HP Pushes Out Over-The-Air WebOS Update For TouchPad Owners

Following direct feedback from customers HP has rolled out an over-the-air webOS update for all TouchPads. The update, version 3.0.2, is said to contain hundreds of improvements to the functionality to several core webOS apps as well as increase system performance and stability and addresses a number of bugs.

A few highlights from the hundreds of improvements included in the update:
  • The Email app offers faster scrolling and improved image rendering, as well as improved management of multiple emails in Draft and Outbox views
  • You can now set your wallpaper from photos in the Photos app
  • In the Calendar app, you'll notice improvements in layout, searching for events with Just Type, and more
  • Can't live without "can't"? You'll appreciate enhancements in autocorrection of contractions.
You can find more information about how over-the-air updates work here. More details about the webOS 3.0.2 update can be found here.

The WebOS software comes directly on the heel of the company announcing a $50 install cash back deal. Dropping the price for the TouchPad down to $449 and $549 for the 16 and 32GB version.

As I mentioned in the previous post "hands on the TouchPad" I really like the look and feel of WebOS on a tablet. The operating system is fairly smooth when ran in short sittings. After a few weeks of testing I've noticed several of the bugs other users had mentioned. So hopefully this update will fix some of those.
