Hewlett Packard Co. this week released a new update to the webOS software for the HP TouchPad.
The webOS 3.04 update includes snappier performance, a new camera app to take pictures and record video, and faster app store loading.
Both include a 1.2Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon Dual-Core CPU, 1GB RAM, and the webOS operating system in a 1.6 lb. device.
Despite powerful specs, the TouchPad held tepid demand at launch with 25,000 units sold.
However, clearance of the product in Aug. led the TouchPad to become an in-demand item nationwide.
HP in Aug. said it will manufacture a limited quantity of TouchPad tablets in the fiscal fourth quarter of 2011, which ends Oct. 31, to meet demand.
