so ive spent the last week seeing how far i can get just using the TP as a primary work device. Here are my impressions:
* wireless does not travel well. Moving bewteen enviroments results in wireless literally resetting, getting signal, loseing signal. Will lock on eventually
* wierd issue where screen dims and brightens during use
* pauses, pauses pauses! You will occasionally retype or multiple select as you think the device didnt register your input
* no arrow keys on the keyboard.makes selecting a location within text trial and error
* system has occasionally rebooted during use
* cant edit or create docs
* cant connect to resources or content at work
* useless away from a wireless connection
* anti-glare screen and HP case are must haves $$$
*my first choice for doing email and calendar
* handles most of what I want to do on the web
* multitasking - love listening to podcasts while working through email while looking up info on the web
* drop it in the cradle for charging
* notes app is basic but functional for taking notes during conference calls and sending as an email to yourself and others
* viewing flash - how does the ipad get by without it?
* WebOS is a good concept
* the hardware and software are not as mature as IOS and Android
* if HP wants to gain traction with this device they should acknowledge this and bring their device in below current market pricing, not at the same
* pay developers to bring on apps ASAP, they are currently trickling in
* work with variuos verticals (health care, finance, manufacturing) and learn and adapt to thier needs.
* call microsoft and build some apps/functionality to work with their productivity tools. (hey, its compitition with Apple!)
* open up functionalityto work with other mobile platforms. I likely wont get a Palm 3 but would find additional functionality if the TP worked with my WP7.
Ok group, what are your thoughts for saving this platform?
