The difference between Cupcake 1.5 and Eclair 2.1 FAR surpass changes from webOS 1.4 to webOS 3.0, IMHO.
Just for the record, Google is primarily a software company, but I think you'll find they have other projects than just Android development...
The problems with the TouchPad are widespread and consistent. Sure, I could go to Best Buy and check out the TouchPad for 5 minutes and it might not have any problems. The people reviewing the device had it for hours or days to play with it. Even PreCentral's review talks about lag and lock ups. It's not an illusion.
