    So much for "this is a marathon not a sprint."

    Yeah, I agree. HP pretty much showed they're totally gutless. They got a mile into the marathon, saw they were further back in the pack then they wanted to be, and just gave up.

    A mile? I think Leo only went a block.

    I think the HP executives were just heard saying "A marathon is how long???....... Naahhhhh, not for me."

    That was always a silly metaphor.

    I don't think Leo ever wanted to sell phones. I think thats clear now.

    I bet there are major schisms occuring throughout HP as we speak!!

    na HP have enough going with their laptops/ printers etc etc............. next hp tablet will be win 7 like the acer w500. this was always an experiment to test the waters. i knew from day i bought my TP it wasnt good enough so got rid!

    Hell, it wasn't even a sprint! That nag broke down right out of the starting gate.

    What gets me is that the webos execs came out and said "if sales are lackluster at first, we understand, and will battle through it" or whatever the exact quote was.

    Palm was always cooler than HP. This sucks. Royally.

    i am loving the humors.

    I am hating the fact tho.

    This is the difference between Hp and real successful, innovative companies. MS stick to xbox and lost money for several years before it took off. Apple sticked to mobileme for quite a while, even though mobileme is a completely wacko job to begin with.

    HO, with the excellent asset at hand, couldn't managing two months. What a joke.
