The HP TouchPad came, did not quite win the game and then went off. However, it has not been as simple as it might suggest as the WebOS tablet had made it to the top of the popularity charts even if that has been for a brief period of time and after having been provided with one of the heaviest discounts ever meted out in Tablet history.
The end result, there are around a million units of the HP tablet in use all over the globe and the tablet continues to grab headlines even months after it having given the burial. Like this time, HP did it a favor by announcing an upgrade to its OS so that its now version webOS 3.0.5. that is making things better with the TouchPad.
The added features that this upgrade would provide are faster e-mail scrolling while the calendar too will turn faster than before. Users will also get an indication when an image has been sent or when some individual is available for IM while saving an e-mail message as draft will also save the attachment if there are any.
Further, the update will enable support for HTTP live streaming while users will also have the option to enable or disable auto-correction with a toggle button. Similarly, tapping the space bar twice will allow users to insert a period while typing. These apart, there are also a number of enhancements brought along to ensure watching video on the TouchPad post the update will be more pleasure inducing than anytime before. These include improved web video stability while users will also be served an alert whenever there are chances of video quality to be low due to network issues. Also, transferring of MP3 from computer using the USB slot is faster once the OS has been upgraded to 3.0.5.
