HP TouchPad Review – With Our Deepest Condolences

 

HP TouchPad Review - It may look strange to post a review of a dead product, but, hell, it was almost finished when the news broke, and it might make a great digital obituary

The HP TouchPad did not stand up to expectations, so much that it died before getting a chance to be improved. We express our deepest condolences to the Palm team who invented the brilliant webOS user interface.

HP TouchPad Review

 

When HP announced the TouchPad this spring, we got pretty excited. We've been fans of webOS since it debuted on the Palm Pre, and when HP acquired Palm in 2010, the operating system seemed like a natural fit for a tablet. The TouchPad is also the only...

Decent battery life ; Intuitive and unique OS ; Great screen size and shape

No rear camera ; webOS is sluggish ; App design is sloppy ; Tries too hard to mimic the iPad ; Heavy and bulky ; Fingerprint magnet

If HP can speed up the TouchPad and build the app library up more, we think there is a future for the platform, but for now, we'd still opt for an iPad or Android tablet.

The HP TouchPad Review: webOS on the Big Screen

 

If this were a race of numbers, Apple would have already won. It isn't. The iPad 2, as successful as it is, isn't perfect. There's tons of room for innovation and we're seeing its competitors offer clear examples of that innovation. As with any market,...

Without the performance issues and bugs, the TouchPad would likely be my favorite tablet on the market today. I've been begging for a tablet that lets me be more productive and HP delivered that with the TouchPad. The biggest issue is that if you...

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 (32GB)

 

HP could have taken the easy way out. Like many computer manufacturers today, HP could have easily jumped on the Google Android bandwagon, lobbed out a Honeycomb tablet, and called it a day. Instead, through hard work and some key acquisitions (most...

The HP TouchPad uses Palm's unique WebOS interface and delivers Adobe Flash-enabled Web browsing, Beats audio enhancement, and impressive compatibility with third-party calendar, messaging, and e-mail services

The TouchPad has a thick, smudgy design, offers no rear camera or HD video capture, includes a limited app selection, and its unique cards system of multitasking isn't as fully utilized as it could be

The TouchPad would have made a great competitor for the original iPad, but its design, features, and speed put it behind today's crop of tablet heavyweights.

HP’s WebOS Tablet Plays Solid Hand Against a Stacked Deck

 

When the chips are down and the cards have been dealt, do you go big or go home? With the debut of its TouchPad tablet, HP's answer is clear: "We're all in, baby."

This is going to sound like a broken record, but the TouchPad is yet another tablet that feels unfinished. The interface is more elegant and intuitive than what you'll find on Android Honeycomb tablets, and we appreciate the time-saving features such...

Multitasking-friendly interface, Powerful Beats Audio speakers, Integrated Skype video calling, Time-saving Just Type feature, Keyboard has dedicated number row, Can send and receive texts and phone calls when paired with webOS phone

Sluggish, buggy performance, Heavy and smudge-prone design, Lackluster apps/game selection, Below-average battery life, No tabbed browsing, Can't yet edit or create Office documents

HP TouchPad Review: Not Ready for the Tablet Big Leagues

 

Hewlett-Packard is the latest PC maker to jump into tablets--and in entering the market, it has immediately become the latest tablet maker to land under Apple's shadow. The HP TouchPad is the first tablet based on the WebOS mobile operating system,...

Terrific-sounding audio ; WebOS has a slick, tablet-friendly design

Slow performance ; Limited functionality ; Poor app selection

The first WebOS tablet gets some things right, but stumbles more than it succeeds.

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

 

We've been demanding a tablet running webOS for years now, and it's taken HP's new stewardship of the software to guide just that onto store shelves. Palm's mobile platform always seemed to good to be left solely to smartphones, and the HP TouchPad is...

None of those middling advantages are likely to help HP in its biggest test: encouraging developers to take webOS seriously. The recent confirmation that talks to license the platform are ongoing could well do more for it, if HP can get a sufficiently...
