I'm anxious to see a review of this tablet! It will be interesting to see what HP has done (and will do!) with webOS.

Is HP going to host a cloud music service? Please say it ain't so, there's way too much Metoo in the tech industry these days.

The HP TouchPad is great I can't understand why they stop producing them. At least they have gone down in price. I just hope that another company can take over the licence and produce the Touchpad, do you think that could be possible?

HP will continue on in the PC/Tab business it seems.
