    @ fixxxer, I don't fully agree on the HW point... remembering the time, when Nokia, SonyEriccson etc. came out with phones - not smartphones yet - haveing FAR better cameras then the Treo's ever had...here in Euope this was the time people were ready to spend more money on phones and a hipe started...but yes this was a failure of Palm...and those phones had better phone - call qualities as the Treo's too.
    BUT webOS is still the far best OS - cause of gesture and real multitask!

    I seriously don't understand why people on here blame the hardware. The Touchpad for instance has fine hardware. Its WebOS that is a clunky bloated mess. Its not optimized at all to run on the hardware and the software that is included is ridiculously old and outdated. Seriously the web browser is a joke compared to other mobile platforms. So don't blame the hardware, its the software that is lacking.

    I think the hw was poorly designed. No sd card, no hdmi out, the speakers on the bottom where they are muffled, a case that develops hairline cracks and a poor camera. Good screen, sound, form factor, processor.

    Overall poorly designed in view of the original asking price.

    Can't agree, considering how well webOS runs on my Pre 3.

    I don't think the Touchpad hardware (at least, CPU wise) is bad, nor do I think it's performance is the main reason it failed. I do think it's too heavy, needed an sd card and hdmi out, and another camera.

    The Pre's (prior to the Pre 3) I do think had serious hardware problems, particularly Pre-/Pre+ and Pixi.

    Heck no dude!!!! I love webOS! HP screwed us and themselves over by dropping webOS and droping the Touchapd! The touchpad could have been number 2 to the iPad! They just needed more app developers! I love webOS and i love the Touchpad but right now I hate HP! I hope someone from HP reads this and brings this point to their managers. There was no reason to drop webOS and the touchpad! They were graet!

    I agree on the HW, if they would have made it a real special TP, other than the others it would have been more... but from the begining, they had the same Palm attitude, do less than the others - to come into this market they would have had to cut down their margins and do something for the people, SD card, 3G from the beginning, back-camera, HDMI output... but the heck, they anyway stoped.
