The HP TouchPad is less polished than the iPad, with a smaller range of impressive third-party apps. Yes, it's got features that the iPad lacks, but so do the Android tablets, and they have a bigger app selection, too. quote

If the Pre 3 were out today and if the TouchPad were $100 less we could maybe see giving it a go, if only to root for the underdog. But, as it is, you have to put your heart and two decades worth of Palm obsession ahead of any buying rationale.

The TouchPad would have made a great competitor for the original iPad, but its design, features, and speed put it behind today's crop of tablet heavyweights.

You're stepping on my dreams, HP. The TouchPad is so close, closer than anything else, to being good. But it's also very, very far from it.

Was lucky to purchase in summer of 2011 during the $99 fire-sale. Honestly more of a pain, especially coming from iOS. WebOS had SO much potential, excellent multitasking but nothing to multitask. Hardly any 3rd party support. A sad story in tech...

I really like my TouchPad! I'm actually writing this review from it. I tried WebOS when I first got the tablet, but Android makes it really usable. To be fair, there just were not a lot of tablet designed applications available at launch, and that unfortunately worked against the device. CM7...

The price certainly was a pro for this device. But WebOS leaves much to be desired and tinkering with Android leave less battery life and other hickups. Practically no apps for WebOS and the browser experience is the worst implementation of WebKit ever, with lag and occasional browser resets...
