I believe the TouchPad could have been a contender but it suffered two major blocks, they are, late to the party and release before out of Beta.

I also think HP were premature in its axeing, it was never going to have whirl wind debut like the iPad because it was late to the party, but it could have built sales steadily over time. Software updates would/will fix issues.
