Comments on: TouchPad 3.0.2 Update Initial Impressions

Coinciding with the start of August, HP has now delivered on the eagerly-awaited WebOS 3.0.2 build 68 update for the TouchPad. A full change log is available from HP here. Read on for my initial impressions of the update and how it would have impacted my TouchPad review score had it arrived prior to August 1st.

I fired up the TouchPad and did not receive an automatic notification that the update was available. I was, however, able to pull it using the "System Updates" icon in the Settings menu. The update was 38 megabytes in size and downloaded rather slowly over my 24 Mbit/s U-Verse connection. The entire process of downloading, unpacking, installing, verifying, and rebooting the TouchPad took approximately 36 minutes, a good bit longer than I am accustomed to with Android OTA updates.

Better late than never. If they will bring these about every month till Christmas, keep pressing for the best apps on platform, keep advertising like crazy, and bring more smartfone synergies, then they may carve out a healthy niche.

It's $299 at staples this weekend.

Sales must really be in the toilet for a price drop this soon.
