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.

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.

The TouchPad is a fantastic device. It's fast, smooth, and literally fun to use -- cards are easy and enjoyable to swipe around and navigate with. Email/calendar/browser (with flash) are all great. It's not perfect: it could be thinner, and even though it has quite a few apps already it could...
