It was pointed out to me a few minutes ago, that I'm posting only positive reviews.
It is quite possible that without realizing it, that I'm doing so.
However, I also want to add that when the Pre came out, there was a great deal of discussion about if overly negative reviews and comments on this site, scared people away from the Pre & webOS.
If I have been cherry picking reviews, all I can do is apologize.
In order the balance the beam of my sin, here is a negative review, yet it does mention the fact that the reviewer will gladly update his review as soon as there are upgrades to webOS 3.0 , which HP has stated will come along shortly. Most of her complaints are with performance & speed.
Please make sure you read the last two paragraphs:

HP TouchPad: Where Does It Fit In?
Many of the issues I've encountered--the performance problems, the bad Web-page handling, the poor text and graphics rendering, and perhaps even the off-base colors--may be addressable via software fixes in the future. Only HP's developers know the extent to which software updates can address the TouchPad's disappointments. Before today's launch, HP said that it had an update planned for a few weeks out, and that the update takes care of reported issues related to performance, autocorrection, device rotation, messaging, email rendering, and Web browsing. The company is also working with Skype to optimize performance.
I'll be keeping an eye on HP's over-the-air updates, and if the company addresses some of the launch issues, I'll update this review accordingly. Until then, the TouchPad will be a tough sell in comparison with Apple's dominant iPad 2, and even with the nearest Android rivals. Great-sounding audio output, a clean interface design, and the ability to print will not alone sell the TouchPad.
