    Thanks. We are posting all the reviews into one thread to find them all easier. Also to find other threads about Touchpad more easily (Engadget review nothing special anyway)

    its not 1.2.3.4.5

    its either apple, apple level, or everything else.

    When you are categorized as everything else, the shortcomings in hardwares get so much more significant when compared to android tabs.

    That Laptop Mag review is incredible. Thorough, balanced, and SO in-depth.

    Anyone who wants to read a lot about the TouchPad should click that link. Their principal complaints are valid ones (seriously, why can't webOS accelerometer behavior calm the hell down, and why can't webOS ever seem to be optimized well enough to run more smoothly?). /rant

    They loved so many aspects of it, I'm rather surprised it got such a low score.

    Only in the world of spec geeks.

    webos internals on twitter is speculating that the palm servers are down because they are delivering updates.
    I hope HP can fix the sluggishness, otherwise they are going to get a high return on the pre-orders and people are not going to look back.

    http://developer.palm.com is down "Service Unavailable, Internal-Reason: 132" - updates for TouchPad release perhaps?

    Not good thus far.

    I am hoping from CNET and other ones ASAP!

    Isn't that the market HP is going after?

    engadget:
    Holding this in one hand and either an iPad 2 or a Galaxy Tab 10.1 in the other leaves you wondering why you'd ever be compelled to buy the HP when you could have the thinner, lighter alternative for the same money. Meanwhile, the performance left us occasionally wanting and, well, what is there to say.

    The Sunspider benchmark from Engadget's review is just...wow

    Similarly, we ran our freshly-booted TouchPad through the SunSpider JavaScript Benchmark and netted a 3,988ms result. That again compares unfavorably to a 2,213ms on the Galaxy Tab 10.1, and a nearly identical 2,173ms on the iPad 2.

    Honestly I don't care about the weight! I don't know why they keep HARPING ON THIS! LOLS

    Let's keep one thing in mind: Leo has already said that TouchPad2 has moved over to the successful Laptop Division of HP for design. What you are looking at could be the last hurah for Palm. The next TouchPad could be completely different than this one.

    Also, HP computers tend to get poorer marks than Apple PCs and yet HP still sells more of those.
    JayhawkOne and NoICon like this.

    No. If they were targeting the Engadget- and TIMN- and Gizmodo-readers of the world, they'd have shot the thing full of steroids and threw Honeycomb on it. TouchPad is pretty clearly targeted at enterprise and the average prosumer, IMO.

    Price point doesn't quite line up there, but this is a convo for another thread.

    looks and feels is one of the most direct thing a buyer will notice, I don't see the problem with emphasis that.

    Tablets are luxury show off devices to start with.

    Unfortunately Apple has done such a good job, no reviewer is going to recommend anything over the iPad 2. As long as we can get reviewers to say it is better than most android tablets Touchpad has a chance.

    so you are basically saying reviews don't matter. Since those are most read review sites you just mentioned.

    Which is a fair point. Lets see how the sale goes with this kind of, albeit may not be important, reviews.

    Because they picked something that was fine a few months ago with another tablet. There are many people running around now with the "heavy" iPad1 who are doing just fine.

    WSJ and others harped on sluggishness, battery life issues, lack of Netflix app and other apps--these are more key issues, if TouchPad has these down, the heaviness would not be an issue.

    Im not surprised by the summary of that review. Im still getting it for the OS and knowing BIG things WILL be happening.
    Try diplomacy first. You can always conquer them later...

    Why get a tablet then? Why not just get a small sheet of pressed gold?

    we can't get them to say anything, but most reviews did mention android tablets, e.g.,
    Holding this in one hand and either an iPad 2 or a Galaxy Tab 10.1 in the other leaves you wondering why you'd ever be compelled to buy the HP when you could have the thinner, lighter alternative for the same money. Meanwhile, the performance left us occasionally wanting and, well, what is there to say.
