It's indeed a shame that HP has discontinued this product. However, the price reductions that have followed mean that as long as you can get your hands on one, they're exceptionally good value for money. The build quality is up there with the iPad2, but now at a fraction of the price. Having had one of these myself, I took it when I went to visit friends, and this review is as a result of me buying them one too! The product is a good size, wth good battery life and a very clear display. Charging the product is easy if you get the optional charging dock - this sets this (and the Pre range of phones) apart from the competition because you don't need to many any physical connections, just rest the device on the charger and forget it. When that happens, various applications can be configured to go into "exhibition mode", so that your photos can be displayed just like a digital photo frame.

Connectivity is taken care of, with WiFi and Bluetooth. Unusually for an American produced product (and unlike some laptops unless the drivers are changed) it has no problem in connecting to WiFi networks using the European range of channels which is a wider spectrum than allowed in the US.

WebOS itself is a brilliant operating system - its future is somewhat uncertain though, due to the recent announcements by HP. It may well be that it's bought by another company and developed further; it may well be that it stays as it is today (and this is a very stable implementation). Alternatively, in time, it's possible that people develop an alternative operating system for this hardware (work on an Android port has already begun).

All in all, this is an excellent product and absolutely no way could I have justified paying nearly £500 for an Apple product equivalent given the relatively limited use/requirements I have for a tablet. This meets them all, and I would thoroughly recommend it.

Review for: HP TouchPad 16GB, Wi-Fi, 9.7in - Glossy Black
The good: The HP TouchPad uses Palm's unique WebOS interface and delivers Adobe Flash-enabled Web browsing, Beats audio enhancement, and impressive compatibility with third-party calendar, messaging, and e-mail services. The bad: The TouchPad has a thick, smudgy design, offers no rear camera or HD video capture, includes a limited app selection, and its unique cards system of multitasking isn't as fully utilized as it could be. ** Android on the HP TouchPad** Those that own the HP TouchPad tablet, will be very happy to know that you can now dual-boot which will allow users to dual-boot CyanogenMod 7 with webOS on their HP TouchPad tablet PC. Android on the TouchPad therefore looks and feels a bit like using an outsized phone; and in fact all the phone and SMS apps and settings are still present in are alpha releases, though of course they’re not functional and easly updated. Since the TouchPad only has a single physical button, the CyanogenMod 7 port adds soft buttons for Home, Back, Search and other features at the bottom of the screen, just like we’re used to seeing on Honeycomb tablets. In practice it’s a neat and usable solution. Overall, while the CyanogenMod 7 front-end is perhaps not as slick as Honeycomb, the TouchPad makes a perfectly good Android tablet. So grab yourself one as these Touchpad and they are now discontinued & hard to get hold of, you can get alot of help from internet forums for this tablet & Anroid tweaks.***Thank you***Ibzy_123...

Great if lack of webOS and HP future supports doesn't bother you.

Im reviewing this with knowledge that the touchpad will at some point have a working android port and people have used preware to get ubuntu linux on it as well, though i haven't tried either yet. That and the firesale on these lead to my buying one and i don't regret it in the least.

My first tablet so was suprised that it was a little heavier than expected but not bad. The screen looks great although both the screen and casing gather fingerprints every easily. It has flash and i watched a couple of youtube videos to test it, seems to work fine and it sounds great with the dre speakers beware that there is reportedly a issue with cracks appearing around them, hopefully mine won't as i won't use them much.
Since webOS is on deaths door at the moment the apps in market are probably limited and most may not get the attention they deserve like updates or touchpad versions as there are a lot of apps that will work but load in the middle of your screen within a mobile phone, so wasnt optimised for touchpad. I will say angry birds hd looks and work great, i have downloaded a few other games and paid for some, all have been pretty entertaining and my mates young nephew was plenty entertained to the point i struggled getting it back even though he had his psp with him :) Glow Hockey, Tanked, Aftermath XHD, Supersonic HD and Ground Effect Pro XHD all went down well, i was pretty hooked with trying to beat hockey on insane best i could do was lose 7-2 lol even so it was fun, i did beat hard though.
The kindle app is nowhere to be found on the marketplace, but have seen people use preware and stuff to get it on. Not a issue for me though.
I wanted something i could read manga on since im a big fan. Manga site loaded fine and and the images looked great, though i did a few times load the next when i was trying scroll down but oh well just practice i guess. The browser could be better my biggest wish though is tabs and there is a paid browser that offers that but apparently you can't change which browser is your main, so the stock browser will be the one loading links from email etc. Personally i would of liked something like Dolphin HD that i have on my phone, but i guess now the only time i will get that is with the android port.
Speaking of my phone which is the samsung galaxy s2, i was easily able to setup tethering, which for those who don't know allows you to share your phone 3g internet through wifi or cable to other devices. In this case i did it using wifi found the network on the touchpad and away i went, sites loaded fine so long as my phone had decent reception. Depending on your network you maybe charged extra to tether or not allowed at all.
You get a free 50gb online storage account to Box to put various files on a nice little plus but you have to get the app yourself it's not installed by default, though you would of thought so since HP arranged for the free accounts.
Accessories i bought and arrived just over a day later were the offical case and the touchstone dock. I love the dock even with the case on, just put it on it vertically and it will charge nothing to to connect directly to your touchpad, for whatever reason it doesn't seem to charge landscape but oh well. A nice touch is being able to press power to unlock and getting a clock to show up which looks nice. The case works fine it does double as a stand, but wish it didn't just flap over the screen.

Little nag is the loading icon you get with certain things.

I like the HP TouchPad, it's fast enough and does most of the basic stuff.

I am interested in communications device, I have a 7" Android 2.2 pad with a "resistive" screen (capacitive screens are better) A DeLL Streak 5" a good device, but Dell has killed off the device, a HTC Desire 2.2 android (phone) and Now the HP TouchPad.
I've had this Touchpad for a couple of weeks now. It's quite a nice device. I paid about 240£ for it, I would have preferred to pay 99$ but that life. It does the basic stuff like email, internet browsing, reading Amazon books(I dont think this is available in the UK But I downloaded the software from a US site). In my opinion the WebOS software works well. As we all know the there is a poor selection of software download available for this device, compared to Android devices or IPads.
I'm hoping that either HP or some other company breaths life into WebOS, alternately I would put Android onto the device just to give me access to multiple applications.
I guess the Kindle Fire, might be a good device that forces other manufacturers to re-think their pricing strategies.

As a cheaper alternative to Apples iPad , you should look no further than the HP Touchpad. Right out of the box , the Touchpad gives an impression of quality. The slightly rounded corners and back fit neatly in the hand and when you first boot up the tablet , and it springs to life , the excellent screen oozes quality of the highest order. I am still baffled why HP decided to announce it was abandoning support for the device a while back , but the subsequent "fire sale" was over in a flash (more like a flash-fire really !?!) as shrewd punters snapped up the vastly-discounted tablets in rapid time , causing HP to do a swift u-turn and restore its faith in the awesomeness that is the touchpad. Anyway , from the vivacious clarity of the 9.7" diagonal screen to the glossy piano black rear , you know you are holding a sturdy , robust quality piece of kit. The single button at the base of the front acts as a multi-task key , with a "spacebar" type launcher used to activate your favourite apps/programs. The touchpad is responsive , fast , accurate .... everything it should be in the modern world , where we demand our devices give us what we want , when we want it. That said , the webOS operating system delivers where it should and the range of apps available is now comprehensive and all-encompassing. It is unlikely that any device will ever rival the Apple dominance for sheer quantity of apps , but i have never been disappointed with what is on offer from the HP market-place , in terms of apps. Add to that the option of using an android OS and opening up to the market place for android apps and you should not be found wanting. The dual speakers on the touchpad deliver a superb full sound particularly when watching movies or listening to music (something which cannot always be said for some Apple devices !) , and if i was pushed to try to come up with a weakness for the HP touchpad , i think my only criticism would be that the boot-up time seems a tad on the slow side .... but then maybe that's just a consequence of my eagerness and enthusiasm to get going !!! Connecting to your home wireless router couldn't be easier - i was up-and-running within minutes (a 3G version of the touchpad WOULD be just amazing , but sadly not an option .... sigh)
Synchronising between various e-mail and social websites is easy , enabling you to access your contact lists smoothly - great for facebook and twitter fanatics alike !! Typing on the touchpad is a joy - made so easy by the responsiveness of the screen.
That said , there are several accessories available to enhance your touchpad experience and the matched case/cover , touchstone holder/charging dock and bluetooth keyboard are well worth investing in.
I may sound biassed , as i am obviously now a huge touchpad convert , but why wouldn't i be , when i have a device every bit as good as an iPad for a fraction of the price ???
All-in-all , an awesome tablet. Totally capable , with a sturdiness and quality feel that is worthy of a much higher price-tag - shop around for the best deal and enjoy your new "toy" whether it be for games , netbooks , movies , social "media-ing" or whatever floats your tablet boat .... but just enjoy your touchpad !!!
