    Who confirmed this?

    if this is confirmed true on july 1, no touchpad for me, and no more webOS for me, if HP can't get document editing for their TP on release I doubt they can do anything.

    Seriously, HP, what is the problem?

    There are quickoffice, doc to go, think free office, picsel smart office, officesuit. You can't pay any one of those up and get a working license in one year? for your so obsessed business market?

    Not true at all, because we have a rumor that says a rep was right, doesn't make a sales rep more trustworthy.


    But since you trust sales people, I've got a bridge for sale, and beach front property in Tennessee.
    I love physical keyboards... but there is two devices that would make me consider a slab, one is something running a full version of Open webOS. The other is an iPhone!!!! HA HA just kidding (about the iPhone that is)...

    Exactly how was Rubinstein being "not-so-truthful".

    According to P|C, what he said was that HP was "working with Quickoffice to include the Quickoffice Connect Mobile Suite, which lets you view and edit documents, such as Microsoft Word and Excel". No promise of day 1 availability.

    good point.

    as I recall, they didn't say touchpad would have anything by day 1 at all.

    Its just a expensive email, internet and calendar device then, on day 1.

    Lets wait and see how many people will buy that.

    Looks like the keynote is still on Youtube but HP made it private. I'll just transcribe what Rubinstein word for word:

    "TouchPad isn't just a pretty face - it's a powerful work tool too, and has everything you need to be instantly productive. [some keyboard talk] You can access AND (his emphasis) edit your Microsoft documents since TouchPad comes bundled with QuickOffice."

    I notice you offer simply more nonsense, but avoided the question.

    How was Rubenstein being "not so truthful"?

    I forgot QuickTime X can trim videos. Here's the relevant clip for anyone interested: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3576538/rubi...uickoffice.mov

    nonono, he was truthful alright, I apologize to mr. Rubinstein. Next time, I would surely not make such mistake again.

    Unless he says something will be available on a certain time, it should be treated as vapor and not something solid at all. This is a grave mistake I made alright.

    Bottom line though, is that what the representative said jibes exactly what what Rubenstein said back in February:

    Quote Originally Posted by erasef301 View Post

    An "update in the works right now" (in June) jibes with Ruby stating (in February) that HP was "working with Quickoffice to include the Quickoffice Connect Mobile Suite"

    I find it interesting that some folks on here pick and choose from this rep what they want to believe.

    They believe the rep that it's not coming this way out of the box, but they don't believe the rep that they are working on an update right now.

    Why would the rep lie about one and not the other?

    Why should it be "treated as vapor"?
    On the TouchPad, they've met the timetables given.

    Of course, anyone following these forums knows why you would label it such, but that doesn't make it so.

    I still want to see what TP actually ships with. The wording of the info on the front page article doesn't say anything about Word and Excel editing.

    I am just wondering if there is no mention of it because the edit feature will be an in app purchase... Just saying the text below is far from conclusive and makes no mention of editing those two types of docs.

    "The initial version of QuickOffice Connect Mobile Suite will support viewing of Microsoft Office Word and Excel documents. QuickOffice is expected to make PowerPoint viewing capabilities available at launch via a downloadable update in the App Catalog, and to add PowerPoint editing capabilities via a downloadable update in Q3 2011."

    what time table? who gave a timetable? when?

    day 1? day 2? day 3? dat 50? day 100? day 360? shortly? when is shortly?

    There is no time table, there is just rambling. Im not gonna make that mistake again.

    Any buyer in the market shouldn't make that mistake neither, no app? no purchase.
    Of course, anyone following these forums knows why you would label it such, but that doesn't make it so.
    lets leave other people's words in their own mouth, shall we? I don't pretend to represent other people, and you probably don't neither.

    I just tweeted @QuickOffice expressing concern over the lack of Editing on Touchpad launch. The last 2 times I've tweeted them, they've responded. I suggest all of you tweet and mention them letting them know how much this means to us all. If they get a floodgate of concern over this, they might up the priority on completing it. Can't hurt!

    They haven't responded to this one just yet, I was saying the last 2 times I've tweeted them in the past, they responded so I'm guessing they will respond. They tend to take mentions seriously.

    Well, I don't think he deliberately lied in February. But if the TouchPad really doesn't come with document editing out of the box, I don't see how anyone could look back at what he said and not think that he promised something that wasn't delivered.
