PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Ars Technica is reporting that US Retailer Best Buy has been able to sell less than 10% of the TouchPad tablets that it ordered from HP, and now wants HP to take them back. Similarly, deal-a-day site Woot offered TouchPads at a very aggressive price, and only managed to sell 612 of them. This is for a site that often sells out goofy tech widgets in hours. When the TouchPad was gearing up for release, there seemed to be a fair amount of interest among geeks. Is it just that it hasn't resonated the same way with the general public, or have people just been disappointed once they've put their hands on one?

If you actually want a tablet that can work and play this thing is fantastic.

Dell Inspiron Duo convertible tablet PC

Have you actually used it? I;ve tried a couple tablets with Windows 7 and they are hopeless for touch interaction. Like seriously so bad that I can't imagine who would actually chose to use one over a regular laptop.

Agreed! I have hated every mobile device I've ever touched that had Windows on it.
