The tablet market has, up until recently, been pretty one dimensional, but now it's emerging into a battle fought on several different fronts. The original iPad first arrived in 2010, and having tried to emulate its success by essentially emulating its design, competitors have taken revised approaches. As well as the smaller tablet (see Google-ASUS Nexus 7), there's now a Microsoft-lead push for so-called hybrid devices - tablets which can also double up as notebooks and ultrabooks with attachable keyboards.
Apple has made great strides over the last few years, with the iPhone setting the company on its way to what is fast becoming world domination. It's only a matter of time before the company seeks to colonies the moon and start construction of its Death Ray.
We’re getting closer and closer to a stable port of Android to the HP TouchPad, folks! A video uploaded today shows that the developers behind the TouchDroid project have managed to achieve another one of their objectives: the ability to dual-boot webOS and Android 2.3.x “Gingerbread”.
The last couple of weeks have been of sweeping change for HP, especially its webOS division, as the company announced it would kill of every single webOS hardware product until the end of the year. Soon after, HP's webOS tablet, the TouchPad, began selling for $99, instead of the usual $399, in order to liquidate all remaining stock, yet the response from customers was so overwhelming that HP will actually begin making a last batch of TouchPads.
How do you know when a product is about to fail? Its sales are sluggish, the press is reluctant to cover it and the product's price is magically slashed. For any fans of HP's webOS devices, too bad, those three things have just happened and HP has officially announced it plans to discontinue its line of webOS devices.
It's finally here. Apple today announced the much-anticipated 2nd-generation iPad. With Google's Android, RIM’s BlackBerry powered PlayBook, and HP's webOS getting fancy new tablets either recently or in the future, buyers are going to be spoilt for choice when it comes to selecting a new slate device.
According to the sources at TechCrunch, HP has dropped Windows 7 + Intel based hardware for its ambitious tablet project because “It’s too power hungry”.

HP today has announced TouchSmart tm2, the much awaited follow up to TX2 in their convertible tablet PC lineup.
