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."

30 million isn't that much, considering the hype and the calls for the death of the desktop. It's comparable to the number of Linux users.

Yes it is comparable to the number of Linux users but Linux has been around for 20 years and the iPad 17 months.

Yeah and the rumor is that they will sell 22 million over holidays. This rate is faster then Apple sold iPods when they were at this point. And we know what happened with that. There are iPods and then everything else.
