HP TouchPad Review

0. phoneArena 05 Jul 2011, 06:17 posted on

It was only back in February when the world was first introduced to the next level of webOS devices – with one of them being none other than the HP TouchPad. Nearly five months have passed by, and the world is finally getting its taste of the very first webOS 3.0 tablet in the HP TouchPad – but more importantly, some are curious to know how it stands against some of the titans in the market...

am not surprised..webOS "core" programming isnt yet optimized to say the least...you can see that it is quite laggy on the handsets... but webOS UI implementation does a good job masking that issue ie. multi-tasking and notification managements are excellent making the OS seem "flowing" and "easy to use". such implementation can surely be adapted on android, ios, or even wp7... just a pity android or ios didnt think of it the first time around...

Great Multi tasking and Good social Networking Intergration bt little bit laggy when we using normally...this is not as good as Android and Ios..
ios is the leading tablet based os upto nw....bt android giving a great competition to ios...so web os3.0 is not reached as my expectation..Thank u

Can you please tell us exactly what the video bit and frame rate you use to code the 1080p videos ? Just curious what you used and in your experimenting, what the touchpad recognized and what it didn't recognized when attempting to code high resolution video ?

What was the largest file total size of a 1080 movie that you transferred ?

Also, did you have a problem getting the tablet to see the videos once you transferred them and if so, what did you do to fix this ?

no one seems to mention how this HP touchpad saves us monthly money. All tablets require a tablet package raging from $50 and up monthly to connect to your server. BUT not HP.. this pad allows no server package and no activation thru server a but connects remotly to your android or web os cell and you share the connection. free!!! what other tablet does that? now im waiting for the pre 3 so the connection will be even faster
