    Nothing yet in terms of updates. I wonder if we will see anything today since it is already afternoon here on the left coast.

    I was looking forward to the movie store and kindle.

    I've been waiting for this thread!!

    Yes, I too am expecting Movie Store at very least, as promised. Their delivering on promise today will weigh heavily on my future decision to stay in their ecosystem.

    Did they specifically say on the 17th the update will come out or did they say shortly after the 17th.

    ive been waiting for this thread too. ***! I'm not happy so far. I was really hoping for 2.2 on my veer as well...

    I wouldn't hold your breath. They may be stepping up advertising today, but that doesn't mean they are ready to deliver the first OTA update.

    TIMN: Will that be available by the 17th?

    Jon: No.

    Stephen: Some elements will be available, improvements to our movie store, the Kindle app… but the OTA is planned for the end of the month


    Kindle and Movie Store today. That statement will be hard to wiggle out of.

    Yes..and they also had a couple of other pressing item they needed to add to the OTA, so that could bump it out slightly. And I also thought it was 'after the 17th' and not a hard date. Meh... dunno.

    Edit: ^^what Jonesey said.

    Seriously? A brand new OS that is only a couple of weeks into its release and you are only giving it one more day? News articles released around July 14th stated that the OTA update may come in as little as 10 days but could be as late as the end of this month. So far I am really enjoying using my TouchPad and Am waiting patiently for the updates.

    I figure, dont cry "liars" until midnight in Sunnydale.

    personally, I have till the 25th to decide since that's when my 30 days with AT&T are up.

    Yes, I switched carriers to get a Veer. Which I love. But it all hinges on the ecosystem working, meaning TP with needed (not to mention advertised) functionality. That includes TTS.

    Don't cry "liars" at all. I don't think we can take another round of waaaaaambulance sirens.

    1. Let's not exaggerate, webOS is not brand new. And Enyo was announced and displayed on this hardware 6 months ago.

    2. The Veer runs 2.x, not Enyo, so its update can't use the TP's excuse. And again, TTS and SMS were shown on the Veer on HP's site since Feb.

    Don't misunderstand, I too am enjoying the TP and i'm a webOS fanatic. But I can't be blind to missing functionality that I need today, and due to return policies I am forced to make a decision very soon.

    sorry, don't mean to sound bitter... Perhaps you can suggest another term? I just think that this statement was made so recently that they should have known by then whether it was actually going to happen or not. And if not, and they said so anyway, it makes me question the company overall.

    Now you see why Rubenstein was given a "sideways" promotion: the CEO has been burned twice by webOS. First: "gone are the days when we announce a new device but it doesn't come out for months". Second: "we aren't releasing a device that isn't perfect".

    Gotta think that Jon wasn't communicating with the higher ups... Now, he can work on the production side and his boss can take the heat.
    Palm III -> Palm m500 -> Zire 71 -> Zire 72 -> Treo 700p -> Palm Pre Minus -> TWO Touchpads 16gb -. and unfortunately, a Motorola Photon 4G...

    HP never promissed updates fot 17th. This date was marked as official TP marketing push. OS updates are annonced for end of the month.
    Veer updates are never mentioned, and after Jon's interview with Josh I wouldn't hold my breath.

    We just have to stop taking everything so literally. When they said that today is a "hard launch" that was in the context of advertising and promotion. Not an iron clad guarantee that the first launch activity this morning was going to be a global release of an OTA bug fix.

    BTW, the TouchPad is all over the BestBuy main page today. Probably 30% of the page, including the banner ad, top-left special, and video feature.

    I'm not referring to an update, but to his clear statement I quoted above that Movie store and Kindle app will be available by the 17th.

    The way I read things, it was 10 days after the 17th that the update was scheduled for.

    I spent alot of time in BB today, and the tablet displays were devoid of people. The aisle with the laptops was humming with activity with mom and dads with their children shopping for laptops. Back to school I assume. I was all alone playing with all the tablets...Xoom, Touchpad, Galaxy, iPad2..etc.

    I didn't notice anything different with today being th 17th and the big launch Dewitt expressed.
