    I am in a bit of a dillemma, so after some thoughts. I am an iPad 1 user, I really have nothing to complain about the device, it does what I need, the battery life is great, performance is good, apps are there.

    But I recently got a Pre2 and am strangely drawn to WebOS after initially not liking it. Thus I am considering selling the iPad and buying a touchpad.

    So my question is, do I go for a Touchpad now, or wait for this rumoured faster CPU/white 64GB version due in a month? I assume it is going to be more expensive and I don't really need 64GB.

    I know I am going to give up apps like Flipboard, Pulse etc, but things like Synergy, tap to share, the notifications, proper multi-tasking all appeal to me.

    Interested in folks thoughts!

    Thanks.

    I would say its up to you. I've had the TouchPad for a few days now and don't have any issues with it. it's plenty fast for me and does what I need it to do. The only time I get slowdowns is when i am heavy multitasking, like loading two web pages while facebook is updating and I try opening a new app. Even then it only bogs up for a few seconds before it gets back to working fast again. Its amazingly fast already. If you don't need the extra space I would say go with the ones out right now, they have a few bugs but a OTA update will be fixing those in a few weeks. I do suggest going to your local Best Buy to try one out though, that way you can get a better Idea of what its like.

    Wait if you think that the TouchPad is lacking in any way. Do it if you feel it serves your needs.

    In the world of technology there is no waiting. If you find yourself waiting for device a then you will hear about device b coming out..so you will wait for device b to come out but then device c is supposed to b coming..it's a never ending cycle that you will get caught up in.

    I would just get the TouchPad because waiting is never really worth it. If you are attracted to the TouchPad then get it. It has a plenty fast processor and if you don't need 64GB then I don't see why not.

    Personally, I'd wait. If the new one comes out and it's not what you'd expected, or wanted, you can still get the original TP. I bought my Pre- on the day of release. Within 6 months it was already in Palm's rearview mirror.

    Unfortunately, you won't be able to Touch-to-share between the TouchPad and the Pre2. You could use neato! in it's place (that is if it's available on the TouchPad, I don't know).

    If you're OK with that, than I'd say go for it.

    I say wait until the software update comes out to buy the 1st generation Touchpad or, if you have the money wait to buy the 64GB one. By then the sofware update should be out. I love my Touchpad, but I recommended to my cousin (who wanted to get an iPad but now wants a Touchpad) to wait on buying one because the current version doesn't have document editing (which should be fixed in the update).

    Wait. You already have an tablet(iPad) and you have no complaints about it. Keep it and save your money. If you didn't already own a working tablet, my suggestion would be for the TouchPad.

    Depends on how much you can get for it. I like the os on my touchpad more than I like apples ios...

    I would probably wait for the 64gb versions to see what upgrades are added. Heck, i'll probably have a 32gb version for sale as I already want more local storage.
