HP TouchPad

July 12th, 2011 · No Comments · Hardware, News, Reviews, Software

James Kendrick of ZDNet.com posted this very interesting story yesterday:  HP: This TouchPad owner just got very nervous. Thanks. He saw enough promise in the webOS platform–as I did with my purchase of a PalmPre phone.  Then, he discovered yesterday that Jon Rubenstein (head of the webOS unit) had been replaced at HP.  This is truly disheartening news for those who put a great deal of money on the table for this tablet.  As the purchaser of a webOS Palm Pre, I feel their pain.  While my phone is a great device, lack of support from the mother ship for their App Catalog made my purchase less than useful.  I hope the same fate doesn’t come to those new TouchPad purchasers.
