I've been a huge advocate for WebOS since its inception. My Wife and I both had pre's. The hardware was the big draw back. We have since switched to Android. We enjoy the Android platform, but WebOS was simply far more gratifying in the UI operation.

As you have probably found out already, the multitasking is second to none. Everything is so fluid. We also became fond of the card system. Swiping cards back and forth to return to menus and apps. Then flicking them away to end the app. The notification bar is awesome as well. It is so intuitive. There is nothing to hate about WebOS except the lack of apps. However, we discovered that most of the apps were very useful.

I had hoped HP would have capitalized on the hardware. Software developers didn't seem overly excited in supporting WebOS due to the insignificant changes of the hardware designs. I truly believe WebOS would shine on a tablet. I hope I am correct. Your purchase of the Touchpad, interests my curiosity. Please keep the updates coming.
