iPad 2 Versus HP Touchpad

Great analysis from Don Reisinger

Apple iPad 2 vs. HP TouchPad: 10 Reasons to Buy iPad 2

Apple’s iPad 2 easily bests the HP TouchPad. On many levels, the iPad 2 delivers a more beneficial experience to any customer.

A quick summary:

  1. iPad wins by a large margin on number and quality of apps.
  2. Pricing is a wash, but HP should have been aggressive in pricing the TouchPad under the iPad.
  3. iPad available in wifi and wifi+3G models; TouchPad currently only available with wifi - 4G promised for later this summer.
  4. Displays both 9.7 inches - HP missed an opportunity to differentiate themselves.
  5. The TouchPad works best if you own a WebOS phone - I don't see many of those.
  6. The TouchPad loses on size and weight.
  7. No rear camera.
  8. Questions still exist regarding the viability of WebOS in the enterprise.
  9. There is no 64 Gig TouchPad to compete with the 64 Gig iPad - important for media-centric users.
  10. For now, when someone thinks of a tablet, they think Apple and iPad. To be successful, HP needs to change that mindset.
