    HP TouchPad - Should I really be a rebel?

    Okay, I admit, I'm my own unique snowflake!

    I've decided to go with a HP TouchPad (it's on pre-order) - I've experience with WebOS (on a Palm Pixi) and love it.

    Yes, I know there's very few apps yet - I know it's a risk - but I love the interface.

    I guess this is just a shout out to the universe - we HP TouchPad users are ready to pick up the baton!

    YAY!

    (Ahem)

    No Real answer to that one is there?

    There are all kinds of people in this world and I suppose there are those that try to be different?

    Do you think that you are different or are you just wanting to be noticed?

    Could this be the child inside you?

    Are you excited at what you have just shared with us all?

    Hope you enjoy your new found faith

    I think I'll be happy to look over your shoulder on this one and wait for the feedback...

    Methinks they are taking a big chance here, two years too late many would say.

    WebOS looks cool and I will consider one of these if and when they make it to my little backwater.

    M: What are you rebelling against Johnny?
    J: Those corporate behemoths over there *points*........by buying a product from that corporate behemoth over there.

    Doesn't have the same ring, does it?

    Do you think you will still get a TouchPad based on the reviews...?

    Yes... In fact I did - I'm creating this reply on it. I want to support the operating environment - I think it has amazing potential.

    Thanks - I'd gotten in touch with them shortly after they announced cancellation, and got an email about the promotion - I received my 310 back last week.
