Well i went to 3 different Walmarts this morning, and called 3 others in my area (yes we have that a crap load of Walmarts in the Chicago NW suburbs). And guess what All touch pads where sold out by 7am according to the workers in the electronics department. As a Webos user (we have 3 pixis in our household) and a diehard Webos fan, I am kind of mad about this. Even if touchpad was not discontinued and remained at the original price I would have bought one when I am able to afford it.
I never knew there where so many people who liked the touchpad and webos for it to be sold out everywhere so fast. But I may be wrong, and most of those who bought it did just for the deal and have no idea what webos is, and probably never heard of the touchpad until yesterday.
So get ready Precentral forums for an influx of new members. I have a feeling we are gonna get some really wacky questions soon. so here is a list of what we may see.
What is Webos?
What is a card?
What is a Profile?
What is synergy?
how do you multitask?
Does this have retina display?
Can i put IOS on my touchpad?
Can i put android on my touchpad?
how do you put widgets on this thing?
where are all the apps? Where are the fart apps?
What is palm?
What is a pre and or Pixi?
What is a preware?
what is homebrew, and how much does this coffee cost?
I know i sound a little like a sore looser i couldn't get one, but it irks me that so many people who probably never even heard of webos, are extremely excited by getting this deal at the expense of the end of our beloved Webos.
