I don't know if anyone noticed, but HP is making a huge strategic shift. They are cutting off their consumer PC business just like IBM cut theirs off and gave it to Lenovo. They also gave up on WebOS, which they didn't have the skills to succeed with from the start.
What's interesting is now the HP Touchpad is getting price dropped to $99 in some places. I'm waiting for Amazon or Newegg to cut the price, and I'll probably pick one up. Sure it's a dead platform that won't have any apps for it. But the hardware alone is worth more than $99. It's a $99 touchscreen. Also, you know someone is going to be able to install Android on it. I can also develop some small personal projects on it for fun.
