    samsung rushed out their tablet with a less tablet optimized froyo, hoping Palm does a better job on the Palmpad

    It's impossible to know what the PalmtopaPad with do in the market. My guess is that if HP is true to form, it will have the same return rate of all HP stuff. 3-5%.

    The real story is the iPad return rate. 2% is outstanding. There will not be real competition until people are as satisfied with the competing product as they are with the iPad.

    That's my point. HP has a good track record of meeting customer expectation. If they exceed expectations, it will do well.

    I agree. 2% is completely insignificant, especially with such a large sample. That is better than scientific study parameters. Kudos for Apple for making such a great product. Samsung on the other hand...

    I returned an iPad... to it's store stand after trying it out and deciding it wasn't worth purchasing.

    Turns out the Galaxy Tab has only a 2% return rate.

    Demand for these ipad like devices aren't that big especially one that barely has any useful applicaitons. Palm / HP is in for a surprise. The Galaxy S is probably barely selling, I know I never saw one in NYC and ipad sales are declining,

    I think it is relevant to two things: build quality and does the device meet customer expectations.

    I'll bet you don't have ipad. I don't blame you. I bought my iPad purely for playing around, very expensive toy. But now, I take iPad every where. And actually i use my iPad more than my computer. For computer, I used at work and some game time to time. Ipad has so many useful apps, you wouldn't believe how useful this toy can be.

    Apps that I use the most,
    Manga reader, GoodReader (awsome PDF apps, I got tons of pdf books), Netflix, Air Video (don't need to convert any avi files), instaPaper, and of course email and web browsing. And there's tons of other apps that I use alot.

    Ipad can't replace high end laptop for some of the power user, however this is much better than any sub par laptop on the market.

    No I don't own one and wouldn't want to own one either. I much rather have my cell phone in my pocket than have to chug around with that thing. I honestly see no benefit in owning one. The way I see it my phone can perform the same functions.

    Really? You don't even see one single benefit in owning a tablet?

    I used an ipad and I don't see a single benefit when I have a smartphone. The tablets are too limited, if I really need to use something portable I would much rather use my netbook. Tablets are like oversize smartphones in my opinion.
