Palo Alto, Calif. -
Hewlett-Packard has made a $100 price cut on its TouchPad tablets permanent.
The decision to drop the
price was made after a $100-off instant-savings promotion run last weekend
proved so successful, the company said.
The TouchPad 16GB Wi-Fi
model now carries a $399 price, while the 32GB version is $499.
HP also has pushed out the first major update for WebOS 3.0 last
The update helped improve:
email, with faster scrolling and image rendering;
photos, with easier and faster to set wallpaper, handle photos
audio/video, with reduced audio skipping when the tablet is
doing other operations;
autocorrect, with shorter response time and better accuracy; and
rotation, with sensitivity decreased to prevent over-rotation.
