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."

And iPod sales have been declining for several years.


Which doesn't really impact Apple as iPods now account for only 5% of Apple's revenue. The iPod will finally be superseded by another Apple device.

And of course the iPhone and iPad both have iPods built in, I stopped using my iPod when I got an iPhone which is now my iPod.

Meanwhile Apple mostly sells iPod Touch's which are a convenient and popular introduction to the world of iOS devices - it's particularly popular gift for kids and means that when they get their iPhone or iPad they already know how operate iOS devices.
