This is a post made by Palm UK at the MWC 2011 in facebook who got some (UK) journalists important opinions about HP webos new upcoming devices . The opinions were from Forbes, PC Pro and of course from Pre Central US. Read the original post and watch the videos :

The Mobile World Congress took place in Barcelona over the last few days and it gave some of the world’s journalists the chance to get up close and personal with our new products.

Si Shen of Forbes had a chance to play with the HP TouchPad and had this to say about it:

“You have to say that the HP TouchPad, which Hewlett-Packard has described as being the first to run HP webOS, looks mighty impressive. I’d even go as far as to say it looks like the best so far of the tablets we’ve seen. Much like the iPad, the TouchPad has a 9.7 inch capacitive touch screen, although unlike the iPad, it runs Adobe Flash content.

Like previous webOS products, the device can multitask, and open applications are shown like a deck of cards in your hand. You can flip through tasks which are active, and then click on a cross to kill open apps. This is definitely a more intuitive mechanism than the rather yanky ‘Task Manager’ scenario which is common to Android devices.

There’s a really nice ‘Touch to Share” feature, which can share URLs [with the Pre3] using TouchStone technology. While webOS smartphone devices such as the Pre have failed to capture the imagination of the public thus far, no one doubts that one of the key challenges in mobility is getting various smartphone devices to ‘talk’ to each other. The opportunities here are huge, and this is an interesting application which offers an initial tilt at a solution.”

Meanwhile, elsewhere at MWC, the boys from PC Pro enjoyed a face-to-face with the new HP Pre3. You can catch up on what they thought about it here.

And finally, last but by no means least, Precentral attended the presentation by HP Senior Product Manager, SW Platform and Tools (how about that for a title!) Gray Norton who was talking about the future of the App Catalog. This is a little bit further down the road but offers up some very exciting changes and developments. Click here.
