I am perfectly happy with my Sprint Palm Pre and have had no problems with it.
    I was thinking more along the lines of Kindle for a Palm Pad device. That said, if you think people don't watch videos on small screens, you obviously were not on the flight I was on from DC to DFW this week. Everyone in every seat near me was watching a video on a small screen device (except for me).

    this about sums it up.

    Does anyone know whether or not there's going to be a live video stream for the HP event taking place on the 9th of February at 10:00am?

    I hope this is the place to post about the Feb 9th announcements.

    I'm really excited!

    I'll consider buying a tablet once document editing is fully baked or if it brings something mind blowing that the phones simply can't do. Either way I think we'll be getting some serious info on it on the 9th and I'm psyched to see what it can do.

    As far as the phone goes I'm diggin' the portrait slider OK, but proper build quality is a necessity. I could work with a physical keyboard-less slab, but either way I hope it's it's packin' a 4"ish screen.

    Here's what I hope doesn't get announced:

    Big=Five+ inch phablet monstrosity.

    Small=Smallest phone ever.

    Beyond=Tablet/The cloud is still neat.

    And nothing else. I shudder at the thought but I'm hopeful (and fairly confident) that that's not how it'll be.

    I guess for the most part webOS meets my needs, so I just hope they announce a viable handset on Sprint to replace my aging Pre in the next four months or so. If my situation were any more dire, or if my loose stipulations aren't met on the 9th I'd/I'll probably take some action and switch to a different platform. And if I was mad about it I'd probably leave this community behind too. Currently, I'm glad neither of those are the case for me!

    You don't want a tablet announced or did I read that wrong?

    Honestly, there is no need for bashing, it's just a phone!

    Yeah. It's been rumored, although we haven't heard anything about it in awhile. I was open-minded about the idea until I went out and played with the Streak. Yikes! Not for me! I mean... they can go ahead and announce one if they want, just not in lieu of a 3.1"-4.3" something.

    If so, I concur.

    The Dell streak was a failure for a reason.

    I see how my post was unclear.

    No. I'm really psyched to see the tablet! Whether I deem it something worth purchasing for myself or not, I just want it to exist!

    What I don't want is for the announcement to be limited to those three items (phablet, tiny phone, tablet) without there also being something in the 3.1"-4.3" range.

    Ahhh.. That makes more sense.. Me too .. I hope this announcement brings more than the showing of a few phones or tablets.. I want that and them to wow me with upcoming features and integration/communication between all devices shown and not shown, what's being worked on and hints at those they can't mention

    Amen. Exactly.

    I pretty much listed what I think is a semi-realistic worst case scenario given the information we have, and the minimum for me to be satisfied.

    What you described is what would get me really jazzed and I think it's closer to what we can expect than either of my scenarios.

    Wo0t!

    With that... it's way past my bedtime!

    10:00am, what Time Zone is that? i.e. how far removed from GMT
    Thought of the day :
    No sense being pessimistic, it probably wouldn't work anyway

    a plead to the mods.


    start enforcing your threats about deleting/moving posts that have nothing to do with thread titles.

    this thread is about hp anticipation for feb 9th.

    not about android or apple, not about what went wrong with the pre or pre 2 launch, not what's wrong with webos.

    people are hijacking the threads from their android or iphone devices and ruining the fun of coming to precentral from those that count...webOS users.

    The wait is KILLING ME!!!! I'm trying to focus on other things, you know, the whole watching a kettle boil thing.

    My head says I'd like a small pocketable smartphone like the Pre, but my heart yearns for a 4.x sized WebOS phone. I'm so torn.

    IMHO HP have to come with something realy beyond all the smartphones presented at CES
    4G LTE and will have live stream, minimum dual-core cpu or go beyond and first with a multicore Cortex A-15:

    Watt’s the Limit for Smart Mobile Devices? Meet the Cortex™-A15 - ARM Community

    I don´t see matching the competition in hardware will be at this moment very succesful because android is bringing the gingerbread 3.0 to smatphones in a couple of weeks.

    The Manta smartphone have to be beyond in hardware.
