    Great news. I had no experience with webOS prior to purchasing my TP, and now that I have it, I love it. It's really a great OS and I'm happy to see HP's commitment to further support.

    HP: TouchPad will receive OTA update for added 'functionality' -- Engadget


    HP may have abandoned the TouchPad, but that apparently won't stop the company from issuing a post-mortem OTA update for its webOS tablet. Yesterday, an HP spokesperson confirmed to CNET that "HP TouchPad owners can look forward to an over-the-air update that will enhance the platform and add functionality and a growing applications catalog." The rep didn't offer any specifics, but reaffirmed that HP remains "fully committed to the ongoing support and service of customers who purchased webOS devices." The news comes on the heels of a Quickoffice HD update that dropped yesterday, and at a time when TouchPads are selling like hotcakes -- which probably explains HP's decision to issue a tweak. Indeed, the company went on to say that it's seen "huge spikes in activations and between 3-5X downloads of apps," since the TouchPad fire sale first launched.

    - "HP TouchPad owners can look forward to an over-the-air update that will enhance the platform and add functionality and a growing applications catalog."

    Translation? : Leo told me to say this, but really, dont count on anything from us...

    The rep didn't offer any specifics, but reaffirmed that HP remains
    - "fully committed to the ongoing support and service of customers who purchased webOS devices."

    Translation? : We like to give you guys hope so that we can crush spirits later on.

    To me HP is like that girlfriend who is sorta, maybe, trying to win back your trust after stabbing you in the back and leaving you for more money: I'll take whatever they say with a grain of salt

    The same reason the Blackberry PlayBook is doing it. No one is making apps for the PlayBook and most webOS developers will/are jumping ship for another platform.
