HP TouchPad

 

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 was in the process of being subsumed its great mobile operating system was being eyed for much...

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 X7000 Touch Mouse with Wi-Fi (Black) review

 

The growing number of peripherals that use USB to charge, pair, and activate a wireless connection can create a traffic jam of dongles that forces you to choose between devices. Hewlett-Packard's $60 X7000 Wi-Fi Touch Mouse eliminates the need for a...

The lightweight, ergonomic HP X7000 Wi-Fi Touch Mouse transmits a pairing signal through a wireless network to liberate precious USB ports for other peripherals.

The X7000's ergonomic shape alienates left-handed users, the oversensitive touch scroll pad doesn't compare to the tactility of a classic scroll wheel, and the driver software lacks tools to reroute the functions of the mouse buttons.

The HP X7000 Wi-Fi Touch Mouse frees up USB ports by pairing through a wireless adapter, but its hypersensitive touch dial and accident-prone design make it frustrating to use.

HP TouchPad (Wi-Fi)

 

With solid hardware and a user-friendly operating system based around multitasking and intuitive organization, the HP TouchPad is the best non-Apple tablet we've tested. There aren't a lot of apps yet, but Android Honeycomb tablet manufacturers should...

Top-notch, intuitive user interface. Fast performance. 9.7-inch, 4:3 screen excellent for video and photos. Synergy features make integrating with social networks and websites easy. Strong Facebook app.

App is selection is limited at launch. No rear-facing camera or video-recording capabilities. Screen sometimes needs multiple taps. Almost twice as thick as the iPad 2.

Notifications are designed to be less invasive on the TouchPad than on Honeycomb tablets, but the end result is very similar: When you get an email message, a notification appears in the margin of your window, not in the middle of your screen where it...

HP TouchPad review

 

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.

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,...

The HP TouchPad has been a long time coming. It was first officially announced back in February, and we even got to play around with it a bit ...

WebOS is slick, polished and easy to use, excellent messaging and social media integration, great multi-tasker, solid construction

HP TouchPad

 

The HP TouchPad is a 9.7 inch tablet priced at a level that's on par with the iPad 2 and Galaxy Tab. The TouchPad weighs around 1.65 pounds, which is heavier than the iPad 2 and the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the Motorola Xoom as well. The tablet has a 9.7...

The HP TouchPad is the company's first webOS tablet. The device comes with a 9.7-inch 1024x768 pixels touchscreen, WiFi connectivity, GPS, Bluetooth, 32GB of built-in storage and a microSD memory card slot. As for the webOS itself, version 3.0 is made...

Verizon 4G LTE network is incredibly fast, 32GB microSD card included, Integrated kickstand works in portrait and landscape

Battery life is among the worst we�ve ever seen, No 4G LTE power toggle option, Kickstand in landscape orientation blocks microUSB port

The HP TouchPad is the very first webOS tablet ever built, and probably the last and only one — after HP recently announced it will abandon all devices running on the platform. Check out our full review of the HP TouchPad after the jump.
