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."

Tony, that's a little bit exaggerated, no? You might live in US, or maybe other country, where Apple products are very popular. But - the situation might not be the same in EU countries. Here in CZ other brands sold volumes - Cowon (iAudio), Creative, iRiver, to name a few. Owning an iAudio, I would definitely not call it a "fast forgotten junk".

You Apple proponents still have to claim, that anyone is promissing you <your device here> killer in a month, while what others do is - they play a catch-up game. So, enjoy the Apple being the top device innovator, but don't be too nervous, if Apple does not become the world dominator anytime soon :-)
