On May 15, AT&T will be getting the HP Veer 4G smartphone. This smartphone runs on webOS 2.1 and comes in black and white. With a footprint that is about the size of a credit card and a thickness that's roughly equivalent to a deck of cards, the HP Veer 4G is the smallest full-featured HP webOS smartphone to date. The Veer features a Qualcomm... Read more...
ePrint may not be as excited as, say, webOS 3.0, but it's still a blossoming service that has the potential to reshape how we think about printing. Printing is one of those functions that has been around forever, and has changed very little over the years. With ePrint, HP has evolved the function in a major way, and now they're connecting...

Don't count WebOS out just yet. The mobile operating system started by Palm, and now being handled by HP, has struggled to reach critical mass in recent years, mostly due to inadequate Palm hardware and a rough ride as it has changed families mid-course. But in a recent press event, HP revealed three new WebOS devices, indicating that they... Read more...
Leo Apotheker has a tall order ahead of him. HP as a whole as doing quite well, make no mistake. The company is selling a ton of PCs to consumers and businesses alike, but ever since the company acquired Palm, mobile pundits have been watching to see what the future would hold for such an iconic brand. At HP's latest press event, they basically... Read more...
The most recent news surrounding HP has to do with their new WebOS devices: the Veer, Pre 3 and the TouchPad tablet. But HP is a PC company at heart, and that's shining through this week with the release of the TouchSmart Elite 9300. It's an all-in-one desktop that's expected to be available in the U.S. this May, with a 23" touch display second-generation... Read more...
Look out Apple, slide aside Samsung, and move over Motorola because the gauntlet has been thrown, and boy has it ever. Making the most out of a press event in San Francisco, Hewlett-Packard formally (and finally) rolled out its long awaited webOS tablet, the HP TouchPad. HP's challenger enters the ring measuring 13.7... Read more...
One of the negative points of Palm's Pre and Pre 2 was the relatively small screen size and low resolution. HP fixed that when they introduced the Pre 3 today, but if you're one of those who just love small phones, the Veer keeps the tiny tradition in tact. The HP Veer is the smallest HP webOS phone offered, and you could argue that it's a... Read more...
Palm just had their biggest day in years, and they're not even Palm any longer. When HP purchased Palm, many feared that it meant the end for the Palm brand. The URL stuck around, and rumors were swirling all along that maybe it actually would hang on in some form or another. But now, it's pretty clear that the Palm... Read more...
For the better part of the second half of 2010 there's been plenty of hype surrounding the emerging tablet market, but few actual product releases. As 2011 slowly gets underway, things are starting to look different already. CES was bustling with working tablets, Android 3.0 is just around the corner, HP is expected to launch its webOS-based...

Someone over at Hewlett-Packard is apparently ultra-excited about the company's upcoming Topaz tablet -- the first slate to be built around HP's semi-newly acquired webOS platform -- and has leaked a ton of info and pictures to Pre|Central. Topaz, as you already know, is the name HP is giving its first webOS-based slate, and while some of... Read more...

In looking at the photos, the upcoming 9-inch tablet, code-named... Read more...
We were already expecting that HP is going to release new tablet PCs and smartphones carrying the Palm's webOS platform, and now we have confirmation that it will also produce webOS netbooks, as well. The information comes via an HP carrier training website. The training video on the site, which anyone can sign up for despite its focus on... Read more...
WebOS 2.0 is being viewed by many as a major overhaul of Palm's mobile operating system, but Palm has not shown it very much to the public. But with the Pre 2 now official and on sale in France, there's no real use in keeping things undercover now. Palm, or HP really, has just revealed the first public ad for WebOS 2.0 and the Pre 2. The minute-long... Read more...
Well, what do you know? It's the executive shuffle in the mobile world! It sure looks like fun, and according to All Things D, the same man that designed last month as the head of Nokia's MeeGo division is now an employee of Palm. It seems like a round-robin of high-level executives, but we aren't too surprised. Ari Jaaksi has a track record... Read more...
Apple has won a patent for the coveted pinch-to-zoom feature. The patent application was filed in December of 2006 (patent #7,812,826). However, the patent issued does not give Apple complete control over the pinch-to-zoom functionality, which now exists on just about every current-generation platform. Here's the section of the patent that... Read more...
Phew. That's a big sigh of relief coming from everyone who thought even for a second that HP's purchase of Palm may end up being the last of WebOS. Palm was only able to launch a couple of phones based on WebOS before being acquired by a much larger HP, and the future of the mobile OS has been up in the air ever since. We have heard that WebOS... Read more...
During a fireside chat at the TechCrunch Disrupt conference this week, Hewlett-Packard's (HP's) Todd Bradley, who some consider the front-runner to replace Mark Hurd as CEO, said HP has no intentions of licensing out Palm's webOS platform. Just don't take that to mean HP has any intention of following in Apple's footsteps. Straight and to... Read more...
When HP acquired Palm earlier this year, the webOS community feared the end was in sight. Within days of the acquisition, however, HP put any fears to rest by confirming that it had no plans to abandon webOS or Palm's smartphone business. Instead, HP said that it planned to put webOS in a bunch of other devices such as printers and tablets.... Read more...
And with that, the mystery is solved. Well, at least we think the mystery is solved. This story goes a long way back, all the way to CES 2010. At that show, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer came out onto a stage with an HP-branded tablet PC, which was simply called the "HP Slate" at the time. But then, no one saw or heard... Read more...
The HP-Palm deal, which found HP acquiring Palm earlier this year, will likely go down as one of the most monumental in tech history. Palm used to be a giant, and HP has never been a serious mobile player. Many say the two have little in common, and many wondered why some other company didn't shell out the needed funds to pick up such a intelligence-rich... Read more...
Everyone and their uncle has promised to release an Android-based tablet by the end of 2010, and at this point, it's probably easier to take a head count of which companies aren't planning to release one. We can start with Hewlett-Packard, who according to reports will no longer be pushing out an Android slate anytime this year. Everything... Read more...
All the "I"s are dotted and the "T"s are crossed in Hewlett Packard's $1.2 billion acquisition of Palm, which was finalized on Thursday, HP announced. That means HP can officially begin putting into motion whatever plans it has for Palm's technology, and most notably the newly acquired webOS platform. "With webOS, HP will deliver its customers...
