I have been with webos from the beginning. When the original pre came out I spent $500 off contract to get one. I have brought every webos phone besides the pre 2 and 3! but now I need your opinion because I have 2 hp touchpads and 2 veers so i was thinking about selling a veer and a touchpad the only issue is my dad took one of my touchpads so I'm down to one and i was considering getting Microsoft surface and wait until open webos gets back into the mobile market

Go without using the Touchpad for a month and then decide if you miss it...

same here, each time i grab a touchpad the battery is empty, but my 2 year old Ipad keeps battery at least 5 times longer

webos is a great OS, but it lags on the hardware it runs on, maybe indeed one year further we will have better choices and run it on a samsung or similar thing

Get a Touchstone charger for the TP - I had an ipad for a while instead, but I missed the Touchstone and the pairing with my phone, so went back.

i just got a refurbished TouchPad Touchstone off ebay US (looked like unused,even had original foil on it) and i'm quite impressed. It even charges through original TouchPad sleve.

btw. HP/Palm made all right by designing the charger for TouchPad exactly the same diameter as original Pre charger so my twist-off adapter for EU fits on those US charger models

oddly enough, it is good for use as a phone... strong speakerphone, etc.

I love the keyboard and the finger swipes & the cards & all that ...but I hate the lack of descent predictie text, no ip camera view app, the half dead app offerings, the hardware that ages, & such...

I will sorely miss this fone when it goes ...

I have about 3-4 Zire 71 and several Lifedrives on my desk... my wife still uses her Lifedrive and TX...

*sigh* I do miss using them myself, and miss some of the apps/games, but I just can't justify carrying my old Lifedrive and Zire when my Pre3 does everything and more (aside those games that I miss), or my Touchpad for it's larger screen when needed.
