So who doesn’t have a tablet nowadays? Answer: no one. The latest addition to the tablet market is the HP Touchpad which features webOS, which HP acquired the rights to after their recent purchase of Palm. Here’s the low-down, it’s a 9.7” screen and comes in either 16 or 32gb. Prices are $499.99 and $599.99, respectively.
I never got a chance to use webOS while Palm produced the devices because, quite frankly, it was insignificant in the realm of things. But, combined with HP’s acquisition and the rave reviews that the original webOS got, I finally checked it out.
One of the best features of webOS is it’s multi-tasking ability. To do this, each open application get a card which can be moved, re-arranged, and closed with a flick of a finger. The browser has flash allowing for embedded videos to be played seamlessly.
Overall, this is a pretty good device, but I feel that the iPad and Samsung’s Galaxy Tab (at the same price points) are better options as far as hardware build and software quality.
