    • PreCentral: HP announces new HP Slate 7 tablet; the damn thing runs Android

      We knew it was coming, but it still stings. HP today announced and unveiled at MWC in Barcelona their reentry into the tablet market with the HP Slate 7 tablet. The seven-inch tablet has a 1024x600 screen, a 1.6GHz Cortex A9 processor, 1GB of RAM, and a meager 8GB of onboard storage (though it may be augmented by an included microSD slot). And, in typical HP fashion, it also includes Beats Audio integration and an HP ePrint application. The kicker: it runs Android. And not even the latest version of Android, no, it runs Android 4.1.1, and almost entirely unmodified from stock - the ePrint integration is an app - not the newer Android 4.2 that's been in the public since November 2012 (4.1.1 landed two months earlier than that). The Slate 7 also has no integrated GPS, no NFC, and no cellular radios to speak of. It's also around 11mm thick. The marquee feature of this low-end, moderately chunky (for 2013) disappointment of a tablet? The price: a surprising $169. The Slate 7 compares most closely with the Asus Nexus 7, and though the Nexus 7 is $30 more expensive, it has a much better processor, is thinner, has a better screen, and doesn't depend on HP for updates. The Slate 7 also compares well to the unreleased TouchPad Go tablet, though it had a better rear camera. And a better screen. And wireless charging. And an option for cellular integration. And webOS. Though in the TouchPad Go's defense, it was supposed to come out 18 months ago. If you're wondering if this new Slate 7 might be a tempting target for Open webOS porting, we have but one question to ask you: "With such pathetic specs, why bother?" There's a reason the Slate 7 will retail for $169, and that's because it's not that appealing of a tablet. It's likely the Slate 7 will be plenty open, if HP hasn't gone out of their way to lock it down, so putting Open webOS on it might not be that big of a leap (depending on the manufacturer of the processor and their receptiveness towards open source, that is). But as the WebOS Internals Twitter account pointed out today following the announcement, "With such 2010 specs, why would you bother?" Why, indeed. Our dear friend Phil from Android Central went hands-on with the Slate 7 at MWC, and while he found the specifications and screen of the tablet in person as underwhelming as we have from a distance, he was at least impressed by the industrial design, even if it is a bit on the chunky side (see: price). The Slate 7 is perhaps a look into where HP's industrial design would have taken webOS tablets had HP followed through on their commitment to webOS after purchasing Palm instead of canceling the hardware program in a fit of stupidity. And with that, we're not going to bother discussing the Slate 7 at any more length unless it for some reason is found to be running webOS. The tablet is due on shelves at US retail stores in April, which means we should expect it to be canceled around June anyway.

    • PreCentral: Open webOS Project brings back the VirtualBox emulator

      The end of another month brings yet another update from the Open webOS Blog giving us all a heads up on the most recent achievements related to our favorite open source OS. This month the gang dropped quite a bit of interesting information, probably the biggest of which was the revival of the VirtualBox emulator. Back when webOS was shiny and new, the emulator was an useful tool for developers to test device-specific features if they didn't have access to the appropriate hardware. As you can imagine, this is very important as developers want their end product to work as intended on all the devices it is available for. Since Open webOS stands to be ported to multiple devices from various manufacturers with all types of hardware configurations, the return of the Virtualbox emulator will likely prove to be invaluable. Next up is an achievement that is admittedly a bit over our heads: an upgrade to Yocto 1.3. What is Yocto? The Yocto Project provides open source back-end tools so developers can create their own custom Linux distributions, and that's for any hardware architecture. How exactly developers will take advantage of Yocto integration in Open webOS is an open question, but that's kind of the point. Couple with thinks like the integration of the Linux Standard Kernel and OpenEmbedded, Open webOS is looking at a wide array of potential hardware platforms on which to play. Last, but certainly not least, both nodejs and Enyo are getting upgrades in the coming month. The nodejs platform is currently getting a small upgrade to 0.8.18 and should be hitting available in its GitHub repo in "the coming days". In the meantime, the Enyo 2 team is working feverishly on the 2.2 update which will add both BlackBerry 10 and Windows 8 support. Yes, folks, Open webOS is still alive and kicking, and the team at HP isn't resting on their laurels now that they've completed the open source process. Progress is happening on all fronts, and while it might take some time, remember that all good things do.

    • PreCentral: Dash Weather brings double-height weather status to your notification area

      One of the things we wish has been utilized more in the webOS notification area was the option to display a status bar of some sort. There've been a few apps, like Weather Dashboard (and its TouchPad-sized variant) or the Sports Live! apps to display sports game score alerts. But by-and-large, the quasi-widget status potential with the webOS notification area was never fully realized. The homebrew LunaCE improvements have breathed new life into the dashboard potential for the TouchPad, offering the option for taller, and thus richer and more interactive, notifications. Taking full advantage of that is webOS Nation Forum member and developer Garret92c, who has whipped up a nice clean dashboard app for your weather, appropriately titled "Dash Weather". The app lives in your notification area and is compatible with both webOS tablets and smartphones. Dash Weather uses webOS's location services to get your local weather, so even GPS-less TouchPad users can get localized weather information thanks to ballparking it off your Wi-Fi IP address. On a smartphone or standard TouchPad, Dash Weather displays the current temperature, forecasted high and low, and two other bits of your choice, including the location, current conditions (cloudy/fair/etc), sunrise/sunset, and more. But what really makes Dash Weather is the LunaCE option, allowing you to have a double-height dashboard widget. With that taller space you can display more info at once (duh), and it thankfully carries over onto a LunaCE-enabled TouchPad's lock screen too. Dash Weather is available for free from the webOS Nation Homebrew Gallery, and through Preware and WebOS Quick Install. If you happen to like it, we recommend sending a donation the way of Garrett92c at the source link below.
