    I'm not in the market for a tablet, so I haven't been comparing models or anything...just a fan of WebOS. I read a review somewhere yesterday of the TP which mentioned a few of the biggest holes for the TP so far and the top of the list was the lack of document editing (Quick Office I guess?). Anyway, this made me wonder why HP can't address this. Prior to the acquisition of Palm I never really kept up much with HP, but I recall reading at that time that they are (or were) the largest technology company in the world. Since this lack of document editing seems to be a problem for quite a few people, why can't HP just PAY to have a Quick Office app developed for WebOS? I know they'd like for developers to want to develop for WebOS on their own, but if they could pay to have a few of the more glaringly absent apps to be developed for WebOS, that could start the ball rolling on more sales and in turn generating more developer interest. I don't know...makes sense to me.

    ...and this isn't a criticism of WebOS or the TP for not having document editing. I guess I'm just curious why HP doesn't throw a little more of their weight around if this is a feature that many people want (and it seems to be).

    We don't know whether or not HP has already paid QuickOffice to develop a full app. Since Quickoffice says that the update will be free of charge for TouchPad users, one can make some assumptions.

    According to the QuickOffice website:

    We are working hard to deliver a version of Quickoffice for webOS which supports document editing. For TouchPad users, this will be a free-of-charge update via the App Catalog. For Smartphone users, this will be a paid upgrade, also available via the App Catalog.

    Well, that was an easy answer. That's why I love this forum.

    Let's hope this doesn't turn into another Dataviz DocsToGo debacle like we had on the older webOS devices. I would really like to have document editing on the TP.
