PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Palm HP has finally officially announced the release of the TouchPad! Sadly though, it will only see a phased roll-out over the remainder of the year, and the number of countries actually getting the TouchPad is remarkably limited. Somewhat of a downer, really.

These look nice, but with an Android phone, I'd have to go with an Android tablet. I imagine others will think the same, be they iPhone or Android users. So, I think they might be too late. Thom, why would you even want to pair a Windows phone with a WebOS tablet? You'd have to buy apps twice etc.

Actually, nothing could be further from the truth in my case. Since I have an Android phone, I am seriously considering an iPad when the next one comes out. That way, I have access to apps in both ecosystems.

That being said though, I have little to know interest in this HP tablet. A co-worker of mine who is a webos fan recently migrated over to Android, mainly because of poor app selection on webos. That doesn't give me much hope for a tablet version, but I guess we'll see.

On the other hand, if you use a lot of paid apps, that's not the most economical choice. If you have an iPhone, you can use all the apps you've already paid for on your iPad. If you get an Android or WebOS tablet, you'll have to buy your apps again, unless the app maker arranges for a "competitive upgrade" or something like that.
