PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Last week, HP killed its webOS devices unit. Over the weekend, the company slashed the prices on the TouchPad. The result? The TouchPad sold out completely in a matter of hours. This confirms what I've been hearing from friends and family: "I'd love a tablet, but I'm not paying laptop money for one."

...it seems there are tens of millions of people who don't think the iPad is too expensive. We can tell that because Apple has sold over 30 million of them.
Ah, that leaves a mere 6 billion 927 million people...

It turns out there is no such thing as a 'tablet market'.

Just an iPad market.

Let me guess, and there was also only iPod market?...

In order generate the same sort of enthusiastic sales demand that is common place for the iPad you have to sell competing devices at a fifth of the price of an iPad.

Can't wait.
