IDC suggests that worldwide tablet sales have skyrocketed over the past 12 months, up 264.5 percent in Q3 2011 as compared to the same period in 2010.  Q3 results, strong as they were, didn't quite match up to the analyst firm's projections... Read...
In almost the same moment that webOS looked like it was effectively being put out to pasture by HP, hope glimmers for the mobile operating system. HP CEP Meg Whitman told TechCrunch in an interview that the company could make webOS-based tablets starting in 2013. This is a somewhat confusing development. We... Read...
A month after new HP CEO Meg Whitman told the world she needed more time to figure out what the company would do with webOS, the decision has been made. HP will open source the mobile operating system. However, HP isn’t simply dumping webOS; the company will continue to back the project with (a certain... Read...
All hail the TouchPad, the second most popular tablet in the universe! Wait, what? Believe it or not (and we wouldn't blame you if you didn't), Hewlett-Packard has sold more tablets so far in 2011 than any other company, save for Apple, according to... Read...
It's the quarter-end for HP, also known as the corporate overlord that just can't make up its mind about anything. On its second CEO this year (and third in not-too-much longer), the company's Q4 2011 earnings are nothing to scoff at. Despite the... Read...
Hewlett-Packard's recently appointed CEO Meg Whitman already made one tough decision since taking over for Leo Apotheker, and that was whether or not to go ahead with plans to dump the company's PC division.

Turns out there's more than just the ways we mentioned earlier this week to get a cheap TouchPad. Yes, the webOS tablet that barely was. It's still hanging around, in one way or another, and there seems to be yet another option for grabbing one. In... Read...
Does HP really need a chief strategy officer? Hopefully not, because there aren't any plans to replace the current one once he leaves next month. HP has gone through an insane amount of turmoil over the past two years, with Mark Hurd getting the... Read...
Remember the HP TouchPad? That was arguably the last webOS consumer product to ever go out, neck-and-neck with the Pre 3 in select markets. HP decided to toss those on a fire sale in order to clear inventory, and now the company's just hoping we all... Read...
It shouldn't come as any surprise, but it's depressing nonetheless. With HP's webOS devices division having no new products to work on, the writing was on the wall. According to AllThingsD, HP will be cutting 500 jobs at the webOS department, now... Read...
Over the course of the past few weeks, since the company’s announcement that it would no longer produce tablets and smartphones based on webOS and that it planned to spin-off its PC business, HP has been the target of a lot of negative... Read...
Well, there are surprises and then there are things you'd expect to happen. This is a tale involving both. PreCentral has managed to get their hands on new internal HP documentation that somewhat describes how things are going to go down now that... Read...
It turns out all you need to do to dethrone Apple's iPad is launch a $500 tablet with modern hardware, discontinue the device, and mark it down to $99 (or $149 for the 32GB version). Hewlett Packard did exactly that and now owns the hottest selling... Read...
The CyanogenMod team claims to have gotten Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) running on the HP TouchPad. As was noted earlier, developers had appeared to be nearing a first port of Android on HP's now dead webOS tablet.
