I believe that HP released the TouchPad before it and it's services (like HP Play) were completely done because they were forced to. The Fan base here was roaring up in angry fans because they just weren't releasing anything. If they had kept it and finished it up and released it in August do you think anyone would be there to get it anymore? I believe they did a better thing by releasing it in July, even though it is not completely done. What is happening today? All the reviewers are giving it negative reviews because the TouchPad does not meet the written down paper requirements. Yet the users on here who read them are flipping a 180 and telling them that they are wrong and getting a TouchPad anyway. What would have happened on August 1st if they released it then? Better Reviews but plagued users who are tired of in the coming months and waiting, waiting, waiting.
At the end of July, we will probably be getting a TouchPad update that will include Document Editing, HP Play, and a fully GPU Accelerated WebOS 3.0. Meaning, a TouchPad that is fast, productive, and reliable. Then, when the TouchPad is at it fullest, they release the finished Pre3.
