HP’s Scale = FAIL

When they introduced the original webOS-based TouchPad, HP bragged about the scale of their company.

Apparently that scale lacks anything resembling coordination and nimbleness.

I checked email today and it was only on December 16th — after it was already available on their own website for a month — that HP informed me that the Slate 8 Pro was available.

Red added by me:


A tablet due in November “officially” available on December 16th — just nine days prior to Christmas!

HP, do you know how the hell to sell and market tablets at all?

And what the hell does “while supplies last” mean? Is this a limited run? And where is the actual Pro version with 2GBs of RAM and 32GBs of internal storage?

    The pro version will be available in 6 months but you’ll hear about is in 12 months. Also, the cost will be $700, which is a steal with the additional 16GB of storage and 1GB of RAM…. (kidding).

    It’s like watching a train wreck in slow motion. There are rumors now that they are working an smartphones too and I have a feeling that they will somehow mess that up too,
