HP releases webOS Community Edition for TouchPads

Filed in: TabletsHPTouchPad

It was a few months ago when we got word of HP’s plans to release something called a “Community Edition” as an added part to webOS 3.0.5. Now, webOS Community Edition has been released for use on legacy TouchPad tablets. Users will be able to learn how the TouchPad works, make modifications and then eventually apply what they’ve learned to Open webOS 1.0 in the future.
Although the webOS team worked closely alongside the WebOS Internals to release webOS Community Edition, it’s not the same as Open webOS. The release of Open webOS 1.0 is expected to be released in September and will offer developers the ability to port webOS to their own devices and make use of open source technology integrat...

Is the Nexus 7 the only tablet in Google's plans?

Is the Nexus 7 the only tablet in Google's plans?

Posted on Jun 28, 2012 by MG1

This here is pure speculation, so we absolutely don't mind if you disagree with what you are about to read. Now that we've made that clear, let us present you with our (wild) hypothesis.
It is just that there is something about the Google Nexus 7 and its name. Think about it: it could have been named something else like the Google Nexus Tab, Google Nexus Slate, Google Nexus butter-on-toast, but no. We simply have a figure representing the device's display size. Why have a "7" at the end instead of some elegant moniker since there is no other Nexus tablet to confuse this one with?

Or in this case, shows the world. The latest bit of gossp revolves around Google's upcoming Nexus 7 tablet to be revealed at the company's I/O Conference this week, at least officially.

Google's document somehow landed in the hands of Gizmodo Australia, which is hosting images of the front, side, and back of the Nexus 7. It's a rather simple looking device with a textured finish and "Nex...

Fears of Windows tablet manufacturer apathy spurred Microsoft’s Surface development, despite insistence that the slates are intended to support not compete with OEM efforts, according the latest batch of rumors.

'Xbox Surface' tablet launch -- 7-inch tablet unveiling rumored

'Xbox Surface' tablet launch -- 7-inch tablet unveiling rumored

Posted on Jun 19, 2012 by MG1

Rumors and speculation have been flying since Microsoft announced last week that it was hosting a press conference in Los Angeles on Monday, and that might be exactly what the Redmond-based company was hoping for. Early well-sourced reports indicated that a Microsoft-branded tablet is on tap for the event, and a number of subsequent reports have said much of the same. TechCrunch later reported that we should expect a Barnes & Noble collaboration, but B&N squashed that rumor relatively quickly. Next up from the rumor mill? An “Xbox Surface” tablet with a 7-inch display, an ARM based TI processor, full HD 1080p-output and a 28-nanometer AMD graphics processor. An an interesting side note, Micr...

Microsoft announced Surface, a line of Windows 8 tablets tonight at the “big event” everyone’s been talking about.

Both tablets feature a 10.6-inch ClearType HD display. They’re designed with what Microsoft is calling VaporMg, a “combination of material selection and process to mold metal and deposit particles that creates a finish akin to a luxury watch.” They also have built-in kickstands and a Touch Cover that folds out to expose a keyboard. In this form factor, the tablets essentially...

As you know the TouchPad didn’t exactly sell as planned, mostly due to what many viewed as an unjustifiably high price tag on an OS that just didn’t catch fire. It did however skyrocket into fame once firesales began to burn through inventory and it was found that Android could be installed on the tablet.
