While streaming Vimeo videos often the video will pause to buffer, but not start again till I pause it and click play again, it will happen several times throughout the video. Nothing wrong with my internet speeds and YouTube videos play fine. Someone suggested switching to html5 version of their player, but then no Vimeo videos work.
Ok, I'm an iPad/iOS guy, but we have 2 of the HP Touchpads. I think it's fine, but doesn't do much thanks to the limited app market. I finally got around to installing Android 2.3.1 and its much more useful now. Sure I'm not a fan of android, especially this 'non-tablet' version, but its pros outweigh the cons thanks to the extended app market.
Yay for Netflix on a $149 tablet :)
Can't get Cafe world to load and words with friends....says browser is out of date?
TouchPad has USB port. By design it was not intended to connect anything to it. But what about PreWare, maybe it is possible to reconfigure it to be used as expansion port to connect peripherals? Something like USB keyboards would be neat trick ;)
I signed up for a developer account and I sent HP an e-mail for a coupon. It's been a couple of days and I still haven't heard from them. Is there anyone who received a coupon?
p.s. Wow, look at that: "We currently have more requests for coupons than we have devices and will not be accepting any further requests."
I have an iPad for comparison and the gdgt.com website looks much better on the iPad than the touchpad particularly in portrait orientation. Same goes for many other websites some of which are almost unreadable when viewed in portrait on the touchpad. Is there a way to change the web browser user agent to make a website render the iPad version on the Touchpad? Or is it just inferior zooming and/or font rendering on the touchpad web browser compared to iOS safari?
I've read a few rumors that make it seem fairly possible. A few even suggest that HP might be testing the OS on the Touchpad already with plans to revive the hardware as their 1st Win 8 tablet...
Now that WebOS is dead, and the product is discontinued, I really don't know what to do with this bulky thing. It's an OK e-reader, but its just to bulky to take with me. Its got flash so its great for web browsing... when my Govnah kernel doesn't crash limiting my processor speeds. So what should/can I do with? I certainly don't just want the thing collecting dust in my closet, even if I did get it during a fire sale...
I did the hard reset by pushing the three buttons for 15 seconds as instructed. My Pad went off and i can not get it to power back up now. It is as if there is no battery. I left it on charge all night and tried it this morning and it is still the same....blank screen, no power.
I would just like to get the opinion of HP TouchPad Owners who went out and purchased a Touchpad during the firesale for $100-$150. Do you wish you would have waited for the Amazon Kindle Fire to be released? I just find it an intresting point to bring up. Yes the screen is smaller, but it has access to the Amazon cloud and a huge Android App store provided by Amazon. On another note if Amazon releases a Kindle Fire 10" for possibly around $299 would you have wished you held out for that? Just...
They suddenly stopped showing the images I transferred to the Touchpad, but it shows them internally.
I love the clarity and the super accurate color representation on my touchpad! It is great to surf news sites like The Big Picture and other image hosting and video websites, but it will be great to read my favorite magazines on it, like The Rolling Stone or National Geographic. Any recommendations?
