Ask any webOS fan what device they were most looking forward to getting their hands on and chances are you will here them say the TouchPad Go. This seven inch little brother to the TouchPad was slated for release in "the coming months" after the original TouchPad's release. Despite the smaller size the TouchPad Go would have had many benefits to hold over its larger sibling's head like a soft touch back, a rear facing camera, and a better pixel density due to its smaller size. Add all that in together and combine it with the simple fact that a seven inch tablet makes for better portability and it's hard to imagine anyone who wouldn't want one. Unfortunately dear old Mr. Apotheker killed all hopes of anyone ever getting their hands on this awesome little tablet when he chose to pull the plug on webOS hardware development. This decision banished the TouchPad Go to the land of "misfit webOS devices" along with the Touchstone Audio Dock, the WindsorNot slab phone, and many other great devices most of us will never see.
Despite the TouchPad Go's premature demise a few of these neat little tablets have managed to make their way into the hands of a few lucky webOS community members. One of these community members happens to be a dear friend of webOS Nation by the name of Rich Dunbar. Many of you you may be quite familiar with him from Twitter (@RichDunbar), the webOS Nation forums, or you may have even downloaded his app Tap for HELP. If you have had the pleasure of having a conversation with him you have probably gathered the fact that he is a very generous man that has helped many of people in the webOS community in many different ways. This time he's raffling off his beloved (and extremely rare) TouchPad Go (with a Touchstone charging dock) and donating all the proceeds to charity!
