why don't they just sell them at a discounted price so people can up they tech game up... corporate America is backwards scumbags... Supply and demand drop the price and sell low...
i know! i think its because it cost them a lot to produce every one of them, so say its 600$ now, and we want it for $200, but if it cost them $220 to make, theyd lose a ton, but hey HP its better then taking back ALL of them to the warehouse lmao

use my ipad to browse the net, play games (basic, got xbox for 'proper' games), read books.


i don't own a laptop (home pc is a desktop) - my ipad is more portable with a better battery life (and a much smaller charger to carry around) and does everything i'd use a laptop for (including skype, chat programs etc).


i mean i get that people don't -need- to buy them, but once you factor in all the reading i do, i prob use my ipad 2-3 hours a day. haven't regretted the purchase once.

those touch pads are dope i would love one but i refuse to buy one.

its a waste of money.

i got a desktop, laptop, and evo..............wtf i need a ipad for?
That's the thing you don't need it. Comparing laptops to tabs is just fu*king stupid. They're not that similar. I used to think the same way until I actually copped a tablet. In most (not all) cases a tablet is going to have better battery life. Secondly if you travel, a laptop really isn't that ideal for a plane unless you're in first class. I live in Pittsburgh and fly back to LA and Vegas few times a year and my 17 inch laptop isn't really ideal for coach.

To me, Tabs are the ultimate portable device, a little more than the phone and a little less than the laptop. I'd rather watch a movie on a 7 to 10 inch screen than a 4 inch one a drain my battery in the process especially if we're talkin Evos

Don't be ignorant. I have the Acer A500 and the iPad. I love that Acer. Just because you don't know sh*t about them doesn't mean they don't make a quality product. I'll take the Acer A500 or the Asus Transformer over the Xoom or the Galaxy 10.1 any day.

no one is developing for it. I love WebOS actually. It's very slick OS but when I only have 5k apps to choose from and I can get 100K plus on Android and IOS why would I bother?

I work at Staples and i've only seen 2 sold and 1 was to an employee

Dude dropped $800+ with a case and warranty on it, when 3 weeks prior they had a $100 off coupon for all the tablets we sell

I really don't feel like jumping in on this in too much detail but to put it simply:

Anyone can do the hardware, the dual-core tegra cpu + 1 gb of ram is the same across all the units.

The difference is that HP has WebOS (which is nice (designed by Palm), but can't even begin to compete with Android)

The Toshiba Thrive is the only unit that has a removable battery you can replace yourself (like a laptop). That's a HUGE selling point.

The Asus Transformer is 2nd up, it looks sick as fu*k & the add-ons & accessories sh*t on the rest.

The only other features to consider are the full-size USB port (pointless unless you really want it) and microSD expansion (which the Toshiba & Asus both have).

Oh, and with the HP? You have to buy a 99 cent app to use the camera. There is no native camera app out of the box!

I bet some of these people still call iPad users sheep because they don't want to deal with relatively obscure consumer tablets.

The problem is that web os hardware is the reason why webos lacks support from people.

i dont think hardware is the issue anymore, as it was during the pre- days.

the hardware is fine, the poor marketing is the problem. they announced the pre3 half a year ago, and it only NOW came out in europe. its not even dropping in america.

if they released the touchpad at the discounted price AND with the 3.0.2 system update, i guarantee the reviews would have been amazing. instead they released it early, bugged and expensive. bad marketing.
