HP is planning to launch its 9.7-inch TouchPad tablet in the U.S. this Friday. Before the launch, new rumors suggest HP may also have another tablet up its sleeves: a 7-inch model. According to the rumors, the 7-inch tablet will be revealed in August.  According to Taiwan Economic News, Inventec will manufacture the tablet. HP has reportedly placed an order for 400,000 to 450,000 Touch Pad tablet PCs per month. Although no specifications have been revealed, many people expect the 7-inch version of the TouchPad to have similar hardware features as its big brother. HP's 9.7-inch TouchPad tablet is scheduled to launch on July 1. It will carry a price tag of $499.99 for the 16GB model and $599.99... Read more...

Your mother may have raised you to always keep your cool, but little did she know that heat-generating laptops would render her instructions hard to follow. That's one of the areas Logitech's new Lapdesk N600 was designed to help out with, providing a barrier between your notebook's toasty underside and those precious parts in and around your lap. Buy why stop there? The Lapdesk N600 has a trick up its sleeve that makes it unique. Hidden inside is a 5-inch retractable touchpad with multi-touch navigation. Sure, your notebook already has a trackpad, but this one's not only big, it's also flexible in that you can scroll using two fingers and swipe through pages or pictures using three. "We've seen...

Guess what? HP's TouchPad seems to be darn good at Flash. Yes, Adobe's Flash. As in, the Flash that no iOS device is capable of handling, despite tons of public backlash. Apple's pretty much set on never supporting Flash, hoping to hold out until most web video is converted over to the more universally accepted HTML5. It's quite possible that HP plans on using this fact (the fact that the TouchPad can play Flash) to set itself apart from Apple's iPad. The TouchStone feature is also an impressive one, but it's one that will be harder to sell to the mainstream. The TouchPad Flash demo was shown at a Qualcomm demo earlier in the week, where the 1.2GHz Snapdragon processor powered through tons of... 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 millimeters thick and weighing 1.6 pounds with a capacitive screen span extending 9.7 inches. It looks strikingly similar to the iPad, but the hardware is a different story. Motoring the HP TouchPad is a dual-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon processor, which we think is worth repeating. Ready? Here we go: Motoring the HP TouchPad is a dual-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon processor. That alone should... Read more...
If you haven't updated the driver for your laptop's touchpad lately, you may want to think about doing so, particularly if your laptop has a Synaptics touchpad. As a user on Hardware Zone forums discovered, there's a new driver from Synaptics that enables multitouch gestures as well as two-finger scrolling and three-finger click. What's really cool is that this driver enables this functionality for older laptops that didn't previously support these functions. Although it was thought that older touchpads were not capable of multi-touch, this driver update appears to prove otherwise. Another pleasant surprise is the unlocking of two- and three-finger gestures since even modded drivers were not... Read more...
