HP TouchPad 3.0.4 update adds camera app, increased performance

Here’s something we didn’t expect between all the hustle and bustle of this busy news day. HP has quietly updated the TouchPad with an over-the-air update to webOS 3.0.4, bringing improved performance and a dedicated app for capturing photos and video from the 1.3MP front-facing camera. While fairly minor, it addresses a few of the lingering issues that TouchPad owners face, and confirms that HP has not completely abandoned the discontinued device.

The remaining changes are as follows:
– 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
– User interface improvements
– Other enhancements such as support for accelerometer events in Adobe Flash Player
– More robust Skype video calling
