While the HP TouchPad does has VPN access built in to webOS 3.0, setting it up between your computer and the tablet isn’t exactly an easy process. You know what is easy? Installing an app on both your PC or Mac and your TouchPad. That’s just what Splashtop’s Remote Desktop software has been doing for webOS phones for several months now, but when it might come to the newest member of the webOS family was an unknown, as Splashtop had previous said that they had no plans for a TouchPad app.

That seems to have changed recently, however, as Splashtop responded to a post on the Twitters a few days back that “Actually we do have plans... things change.”

Things change, eh? Yeah, they do. Maybe it was HP’s plans for massive a TouchPad push into the corporate and small business world, or perhaps one of those developer SWAT teams was dropped into their HQ in San Jose (a hop, skip, and a jump from Sunnyvale), or maybe things are just looking up for webOS and the TouchPad. Regardless of the reasoning, we’re looking forward to running a full Splashtop Remote Desktop app on our TouchPads.
