    Latest Tech News - HP update to boost TouchPad 'functionality'

    Hewlett-Packard told CNET on Monday that it will deliver future updates to boost the TouchPad's functionality. HP also said it has seen "huge spikes" in TouchPad activation in the wake of the decision to discount the tablet.

    On August 19, HP slashed the price of the 16GB TouchPad to $100, setting off a buying frenzy at stores like Best Buy and online. HP's action came after announcing the shuttering its WebOS device business. The TouchPad uses the WebOS operating system.

    "We expect 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," an HP spokesperson told CNET today in response to an e-mail query. HP would not elaborate on what those enhancements would be.

    HP also said that it is seeing "huge spikes in activations and between 3-5X downloads of apps" as a result of the fire sale launched on August 19.

    "HP is fully committed to the ongoing support and service of customers who purchased webOS devices...We plan to continue to investigate the best ways to leverage WebOS software and grow the applications," the spokesperson said.

    And HP continues to offer free apps. Today, it announced another "six pack" of free apps, including Angry Birds Rio HD and FlightPredictor HD.
