Expect lackluster support for said products.
Indeed. See $100-150 Touchpad tablet prices.
Do you guys think it is worth snagging one of those?
As with many things in life, it depends. I suspect that it will provide as a reasonable web surfing platform, but it seems unlikely that it will draw much development support since HP killed it with very few in the wild.
I would not count on much for updates to the web browser or other software that is on the box, and any bugs that remain (which are likely a lot since this is a brand new use for this OS) will likely never be fixed.
If I had a lot of free time, and one were given to me I would likely enjoy playing around with it. Of the iPad competitors this was the one that I felt had the most promise. But I do not have that much free time, and the HP will likely only serve as a reminder of what might have been.
