HP Tested WebOS to Run Over Twice as Fast on the iPad

Internal HP tests found that webOS runs over twice as fast on the iPad than it does on the TouchPad, reports TNW.

The hardware reportedly stopped the team from innovating beyond certain points because it was slow and imposed constraints, which was highlighted when webOS was loaded on to Apple's iPad device and found to run the platform significantly faster than the device for which it was originally developed.

With a focus on web technologies, webOS could be deployed in the iPad's Mobile Safari browser as a web-app; this produced similar results, with it running many times faster in the browser than it did on the TouchPad.

According to the report, the webOS software team wanted the two year old TouchPad hardware gone. Supposedly HP had another 7-inch TouchPad Go in the pipeline that was better looking and had a better feel. Also, a lighter next generation model with a higher-resolution 'retina' display and a metal body was in the works; however, it's unclear if any of these devices will see the light of day following HP's announcement that it will stop selling tablets.
