It seems that WebOS can be ran on iPad 2 now. According to CultofMac.com’s “Angry Engineers Hacked The iPad 2 To Run webOS To Show How Much HP’s Hardware” article, someone has hacked iPad 2 to run WebOS. The funny thing is that WebOS runs faster on iPad 2 than the original tablet devices that HP had developed for WebOS. So, HP bought WebOS from Palm, I think, and then HP could not work with WebOS effectively since the company failed to create good enough hardware for WebOS to run with.
According to Gizmodo, HP probably will roll out its TouchPad, a rival tablet to Apple’s iPad 2, on July 1st. 16 GB TouchPad will set you back around $500, and 32 GB TouchPad will set you back around $600. From the preview of TouchPad in the video below, I think it’s looking very sleek. It’s a compliment from an iPad 2 user! Still, this late in the game, and if I’m correct TouchPad has no 3G version yet.
Waves of tablets prompt people to suspect that desktops are going the neanderthal way, but here HP has rolled out a new HP Pavilion HPE H8-1090d Desktop PC. This bad boy equips with Intel Core i7-2600 3.4 GHz, 8 GB DDR3, 2 TB SATA (7200 rpm), Blu-ray disc combo player, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 (2 GB dedicated), and HP Wireless Wlan 802.11 b/g/n Mini Card. The operating system is Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. Once again, it’s a disappointment to see this new desktop from HP isn’t yet equipped with something better than USB 2.0. Last I heard, HP is going to use USB 3.0 over Thunderbolt, but that is couple days old news. (I don’t mention the price, because it’s still pretty new and price can be varied from one reseller to another over this PC).
