    Essential apps to me
    Netflix
    Amazon - Kindle/cloud music/video streaming (I am calling this one app)
    PDF reader that works 100% of the time

    My essential apps would be B&N Nook, Netflix and Google Voice. There currently isn't a tablet that has all these apps. Hopefully the TP will step up and fill that void.

    There is an rdp app. It's called splashtop and I'm using it right now.

    if i tried opening another walmart right next store, i bet i'd fail MUCH harder. i'm MUCH better off opening a Gourmet Grocery Store...

    webOS is differentiated enough to have its own appeal. We haven't stuck around for the apps; we stuck around for the seamless user interface, the home-brew community, and synergy. HP can leverage these differences into substantial market share, so long as they have those CORE apps, that tend to be prerequisites for mobile devices.

    HP needs to show the world that despite the smaller number of apps, i can get as much done using my touchpad and have a better time doing it.

    3g variants have been the thorn in the side of tablet makers. It appears that most users would rather not pay ANOTHER ridiculously priced data bill in addition to the one on their phone.

    I think i speak for plenty when I say a wifi touchpad tethered to my Pre3 makes much more sense.


    I also find HP data pass model to be pretty intriguing. Pay-as-you-go 3G data makes much more sense on a tablet once you consider the amount of time most users will be using them on wifi. For those times when your away from a hotspot, you can get online. But you're not forking out another $30 a month for data you rarely use.

    I'll grant, it is a way to get to your computer, but it requires a server component to be installed on all the machines you want to get to. I manage a quantity of MS servers, and I need an app that talks MS RDP.

    You've Never gonna have "all essential apps" as that is very different from person to person. You need a very wide range because people do a wide variety of things.

    That is a pretty good list for sure.

    My iPad has all three of these apps. I mean, the GV app is the scaled-up iPhone version, but it's still an app.

    I think that's why the 3G variant of the iPad sells so well. It not being binded to a carrier subscription appeals to a lot more than having a subsidized tablet and having a 2-year contract for a data plan. Pay as you go = win.

    i think what most people are neglecting to see is that HP will use sprint for their 3g coverege... so u can extrapolate that and say , sprint will have a tablet.. now for the pre 3 =)
    Want to help design and write an app?
    follow me at Twiiter @ijip
    THANKS~!!

    There's been no indication of that. If you're referring to HP launching a data MVNO that piggyback's off Sprint's network, that means nothing about a Pre 3 or TouchPad being on Sprint's network specifically.

    But it doesn't have Quicken so it wouldn't allow me to leave my laptop and just carry the iPad. I'm hoping the TouchPad will have Quicken.

    I read that and I don't think mr. Facebook realizes that you have no access to files on the browser, meaning no uploading pictures, and no uploading videos. Two major uses of facebook.

    Unfortunately webos will also suffer this problem if it does not include this. It's not a limitation because I was shocked my windows phone could do it, it just means the browser needs to recognize to open pictures or videos. Or even other apps like docs. Internet uploading is a major overlook by tablets...

    I like this idea. I have a wifi iPad, but I'd like 3G sometimes. I'd also like a built in gps that doesn't use constant data. It'd be cool if the plan was tiered like if I use 200mb it's 10 if I exceed that it would jump to 1 gig for 20 and 2 for 30. Or maybe. Like 50mb a dollar so 10 would be 500, idk exact fair rates. But a non subscribed rate would be good. I'm watching touchpad though. Netflix is a major deciding factor.

    The plans are tiered, and as I mentioned above, it's not contractual; you pay for 30 days of access: Apple iPad 2 with Wi-Fi + 3G - AT&T iPad Plans - Wireless from AT&T

    I love Webos but why bother.......
    Earlier on the first page of this thread, there was a mention of iPad apps, and the poster indicated that the Docs to Go Premium was a viewer. Is that true? I had thought that the iPad D2G was a full editing suite? Can you tell us?

    true, but it would be even better if your access didn't expire.
