HP Closes Palm webOS Retail Stores

HP has officially closed down the Palm webOS retail stores in the US, the move comes just a few weeks after HP announced that they would stop selling webOS based devices, and they dropped the price of the HP TouchPad down to $100, which led the device to sell out quickly.

HP bought Palm for $1.2 billion last year, and after poor sales of the new HP webOS devices, HP decided to put an end to producing webOS devices, but did the company really give webOS a chance?

iPhone 4 vs iPhone 4S Battery Comparison

I have only been using my new iPhone 4S for a couple of days now but I have already noticed a difference in the battery usage compared to that of my older iPhone 4. But the team over at iLounge have used the weekend to put both the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S in a head-to-head battle to see how their battery life compares to each other,  in certain circumstances.

In Apple’s official specifications, they claim that their new iPhone 4S has an improved talk time over the old iPhone 4 but worse standby time. As you can see from the statistics below iLounge show that the iPhone 4S lives up to Apple’s claims in the voice department, but doesn’t last as long as the iPhone 4 when using 3G data. But remember the new iPhone 4S has a dual core processor rather than a single.
