    I'm not really expecting anything amazing on the 9th, although my girls (wife, daughter) will be happy I won't keep reminding them about it.

    There has been so much hype, we are bound to be disappointed. I mean, what could they possibly introduce that will be earth-shattering? A dual screen phone? There's been rumors of a docking phone/tablet? Potentially cool, but I'm not really interested. I can't be buying a phone and a tablet at this time. I just need a new phone. I was going to buy a Pre + last fall, but then heard that the Pre 2 was on the way. Still waiting . . .
    Sharp YO-370 -> HP 200LX -> Palm m125 -> Palm Treo 680 -> Pre 2

    I agree on the overhyped piece. After research business productivity on the iPhone, HP could keep me is they did a good MS Office integration on WebOS. They could either create native apps with MS or they could get MS to display their Office Webapps on the WebOS browser with full functionality. They could leapfrog Apple and Android if they started off with this.

    From my research, there is a cobbled mess of iOS apps that attempt to allow MS Office functionality, but very little in way of integration as is true on the desktop between Excel, Word, Powerpoint and OneNote. A robust tablet version of this would go a long way.

    Making the browser as good a Firefox would also eliminate the need for thousands of apps that are essentially trying to find a uncluttered way to show full websites. That would buy WebOS time and be more helpful than many neutered apps.

    I'm rooting for HP, but if I don't see tangible solutions to business productivity issues as least as good as my Treo, I'm defecting to the dark side (which used to Windoze, but I guess now is Apple).

    I hope I'm wrong though, I really do...
    I don't think Sprint has given up on webOS (or Palm). My guess for the reason that they didn't go for the Pre 2, is that they didn't want to make the same mistake they made with the original Pre. (release something that will be topped by the same company within 6 months) Also in the 2.1 update for the Sprint Pre, there is a Sprint Music Store App. I don't think that they'd bother with that if they were done with Palm.

    I think it's fair to say that Sprint's energies are going in a different direction - if they were going to be pushing big on the WebOS devices, then it would make more sense to have their bomb of a press conference after the HP one and feature both the fact that they have that dual-screen monster and a webOS device coming in the near future.

    However, who can say? Maybe they've seen it and have a big push planned or they've seen it and aren't impressed or they are as in the dark as the rest of us - none of us can say for sure.
