I wanted to enjoy the touchpad - I really tried. But I have two issues that make it dificult for me to justify keeping it right now.
First is the lack of document editing. I know it is supposed to come, but we don't know when.
Second is the buggy calendar app. The first bug I noticed was the default calendar selection in preferences. The label never changes even though you could select different default calendars. Then I noticed that you can't see an entire day on the screen without having to scroll. There is no more accordion compression and no way to scale the display for more hours to show.
I could probably live with all that for a while. But then I discover that the calendar app does not sync reliably with google calendars. According to a live chat rep, webOS only syncs with google one month back and two months forward. This is apparently a webOS limitation - a new limitation, because this was never the case on the pre. I use several calendars on google and frequently schedule events six months to a year in advance - with no issues on webOS in the past.
Well it just so happens that doc editing and calendaring are the most important functions I need in a tablet. Touchpad just isn't ready in those areas. If I was confident that these issues would be fixed in the next few weeks with what ever update is pending, I could wait, but let's face it - there is no good track record with HPalm. Promises [perceived or not] keep getting pushed back or completely abandoned.
I really wish someone could assure me that this tablet will do what I need because I love webOS, but I don't want to be stuck with an expensive device that will not perform the basic functions I'm looking for.
