Any idea if the TouchPad would exhibit similar behaviour?
I was in Futureshop on the weekend looking at the TouchPad. It was a little disappointing, they had advertised it heavily in the flyer, with about 50% of the information incorrect, and when I went in I could not find a live demo anywhere. There are 7 or so different tablets on live demo, I had to ask the sales rep and he had to go get the touchpad from the "tech room".
Anyway, I asked him several questions but he did not have any knowledge of the platform (on the plus side, he was very enthusiastic about it as opposed to the usual, why bother, buy an android os device).
My question is, I am currently unable to perform services on my Palm Pre that require a popup confirmation window to open. As an example, up at the cottage I wanted to shuffle some investments, I opened the browser, set up a trade, but could not actually do the trade as when I hit next a confirmation window is supposed to open, but would not open on my Pre. I had to set up wifi on my phone and use my friends idevice. I was not happy with that.
Will the same problem exist if I were to get a TouchPAD?
