PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless So, we have the iPad out and about for a while now, doing its thing, most likely selling well. Of course, others want a piece of that pie as well, so we see tablets pop up all over the place, most of which are either ultra-low budget junk or vapourware (how that's Adam coming along, Notion Ink?). Earlier this year, Steve Ballmer proudly held up HP's Windows 7-powered Slate - but then, HP bought Palm, canned the Slate, promised a webOS tablet, and then resurrected the Slate as an enterprise product. Now we have a video of the Windows 7-powered Slate. Let's compare it to Samsung's detailed overview of its Galaxy Tab, and see ever so clearly why HP canned the darn thing in the first place.

Well, that could be any number of things, but few of them actually have anything to do with the quality of the underlying OS.
It's more about the applications available for the OS (yes, those are different issues. The Cobra was(and is) an awesome car. There's fsck-all for parts available for it relative to modern ones, but it's a great car).
You can buy a 1990s Taurus and find near-free parts all day (buy another one with a different problem, as they all have one thing or another dying by now). Doesn't make it a great car compared to other cars.
I just thought 'OSnews' should be able to distinguish better...

EDIT: Mismatched parenthesis.
