      It’s too bad because from my limited experience with WebOS, although not on the Touchpad, it is a pretty nice OS and a legit competitor to iOS with fewer oddities than Android.

        it is a nice OS.

          It’s slow as s***. Click……wait five seconds…… app finally shows up. And that is just for the webbrowser.

            I was at our neighbourhood Costco last Sunday and noticed a large stack of HP tablets. There were exactly 2 unfilled slots in the rectangular prism, clearly showing how many the store had sold as of Sunday afternoon. (in fairness, I don’t know when they first became available for sale). I fear that HP tablet sales are off to a very slow start, to say the least.

    I would rather be interested in reading Steve Jobs UNauthorized biography.
