    Isn't it a little hard to work on the TouchPad 2 when the TouchPad one OS isn't even at a beta level where people can do a thorough hands-on?

    Seems like HP might be better off getting those Touchpad 2 engineers to help out the version 1 guys finish up.

    I see someone mentioned it a couple of pages ago but I'll simply agree - HDMI out at 1080p is going to be one of the things that people find a lot of use for and the Touchpad has no answer to (unless I misread the spec?).

    That's all Apple needed.

    They've just completely smoked HP. Seriously, if the Touchpad comes in @ anything other than $399 for the WiFi version, it's as dead as a doornail.

    You cannot, in this day and age, have some huge media event, and then turn around and not launch the product for 4-6 months.

    Anyone other than the WebOS crack smokers on this forum have completely forgotten about WebOS and the Touchpad the minute that Jobs stepped on that stage.

    HP is never going to be competitive with Apple. They don't have the ability to bring a product to market in a timely fashion. They don't have the ability to build a ecosystem. They do not have the ability to release a product that's competitively priced with Apple.

    I had hopes that HP might, despite my logical thoughts to the contrary, reinvigorate WebOS, and actually make something out of their acquisition.

    Turns out, that acquisition is nothing but a line item on a balance sheet, another doomed HP initiative that will be forgotten in 24 months.

    No way! Damn you, Apple. I don't want a tablet, but as a virtual guitar amp/mobile music station, it might be worth it.

    Now that the last gens are just $399, I might be able to pick up a used one for $350 or maybe even $299 in a few months.

    Now Apple, the LIED. Flat out were COMPLETELY DISHONEST about that fact.

    The fact that I'd get flamed for stating truth (at least the first part of my post) on a forum for a better, competing product just goes to show how easily Apple can sway iSheeple. They'll never take me alive. Why? Because I get it.
    I get it as well, dude.

    I've never owned an Apple product, and I never will.

    I really don't understand the sheep mentality or why everyone gets their panties in a knot over Apple products.

    Their marketing or products have never made me think twice.

    Nothing that comes out of them is a revolution in my eyes

    I don't either. However, on the tablet front, they have a great product, lower priced than the rest of the competition, and it's shipping in a week and a half.

    Who care. Ipad2 is available next week and we don't even know when touchpad will come out. And any apps?

    Maybe hp should say touchpad can browse Internet faster that ipad2 since that all it can do right now.

    Has WebOS 3.0 even caught up to iOS on the iPad 1 in terms of speed yet, tho?

    It's a universal app so I guess you could use it on an iPod touch if you're reeeeeeeally not looking to buy a tablet. I'd imagine it would be pretty nasty to use on a 3.5" screen though.

    Actually, I just looked at the Apple Store and they have refurb 16 gigs for $350.

    If you have an issue with a mod's decision, you should contact them privately and discuss it. Not post about it.

    Because Apple IS NOT reacting, they are planning.

    They didn't just come up with all these additional features or re-engineering of iPad2 in the two months since competitors began being announced.

    They had a plan, predicted what the market would want, and threw themselves into making it happen.

    They committed over $3BILLION is in their predictions. That's called "total buy in."

    It has not always worked for them - as people love to point out, they've had many failures. But they go big with their belief on where the market goes.


    In contrast, the competitors ARE "reacting" and we're seeing what that does.

    It is also available right now. This is why Apple is successful.
    You know what's funny about that thinner selling points. Looking at the two designs it seems like they intentionally made the first iPad thicker so they could use "thinner" as a selling point for the iPad 2 this year...

    Its not the sheep mentality, I was just like you till i got a imac,I was a PC guy since the IBM 286 back in the day, till i tried the iMac, and my wife hated it till she learned how to use it, now she says it is way better then Windows and I agree, dude dont knock till you try it. Apple does not make any revolutionary product but what they do is simplify them and that is the nitch. People love simple, K.I.S.S ( Keep It Simple Stupid ) Apple thoughts and it is there market. People dont want to think they want to open productand go to work thats it nothing more or else.

    That's an interesting theory. If that's true, what do you think HP's excuse for the TouchPad being the same thickness as last year's iPad?

    The sad fact is I'd pay probably close to $1000 for a tablet that had WebOS as the baseline OS but had the iPad2's build, ecosystem, and app catalog.

    Seriously, its so hard to get past the iOS, especially on a tablet. All that screen real-estate and you just got the boring ugly row of Icons. I love the size and scope of their app calatog. I absolutely am envious of the ecosystem and ability of it with itunes, airplay, etc. The metal body instead of plastic while remaining even lighter than its competitors and thin is great. The screens are beautiful and cameras are done right. But their OS just drives me bonkers with inelegant multi-tasking, crappy notifications, and just ugly and useless main screen.

    Its just hard to justify waiting 3 to 5 more months, potentially spending more money, and having less apps, less of an ecosystem, less accessories, and lower build quality to purchase something simply becuase it has a superior base OS.
