HP TouchPad gets webOS 3.0.4 Update OTA

Some developers at HP are still working on webOS.

HP has released a new update for webOS. The webOS 3.0.4 update is now available over the air. You can update your $99 HP TouchPad, if you got one via Wi-Fi. There are just small improvements in the webOS 3.0.4 release. See the list below. HP has been very silent about releasing new $99 HP TouchPad to the public on the HP Store. The employee-only $99 TouchPad sale was already 3 weeks ago.

Consumers still waiting for the $99 TouchPad are getting pretty frustrated or are giving up waiting. See tweets on the hashtag #foundTP. Why HP is not updating the waiting crowd on the status of the HP TouchPad sale is beyond me. If there are no more TouchPads coming than say it. If there will be another $99 TouchPad sale then it is time to tweet that.

webOS 3.0.4 improvements:

  • A new Camera app for photos and video
  • The ability to pair non-webOS phones to your TouchPad, so you can answer calls on your TouchPad. Pairing with non-webOS Bluetooth keyboards has also been streamlined.
  • Support for OGG Vorbis music files
  • Online/offline messaging status support.
