    Hi, I was hoping someone might b able to help me.

    I have a 32gb touchpad and when I use it in portrait mode it seems to be constantly trying to flip between portrait and landscape. Very annoying when trying to read the internet.

    My gf also has a tp but doesn't seem to have the same complaints. Is it just me or could it be a side effect of one of the patches I installed? Is there a patch I could install to fix it? Any help would be much appreciated as its one of the few annoyances I have with the device.

    many thanks

    i think you can lock down the screen orientation

    TIP:
    To lock the screen orientation, press the top, right-hand corner, where the clock is & press Turn On Rotation Lock

    Mine stays locked in landscape mode 99% of the time.

    Mine is twitchy too. I have to use the screen lock to use it or else it drives me nuts. My iPad doesn't have that much of a problem.

    having to lock screen is NOT a solution. Currently chatting w HP support

    Are you asking the support tech to fix webOS or for a refund?

    Mine was 'twtchy' at 3.02. After update it is great. My guess is that 3.04 adjusted accelerometer which has proven good for some and not others.

    I noticed mine was much improved after the 3.04 update. Much more stable and usually only flips when I want it to

    I've got 3.0.4, and my Touchpad is still twitchy. It's so bad that I cannot get it to be in right-side-up portrait mode (with camera on top) at all, and can only get it in upside-down portrait with extreme difficulty and careful timing. Without proper portrait mode, this thing isn't much more useful to me than a brick, as it was supposed to be my portable library.

    Seems like either or both of (A) an flaky accelerometer, or (B) poor software drivers. Is there anything I can do to get this fixed, or have I just wasted $200?

    Go into the tests and test your accelerometer, sounds like you have a bad one. I have had my TouchPad for 4 months and have not had the issues you describe on any version of the OS.
    I love physical keyboards... but there is two devices that would make me consider a slab, one is something running a full version of Open webOS. The other is an iPhone!!!! HA HA just kidding (about the iPhone that is)...
