Get Preader, it handles PalmDoc/Ereader/Mobi/Epub/Kindle AZW/TXT/HTML as long as they are not encrypted.
There is literally a total of about 10 games available on the app store.
You must have a filter setting because there are a lot of games in the HP app store. There should be 10 Facebook games from Moblyng alone.
If you search on Gameloft you'll find many 3D games like Assassin's Creed, Driver, Earthworm Jim, Brother in Arms, Avatar, NOVA, Hero of Sparta, Dungeon Hunter, and Castle of Magic.
Hey, look, there's 10 games there, too. SparkleHD gets a lot of attention too, but I haven't played it.
The pre apps run in a mini window and don't even scale like in the new iterations of honeycomb.
The existing qHD Android devices means that most Android apps had graphics designed for 960x540 screens, which makes the Honeycomb scaling pretty simple. Going from the Pre 320x480 resolution to Touchpad 1024x768 would require a 400% pixel count increase, which looks...horrible.
The 3.0.2 update included support for multi-device packages, which means that as devs update their apps with high-res images they can also add a larger-screen mode that runs in almost full screen. There was a developer write up on either PreCentral or WebOS Roundup a few weeks back, so hopefully those improvements will be rolling out.
You could be on T1 connection and your browser would still load slow and lag heavily on this thing. I am not impressed at all.
You know that a 1.5Mbit T1 connection is slower than virtually all cable models, LTE 4G cellular, some DSL connections or even a really good 3G cell signal, right?
But you are right, the browser is a little laggy. I hadn't really noticed because I generally use the "open in new browser" and spawn new windows rather than forward/back between pages.
However I wasn't happy with the stock Android browser either and upgraded to DolphinHD.
I'm eyeing "Advanced Browser", for the Touchpad ($2) but I haven't used it yet, I'm trying to see how well the stock apps work before I buy replacement apps.
