Reports suggest HP's defunct webOS ran twice as fast on an iPad 2 as it did on the TouchPad. But is hardware why the TouchPad failed?
The Veer is akin to a scaled-down version of the Pre, packing a similar slide-down keyboard form factor, HSPA+, 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1 with EDR, 8GB of storage, and an 800MHz Snapdragon processor.
Mac users who own the Palm Pre and similar devices were disappointed to lose their ability to sync with the latest version of iTunes. This has been restored with the release of Palm WebOS 1.1.
Still, it's an Exchange 2007 reset, along with a few bug fixes, that's the main component of 1.2.1, making its way to handsets over the weekend.
