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.

I bought the 32GB model when it was selling for $150 dollars. At first, I wasn't a fan of the WebOS. I'm android lover. However, the swipe and toss features of WebOS is outstanding. I hope Android systems can adopt this feature. The tablet in general is nice and sleek. Very decent for the price....

I have android on it to make it usable. I am mostly an IOS person but wanted something in the android universe so I could compare the eco system for myself. The UI is not intuitive. You can only learn from trial and error being new to the OS. The touchpad itself is great and has wonderful specs.

the "i-Pad KILLER" - and it fits the bill! an awesome device which is now capable of running Android ICS 4 and thereby extending its features and capabilities much more. Fluid design and user-experience in webOS coupled with amazing hardware.

I am very satisfied with the machine. It does everything I need it to do. WEB os is great. I only wish HP hadn't thrown in the towel so soon, leaving us with an orphan.

The HP Touchpad with webOS is the perfect ultra portable with a brilliant operating system. Utilising many of the same parts as the iPad 2 this tablet is marred by is construction in plastic and the fact that it is slightly too heavy to hold compared with comparable tablets. A rear facing camera...

The HP Touchpad, after being discontinued, is worth the $99-$149 price tag. It's not an iPad and hopefully potential buyers realize that. App support is pitiful and webOS is nowhere near as fluid and smooth as iOS or Android, for that matter. But it makes up for that with ingenious design and an...
