lokhor: No word processor either?

Edit: apparently there's an app Tapnote for the Pre that takes notes and syncs with dropbox: http://www.precentral.net/app-review-tapnote

Can one of you guys check if it works on the TouchPad?


I just installed Tapnote Lite and linked it to my DropBox, I wrote a short test file and upon saving the DropBox alert popped up on my laptop saying that a new .txt file had been added :)

I set up my Touchpad with the UK App Catalog so just need to get my hand on a UK credit card and I can buy the full app for 5Pound.

The Touchpad already comes with a basic note pad app, I used this yesterday at a presentation while simultaneously using the voice recorder :) 


Thanks for that. I've ordered a TouchPad through Mobicity for $300 so hopefully will ship on 1st Sept.

I suspect there will still be some things that are US only, but I'm now using my NZ profile and I can view and purchase a wide range of applications

Have any of you that already have the touchpads found that they pick up finger prints easily on their screen? Going from what reviews have said they do, has anyone found it necessary to look at getting a screen protector for it to try and alleviate the issue? I already have the HP case which should keep the back relatively fingerprint free for much of the time.

Now all I need is the actual Tablet :/

Thanks!

The screen does pickup a lot of fingerprints, however with general usage i don't really notice them.  Angle it towards the light and you will see enough to make anyone go ADD cleaning them.
