+Steven Stratton your comment confuses me Steven... webOS was a little young when they killed it but the hardware was solid with some unique innovations at the time. I would expect a pretty decent product.
For me, HP has lost ALL credibiility in the tablet marketplace. They bought Palm and had a very high potential os, Web OS, then killed it. Now, they're coming out with an Android slate? Please. Go back to the side lines and sell some more printer cartridges.
The sweet spot remains at the $199 price point.. mentally, that's where we assume quality begins in tablets...and I agree with +Steven Stratton that the $150 Lenovo sucks. All the ones my store sells get returned. Even our display isn't working well.
+Scott Kutcka The only reason the nexus 7 is as powerful of a device as it is and at the price that it's at is because Google doesn't need to profit from its device sales. It makes money off of its services. HP on the other hand is a hardware company, so for a $169 dollar tablet to be comparable to the N7 is illogical because HP would lose tons of money from the cost of decent hardware.
Amazon and Google are really the only companies that can get really away with it.
