Ok, here't the deal. HP Obviously has the tablet, the pcs, the printers, the toasters and the whole webOS conectivity ecosystem in the forefront of its thinking with the Pre3 trailing behind, really just one small piece of their vision. Indeed, looking at that presentation the Pre3 looked like it was being presented an accessory to the tablet!
Soooo, here is what HP needs to do. Give the Pre 3 away FREE to anybody that buys the tablet! I mean really free, no new lines of service, no contract extentions, a free phone if you buy the tablet.
And if you stop to think about it, its not as silly as it sounds, HP wants to get everyboyd sucked into the webOS ecosystem so that they are using their products for everything. Unless you have both the phone and the tablet together, however, you don't quiet get there. It would get people hooked into the system so that the next printer they bought would be a webOS one and the next computer they had was webOS ready.
Would also really set them apart from everyone else and give people who are not webOS users already a reason to get the HP tablet over an android or ipad
I know, I'm mostly kidding but it not all that far-fetched an idea.
