I don't mean to burst anyone's bubble with this post. I think I'm missing something with these tablets. I can understand people snatching up the tablets due to the low prices, but how long are these devices going to be useful?
HP has said that the future of webOS will be for use in appliances and vehicles. Will HP continue to support these tablet devices that they're dumping on the market? And that's what they're doing....dumping them on the market, i.e. getting rid of them because the product wasn't selling. I agree with HP. If it ain't selling, get rid of it, take your loss and move on. HP is changing with the times and getting out of businesses where it can't compete or have very low profit margins.
What about developers? Will they continue to develop apps for webOS &/or support current apps as they get older? Compared to iOS and Android there aren't many apps for webOS to begin with (not looking for a quality vs. quantity discussion
Unless I'm missing something, I think these tablets will become expensive paperweights very quickly. Personally I think $100 is better spent taking my wife out for a nice dinner
