I called 4 walmarts till I found a TP at the smallest one. The others said they would set it up on mon. or had not heard of it.
Hopped in the car to go see it, it was a bit of a disappointment to be honest. WebOS is great, the cards whip around like nothing, but I opened the calendar and it was dog slow, 3-5 seconds before a screen would load. It was populated with demo calendar data.
I fired up free teather on my pre 2 to do some internet surfing. Went to google reader, didn't work very well in portrait mode, I had to switch it to landscape mode to get it to scroll, but it was still sluggish.
The hardware felt like my original pre, like cheap shiny plastic. it was right next to an acer tablet that was aluminum and I was jealous of the nice materials. and the android live desktop was pretty cool looking.
The speakers were really nice sounding.
the smooth edges were nicer to hold than the sharp edged ipad2 but it still felt cheap and easy to break.
Swipe up worked, but there was no wave launcher, I was disappointed about that.
The sales display was poor, it was tucked back in the corner, right under a sign that said playbook
Typing on it was hard, even just using just type. I have smallish hands so stretching my thumbs to hit keys in the middle was not super easy. I can see why iOS 5 has that new thumb keyboard.
My sense is that this is still a palm product. I will wait until they come out with a better version. Palm never does it right on the first iteration of something.
Too bad. I was really looking forward to it. I was anti tablet, then pro table. I think I might be more interested in a clam shell version with a kb. seems more useful.
