    THAT, is "sad".

    My advice: Lighten up, and have some real foresight and patience - there is always more than enough time to complain about that which really did happen, or has been phsysically determined to be absent, despite a promise to the contrary - but not on a device that hasnt even released yet.

    Sheesh.

    You might not have heard but the guy that made Taptalk forums has made another app for touchpad called "communities" that he says is leaps and bounds better.

    I think a lot depends on how quickly the app is available. I could be wrong, but I think most enterprises would be hesitant picking up bulk orders on launch day. Many of them will probably wait a month, then order some for testing before buying a lot. As long as editing is added shortly after launch I think it'll be ok.

    i think hp has demonstrated some preference in the tablet, if they can pick and choose to support one of the two, they will support tablet.

    yeah, they got citrix... and google docs as far as i have used have never had ne compatibility issues with word or excel.
    may not be the ideal solution for everyone but google docs editing works for me. usuing citrix works for most enterprise enviroment. so while not an ideal solution its def workable.

    To further suggest how difficult it might be, Microsoft's own Office team has had to produce updates for the Office Compatibility Pack used by Office XP and Office 2003 to address compatibility.
    Which is why I hate MS Office to the highest extend possible. I have a Mac and quite often when I get stuff written in MS Office for Windows I'm struggling opening it. Full compatability my a...

    The solution is easy though: LaTeX. Too bad too few people know that If they did, they'd never want to use MS Office again. Sure happened to me. First few weeks using LaTeX was a pain, but then I felt like in a wonderland, with beer rivers, flying pigs and all.

    Oh man, I sure hope there will be LaTeX on the Touchpad *dream* I'll finish my studies soon, maybe I'll look into it. Too bad I barely have any programming experience.

    The only applications that are 100% compatible with MS office are MS Office applications.
    Google Docs actually has a very high level of compatibility - as high as most people would need on a tablet type device.

    The big drawback to Google Docs is that it is an internet suite. You lose the network connection, you can't edit the docs. Nothing stored locally.

    blaming MS, Im afraid, won't be useful this time around. after all, quickoffice is not an upstart, its there for linux based android for quite a while.

    somebody at hp should be fired.
    This is so funny. Seriously.

    Somebody at HP should be fired, because QuickOffice hasn't finished the product yet?

    Why not someone at QuickOffice should be fired.

    Oh wait, that won't work. What fun is that to say on an HP forum.

    It works pretty well, but if you've never had any compatibility issues with word or excel, you haven't been trying very hard.

    But even if Google docs was 100% compatible, it wouldn't be an acceptable solution if you wanted to get something done on an airplane (unless it has wifi, which is still pretty rare in my experience).

    Buy a product based on what it can do today, not based on futures.

    The only one who should buy futures is a commodity trader.

    I can't remember how many times the Pre was promised Flash from January CES 2009 on. I do not think anything was done to deceive anyone. It just was not as easy as thought.

    Anyone who has bought bleeding edge products knows that if you need a feature, buy a product that has that feature...or wait.

    It is unfortunate that the editing suite won't be ready at launch.

    We just have to accept that we are imperfect human beings.

    But Google/docs should be accessible through the browser?!

    That should help.

    Case closed on my side.

    Best of luck for HPPalm for this endeavour.

    Best of luck is a good phrase, they will need it now. My decision has been made, I am getting an android tablet now, and an android phone. HP is behind the hardware curve taking entirely too long to get products out, already behind when they come.

    I love webOS and wish I could stick with it, but between being a sprint customer and their lack of interest in Palm anything, and HPs lack of delivering in areas most needed, I am left without a choice except to say goodbye to anything new. I'll keep my Pre till it dies, which will be soon.

    I'm not looking for the latest and greatest, I'll likely be getting a MOTO XPRT as it is a world phone android which Sprint sorely needs. This Tour is among the worst phones I've ever used, and the Pre is on its last leg. I have no viable other world phone replacement unless i go to Verizon which has no service in areas around me, or AT&T which is the same, no service.
