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."

The iPad is kicking away the last legs that the sclerotic PC makers were leaning on. HP' departure won't be the last.


Sorry, but Lenovo begs to differ.

This wasn't hard to find but, for instance, from: http://www.techcentral.ie/article.aspx?id=17271

"Lenovo profits nearly double
Becomes third largest PC maker"

The Chinese company reported that both desktop PC and laptop shipments for the quarter increased by 23% from the same period last year.

Dying, indeed.

Or should we count the iPads as PCs just to make Steve & Co. happy?
