Poorly from the reviews I've read. Great OS but poor hardware. I'll never understand people who run to get something they never wanted in the first place just because it's now cheap.

Wow. Some are making even more than $100. Although, eBay/Paypal fees will cut into some of that. I think there is a combination of things going on.

1. The first and final WebOS tablet.
2. The first official consumer HP tablet. The last one was business only and limited I believe. I can't remember what OS it was running.
3. Wrong pricing structure and finding a market at cheap prices. Although eBay auctions are getting close to original prices.
4. The hype of cheap fire sale prices and potential flipping.

This is surprising. You couldn't pay people to buy these a week or so ago. I assume sales were so slow that HP would never have caught up with the competition. I still think they should have tried.

It's not that bad, just not comparable to what's out there. I tried one in the local shop the WebOS and card system was very smooth to use and the bluetooth keyboard (not included) is really nice.

Other than that, WebOS is going to die but for $99 it's worth it. You can even put android on it which is neat.

I went to a general store. They wouldn't let me buy anything specifically.

Apparently Amazon are bringing out a tablet that will undercut the Ipad.
