    I profess to maybe having my head where the sun doesn't shine - but - my gut feeling is the it's totally price-dependent. IF the put more out at $99/$149/$240(white 64GB) that they absolutely would. If they can manage to figure out how to make money off it - a load of non iPad folks would be all over it.

    Opps - sorry my mistake, I thought you were saying that the app would sell a million units!

    Time for bed!

    Maybe MY BAD - maybe I missed a post somewhere - and it is AN APP - in which case - I'm probably with you!!

    Having reread - I THINK that the Million was referring to TP's, not an app.

    Completely agree on the price-dependent statement. That's what's causing this craze. Palm Pre's were available for next-to-nothing, and the Veer was dirt cheap too, and they sold horribly in comparison to the competition.

    It's the allure of a new niche product (tablets) + a ridiculously low price ($99) combined with a limited supply that won't be restocked after Oct.

    Hi all,

    Not sure what the best thread to post this question:

    We know about 200,000 Touchpads will be coming out next month at the fire-sale rate.

    What is the best way to order one to make your chances good that you might get one.

    I was lucky enough to get my email entered on the HP's website before they stopped taking people's names that are interested in ordering a Touchpad should more be made.

    I don't know what else I need to do. I know to keep checking here to read about the latest news but what is a good link to make sure I can get an order in fast?

    Thanks!

I sure would like to know how much money a developer makes in a market where their app will most likely be overlooked by the shear amount of apps available, to a market that maybe has a stagnant userbase and an uncertain future (no pun intended), but still has a large enough userbase and can have very high app visibilty and the ability to make a profit cause they can put out an app that is unique to the platform.

    IDK....at this moment WebOS for tablets doesn't have any pinball apps (i'm pretty sure you can find a flash based one on the web though), and i think a developer can make a nice profit if they develop a real quality game and price it at a fair dollar amount.
    If your app is of quality, and people enjoy it, it doesn't matter how saturated an app market/store is, it will stand out and it will make money.

    Not if it is hard to find. Also, most people go after the low hanging fruit first. If there is a similar app to yours that is free or lower priced, people download and use that app first.

    That doesn't change what I said above. If someone likes your application, they'll tell someone else about it. Your assertion applies anywhere; a consumer is most likely to check out and download a free application before they are a paid one, however, if they find themselves yearning for something more then they will likely search again.

    Hacker News | iPhone vs Android app sales: numbers from an indie developer

    The link above is a little tidbit from an iOS (and Android) developer that shared his sale numbers for a few weeks. It's interesting that a top 350 app on iOS brings in a little over $420 a day on average.

    I'd venture to say a top 1,000 paid app easily brings in over $100 a day on average.

    yes, this is related to topic at hand, keep on checking Twitter and precentral, HP committed to fulfilling first any processed orders but something tells me they may have some left if they are not available until end of Oct which is only a month away from black Friday and holiday releases of new models.

    They will burn the money on the bait and hook and not on the product itself, In this case their IPADs. Tablets are "in" now, they won't be "IN" pretty soon and they know it. They will sell them for premium to prepare for that inevitable.

    Exactly and there's a lot of unfulfilled orders on the books. HP most likely won't have much, or any, to sell to those of us with nothing but cancelled orders and no TP to show for it.

    Interesting to note a marketing study was released last week that indicated that if you used averaged number of downloads per app as a metric, that using the ios app store as the base, that the Nokia ovi store hit 150% of base at the top and webOS was at minus 95% (android was at something like minus 50% or something I am away from home and don't have the figures to hand).

    I already received an email stating that because of the high demand and already unfulfilled orders, I will not be able to get another touchpad.

    So all the new stock of touchpad coming out at the end of the month is going to unfulfilled orders from HP's original fire sale off their website?
    I was hoping to get another one for my wife since my original order was cancelled from Barnes and Nobles.

    I'd like to see data for the TouchPad say from Aug 24-Sept 24.

    Hi all,

    Perhaps so many apps being sold will help another firm decide it wants to license webOS.

    I wonder how much modification would it take a phone designed for android to run webOS or for webOS to be modified to run on lets say a phone similar to the Samsung Epic?

    I also wonder if the webOS design group is working on that currently & if it pays to do so or is HP going to flushing more $ down the toilet and then completely dump webOS!


    Take care,

    Jay

    Hard to say. Leo is a mental defective and I doubt even he knows which way he is going to turn the company 5 minutes from now. The board needs to dump him while there is still a company left to try to bail out.

    webOS is designed for Qualcomm's technology. Samsung doesn't work with Qualcomm, but HTC does, so if any previous hardware can be used that's an HTC hardware
