They should be able to introduce a new version but with the support that they provided for the tablet I doubt they will do something about it

Back to the touch screen. Has anyone updated the BIOS straight from 1.07 to 1.10A and have it work or have people just gone through 1.08 --> 1.09 --> 1.10?
(My English is very poor. Sorry in advance.)
Last week, I updated the BIOS from 1.07 to 1.10A and then install the touchscreen firmware.
Unfortunately, the touchscreen response became bad.

Is this issue fixed?
I have not got the tablet but found that this is the ONLY tablet that satisfy my requirement of having a pen and proper keyboard. However, if the touch screen does not work, it is a bit like a Ferrari that cannot steer left, i.e.. useless.
Gotta make a decision =(

If any of you still own this tablet sell it. I had two of them one had the firmware issue with touch lag the other had wifi issues. It has been 8 months since we identified the touch screen lag issues and tried to bug HP to fix it and they have yet to fix it.
HP has abandoned this product and will not fix it and being stuck on 1.07 forever is going to hinder the tablet's ability to ever get new features or be more compatible with Win 10, their are fixes in later firmware for Win 10 specific issues.
This tablet is only good on paper in real life it is a complete disaster. i would advise you to sell the tablet on Ebay get whaever money you can for it and buy a Surface 3. Even though the Surface 3 is alot bigger it is still light and has given me no issues since owning it for the last 6 months. I returned 2 HP 608's and these tablets are a complete and utter disaster.

I have the pen for this tablet. It sucks. HP went with the bottom-of-the-barrel low-end Atmel digitizer. The pen requires significant pressure just to be recognized as being in contact with the screen. It's a terrible experience.
Unfortunately, at this time, no one makes a viable Windows tablet in the 8" form factor. I suggest you set your sights on a bit larger device in order to have all the functionality you were hoping to get from the 608.
I have a Dell Venue 11 Pro. It's thinner and lighter than any of the Surfaces. It has 8gb RAM, an i5 processor, 256gb m.2 SSD, the screen is beautiful, and drawing on it using the matching pen is a sublime experience. It just works, and it works like you would want it to. Its own weight is enough to draw, the pressure sensitivity is exact, accuracy is pin point...all around prefect tablet for me.
Dell makes an 8" 4gb tablet as well: the Venue 8 Pro. I haven't tried it, but I would definitely not bigger with HP's product
