Enterprise Mobility: 10 webOS Apps to Grab Before the TouchPad Dies
While Hewlett-Packard's entry into the tablet market, the HP TouchPad, proved to be a colossal belly flop when it hit store shelves earlier this year, the company's decision to reduce the price to $99 and announce the tablet's discontinuation turned the device into a surprise overnight bestseller. Best Buy helped fuel the frenzy by slashing the price of the 16GB TouchPad from $399 to $99, and the 32GB version from $499 to $149. That sent customers swarming onto online shopping Websites and brick-and-mortar stores, where they stripped existing stocks of the device. (HP is manufacturing more TouchPads to meet demand.) For those who were quick enough to grab one (or are still on the prowl), HP's online app store offers an impressive selection of applications for the device. While it seems unlikely that application developers are going to spend any more time creating new applications for webOS, eWEEK found 10 applications worth checking out while there's still time.
