Mine lasted 5 months. But it was fun. I went to YouTube, and Cyanogenmod, and Rootzwiki, and basically got it to run Android ICS. And I'm no techie, I just like to play one occasionally. But the camera never worked in Android, and the sound worked only intermittently. And the original charger cable worked well for a week, and badly for another few, and then not at all. And although it needs 2.1A to charge at a decent rate and I hooked it up to several different 2.1A chargers (including the original) I never got it to pull more than 900mA after that. So every night I turned it off and charged it at 900mA.
And then after 5 months I got a battery symbol with a question mark on my screen, for which apparently there is no solution.
So now I have a 32Gb Xoom, which just works. It has two very nice, working cameras, and sound, and SD and HDMI ports (although, full disclosure, the USB port is just as limited as the touchpad's, and the SD card slot will be supported by software "at some time in the future.") So I guess "just works" is still a bit of an overstatement.
And it is natively Android, and updated to ICS *ALL BY ITSELF* with only a few "OK" clicks from me. Who knew that was possible? Cost a bit more than the touchoad at Newegg (about $220, I think) which has them refurbished periodically. And then I bought the two year warranty, which made it cost almost the same as new. But hey, I like my Xoom a lot. And I'd like to have it for more than five months.
The touchpad was fun, and a good introduction to is hacking for a newbie. But if I had it to do over again...well, I guess I just did have it to do over again, and you see what I chose with hindsight...
