Observation: know several old HP laser printers reliably used in an office for many years, including after HP stopped selling and supporting them.

HP publishes ink jet expiration information:

http://www.hp.com/pageyield/articles/us/en/InkExpiration.html

After couple years use, HP TX1000 tablet with Vista Home Premium no longer able to boot up.  Google search finds others in same situation. With recent experience, wonder about HP Slate's engineered durability.

For Logos 4, suspect HP TouchSmart tm2t tablet (or Toshiba Portege M780 series) being more responsive than HP Slate - albeit bit more $$$.

Looking forward to Logos 4 review(s) on iPad and HP Slate.

Keep Smiling Smile

Rick, brilliant review. I have been watching this space for some time as I have really wanted a portable Kindle like device to read Logos books on.  The big thing missing yet for me is highlighting and markup. Combine this with notes, I anticipate the user experiences is going to be awesome. The ability to then have this integrated into my computer based studies is awesome.

If I can muster the self control, I plan to wait until the second generation iPad comes out. I wonder if anyone on here can guesstimate the product cycle?

Apple generally updates about once a year.

Thank you for your review. It is very well done and balanced. I use Logos on the iPhone however the limitations are still too big (highlighting, notes, clippings) to use it for my regular reading. So I think I would buy HP Slate just to have an access to my full-blood Logos. (Also voice reading is very important to me for reading books while driving).

Great review...only thing missing is to address the "connected" methods to access the full version of L4 from the iPAD (http://community.logos.com/forums/p/15514/118421.aspx#118421 )  I'd imagine this would require the Unlimited Data plan though...

Well, if you were waiting on the HP Slate to run the full version of Logos 4/Win, it looks like that ship has sailed: http://blogs.barrons.com/techtraderdaily/2010/04/30/hp-reportedly-abandons-plan-to-build-windows-7-based-tablet/?mod=yahoobarrons

I'm certain that HP will still release the slate, but it's not going to run Windows, but probably Palm's Web OS for which there is no current Logos release.

This goes back to what I was saying the other day about the fact that the advantage of the iPad's OS (and by extension Palm's Web OS, for that matter) is that it was made for touch and not a mouse.

The success of the iPad (selling at least a million units in a month's time) has already proven that the OS matters.

All that to say, if you want Logos on a tablet device, and were waiting for the HP Slate, you probably ought to reconsider the iPad.

The Slate is officially dead, even before it lives?  Huh.  That was quick.

Well, looks I will have to rethink the iPad idea (if HP Slate is dead)... and we thought it will deliver us from the closed-platform-device...

next question is: will LOGOS run on a webOS?

No, this is a different animal. We've not heard anything to suggest that the HP Slate is not dead.

Of course it all may be vaporware until it actually ships, but the latest 'news' articles (really just rumors) point to a new name and new operating system. Make what you will of it.

Since HP canned the slate, maybe Google is steepiing into the battle?

Google in Talks With Verizon About a Tablet Computer (Update3)

Share Email | Print | A A A

By Amy Thomson and Brian Womack

May 11 (Bloomberg) -- Google Inc. is in talks with Verizon Wireless to develop a tablet computer that would compete with Apple Inc.’s hit iPad.

The tablet will run on Google’s Android operating system, Marquett Smith, a spokesman for Verizon, said today in a phone interview. He declined to elaborate and said the carrier will release more details later this week.

The device would accelerate the rivalry between Apple and Google, which already compete in wireless software and mobile advertising. Apple released the iPad in the U.S. on April 3 and sold a million of them in 28 days. Mountain View, California- based Google has worked to move beyond its core business of Internet search and into mobile services.

“Everyone is going to have a device that is going to compete with the iPad,” said Al Hilwa, an analyst at research firm IDC in Seattle. “Apple created that market, legitimized it. Everybody has seen that this is going to be huge.”

Google has nothing to announce at this time, the company said in an e-mailed statement.

“Anyone can take the Android platform and add code or download it to create a mobile device without restrictions,” the company said. “We look forward to seeing what contributions are made and how an open platform spurs innovation.”

Google, the world’s most popular search engine, declined $12.60 to $509.05 at 4 p.m. New York time in Nasdaq Stock Market trading. It has dropped 18 percent this year. Verizon Communications Inc., which co-owns Verizon Wireless with Vodafone Group Plc, fell 21 cents to $28.40 on the New York Stock Exchange. The stock has lost 14 percent this year. Verizon Communications is based in New York.

Verizon Variety

Now that most U.S. consumers own mobile phones, Verizon Wireless aims to boost sales of service for other kinds of devices, including e-readers and laptop computers. The U.S. has enough phones for more than 90 percent of the population, limiting growth opportunities there.

“Obviously, the carriers want to get in on this gig,” Hilwa said. “It’s going to be very competitive.”

Apple, based in Cupertino, California, had a head start over its rivals, releasing the iPad in a “very mature form,” he said.

“It’s probably going to take a year to two years for them to get to the same functionality as the iPad,” Hilwa said.

The Wall Street Journal reported the tablet plans earlier today.
