UK:HP in talks with all UK operators to range its new webOS devices.

WorldWideTech & Science. Francisco De Jesús.

Hewlett Packard is in talks with all UK operators to range its webOS-powered Veer and Pre 3 smartphones and its TouchPad tablet.

The computing giant said all the operators are showing keen interest in the three products, which are due to be launched this summer.

The devices are the first to come out of HP since it took over handset manufacturer and webOS developer Palm nine months ago.

Speaking to Mobile, Manuel Linnig, HP’s communications manager, said: ‘The feedback from all the operators has been very positive. They are showing a lot of interest and we are also talking to all the major retailers.’

Linnig said the webOS platform is a strong selling point: ‘We offer an alternative to what exists. If you are a consumer, you have hundreds of Android phones that look the same, how do you differentiate? We stand out.’

Linnig said HP is also confident its connectivity strategy will drive sales, pointing to HP’s Touch and Share application, wh…

HP APC 2011: HP webOS TouchPad seeks to exploit iPad Achilles' heel

WorldWideTech & Science. Francisco De Jesús.

LAS VEGAS -- Hewlett-Packard Co. and its partners said the HP TouchPad can win over iPad business users who have had their fill of iTunes “tyranny.”

Many business users in love with their Apple iPads have forced their corporate IT to accept the consumer devices, but even those same users say iPad’s reliance on iTunes has its drawbacks.

ITunes serves as the sole on-ramp (and bottleneck) for iPad apps. Any kind of application that runs on the iPad must travel from iTunes, across Apple Inc.’s proprietary white cord into the device.

HP is banking that its partners –which it is encouraging to develop mobile practices around WebOS—can convince those customers to cut that white cord and go with the upcoming HP TouchPad.

HP: Businesses need to cut Apple’s white cord
Several attendees of this week’s HP Americas Partners Conference think they can do just that. “I think there’s a real market for a  business-oriented  touch device that will work with des…
