You hear that Samsung? HP's number two. For now at least. The PC maker, which snuffed out its line of webOS devices not all that long ago, managed to grab the number two spot in the tablet race between January and October, according to analyst group, NPD. The news comes thanks in part, no doubt, to

We're unlikely to ever get our grubby mitts on a final model, but that hasn't stopped a developmental flavor of this seven-inch slab getting another going over in China. Unceremoniously revealed as the TouchPad Go in FCC filings earlier this year, this seven-inch tablet packs in 32GB of Sandisk

The future of webOS may still be up in the air, but it looks like HP is at least still making a small effort to woo developers and keep its current ones in the fold. It's now giving registered devs in the US, Canada and Europe a chance to get a 32GB HP TouchPad for the blowout price of $150 (or &e
