BestBuy Sells HP TouchPad in US Again

Written on August 22, 2011 by Lulu

Comments Off

BestBuy started selling their remaining TouchPad stocks last Sunday.

In the wake of HP’s decision to shutter its webOS division, ending all hardware development and production, BestBuy has reconsidered its position in selling the TouchPad. Instead of returning unsold ToucPads to HP, BestBuy decided to sell all the remaining units in their hands.

While not all stores have stock, those that do only have them in limited numbers. It is also expected that it will quickly sell out of any remaining stocks on hand. BestBuy stores which have units of the said device in stock will be selling the 16GB Wi-Fi only model for $100, while the 32GB Wi-Fi model will be sold for $150. The stocks of the said device are limited to one unit per customer, while all the sales will be final with no exchange or refunds offered for any reason.

The expected rush for the remaining units represents an interesting scenario for HP. Questions are likely to be asked as to whether it exited the market too soon – given the renewed interest in the product – regardless of support for it being severed beyond its 12 month warranty.

Apple: A Still Growing PC Maker in Western Europe

Written on August 18, 2011 by Lulu

Comments Off

Gartner stated that Apple is the only PC manufacturer based on Western Europe which continuously grows.

During a continent wide breakdown on Wednesday, Gartner stated that Apple was the only major computer manufacturer – based in Western Europe – that continuously grows. Apple increased its shipment by half a percent, hitting 7% of the market. Meanwhile, other Windows-based PC makers such as HP, Delli, and Acer dropped in the same period of time.

The said pattern was the same from one country to another. Apple gained share in the UK and had a boost in France where its raw shipments increased up to 6.4 points to reach 5.8% — enough to put it in the top five for the first time. Samsung was one of the few others to see an upside in any area, but it was only registered in the top five in France.

Written on July 13, 2011 by Japhet Writ

Comments Off

With HP rumored to release at least two Ultrabook models, the race for the best ultra-portable laptop is about to start.

The battle between ultra-portable laptops is firing up, as HP is anticipated to be the first to launch laptops based on Intel’s new Ultrabook category: Slim, affordable laptops, which can serve as Windows users’ alternative for Apple’s MacBook Air. DigiTimes also reported that HP is set to release at least two Ultrabook models ahead of ASUS UX21.

Sources also informed DigiTimes that HP Ultrabooks will use Intel’s Core i7-2677M and i7-2637M dual-core CPUs. However, the chip maker’s guidelines for Ultrabooks indicate that the HP models will be 0.8-inches thick, with long battery-life, and should cost less than $1,000.

With Apple expected to unleash a refresh of its MacBook Air in the coming days, the timing of this news makes it very interesting. The race for the best ultra-portable laptop is about to begin.

Comments Off

Whether it will happen soon or not, HP is in search for companies that re willing to adopt their WebOS.

According to a Bloomberg report, HP CEO – Leo Apotheker – stated that the company is in negotiation with a number of companies who are interested to license its WebOS mobile software. Leo Apotheker said in an interview in Beijing last Monday:

“We are talking to a number of companies. I can share with you that a number of companies have expressed interest. We are continuing our conversations.”

However, the HP CEO declined to elaborate on the detail. He also refused to give a definite time frame on when the partnership would take place. Moreover, he avoided commenting on the rumors that Samsung is one of the interested parties to adopt the HP WebOS. As of the moment, the Korean conglomerate is using Google’s Android OS in its line of Galaxy smartphones and tablets.

HP launches 3G mobile broadband service

Written on May 09, 2011 by R. Depp

Comments Off

Hewlett-Packard (HP) announced on Monday it will start offering pay-as-you-go 3G mobile broadband services for its business laptops as the company looks to package more services with PCs.

Similar to a prepaid cell phone, the service, called DataPass is a mobile broadband service for the new 3G-enabled HP business laptops, which were also launched the same day.

What’s different about HP’s DataPass is that it provides HP’s new line of business laptops access to 3G data networks in the U.S without requiring users to sign a monthly or yearly contract with a wireless carrier. A software in the laptop shows availability of a DataPass network at the user’s location.

The DataPass service can be purchased easily in blocks through the laptop, and users will not be required to pay any activation fee, according to HP spokesman Mike Hockey. With plans starting from as low as US$5, the service is perfect for instant access to the Internet for different durations at places like hotels and airports, where Internet access could most of the time be pricey.

The plans start at $5 for 75MB for a seven-hour period, $10 for 150MB of data over 3 days, $20 for 450MB of data over 14 days, or $30 for 1GB of data for over a month.

Twitter Trending Topics: How Are These Generated?

Written on February 15, 2011 by Japhet Writ

1 person

Ever wonder how Twitter comes up with their Trending Topics? HP's Social Computing Research Group has the answer.

After analyzing 16.32 million tweets on 3,361 different trending topics from September to October last year, the HP Social Computing Research Group has released the results of their study.

Based on the research, Twitter’s algorithm for trending topics cares more on the specific subject and reach of a tweet, rather than who tweets it and how often it’s tweeted. HP discovered that around 31% of trending topics are retweets, and 72% of those came from mainstream media like CNN, NY Times, The Telegraph, ESPN, Breaking News, and Huffington Post. Simply put, contents that made Twitter trends was largely news from traditional media sources, and was then amplified by retweets.

Check out the embedded report from HP’s Social Computing Research Group after the break for more details.

HP First Wave of WebOS Tablets Coming March

Written on January 19, 2011 by Chris Martin

Comments Off

HP's very first webOS tablet is slated to come out this March. And all we can say is "It's about time!"

Looks like HP is finally going to unleash their own version of a webOS tablet. According to reports, Hewlett-Packard (HP) will be shipping millions of notebooks come March of 2011, and this particular shipment includes webOS tablets which are rumored to be the Topaz. HP has ordered Taiwan-based Inventec to start production and shipments in March despite having finished development last 2010, so it seems something is stalling the company from producing the tablet at an earlier time.

It was last August when HP promised that their first webOS tablet will come around early 2011. Looks like HP is about to fulfill that promise. But how will the HP tablet fare against established giants like Apple’s iPad and Samsung’s Galaxy Tab?

HP adds EliteBook 2540p and 2740p to the lineup, brings the power and the touch

Written on March 01, 2010 by AllWeLike

Comments Off

Thought HP was done unleashing its new line of semi-rugged EliteBooks at CES? So did we, but apparently it needed just a little bit more time to pull the 12.1-inch 2540p and 2740p out of the oven. An update to the 2530p, the 3.8-pound 2540p still has the same magnesium alloy chassis that’s met all those super-tough MIL-STD 810G military standard tests, but its innards have been freshened up with the alluring scent of Intel’s 2010 Core processors. Prices start at $1,099, but in typical HP fashion it will be configurable online with tons of juicy options, including standard and low voltage Core i5 and i7 processors and a range of 7,200RPM and SSD drives.
