Reference Entry
A webOS-based tablet computer from HP. Introduced in July 2011, TouchPad features were a 9.7" 1024x768 screen, Webcam, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, cellular GPS (A-GPS) and a display stand that served as a wireless charger. Seven weeks after introduction, the TouchPad was discontinued, and after the price was dramatically reduced, all remaining units flew off the shelves to be retrofitted into Android tablets (see Android ROM). TouchPad apps were downloaded from the Palm App Catalog online app store, which was later removed. See webOS and Palm.
