“It’s in the pipeline … starting to roll out this morning,” wrote Richard Kerris, vice president, worldwide developer relations for webOS at HP,
in a Twitter message Monday morning.
HP declined to offer further details, saying information on the software update and specific features would be provided at a later time.
“We’re focused on ensuring an excellent experience on TouchPad, and we’re addressing as much of the early performance feedback as possible to deliver the experience customers expect. While we haven’t given a specific time of when the OTA will occur, customers can expect it shortly,” said Sara Coughlin, an HP spokeswoman, in an email.
Users have criticized the tablet’s performance and weight when compared to Apple’s iPad or Samsung’s Galaxy Tab, but the TouchPad has found buyers in early adopters and those who have Palm smartphones, which also use webOS.
