its a tablet aimed at the corporate market aimed to fit in with Windows environments, not consumers which I'm guessing is why its not so "sexy"

Not 'everyone' is as bitter and twisted as you

you're entitled to your opinion, but don't lump me in with "everyone"

To be honest I really like the way they've done the notebook-tablet-combination with the connectors on it's touchstone. I wouldn't care about such a weight as I am happy with the weight of the TouchPad for all the time.

Why would there be a USB port on a tablet? They are already going to sell a smart case with it that has 2 usb 1 hdmi out and optional external battery

guessing it will rely heavily on EAS services, most of the data will be stored on the network and synced to device.

Even the PCs at my work are all based around network drives and EAS. My C drive is a 148 gig drive, I have access to TBs of storage on the network, SOP for enterprise use.

What irks me the most about this is not that it's running windows 8 and not webOS.

I'm coming to realize (to be honest have already realized but refusing to believe it) that webOS as we have all known it is dead. At least for the reasons that I came to love it.

No what irks me the most is the effort hp put into the hardware of this product as opposed to the touch pad hardwar... The latter was a half *** effort of a reject android hardware that was changed to run WEBOS.

I cannot emphasize how much I hate hp. I know it's just a company and webOS is just an operating system and life goes on but hp just leaves a terrible taste in my mouth.

Truly shows the stupidity of HP, what a joke this company of HP really is to skip such crucial functionality that users could take advantage when using Windows 8. Again shows what kind of leadership runs HP, incompetent ones.... Sad for WebOS that still at the hands of HP

101 reasons to hate HP even more...lol

Im gonna disagree with you on the touchpad. I think it was a great tablet at the time. Still use mine everyday. Think webOS was great on it, and am happy they made it even if for a brief point in time. I feel price was the only real problem with the touchpad. I believe it would have been a hit if priced reasonably. Using it to type this right now!

Unsure which basket to move their eggs, from desktop hardware to mobile hardware to cloud services, they dropped a bunch, including Palm's good reputation which they just paid handsomely for.

Meg's recovery plan apparently was to throw WebOS under the bus, in favor of Win8. With the constant barrage of attacks on IE and Apple and Android's marketplace domination, MS did not need competition from the ONLY OS WITH THE STYLE AND EASE THAT COULD HAVE FINALLY REPLACED WINDOWS AS THE 'STANDARD FOR THE MASSES', webOS!!!

lol

so - Microsoft had HP kill webOS - because webOS 4.0 would have killed Win8 and freed us from Windows forever!


HP = ache pee!
