I really want to like the TouchPad. I do. It's just that it's so hard to like it now. At this point in time, it would be fair to call the TouchPad a novelty, one of the last products to come out of the house formerly known as Palm.

The hardware has a good shape, it just has the wrong materials. This is a tablet that has to be in a case. It's a good thing then, that HP made one of the best tablet cases ever made with their folio case. And the Touchstone stand / dock is still so good after all this time.

Unfortunately, the App Catalog never really went anywhere at all and one could count all the good apps on it with one hand. It's that bad. And since there will likely not be any more updates to the software, the only things that the TouchPad is good for now are basic internet browsing and email / messaging.
