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."

I'd agree that the different form factors are better suited to different use cases. Personally, I'd still like to explore the true potential in the hardware rather than have it limited by some manufacturer's vision of what I want to run and what interface I want to control it.

In this specific thread, the comparisons are in reponse to the original claim that anything done on a tablet chassis (specifically; ipad) will be a more pleasent experience than a clamshell chassis. The original claimant sais; "they do the same and this one is better always." The respondents; "a tablet is good for this type of use, a clamshell is good for this type of use."
