For my birthday, my mother in law bought me a touchstone & keyboard for my Touchpad. It was a little bittersweet, since the Touchpad is now obsolete tech. But holy smokes, the keyboard and charger really add to my enjoyment of the tab.
Till now, I've been using my Touchpad as a portable web terminal, music player and game device. Today I opened up QuickOffice and started writing technical documentation for one of the projects I'm working on. The keyboard is tight, accurate, and all kinds of awesome. When I go out on smoke breaks, I come back to an Exhibition mode Facebook collage, and can quickly tap out responses to folks' posts.
Really - if someone cooks up a remote desktop app, I wouldn't even need to use my laptop. And I know there are homebrew folks on that task..
Sure it's discontinued tech. That doesn't mean it's stopped working. Just a great tablet and accessories. Now I just hope I can score another two for my wife and son before production finally stops.
