    i got the same thing with my centro and treo pro, boy it got irritating, i showed them multitasking on my centro with TealOS(webOS emulator), still one of sickest OS's out there to be able to do that.

    Can I have a Kleenex?


    It doesn't help when I keep my Touchpad
    in a Griffin folio case made for the iPad.

    No... the Touchpad cannot play MKVs, unless you buy the app for it.
    (a buggy $6.99 app call Kalemsoft)

    My Samsung Galaxy Tablet can play 1080p/720p MKV videos straight
    out of the box with its built-in video player. In fact, my old Samsung
    Galaxy S smartphone can also play 720p mkv videos without the need
    for any additional apps.

    I personally don't give a crap how my Macs look, I love the OS, and it's the only reason I stick with Apple and it's high prices. Don't want to try that Hackintosh stuff, I just want to pull it out of the box, restore my old Mac from my Time Machine backup, and go about my day.

    But it doesn't hurt that the products look dead sexy

    I'm no expert, per se, but that seems like it's doing more than one thing at one time..... (and I totally understand with the stock browser, and if you have 2 or 3 of those cards open, and they do pause)....but try what I just suggested, and see for yourself.
    I'm buying my first WebOS app because of you!

    When people as me if my 32GB touchpad is an iPad, I just say:
    "no, and it certainly isn't as useful or nice as an iPad. But it cost me 75% less than an iPad and pretty much does exactly the same things"

    I should have explained better I guess. I take mine to work with me every night. It's in my work truck all night. I don't ride transit, as I'm 2km from work. So for me taking it with me wherever I go, usually consists of taking it to work, as I don't venture very far during the day.

    Glad I amused you....wasn't my intention though

    I take mine to work and sometimes even use it there. For some reason, my coworkers never confuse it with an iPad. Never.

    The biggest problem with your main argument is that the TouchPad was not released last year. It was released this year after the iPad 2 had been out for months already. You don't compare Canon's newest top DSLR with Nikon's last model do you? No, you compare it to Nikon's current top DSLR offering...

    I think you are missing my point so I need to clarify. The iPad and even the iPad 2 are missing features that some Android tablets have, like SD card slots, USB host mode, and HDMI out (iPad 1 only). The iPad 2 isn't the thinnest or lightest tablet on the market anymore or even the most portable. When you bring that up to die hard iPad owners they brush that off. They are happy with the iPad as it is and obviously a lack of those features did not effect sales. What I think that die hard iPad fans fail to understand is that everybody does that for the devices they chose to buy. No one cared about the lack of a rear camera on the iPad even though the original Galaxy Tab and Archos tablets had one. That was not a must have feature. It only magically became one once it was added to the iPad 2. No one cared about thinnest when the iPad was chubby, only after the sleek iPad 2 was released. It's weird how something only seems to matter once Apple does it and really didn't matter when someone else was doing it before. It is somehow revolutionary after Apple gets on board? Just like apps were meaningless when Windows Mobile and PalmOS were out but all of sudden became meaningful when Apple launched the "there's an app for that" campaign. Die hard Apple fans forget where they came from with a quickness then crap on those who are just starting out for not being where they are now.

    Wow a lot of errors in this post. The ipad1 and ipad2 have very slick and simple dongles for hdmi, usb and sd. They wanted the tablet itself to be very thin and not bogged down by slots etc thus the inexpensive dongles. I'd prefer to have them onboard but i dont use them that much anyway.

I bought the TouchPad for the larger screen, Flash, and document editing, which the Pre doesn't have. Where you one of the ones in line for the first iPhone and Droid also? Weird that you admit being a sheep.

    Edit: Answered my own question in the first sentence.
    Reasons I Bought The TouchPad:

    1. It was $150.

    2. I love the Android OS and after seeing the video from the person that had Android pre-installed on their TouchPad I was convinced a port wasn't too far away. Admittedly, I didn't research the product at all before buying it. I didn't even read up about anything webOS related until after I placed my order. The extent of my knowledge about the TouchPad was what I saw in the 1 or 2 commercials they had and the short amount of time (less than 2 minutes before moving on to the Android tablets) I played with one at Best Buy when they first came out. As much as I love Android, I'm not paying $400+ for a tablet when my phone cost less than that. $150, on the other hand, was a great price for what it could potentially do in the near future.

    3. "Thrill of the chase" getting something everyone wanted. It's kind of like the rush some people get during Black Friday except I didn't have to wait hours in line or get trampled in a stampede of people. It took me less than a week to get one after the fire sale was announced as opposed to people that have been trying every day for the past month. I just happened to get lucky with my order.

    4. Just a cool tech toy to waste time on since I just graduated from college and have nothing to do at the moment while I'm trying to find a job. I pretty much just play N64, SNES and old DOS games on it when I do use it.

    5. It was $150.

    And yes I bought an iPhone but I had a Windows Mobile phone and Blackberry before that. I didn't get the iPhone until months after the 3G came out and I sold it before the 3GS was released to buy another Blackberry. I got a refurbished iPhone 3G for $99 and I sold it for $200+. Only had the iPhone for a total of 3 months. I stuck to Blackberry for another year after that before switching to an Android phone and haven't looked back since. I don't see how wanting a $150 Android tablet with a dual-core processor, 1 GB of RAM and 32GB of memory makes me a "sheep" but to each his own.

    my wife calls it an iPad, because she knows it torques me when she does it. I even got her a touchpad and a case, because she said she wanted one so badly, and it's STILL in the box a month later. sometimes I wonder aloud when she's going to get her touchpad setup, and she smiles and says "I'll open up MY iPad when I'M ready for it". my wife is just feisty that way, yet somehow manages to be adorable at the same time.

    You have to forgive them. To the general public, iPad is synonymous with tablet. Any pad, they will call an iPad. So even if you tell them it's a Samsung Galaxy 10.2, they'll still consider it an iPad.

    But the whole irony of it is, the iPad isn't even a tablet. Unless you consider the iPod Touch to be a tablet. In which case, it would be.

    PS: This comes from an Apple fan who bought the TouchPad for the low price during firesale and is now truly impressed.

    I have both and the iPad can play mkv files. It can play any file I've thrown at it.

    ^ But where do you put the file? Cause I haven't been able to figure out video on the Touchpad yet.
