HP TouchPad to Receive OTA Update, Could webOS Live On?

HP has told CNet that they will be issuing a software update for the TouchPad to “enhance the platform”. HP recently purged their inventory of tablets by slashing the price from $499 to just $99, and announced that they would be discontinuing all webOS related products. It was unknown if the company would continue to support webOS software, but today’s message suggests that they do have plans to support the platform.

If you managed to snag a TouchPad while they were unbelievably cheap, check out HP’s free 6-pack app offering, which currently includes Angry Birds, Quell, Big Boss, and more.

We expect that HP TouchPad owners can look forward to an over-the-air update that will enhance the platform and add functionality and a growing applications catalog. HP is fully committed to the ongoing support and service of customers who purchased webOS devices…We plan to continue to investigate the best ways to leverage WebOS software and grow the applications.
