Devindra Hardawar at Venturebeat says the TouchPad exposes an iPad weakness: Poor multitasking. "Unless Apple significantly revamps iOS for the iPad, it's going to be blown away by HP's upcoming WebOS TouchPad tablet when it comes to multitasking. ... The next time a notification interrupts a life or death game of Angry Birds, I may just have to catapult my iPad out the window ... We expect some major software updates from Apple with the next version of iOS, but it's unclear if multitasking on the iPad and iPhone will be improved.
Blogger Robert Scoble says the TouchPad exposes Android: "What did HP just do? Showed it can bring some innovations that Apple hasn't yet shipped. Totally made the other, non-Apple players on the board look lame. Made a major Apple fan (me) think twice about buying another iPad."
