While I appreciate and in some regards agree with your gushing comments of the TP. To say it just works, is a bit of an exaggeration. Some of the more detailed oriented and business minded folk may find the overall experience to be rather lacking due to the novelty of the product and the less than satisfactory app ecosystem, at the moment. I trust with time it will get better and I'm glad the price as been lowed to reflect these things. A less exuberant perspective but more balanced.
Granted, webos is fantastic, I greatly dislike ios (it's nothing but a giant app launcher now) and am rather spoiled by webos 3 now that I have an ipad and TP to direct compare. However, there are several little things that need tweaked to include some minor lag here in there (yes it's there even patched, updated and using uberkernel), notice I say minor, in comparison to ios. This is a development issue that will be worked out in future versions I'm sure.
The copy/paste functions need to be made smoother and more intuitive, feels like I have to fight to get it to work at times.
There is zero ereader to speak (please don't mention preader, it's awful on the TP) of and a more robust document editing/viewing app would be greatly welcomed. Something like goodreader though they said they are sticking with ios exclusively.
I have to pay a subscription to use instapaper on the TP; not cool if one doesn't utilize the service very much. A native app with one time purchase price to support the author would be great.
The browser doesn't do bookmarklets, this just may be how it's going to be for webos, fine. But if ios can do it, I don't see why webos shouldn't add this to it's features as well.
There is more that is documented in other threads, no need to repeat here. This isn't "nitpicking" as these are all little things that can add up to be a frustrating experience for some and make webos less appealing than it should be. I think you'll find that many of the really picky posts are from folks that just want the platform to succeed and they are disappointed it doesn't live up to that potential at this moment. I want to settle on a mobile platform and be done with it and I want it to be webos. However, practical considerations and limitations prevent that from happening, for the moment.
It'll be a real damn shame If webos doesn't do well in HPs hands. If the TP is mainly a toy for you and mostly entertainment via web sites and some games, it excels and beats the rest. However, more "demanding" and productive tasks will have to remain on the giant app launcher known as ios until webos can catch up.
