HP Updates webOS Adds Performance And Functionality

HP may have discontinued the TouchPad and the company may eventually kill off webOS but for now at least they are still adding in some updates. The latest update, webOS 3.0.4, is now available as an over-the-air update and features several changes in functionality and performance.

Among the new functionality is a new native camera app that lets users take photos and videos. The ability to pair non-webOS phones to your TouchPad, so you can answer calls on your TouchPad. Streamlined airing with non-webOS Bluetooth keyboards. Support for OGG Vorbis music files and webOS 3.0.4 also includes online/offline messaging status support.

"In addition to new features, you'll also experience better performance, user interface improvements, and other enhancements such as support for accelerometer events in Adobe Flash Player, and more robust Skype video calling," HP's Jon Zilber wrote in a blog post announcing the changes.
