  • Features WebOS is an interesting beast. It has a lot of cool software options, but not many applications to expand upon it. good
  • Display Standard affair, nothing to write home about. good
  • Battery life It's okay, nothing amazing or terrible. good
  • Ease of use WebOS is surprisingly awesome to use - very simple/intuitive. great!
  • Storage capacity 32 GB is more than enough. great!
  • Design and form factor Pudgy, and finger prints coat the backside. so-so
  • Portability (size / weight) Heavy and thick. so-so
  • Durability Made out of plastic, but seems durable so far. good
Detailed review
I picked up my Touchpad after the "Great Touchpad Firesale of August 2011" and am surprisingly enjoying it. While I do think I will keep my iPad 2, this has become a great device for leaving in my living room/house to use when I need to look something up, find a recipe, or just do some general browsing when I'm not near my computer or iPad.

The software is thoughtfully designed, and the cards are a very cool feature. It's nice to have a tablet that supports Flash.

I'm enjoying it!
