Product Reviews (102)
LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!
This product is friggin awesome. The only things I want to see is a way to be able to set the proxy (I need this for work), and more apps that I'm sure will come when developers realize how many people have these now. Its a GREAT product.

This product is great! While I have no exposure to the iPad (which most people seem to prefer due to the large number of apps writen for it), the TouchPad more than meets my needs. webOS is fast and user friendly. And, it's really cool that when the TouchPad is placed on the TouchStone to charge, it will slide-show through any pics you have on the device. If you have no pics loaded, it displays a clock. So it can really become part of your decor while it's charging! Really wish HP hadn't discontinued the webOS hardware. I think with time, and more developers creating apps for it, this tablet really could have commanded the price at which it was originally priced. It was a bit premature to go head to head with Apple right out of the gate. But, as HP has probably seen, there is demand. Bite the bullet up front and take your loses...then as more users buy in, more developers create apps...then up the price. Regardless, if you have an opportunity to purchase one, go for it! Totally cool...and I'm now addicted to Angry Birds :-o

Touchpad was very quick and easy to set up. Very easy for a first time touchpad user to navigate and learn. Really like not having to download or purchase a lot of "apps" to make it do what I want to do. Purchased it for my daughter, very seriously thinking about keeping it for myself and purchasing another one for her!!!

My new TouchPad
I am enjoying this new tablet which compliments the Apple tablet we own. The feel is good and the experience is great. This product has so much potential that WebOS should be maintained for developers to continue to write new apps.
By ManuelM on HPBazaarVoice - Oct 10, 2011
Bought this for my wife. She set it up without my help. Took her some time to navagate the Web OS. This was a good buy. If given another chance I would buy one more.

Great for children
I have been pleased with the product for my own use. What has been exciting is to watch my three grandchildren ages 1, 1 and 2 use it with some early learning games. They even started going up to the TV now and trying to push things to make them move or play a game. I would hope they can become more available to small children and have more apps available for them to learn with.

EXCELLENT PRODUCT. Sorry to see it go. Hope HP re-considers and can see the benefits of continuing to support and manufacture this product. Price the Touchpad about $200 for the 16GB and $250 for the 32GB for the holidays and they will fly off the shelf. More apps would help too. Would love to see netflix design an app for the touchpad.

Not an IPAD killer
Lack of apps limit this product's capabilities. Camera works well, printing is simple. USB connection makes file transfers easy. Great product for the sale price,I would not pay the original introductory price.

Sad to see discontinued
Let me tell you my first impression I bashed HP for creating a subpar unit, minimal support, minimal apps. I bought it becasue we got it for $149 (why not). Once I opened the box fired it up, charged th battery, i was blown away! Faster than any other touch device out there. No touch delays, real time swiping, bootup less that 1-2 seconds!!! I have not fired up my laptop in weeks. I have over 30 apps installed a portion of my music collection, Kindle reader with over 15 books, that were free BTW. These are not junk books either good quality writers. The unit itself is small, lightweight, good looking. The sound system is just as loud if not louder than my laptop speakers. Buttons are ergonomically placed. The battery last 8-10 hours of continuous use, really no lie. The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is that it is now discontinued and wish there were more apps. Hopefully, the developers will continue to make apps, but I am not unhappy with the apps I have.

Decent purchase-especially for the price I got
As you must have guesses, I bought this in the $99 for16 GB and $150 for 32gb frenzy. I am more than satisfied with my purchase. There are some minor disadvantages like: 1. Even a simple technology like Bluetooth is limited to connect with only other WebOS devices and a very limited number of car Bluetooths. I cannot even connect my blackberry tho this. There should be a way to break this. 2. The browser can be improved alot. For example, options like " opening in a new browser" etc can be greatly improved upon.

Web OS needs some love
Once all the background logging is disabled and you tweek webos a little it becomes a great tablet
By Thuey on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 17, 2011
Buggy yet fast
I bought the Touchpad with the clear idea on my mind to use it as a backup tablet to the iPad i own and as a testing platform for things that will surely come to market. I would have never buy it with the original price tag above $500, but for 140, yes. It will be a great video player for my kids, a game platform (if any interesting games shows up), and in the mean time, a communications tablet for me on the Road. The hardware i think it is good, after patching and configuring the machine runs fast and great (overclocking, disabling logs, decreasing brightness, eliminating tap ripple!). Charging without cables, with the cradle, is great! As for the software . . . there the starts start falling from the sky (aka, bad performance). The apps are very simple and have very few functions and configuration options. For example, I cannot print to network printers, i cannot delete the deleted mail from the deleted bin all at once, the software doesn't respond immediately to my tap on the screen, sometimes is a delayed response, others the screen reacts to my tapping, but nothing happens, the software doesn't do what it is supposed to, follow a link, click an option. I don't know if the OS is lost within it's labyrinth or that i has problems dealing with the internet. I use the facebook app. for tablet, and it has very interesting functions and display options, but it is a horrible user experience, 1 out of 3 taps actually do something. and if i'm writing something, an accidental tap anywhere on the screen can make you lose all the writing. I'm afraid to use the tablet for real work, as i might suddenly lose important things because nobody in the developing company took the time to fail proof this things. As for tablet improvement system set up by HP, if i want to look for apps, i have to go to at least TWO places (HP catalog and PreWare Catalog, there might be more) creating a mess of a search. The PreWare site and organization is efficient, open and reliable as a source of apps for the pad. But, if in these so many years that the Pre Phone is available (and for which the main bulk of the apps are for), the catalog of apps is so limited and amateurish, i don't have too much faith that there will be productivity apps for the Touchpad other than the basics (for example, i would not expect a PDF annotation app to show up, or a real note taking app). Overall i would say that i'm OK with the hardware but wouldn't pursue any more devices with the Webos OS, unless it goes through major debugging and years of man-hours of optimizing. This system was sent to the market uncooked. On the other hand, there are thousands of touchpads now out there and people might find interesting to produce for that market. Thanks, ps: in spanish, "Webos" has the same phonetics for the translation of "Eggs", and it is usually used to refer to male genitalia. Bad choice of Name!!!!

Excellent products for business
HP touchpad is an excellent product for business. It is easy to use and can connect to PC an USB device. it is easy to install the applications,connect wifi, and read pdf files. It is prefect choice for business. If HP will provide more applications, it will have a big market. I hope touchpad will have a 3G version and can be developed in the future.

Where are the Android drivers?
I need a source for the Android drivers to optimize my Android port. I'm almost done with a working dual boot port of Android/WebOS.
By Dalbaht on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 12, 2011
good for the money
I got this as a gift from my husband when it went on sale at the cheapy price! I am glad he didn't pay more but really it is worth it. I am enjoying the apps that are available to the Touchpad, but I wish developers would create more. That really is my only gripe...
By HeatherG on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 12, 2011
awesome device. Some lag on certain apps, patches and overclock help. Great homebrew community. hardly use my laptop anymore. love it
By sublime222 on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 12, 2011
I have really enjoyed my Touchpad and use it every day.
By Shirley514 on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 11, 2011
great at the low price.....
With all the other tablets selling for twice or more, this is definitely a great bargain. I do wish there is more apps and better aftermarket support. Although, I think with the # of TPs out there will be a lot more activity/support. I do have a gripe.....why does the TP say "ouch" every time I disconnect it form my computer.....even after it is ejected.
By rayrayz on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 11, 2011
I loved webOS ever since my original pre phone. Webos is the best ui out there. Long live webos!
By rehanja on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 11, 2011
easy to use
Webos is easy to use and addictive. Tablet runs quickly, preware helped. Amazing internet browsing, schype, and social networking.
By jazzyjoesig on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 11, 2011
Best Price Ever
I am sure no any product can beat the price HP TouchPad Wi-Fi offered. I got one but I was surprised to see the amazing things it can do. Multitasking, well that was the greatest features of all. Screen Resolution also looks good. Now I carry it all the time wherever I go. There are already plenty of apps to start with.

I received the Touchpad way after the scheduled delivery date. Upon open up the package, the Touchpad was beyond my imagination. It is good design, fits firmly in my hand and very slick. The downside of this is there are not many apps in the HP store for the Touchpad that I can find useful and the users manual is nowhere to be found. The operating system is easy to use, initial setup is no problem, I had it up and running within 10 minutes. The Touchpad hang on me one time because I did not update the OS to the latest version. I was scared thinking that I bought a junk Touchpad but after searching the internet I knew how to forced reboot it and update to the latest OS version. Since then it runs like a horse, plays video and music as I wanted, and performs all functions as advertised by HP. The sound is unbelievable, awesome if I plug my headphone on. I would buy it again to my family members if I have a chance. Keep up the good work HP.
By Bonbon on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 10, 2011
Hands down there is no better tablet for the price. This tablet clearly is as good as the iPad. Web OS is easy to use and understand. Only hope Web OS is kept up to date.
By RSJH on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 10, 2011
Very happy w/32GB Touchpad. Performance is great, screen response is very quick, WebOS is excellent - finally something to truly rival the iPad. Would like some more apps, but there are plenty of useful ones available. Considering the $450 I saved vs the 32GB iPad...I couldn't be happier!:)
By Pars22 on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 10, 2011
HP Touchpad Craze Began and Ended
Got it for fire sale price (minus $30 for a coupon). So I'm pretty excited about the value this tablet offers. I'll be even more excited when I can dual boot it to Android. CONS WebOS needs lots of tweaks, using Preware, to turn off all sorts of cpu-wasting processes and logging. Easily smudged, but who cares for just over a Benjamin? PROS Great battery life in standby - I get 4 days of light use. Hardware seems like a solid platform for Android. Excited about this. OVERALL It's not as convenient as a computer for surfing. It's not as easy to carry around as a smartphone. But sometimes it fills that niche in between. It will probably find a home on the couch, or in the bathroom. It's like a huge smartphone for dummies.

My Suggestions To Improve
I like my Touch Pad. I also like the webos 3.02 version much better since it improves a lot. I found a few bugs with webos 3.0. But after I used webos doctor to download the webos3.02 these bugs are gone. Thanks. After 10 days of playing on my touch pad, I have following suggestions: 1, I am used to closing each web page by clicking the x button on the right top corner of the web page. But with my touch pad, I have to push the center button to close the page, which is not as convenient. Plus, it may eventually wear out the button since it is the mechanical button. 2, I hope that it will return back to the location where I open a post in a long discussion message board. With touch pad, when I open a post (in a discussion board with many posts one following another), read it, and then click back button on the top left corner, it will return to somewhere else instead of where I open the post. I have to scroll ups and downs to look for where I were before I open the post. Hope Webos 3.03 can improve these issues. Thanks, Sharon

love it, love it. Web's is great. Great product for unbeatable price. Too bad it is going away.
By leoh on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 10, 2011
149.99 for a 32 GB quality touchpad? that's a no brainer
By DoraemonUCR on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 10, 2011
bought it with $150. WebOS is pretty cool. Plz keep it alive!

Good tablet but lack of apps
Good tablet almost as good as Ipad but lack of apps hurts.
By DrRajesh on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 9, 2011
I found this HP Touchpad 32G to be an excellent gadget. I love the design and features provided through the touchpad. Very easy to setup and use. Good battery performance. Here are some drawbacks I found in this touchpad, 1) starting process is kind of slow, 2) cannot process popular files, including word, ppt and pdf (ready only, but I think it is a common problem to similar products), 3) short of convenient application softwares, and 4) no operation system manual. But I still love this product very much. Strongly recommend.
By greenlake on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 9, 2011
I am really enjoying everything my TOUCHPAD has to offer.

Awesome device for 150.00
By tgibbs on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 9, 2011
Never saw a product or worked with a product this great..... Would definately recomend to others. Even though I purchased at the 499.00 price still love it.
By aa350 on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 9, 2011
I love the feel of WebOS and the graphics on the games. I do hope they continue to make apps that will be compatible with this system because I think it outranks all others. I am very happy with my HP touchpad.
By Schooby on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 9, 2011
It is really an excellent slate. I run it at 1.7GHz with overclocking. It is rather fast. The gesture operation is convenient. Of course the multi-task, email, calendar and chat convergence. Most exciting thing is the web browser comes with the flash support. I love it. Some cons: a little heavy, less apps.
By Anonymous on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 9, 2011
I've no idea why HP did a fire-sale for this
The touchpad seems to be a very capable product - it was probably a bad decision to price it at $499, but I'd have bought this for up to $299 and it would have still been worth it. I picked this up for $146.xx. The build quality is excellent, and webOS, though a bit rough on a few edges, is really, really good. I love how all the services are integrated seamlessly together (I think it's called Synergy). If you can find it around, buy it for anything under $300 and you won't regret it.

Touchpad may still, and always, be in beta
I like my touchpad, and I will expect to use it for at least my next 3 years of college, but there are certainly some annoyances. First to all, you must understand that a TouchPad is to an iPad what a $300 HP laptop is to a Macbook. They're not in the same range or category, so they should not be compared directly. Maybe you should compare a TouchPad with an Acer or even chinese tablets running android...maybe. The bad: Browser is mediocre, slow response to several selection of applications and objects (check boxes, reloading apps...) and an overall feeling that this device is still in beta. Also in the bad side, the expected lack of support from HP when the hype and news of webOS go away, and lack of quality apps...but you already knew that. The good: You can read books thru amazon kindle, read pdfs, create and read word documments, and browse the web. For $150, this is really not a bad device, but HP's illusion to market this agains the iPad was just non-sense. I would've probably paid up to $250 for this device, if they would continue to support it and produce it, but definitely not $500 like HP expected. Eduardo.
By TooManyEduardos on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 9, 2011
Its a shame to discontinue
I have used both the iPad and the TouchPad and I am hands down impressed with WebOS. It is a shame that HP just didn't come to market at a better price point that Apple and then market to the enterprise, because they would have cleaned up the Android and iPad in that space. Only thing that is a drawback is the limited app availability. Other than that, a rock solid tablet.
By photomom71 on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 9, 2011
The HP TouchPad Wi-Fi 32GB is an awesome product. I am very please and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a touch pad. It is very lightweight, extremely portable, and the battery charge last much longer than I expected it would.
By MaggieS on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 9, 2011
Best 150 Bucks spent
Worth every penny. Should have bought few more for friends and relatives. Overclock and Preware are a must ;). Enuff said.
By tidieu69 on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 9, 2011
Great Device Crazy pricing
This little device is great it is unfortunate how it was priced too high for the market, and then dropped when it was beginning to draw attention. Too bad HP. Love webOS
By revoman on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 9, 2011
I can't believe this came out only 2 months ago.
The only reason this tablet got 3-stars was because it was $140. If I paid full price for this, I'd return it in an instant. Not only is there a lack of apps, but the UI isn't the greatest either. It can be a little confusing at times. Perhaps the single most disappointing aspect about this device is the lack of a camera. This is the middle of 2011 people. Any tablet device without a camera is going be sub par. All in all, I'm keeping it because my wife can play flash games. I'll never use it. Not over my iPad 1 or my Galaxy Tablet, and especially not over my iPad 2. If its the only thing you can afford, great. Otherwise it's pretty weak.
By Mr12Fingers on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 9, 2011
So glad I was able to get this tablet at a great price so I could try it out and enjoy the conveniences of tablet life! I find it is quickly becoming my go to hardware in my house versus sitting at my desk at my desktop or lugging my laptop around. I love to shop using this tablet as I browse the web and play games while watching tv some nights. Very handy, lightweight, fast and has a long battery life!
By Octoberlee on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 9, 2011
I got my touchpad two weeks ago, I loved it. I would loved it more if we could get more softwares downloaded for free.
By Jasmineyan on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 9, 2011
Was fortunate enough to get one, very pleased with the purchase after a few minor tweaks! Too bad they decided to discontinue the product line.
By Avalanche on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 9, 2011
good product. nice features. but it sometimes stuck at full-screen video. and response time is longer than ipad
By todayfellow on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 9, 2011
HP Touchpad 32GB
I love it. Did I mention that I love it! Its very handy and smooth. I'm sad to see HP has stopped producing them.
By fireballgrl on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 9, 2011
Very Good Product (After Hacks)
This product was a very good purchase. Had you minimized the logging and made other optimizations before the release, this could have been a much better product for you. Honestly, if adobe reader is updated with more features, I think you could still have a very good product on your hands.
By mjgil on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 9, 2011
worth it... For $135
I didn't spend much time with the touchpad pre-patches but after, the speed is great. However, webOS is missing many features... camera ability to organize apps ability to organized bookmarks downloads via web browser don't work cannot connect to wpa2 peap wireless media player cannot play many file formats and probably more that I can't remember at the moment...
By ollie87 on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 9, 2011
Good Deal for 150 bucks
So far so good, like the OS but less apps would have been better if there are few basic apps like banks, amazon and so on..... missing back camera and heavy infrastructure compared to IPAD and other tablets. Overall its a win win deal for 149 bucks something is better than nothing
By Se7en on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 9, 2011
Worth the Money I paid for
Worth the Money I paid for.... Very affordable, fast, and easy to use. Perfect gift for my Mom. Nice compared to cost of IPAD. I WISH I COULD GET 3 MORE FOR MY SIBLINGS.
By BernardG on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 9, 2011
I didn't think I would like a tablet but the 100-150 dollar deal was too good to pass up so I went ahead and purchased the touchpad. It is awesome, and I am sold that tablets might well indeed be the wave of the future for all kinds of applications. The screen sensitivity works great and the viewing angles and color are very good.
By Compguy12345 on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 9, 2011
Thanks for the fancy deal from HP. I've used the pad for a few weeks, and the pad works great. I like the WebOS very much, especially its card view. Switching between apps and closing app is convenient and fun. But it still has room for improvement. For example like scrolling a webpage, if I happen to touch a hyperlink and slide my finger, the page is scrolled but the highlight on the link does not go away.
By Leonay on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 9, 2011
A fantastic bargain. Best tablet deal.
This is an attractive and feature-packed tablet thanks to the incredibly discounted prices. However, also owning a XOOM, a Galaxy Tab 10.1, and an iPad; the lag and UI inconsistencies in webOS are quite apparent. However, the Android port to the TouchPad is gathering steam, and we may see Honeycomb or Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 3.x and 4.x) hitting the TouchPad before the end of the year. As for hardware, the TouchPad isn't too bad. While it is thicker and heavier than any other major tablet, the contoured design helps minimize the unwieldy feel.The glossy and easy-to-scratch plastic finish, however, is a tad disappointing. The dual-core Snapdragon is speedy enough at 1.2 GHz, and most TouchPads are able to handle 1.7 and even 1.9 GHz. However, even at nearly 2 GHz, the OS itself just seems slower than Honeycomb and iOS. Apple's iOS isn't a fair comparison since it can't do true multitasking other than through a few select services. However, since Honeycomb can truly multitask and is much more responsive, there is no reason for webOS to be so laggy. Additionally, there seems to be something funky going on with the touch sensor, as I get loads of missed or mis-registered touch events. They're frustrating because I'm not sure if the device has crashed. For the techies out there, a 1.2 GHz Scorpion (CPU segment of the Snapdragon, based off of ARM's Cortex A8 reference design with a few tweaks such as elements of dynamic execution) is roughly as fast as a 1.0 GHz ARM Cortex A9 (the CPU core in the Apple A5, nVIDIA Tegra 2, Samsung Exynos, etc.) Luckily some patches from PreWare can help fix the lag problem--namely removing the tap-ripple effect. Even still, the software keyboard is almost unusable even with the overclocking and PreWare patches. The auto-correct also leaves A LOT to be desired. I had to disable it in order to have any kind of a decent experience. Issues aside, for fire sale, there is no better tablet bargain. People bought the Nook Color in droves at a significantly higher price point when it was discovered how easily they could be hacked into true Android tablets. Now the TouchPad has a far better screen, far more powerful processor, and has a better form factor at less than half the price. You tell me which is a better value. :p
By willverduzco on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 9, 2011
long live webOS!
webOS is amazing. I bought the touchpad with the idea that I could load android on it. However, webOS is far superior so I've scrapped that plan.
By blobber1 on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 9, 2011
Love the Touchpad but some apps are a little buggy. Also having some sound issues.
By gijello on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 9, 2011
More than expected
High quality screen and multithreading system. Cool

Wow Never Thought Touchpad Was So Good!!
Wow im impressed Before the firesale I would Have thought about buying such a new and untested proudut and operating system at ipad & android prices... This thing runs Great... with some software improvements and a Growing app market... It could be a serious contender.... I would def.. Recommend Getting one if you Can... Web os is Sweet.... Egggggs...
By Touchpaddd on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 9, 2011
loved the fire sale
It's impossible to beat the piece in the touchpads during the fire sale for the features you get. I had to get a couple.
By raiz on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 9, 2011
I bought the $149 32GB Touchpad. I think it's a great little computer but not worth the initial $599 asking price. The "ecosystem" is not well enough developed and with these tablets you are also buying the ecosystem and not just the hardware. Without the apps you can't ask a premium price. Still, even without a robust ecosystem the Touchpad has value for surfing the web, email, playing some games, viewing and editing Office documents, and as a Kindle reader. You can also use it for Skype calling but I haven't tried that. There are some apps for reading news and RSS but there isn't the variety of the other platforms including the Pre phones. Depending on your needs and wants the Touchpad may provide everything you need with the existing app catalog. It does for me and the price was definitely right! Thanks HP!
By Steve1951 on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 9, 2011
I purchased 2. One works exceptionally well and has been a blast to use. The other has had some issues. Regardless, great purchase.
By msgutshall on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 9, 2011
Best tablet in the market
This is one of the best tablet in market due to its unique operating system.
By Shivav on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 9, 2011
The best Tablet ever made! Why stop?
This tablet is great! I use it everywhere - The Web OS is super - multi-tasking is a breeze. It is fast too! The kids watch movies and enjoy games, I use it for news and stocks, and the wife loves facebook on it. Bring this tablet back for an encore! I love it.

Best Bang For The Buck
The touchpad at fire sale prices is the absolute best bang for the buck, just wish I had had the wherewithal to purchase a second one for myself.
By Thirdshop on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 9, 2011
Touchpad is awesome, very solid construction, OS is by a mile much better than android. It s a serious contender to iOS but it just need more apps. Don t understand why HP is killing it, bad move in my opinion...
By GabeUS75 on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 9, 2011
It could be better
Cons: screen is too reflective and not bright enough for outdoor use. Web browser's default fonts are too small and not clear. Need to zoom in all the time but then the screen is not stable and wiggle alot that make me feel like having motion sickness. Pros: fire sales price is right. Webos is cool. Hopefully more apps will be available.
By Fatchances648 on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 8, 2011
I did not expect to like this as much as I did. I'm an iPad 2 owner, and webOS has won me over. The product was well designed and well packaged, and webOS is a dream to use -- the card view and "swipeability" is fantastic. Sure, it could use some more apps, and it'd be nice if the Touchpad had GPS, but I love this thing.
By ItIsoZ on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 8, 2011
Pretty Decent Tablet
Got this tablet during the fire sale and no regrets whatsoever. The speed is decent, not as smooth as an iPad2, but definitely on par with the XOOM and Galaxy Tab 10.1. Hopefully, now there will be more apps produced due to the increased sales.
By jmoralez on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 8, 2011
Nice One to surf and play movie while on travel
By Sugan on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 8, 2011

Sad that they are extinct. I still have Palm Pilots I use. Great operating system. If they let it go, then let it go open source, instead of into oblivion. The Haiku operating system still woorks ( BeOS ). It could easily have sold for $200-$250 and made money on the APPs.

Best deal ever
Best part of it is multi tasking, flash video play which IPAD2 is lagging behind.

HP touchpad simply rocks
I purchased the 32 GB HP Touchpad last month. I'm glad I made the decision to purchase this tablet. It simply rocks. The feature set & the performance are unbelievable. The only thing I miss is the Picasa app. I wish it would be developed pretty soon. Get this if you can. With regards, Jein.

Excellent Tablet, Great OS
I love the hardware. It's shiny, snappy and has a good heft. Feels solid. The OS is fine. I own a Win7 desktop and an Android phone. WebOS works great and multitasks perfectly. Couldn't be happier with the Touchpad. Love it.

worth 100$ but not more than that
No arrow keys on the keyboard. PDF reader is not complete (and not useful at all) No connectivity to external world (Bluetooth client, USB host, hdmi). webOS looks great but largely incomplete. Pinning icons to the desktop is missing. Word prediction for faster typing is much better on Android.

Great Deal for tablet
I got my 32GB hp touchpad for 149$ through hp.com. It's a great deal for a tablet that worth more than 350+. Only issue is webOs doesnt have good collection of apps. hope we get it soon based on the way touchpad got sold out...

I love my TouchPad. It lets me get so many things done all at the same time in an elegant, graceful, and pleasant way. webOS has spoiled me for other mobile platforms. Sure, the hardware could be thinner, the app catalog could have more apps, but overall I am VERY pleased with my purchase and am proud to have pre-ordered one for launch day.

HP Touchpad Rocks
I wouldn't have bought this at the original price but for $150 how could I go wrong. I used to have an original pre and love WebOS. All my programs and settings migrated over with my palm profile. Love this thing. Just wish there were more apps for it.

Firesale - Awesome Tablet at Entry Level Price
I purchased the HP Touchpad on 19 Aug 2011. Pros: Overall, the tablet is very snappy, the display is gorgeous, battery life is amazing, has essential applications such as Kindle and Angry Birds, and the touchscreen is very accurate. Cons: Applications - Limited applications, and now that HP has limitied their endorsement on WebOS, its unlikely to see many developers rushing to this OS. iOS and Android application's are not supported on the device. Software - WebOS is still a bit buggy, application downloads fail, and putting music and movies on the device is difficult (drive mounting issue forces a hard disconnect from your computer to have the Touchpad recognize your music and videos). Front Facing Camera - Simply put, the camera is very disappointing. When video chatting via skype, the video quality is so poor that the other end can hardly make anything out. Additonally, the use of the camera is extremely limited (only video chat). Generally, I'm satisfied with my purhcase, and given the opportunity, I'd buy the HP Touchpad again. I can't help but think that HP cut corners with the camera, but my experience with WebOS has been positive.

wow, I love this device
this review is typed on my touchpad, this device is super for the deal that I got. Web browsing is excellent compare to the acer iconic that I have returned. Not many apps as other devices but I don't need many apps. But sometimes it s lagging, but it doesn't bother me. Love the flash player.fast and beautiful screen too.anyway, I love this device

Entire family enjoying the new toy
We are very happy with look and performance of the touchpad. I also got the case and feels better with the original case.

Great tablet for everyday use
It is absolutely a great tablet for this price. Apps are enough for everyday use. Good touch screen interface. Clear movie play. Will keep it for use as long as the webos system exist. Overall satisfied.

Great product at an Incredible Price
The 32GB TouchPad is my first tablet purchase and I am very impressed with this product. Fast processor (I've upgraded to 1.7Ghz). Vivid colors. The captive screen is very responsive. This was a wedding anniversary present for my wife and she loves it! And to top it all off, the price was UNBEATABLE!!! It's a shame HP is discontinuing the TouchPad.

Keep the Touchpad, keep the Touchpad! I LOVE IT! SOOOO much better than the iPad. SO much better.

worth the $125 I paid
The thing that really bothers me is that it seems the only way Ican ever print from it is to buy another printer. If I could return for that reason I would.
By mike1650 on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 7, 2011
I use it all the time
For the price paid, this is a very nice product. Having an Android phone, I have to notice that Touchpad is a little sluggish sometimes and I miss Netflix.
By andrey on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 7, 2011
Worst purchase ever
the item is not worth spending 150 $ on. I am surprised how people bought it for 500 $. it is slow and doesnt connect to internet/keeps dropping the connection.

HP touchpad review
This is an awesome device. Once logging is set to minimum device performs better.I gave this device 5 stars.I love it and i see a lot of potential in WEBOS.
By Nishant on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 7, 2011
drive is super slow
For the new reduced price of $149 you just can't go wrong. Only issues are total lack of apps... even paid apps. Good luck finding a new browser or a decent media player. Copying files via usb is painfully slow. Only good news is the possiblity of Android OS porting over very soon.

Best Purchase Ever
Hands down the best tablet I've ever used. I cannot fathom why HP did such a poor job with their investment in palm, but this device shows that at least they had some potential at one point. I would have truly loved to own a Pre3 or even a Veer so I could take full advantage of the WebOS ecosystem, but alas it won't happen now. Even on it's own the touchpad smokes the pants off every android tablet I've used and Apple's second go at the tablet market.
By redfury on HPBazaarVoice - Sep 7, 2011
At this point, theres not much to say about the Touchpad. It is awesome at 99 dollars. I like WebOS a lot. I dont think I will move to android even if there is an option. Enough said.
