battery.

Twitter Creates Optimized Web App

Twitter has just announced a new version of twitter.com for mobile devices, worldwide. Twitter calls it a web app although it is actually a website. The “web app” was created to provide a high quality Twitter experience on high-end touchscreen devices, whether or not the device came packed with a Twitter app.

The company stated that this web app was specifically designed for smartphones and tablets that have more advanced browsers. Twitter also mentions that there are significant improvements that take advantage of today’s high-end mobile browsers such as touch gestures and a large screen.

HP Veer Couples With AT&T For May 15th

HP has recently announced that its newest WebOS phone, the Veer 4G will launch on May 15th over the AT&T network. The Veer was originally announced in February as a newly designed WebOS device. It features a small form-factor, and is no larger than a credit card in length. The phone has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard and is handled on a 2.57-inch 400 x 320 pixel touchscreen.

HP’s New Mobile Operating System- LEAKED!

We’ve waited long enough and now are able to catch the first glimpse of Hewlett-Packard’s next mobile operating system, WebOS 3.0 Beta 1. Thanks to a recent leak of the webOS 3.0 emulator we can get a feel for what this operating system will be all about. To start off, like all other operating systems you will have a basic homescreen that just contains your wallpaper. To access your applications, you can use the arrow/home key at the bottom right to bring up a tabbed launcher. When the user chooses to rearrange any apps they will feel as though they are navigating through Apple’s iOS.

Tapping on the device menu in the top right corner allows the user to view the battery percentage, brightness, VPN options, Airplane Mode, Rotation Lock and the Mute feature. Users will be able to see the notification area at the top of the screen rather than the bottom of the screen, a minor change. When you launch the browser,
