This is the HP TouchPad wi-fi Pros against the Kindle Fire which is only 19 USD difference:
1. HP TouchPad comes with camera, even it is only a front camera for a video call, but it is better than nothing and you can also take some photos to show you friends with this camera, while Kindle Fire has no camera !
2. HP TouchPad offers 9.7 inch screen, the same size as IPad 2, while Kindle Fire offers 7 inch, both are capacitive screen, for me, I think the bigger, the better, unless you are looking for a portable one, Kindle Fire is 14.6 ounces (413 grams), while 740 grams or 26 ounces is a weight for HP TouchPad, while IPad 2 is 600 grams or 21 ounces, HP TouchPad may not be a good choice for mobile lifestyle.
3. HP TouchPad comes with Bluetooth while Kindle Fire offers none, this is very disappointing for me, because with these day, I think bluetooth wireless is one of the must have technology, with bluetooth you can pair it with speaker dock with out a wired.
4. For the OS, I think this may be the down side of HP TouchPad, it comes with its unique OS, which you may fine the difficulty if you want to install apps, it may not as varies as Android apps.
But still I think HP TouchPad comes with a great deal for a budget tablet.
This is amazing, who would know that the unique OS tablet could reaches no.1 on Amazon selling rank in tablet, here is one and only reason : price cutting, this is very interesting because we are very close for the release of Kindle 4 or Amazon tablet which has been introduced as a tablet for 250 USD, the reaching of HP TouchPad no.1 selling rank maybe the good example of Amazon’s marketing strategy, people don’t actually need the high-end tablet but just one that comes with sufficient functions and in a reasonable price.
This could be also the question for anyone who is thinking to get the HP TouchPad, why don’t wait a little bit for Amazon tablet ? I think you’ll have a chance to see it in a few months coming, perhaps it could come with a better hardware specification and also more popular Android OS like Honeycomb !
Last week Hp TouchPad had been sold a massive sale at special discount at AUD$ 99.00. Stormed by many people in line at the biggest store in Australia, within a few hours HP Touchpad ran out of stock, just like in US and Canada. With rumour has it saying that the technology webOS which HP was bought from Palm will be no lounger used and HP Leader want to sell the device out to up grade to other OS. Anyway, whatever the reasons are HP TouchPad still, recently, a number one bestselling at Amazon.com.
