TouchPad | HP
Open webOS' July update contains the disappointing news that prior hardware like the Palm Pre, Pixi, and Veer will not be supported by the open source operating system.
The CyanogenMod team is releasing the first wave of release candidates for CyanogenMod 9 — its Android 4.0 release. Downloads are available for 37 devices.
After accidentally selling TouchPads with an internal build of Android, and subsequent complaints about GPL violations, HP has released its unpublished Android test kernel to the CyanogenMod team as a gesture of goodwill.
Woot.com has refurbished TouchPads in stock, and it's selling the 16GB variety for $169.99, and the 32GB variety for $219.99, with a 90-day HP warranty.
Enyo cross-platform apps have just been released and we take a look at FlashCards on an ipad and PaperMache on the Android 4.0 Transformer Prime.
If you missed out on the original HP TouchPad firesale but still want to get in on the webOS action after HP announced that it would be releasing the operating system to the open source community, here's your chance. As originally leaked by TechCrunch, the company is putting refurbished units for sale on its eBay store. The 16GB unit costs $99 while the 32GB version runs $149. HP is also offering a $79 accessory bundle which includes a case, charging dock, and Bluetooth keyboard.
HP's statement announcing the open-sourcing of webOS skirted the issue of whether the company will produce future hardware for the platform, but the answer's emerged in its accompanying FAQ.
Despite HP claiming it was out of TouchPads, they've found a limited batch of refurbished 16GB and 32GB models that'll be on sale for $99 and $149, respectively. The sale starts at 7PM ET on Sunday evening on HP's eBay store.
A $199 BlackBerry PlayBook can indeed be yours this holiday season. Research in Motion made it official today via Twitter, although it didn't provide any more details beyond "select US and Canadian retailers."
HP's brought back its developer device program, which gives the opportunity to purchase up to two 32GB TouchPads for $149.99 each, as long as you send in a request for this discount coupon by November 18th.
