    I can't find a way to set an alarm on my Touchpad. Did HP leave this out or is it buried somewhere? I get my touchstone tomorrow and I would really like to use my Touchpad as an alarm clock.

    that's an advanced feature that will come in later releases!

    Seriously, HP has 300,000 people. Surely they could have deployed a few to spend a few hours developing things like alarms, calculator etc

    There are a couple of 99 cent alarm apps in the HP app store, I am using the "Simple Alarms" app and it works fine. It's nothing fancy but it works, wakes me up.

    Ok. This kinda catches me off guard because an alarm clock was included for free with the Pre. I will pay .99 to buy one but I somehow feel a little cheated by this.

    The TPad is also missing the calculator and Task List. Somebody brought it up in this post earlier this week.

    I know what you mean by the alarm, I'm a frequent traveler and prefer to use my phone/tablet as an alarm instead of messing with the hotel room's clock. Plus, I was going to toss the alarm clock at home and put a Touchstone for my pad to do that for me. Ohhhh well, if that's the only thing I have to complain about in life, guess I'm doin' pretty well.

    It costs one bottle of soda to fix this problem.
    Or one candy bar.
    Or however you want to look at it, it's really cheap to buy an alarm at the app store.
    +1 to simple alarms.

    No camera app to access the CAMERA either... all of these issues seem very trivial to not have at launch. The Pre had the same problem with the clock when it launched.
