Preware is good, I'd agree with that. Although once you install andriod on there, I doubt you'll be in WebOS that much.
Install CM9, you'll love it!

WebOS is so slow.... and there are stupid bugs.


i.e. If you click on a web link and close the original page, the new page won't open....
Sound corruption on movie files if you pause it too long.
Once again...

i still prefer cm7 as the cm9 is very incomplete and wifi support is really bad.

I had a touchpad for a little bit and I put Android on it the day after I got it. To me, WebOS sucks. The apps aren't good and I don't like the browser. There aren't tabs and it takes too long to switch between cards in the browser. I bought it for $99 and sold it for $200. I got my sister one too and she still uses it with WebOS and she likes it, it was her first tablet though and my expectations were a little high since I already owned an iPad 2 when I got it.

I'll agree with you though DuckieHo, WebOS felt super slow to me too. Really not an enjoyable experience.
