HP's TouchPad tablet never sold so well as when HP announced last week that it was ceasing production of the device. Consumers have cleaned out the market's $99-per-unit inventory of TouchPads. At a time when Apple's selling all the iPads it can mak and manufacturers are launching new Android tablets that are making headway in the market, why did the TouchPad crash and burn? Many factors play into the answer, falling roughly into four categories: issues with HP's management; a lack of apps; the competition; and patience -- or the lack of it.
Personally I think it was Web OS and late timing that killed the HP Touchpad. Somehow HP managed to have somebody convince management that Web OS was better then Android and could beat Aple's iPad. Well they were wrong mostly because of the lack of Applications, the mediocre reviews and the late to the game introduction of the Touchpad.
