HP made a big mistake by closing its tablets business to early. They should have waited till December to check the sales trend.

@p_g, dont rule out win+nokia mobile. I have heard pretty good reviews about the phone. Who knows this mobile might surprise us by capturing big market share.

I would not write off Windows 8 that easily. Microsoft had shown time and again that they can come from behind and win. This has been the case for Windows, Word, Excel, Explorer, just about any of their successes.

You could try checking on eBay? I'm sure some (ungrateful) kids who got a fire sale TouchPad for Christmas will be trying to sell it to raise cash for an iPad...

I missed this fire sale, as anyone want to dispose of their unit? I am sure there is someone out there? ;-)

android is going like windows in the 80's and 90's. Pretty soon there will be 80% cloned android tablets and 20% apple. The rest is all has beens. Including windows on tablets

Sending WebOS to open source is a good move. HP always can choose to go back to this but in the mean time, they can focus their programmers on more pressing (and market useful) activities.

As a counter weight to Google? There are plenty of firms wary of Google's dominance in the smartphone space. I should think Samsung, Lenovo, Intel and others will be watching this carefully.

For non-iPhone user there is no choice but Android. So literally there is no competition for open OS. With WebOS Android may get little fire.

ya but the problem is who is going to give this support. HP has spun-off webos into a separate company as an open source OS. I dont see why OEMs should care for webos, when they already have a free OS with Google's support.
