(I post the following article for participating in "Lenovo Better Way IndiBlogger Contest")
I am at present using Hp touchpad which was given to me by my son which in turn was presented to him by a friend in USA who purchased it when it was launched in 2011.
The following are the configuration of the HP touchpad::
- Storage capacity: :64 GB
- Version HP webOS 3.0.5
- Memory:1 GB, Mobile DDR2 SDRAM
- Display:9.7 inch, 1024×768 pixel, Gorilla Glass multitouch capacitive touch screen. Interaction by finger .
The following applications are available preloaded in the touchpad::
Web,Email,Messaging,HP App catalog,Memos,Qucik Office,Adobe Readers,Maps,Contacts,Music,Phone & Video Calls,Photos & Videos,Face book,Youtube and Book reader
My disappointments/misadventures with HP touch pad:
Initially I was thrilled to have this HP touchpad since it was the first touchpad used by me. I could download some of the free applications from HP Application catalog. .I could install many photos,videos and songs in the touchpad using the USB cable.But slowly I got irritated with the tocuhpad due to many reasons as given below:
Card based multitasking : The TouchPad uses card multitasking which is not a user friendly function. When using an application,if you have to open another application we have to minimize the application by pressing the home button and open another application and I find it irritating to operate like this every time.
No Support and updates for WebOS: The HP TouchPad was launched on July 1, 2011, in USA with WebOS but in Aug 2011 Hewlett-Packard announced that it would discontinue all current hardware devices running webOS.
Since HP has discontinued the support for the Touchpad, there is no updates for the WebOS platform. The last updated version was 3.0.5 as of January 12, 2012.
Lack of New applications: I am increasingly frustrated with the lack of applications and HP’s abandoning of the platform. Apart from the applications already provided in the Application catalog, we cannot down load any new application as in the case of Android market where the number of new applications is growing day by day and most of which are free also.
No support for taking photos: Since there is no front camera we cannot take photos with the touch pad.
