After HP decided to discontinue WebOS and its TouchPad production, it also announced that it would spin off its PC business. But now in a latest move HP has announced that it has decided to keep its PC business running:
The CyanogenMod 7 team has announced taken another step forward and announced an experimental ACME Installer which will help users dual boot Android/WebOS on their HP TouchPads.
Meg Whitman whose name has been known to us as CEO eBay replaced Leo Apotheker as CEO HP. Apotheker’s 11-month tenure as CEO did not enjoy a smooth sailing with the culmination point being the decision to spin off HP’s PC business and discontinuation of WebOS.
After HP decided to discontinue WebOS and HP TouchPad manufacturing, the price of TouchPad fell to $99 only. This resulted in rapid firesales where people just could not seem to get enough of the TouchPads.
Both CyanogenMod team and the TouchDroid team working on a solution to boot HP TouchPad on both WebOS as well as Android 2.3.x. Now TouchDroid has posted a complete step-wise guide on how to install Gingerbread on the Hp TouchPad.
HP has updated its ultraportable DM1 with a fresher look, some software-add ons and specs enhancements. It will be the first laptop that comes with HP Soft-touch Imprint technology.
Over a week ago HP announced discontinuation of WebOS and the tablet that runs the WeOS i.e. HP TouchPad. The TouchPad though launched with much fanfare could not capture the market as expected and its sales remained quite dismal.
HP’s announcement to discontinue WebOS as well HP TouchPad which runs WebOS was followed by slashing of TouchPad price down to $99. This led to TouchPad firesales with user demand more than the TouchPad stock could meet.
After HP announced discontinuation of its operations for WebOS, the fear of no support for the HP TouchPad tablets led to a sudden fall in its price at $99 only which was actually dirt cheap. This started a rather frenzied spell of HP TouchPad firesales.
HP TouchPad saw its sales rising after its prices was drastically reduced. A lot of users rushed to grab the opportunity of getting this 9.7” tablet at very concessionary prices. The tablet, which runs WebOS has a bit of a problem it does not run MTS video files.
The HP TouchPad running on WebOS does not provide support to certain video formats. One such format is Windows Media Video (WMV) files. So you will first have to convert WMV to HP TouchPad H.264/MPEG 4.
There is one big problem that movie lovers are having with HP TouchPad that is does not have support for HD DVD movies playback. But don’t fret! We have found a solution for you guys.
