I understand your frustration guys, I also can't wait to get my hands on one. But, really, do you think it really changes anything now, that it's released in July, August or September?
March vs August would have made a difference. August or September...
What I'm trying to say is try not to sound like you're going to hang yourself in the next minute and think how great the device we'll get will be.
WebOS on a big screen, slim and tough, a keyboard, 1.4Ghz, touchstone technology, touch to share, Skype, etc...
It's still very cool IMO.
About HP and their releases... they focused on the touchpad... they delivered a brand new webos tablet with a new SDK, spec wise it's on par or better than competitors, design wise not so much. But overall, I say kudos to them. They got the veer out with an OS update in two monthes after announcement. That's two product releases in 3 monthes, they can't focus on everything at once I guess. Focussing on the Veer first was probably a mistake, but it was surely the one that was the fastest to get ready, and in order to calm down the angry precentral readers, it became a priority
Add an earthquake in Japan, an highly necessary touchpad update, and you get a release date in end of August/September.
Wall street may still not like it though.
