Certainly the TouchPad is a slick machine, and seeing flash animation on a tablet was dazzling, but, while the ads and specs for it mention you need WebOS 2 for Touch-to-Share to work, they do NOT make it clear that this applies to SMS as well. Looking again at all the ads there is no indication that I wouldn't be able to use SMS with my Palm Pre Plus. Only after I discovered this was I directed to a knowledge base article explaining why. I also thought I wouldn't mind the relative dearth of apps since I don't need a lot myself, but I was also advised that Citrix Receiver was finally available for WebOS, only to find it is a "tech preview," version 0.0.2, which does not work. I have remained loyal to Palm, starting with an M105 last century, and have consistently bought HP products over the years as well. But because of the above, I have no reason to own a TouchPad and returned it. Maybe if get a Pre3 some day and HP gets a more robust app catalog for business users, I'll buy one again.

What can I say, I have two other android tablets (both running Android 3.0) that I used for various things. The HP Touchpad with WebOS isn't as good as an iPad or Android 3.0 based tablet, but it is still pretty nice to use from time to time. With a better market for applications for the HP Touchpad it could have better potential than most would expect. As for speed and performance, it is rather comparable to my android tablets and other than a few random resets/restarts it works great. For those who are new to tablets or not that tech savy, the HP Touchpad would be great for them, but for more intermediate to advance users, an iPad or Android based tablet would be more suitable as it doesn't quite have the apps that these tablets do. The Good: Quick and very responsive Easy to use with a slight learning curve The Bad: Not enough decent applications availabe on the market like the App Store or Android Market have available. Thick and bulky compared to other tablets.

A Mixed Bag

By Anonymous

from Chicago, IL

Comments about HP TouchPad 9.7-Inch 16GB Tablet PC:

Comparing the Touchpad to any other tablet on the market is completely unfair considering the vast divide in development for the operating systems. Simply put, WebOS does not have the market that either the iPad or even the Android tablets do, and this limitation in app selection severely hinders the utility of the product. That said, this product still has a mixed bag of positives and negatives and I would recommend it with a caveat. On a positive note, WebOS has potential to be a very intuitive and useful tablet operating system. The syncing across separate systems for email and messaging are fantastic and are extremely impressive. The tablet is also well put together; although plastic and a finger print magnet, I feel it holds its own against earlier generation tablets and the screen has fantastic viewing angles. However, considering the competition, the performance on this tablet is seriously lacking. General application usage is slower than what might be expected, and the browser falls well behind the standards available on other competing operating systems. My other smart devices that are much less impressive on a spec sheet will handily outperform this tablet for the majority of what I desire to do (web browser, email, messaging). All said, I don't regret the purchase and would recommend the product at the sale price I received. However, in competing terms, this tablet does not fare well against the iPad or Android in a number of aspects. Although WebOS does have many strong points and the tablet feels solid, it simply isn't worth investing in a lagging ecosystem and sluggish performance.

Price is Right but lack performance

By Seizure

from Undisclosed

Comments about HP TouchPad 9.7-Inch 16GB Tablet PC:

This HP Touchpad is my very first tablet, although I've played with others before through friends and family members. When I first received the Touchpad, I already knew to upgrade to the latest firmware for faster and more reliable performance. The product wasn't bad out-of-the-box, but it was definitely lacking behind competitors. It was also heavier than other tablets out there. Even after all the firmware updates, my Touchpad was still sluggish. Internet browser took longer then expected to load; pictures imported from Facebook was arranged in reverse order without the possibility to re-sort. WiFi connected fine on my home router, but every time I brought the Touchpad out of sleep mode, its WiFi stopped functioning (even though it said it was still connected to my router.) I had to manually disable and then enable my WiFi connection in order for my internet to load again. And of course, all the browser pages I had viewed before going into sleep mode were lost. The biggest mystery of the Touchpad to me is the lack of cursor keys on the keyboard. Even as I was typing this review on my Touchpad and needed to edit my paragraph, I had to touch the exact spot on the screen in order to edit my text. How inconvenient. All of these issues were known to the HP development team. Hopefully there will be improvements on the next firmware release.

Comments about HP TouchPad 9.7-Inch 16GB Tablet PC:

This is the best product that HP ever made by a mile... it's just too bad that they never gave it a shot. Let's hope that they spin off the hardware portion and license the webOS back to the group quickly to get more of these out there. Final Word: A deal at three times the price. Get it!

I wish they had patience

By UriBraun

from Cambridge, MA

Comments about HP TouchPad 9.7-Inch 16GB Tablet PC:

This product suffers from four shortfalls. 1. No patience by management 2. Young app community -- not enough apps yet 3. No GPS 4. No camera app That said, most companies would be jealous to be in this position. The lack of GPS is the only thing that would require a new device. The lack of a camera app should be an easy fix. Apps were being developed, especially considering HP's strategy on the software front. Now for the strengths: 1. Battery life 2. Slick look 3. Can access it as a network mounted drive 4. Hackable 5. Color ereader 6. Mostly intuitive UI 7. Touch keyboard with numbers 8. Phone shows ALL contacts (Skype, phone etc.) 9. Can tether to phone for calls Note: it take a minute or so to get used to closing apps by sliding them off the top. Suggestions: 1. Keep making them 2. Add GPS 3. Provide a camera app 4. Allow categorization of apps -- three panels is weak give me folders, labels or something 5. Allow contact filter to select users that are online 6. Add close app to the menu 7. Provide a pdf app that allows annotating the document 8. Do something with the desktop -- let me customize it somehow. It's empty and waiting for innovation. Overall, I'm impressed with how fast this has achieved so much. A bit of a patience might get this product somewhere.

I'd take several

Comments about HP TouchPad 9.7-Inch 16GB Tablet PC:

I actually liked the touchpad. My disappointment was twofold: I wanted a spread sheet resident in the operating system and I found too few apps sthat I wanted. I'd take several at the new price!

Excellent product, fantastic price!

By Shluzen

Comments about HP TouchPad 9.7-Inch 16GB Tablet PC:

This is quite possibly the deal of the century! The TouchPad is an incredible product, and could easily be used in the place of a notebook for many tasks. It has the potential to be THE best tablet on the market, all it needs is a few software updates/tweaks, and it'll be perfect. Other than that, for the price, and for how good it is already, it's hard not to recommend this. Grab one, it's second-to-none in terms of e-mail, web browsing, and social communications.

sweet piece of technology

By etoyguy

Comments about HP TouchPad 9.7-Inch 16GB Tablet PC:

Once unwrapped this black beauty is a sight to behold. Love the WebOS interface, nicely done and I think it is a step up from iPad. Auto backup is a very nice feature as I don’t have to worry about syncing with PC. Excellent audio quality. Love the notification feature and mutli processing which allows me to quickly move between apps or documents. I found performance to be a bit sluggishness a times which after installing the latest update and disabling logs (googled touchpad performance) is almost nonexistent with a much fluid touch response. Would have loved to see what HP can do with the next iteration of WebOS and TouchPad.

Good hardware, software needs tweaks.

By vcarl

from Undisclosed

Comments about HP TouchPad 9.7-Inch 16GB Tablet PC:

Everything is feature rich and useful, but there's an uncomfortable amount of lag when doing some tasks. I found that rotating the Touchpad frequently caused whatever app I was in to lock up for a few seconds (2-4). Additionally, I've now had the messenger app lock up in excess of 10 seconds two or three times now, and the calendar app is noticeably slow to change views. Overall I'm pleased with the tablet, but there are a few minor software kinks to be worked out. Hopefully these issues will be addressed in incoming patches, because WebOS is the most satisfying OS I've used in a mobile device.
