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."

Member since:

come on! the ipad is a nice but too expensive "toy"... i'm a programmer and the ipad is too restrictive to let me perform my activities smoothly (launch an IDE, compile, test, running one or more virtual machines, etc.).

I know, I know, it is nice to use one of them, but, apart of the hedonist pleasure using it (though I find its keyboard quite disgusting); I think it is a weaker machine than almost all current laptops.
