HP has been bashed around for launching the TouchPad with so many things that need fixing. Yesterday's announcement that Jon Rubinstein was being moved to the Personal Systems Group out of the Palm group was a surprise coming so soon after the launch of the company's first webOS tablet. Things may seem to be in disarray at HP these days, but TouchPad owners should at least be getting an update to address performance problems with the tablet soon.
Buried in an article on boston.com is this little nugget:
[Todd] Bradley said in an interview that July 1 was a “soft launch’’ for the TouchPad and that more advertising will start on July 17. The company also plans to issue a software update for the tablet in about 10 days, he said.
This would put the first OTA update for the TouchPad around the end of the month, which is good news and fast for the giant HP.
