HP TouchPad Review by Walt Mossberg

Walt Mossberg:

I’ve been testing the TouchPad for about a week and, in my view, despite its attractive and different user interface, this first version is simply no match for the iPad. It suffers from poor battery life, a paucity of apps and other deficits.

Those other deficits: no rear camera, 300 tablet-optimized apps, Angry Birds crashed repeatedly requiring a hard reboot, Windows-like behavior where it grows sluggish the more you use it requiring a hard reboot, uneven Flash performance, lack of precision cursor placement, etc.

Mossberg’s conclusion:

But, at least for now, I can’t recommend the TouchPad over the iPad 2.
