The 9.7-inch HP TouchPad may be down but not completely out, at least according to

The source found that a new minor software update (WebOS 3.0.5) may be set to arrive for the axed HP tablet. Exactly what the update will bring to the table is unknown, but the source indicates a slight performance boost may be one of the major features. Electronista hypothesizes even further, claiming that Twitter integration with WebOS Synergy could be a possibility as well.

Even though the TouchPad was discontinued in August, it continues to receive a healthy amount of support directly from HP themselves. The manufacturer has been offering free apps to all TouchPad users and has even been rolling out software updates at respectively frequent intervals. In fact, the 3.0.4 OS update was released just a couple of weeks ago and included enhancements to Adobe Flash and the built-in accelerometer.

Precisely when the supposed 3.0.5 update will become live is so far anybody’s guess. HP has yet to comment directly on any updates post 3.0.4.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
