HP to Launch New webOS Magazine App with TouchPad

Today HP announced that the HP TouchPad would ship with Pivot, a new magazine that HP launched just for the TouchPad.

This won’t be your ordinary magazine. HP plans to use Pivot to help TouchPad owner find useful apps. “Pivot brings app discovery to a new level for customers and developers alike,” said Richard Kerris, vice president, webOS Worldwide Developer Relations, HP. “We want our partners to experience webOS as the growing platform of opportunity, and we’re investing in new ways to help market their applications on our platform.”

It’s going to be published on a monthly basis in English, French, German and Spanish, and all the content will be written by professional journalists and photographers.  The publication is designed to complement the HP webOS App Catalog. Pivot will showcase a broad range of applications – and the developers who create them.

You’ll find the app on the TouchPadwhen it ships on the first of the month. Updates will be sent out automatically.
