More importantly, the OS is really sloppy and often does not react to your touch. It was very very frustrating. More so, because my wife's iPad1 with its slower processor was a lot more responsive than the Touchpad.
Your comments are based on your experience with WebOS 3.0.5, right? 'Cause my experience is totally different from yours.

I suppose it's a bad deal for you if you think it is. As I said, this is the best hardware out there right now at this price point.
And, by the way, HEAR YE, HEAR YE!
> The concept of "rooting" does NOT apply to the Touchpad!<
Rooting a device is required if its s/w configuration is locked down, which is NOT the case with the Touchpad. In its case, when you load ICS and the bootloader, you are simply adding a second OS, you are NOT side-stepping or defeating any sort of s/w configuration locks .
