Summary: I know, I know, the Touchpad is dead, WebOs is obsolete. Still, I love my Touchpad more than my Ipad. To me, being able to swipe away windows is so much more intuitive than pushing the home button on the ipad. Plus, the white "panda pad" has a 1.5ghz ARM processsor, and with 64gb storage(perfect if windows 8 RT is ever ported since RT requires 16gb). I surf the web, track my microsoft exchange e-mail, read books, watches movies and listen to music.
Excerpt: I have never really been a fan of tablets, but, as I saw that the tablet market was rising, and the average price of tablets were falling rapidly, I decided it might be time to try one out. I filtered out all the expensive ones, such as the iPads, and the Windows Tablets. I thought that I had to go for an android tablet, since they were the cheapest, but they also lacked the certain amount of professional quality, design, and performance I required.
Overall, the HP Touchpad is a great, fun, and interactive tablet everyone must love!

Excerpt: I've had the HP Touchpad for almost a year now and it still never disappointed me. Even though HP's OS operating system for this tablet is not popular, it doesn't mean this tablet will be a disappointment. You can download songs, movies, games, podcasts, etc., just like an Android tablet or an iPad. I usually use this tablet for general purposes like basic web browsing, email checking, etc. The features I liked about the HP Touchpad is the quality touch screen.
Really good value for money. Highly recommend it !

Summary: This product is just excellent ! Too bad that HP ditched such a good product and thanks for the Android dev community (cyanogenmod.com) for breathing new life into this hardware. To be fair to HP, the OS is pretty decent. I got the latest CM nightly and WebOS to dual boot on this and just love it !!!
Summary: When I managed to get one of these (during the 'Fire sale'), I played with it for a while and thought "Nice idea... shame it doesn't really work well". Of course this was due to the fact it still had WebOS on it. I packaged the whole thing up and waited patiently whilst the hackers down at Rootzwiki and XDADevelopers put their thinking caps on and provided a port of Android.
Summary: I only realized how good WebOs and Touchpad is after I switched to Android and after I worked with other tablet products. It takes time to realize that grass is always greener... Shame Touchpads are not available anymore but let's hope WebOs being an open source OS will conquer the world.
