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."

There isn't even really an iPad market, there's an Apple market. What people wanted was a tablet Mac, what they got was a giant iPod, and Apple fans still flock to the Apple stores in droves to pick up their giant iPods. Then there's the curious-with-a-credit-card-sans-brain like me who bought an iPad 1 around release; I honestly expected more of it.
