They are looking to leave the platform anyway, so what choices do they have? IPad or an Android tablet.

The Touchpad is an Android tablet, that also runs webOS + Ubuntu chroot, and is built much better than the Chinese crap that goes for the same price new as a used Touchpad.

So it's not about trying to lure away happy Playbook users.. it's about those who are ready to dump the platform and look elsewhere. Plus, webOS would be a logical choice for playbook users due to some UI similarities...
