HP TouchPad Wi-Fi 32 GB 9.7-inch Tablet Computer
So I preordered this HP TouchPad Wi-Fi 32 GB 9.7-inch Tablet Computer.
I am using a Pre, and I am a fan of WebOS.
This webOS smartphone keeps me enjoying the WebOS because of its incredible multitasking.
I also had a Droid based smartphone, an EVO 4G, actually in a brief time, but I really like the UI of my WebOS based Pre in many ways.
This Operating system makes everything operates smooth, you will not find any stuttering when you change screen or pages.
HP TouchPad vs iPad?
First of all, HP WebOS TouchPad is not an iPad, it is a different tablet.
When Apple released the iPad 2, I bought one at launch without ever purchasing any Apple devices before, and I really enjoyed the iPad because of the apps account, compared with WebOS.
WebOS Operating System is really nice, but there are ultimately limited apps.
HP definitely needs to improve the apps development, or else, the HP TouchPad tablet will fail, eventhough it is no doubt an amazing tablet.
If you are not a fan of the “iGod” devices, you will have to admit that Apple iPad 2 still beats other tablets because of its applications.
iPad’s apps are worth your money, simply said.
Now, there is one thing that you will love about HP TouchPad tablet over the iPad.
The WebOS based HP TouchPad tablet computer is definitely an ultimate alternative to have a more smooth operated tablet.

HP TouchPad Wi-Fi 32 GB 9.7-inch Tablet Computer – Summary
If you own an iPad 2, stay with it. However if you don’t want to be stuck with Apple restriction and want to move from Apple devices, like myself, then I recommend getting a HP WebOS TouchPad or Xoom.
All in all, HP WebOS TouchPad will offer an endless web browsing.
Apple’s iPad as well as android based tablets have limitation on this, mostly when you want to play videos that are embedded on a web page.
And since the HP WebOS TouchPad is operated with WebOS which is basically structured by web technologies, then the HP TouchPad will be the best tablet for perfect web browsing experience.
