TouchPad review


Palm faithful and newcomers alike, behold: the TouchPad review. For some, this has been years in the making, for others (honestly, for most) this is a new and potentially interesting blip on the tablet radar. The team that brought you webOS — for...

Intuitive and natural user interface ; Crisp, clear display ; Phone pairing can be very useful

Sluggish, unfinished software throughout the OS ; Hardware quality feels cheap ; Developer support is thin right now

HP enters the tablet game with the webOS-powered TouchPad — but will it make a dent?

HP TouchPad review


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

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

Bulky hardware ; Occasionally spotty performance ; Very limited app selection

HP TouchPad review

The HP TouchPad provides a viable alternative for users not attracted to an iPad or one of the many Android devices.

HP TouchPad: Review


The TouchPad shares more than a few traits with the iPad, but the chunky form factor means it's closer to the original version instead of the sexier sequel. At 740g, it's the heaviest tablet we know of (the Wi-Fi iPad 2 weighs only 590g) and the 13.7mm...

Looks Good So Far


If it is half way decent will more than likely purchase one. Have to wonder how it will stack up against the Blackberry Playbook?

Flash Support, Supposedly a Wi-fi model only, and comes in a 32Gig memory format

Non that aware of so far. Wonder about battery life though

3 Reviews already?!


This tablet is not even out yet and there are 3 reviews (Including one comment!). CNET should not even allow the review of something that is not even out yet. It makes the rating system unreliable. I love WebOS and its notification system as well as...

Comes with WebOS 3.0

It's not out yet

You think iPad is user friendly? Just try the Touchpad!


iPad is king..for now. Out of all the tablets/smart phones that are already out there and those already announced for 2011, HP's WebOS is the most user friendly, dynamic, fun, and productive piece of operating system you will encounter, including the...

1. The most user friendly operating system that is available on any Tablet, Computer, Laptop, Net book. Even a caveman can use it!.... realy ; 2. True multitasking ; 3. Cloud Computing

Limited apps. Those of you who are app developers, stop worrying about "chicken or the egg" phenomenon. Build the apps!... users will come in droves......don't believe it?...just look at the OS

Sounds great, but wat about 3rd party apps and price.


Form factor looks great, and would love for HP to include an App that lets you clean its registry, cache, etc. to help with all the wear and tear its gonna endure. Hopefully the next HP Tablet gets upgraded with a 3D screen, 1TB HDD, a quad-core CPU...

Great specs, but thought since it was HP, they would roll out a quad-core heavy hitter. I would love to see the Android Market coversion for this, it should help them add to the HP fanfare with those who are undecided about app availablity

Plz, plz, plz include the wireless keyboard and docking stations with the tablet because when i go to best buy, they are out and don't know when the next shipment arrives ; Price? keep it below $500 and u got a deal, and more and i'll get a Playbook
