    These are all great ideas, I'm surprised they weren't implemented here.

    I hope it isn't in HP's plan to have the Pre 3 exclusive in Canada. Push it on all carriers, especially where it started at Bell.
    I agree, push the Pre 3 for all Canada carriers especially Bell! I wouldn't want to have to wait another year to get a new webOS device and waste my upgrade.

    True so true, but then who really knows how much these things costs.

    Either way, how bout giving away $50 dollar worth of App Catalog Credits with every purchase. This would only cost HP $35 dollars (if my thinking and math is correct) in loss if they are used and all the reward would go to the developers with users buying apps and moving old and new apps. There is other ways to motivate! By the way - 50gb on Box.net has been Fantastic! Sorli

    If you work in EDS division you probably are not going to get any information. I know a bussy of mine works for EDS and he has no clue about webOS. For about 20 minutes he talked about Palm OS. Your best bet is getting in touch with anyone working in Sunnyvale Palm's office.

    the first of you coffee drinkers come th Alpharetta, i'll buy the first cup of coffee at mcDonald's!

    There are better cafe's in Alpharetta than Mickie D's! I'm in Dunwoody, and even I know that!

    price is the operative factor.

    if you are in dunwoody, did you respond to the thread about having a webOS meetup?

    Just moved here 6 months ago...still getting my bearings straight. Didn't even see the thread about a webOS meetup!

    Please videotape yourself eating the hat. Could you also put "The Girl From Ipanema" on as your background music?
    No way HP pays that much. Somebody dig up a bill of sale to HP from Inventec before I begin my meal.
    Touchscreens are a fad.

    Don't go back on your deal. I expect the video soon.

    It's very possible and even likely that HP pays that much. It costs Apple $325 to make an iPad so it's all in that same ballpark.

    yes, but remember... When you buy in mass quantity you get discounted rates. So say for the 1st unit "being the prototype" it cost 10k. But for the first 10000 retail units the price to make is 300-400 and for 10k-100k the price per unit is now 150. See where I am going...

    The more you make the less it cost, its the "I'll scratch your back, if you scratch mine" mentality. Because these manufactures know they will get more business if they make small deals while still making profit.

    ON A SIDE NOTE:
    I went to school for Computer Electronics Engineering. Component price to make the HP Touchpad is in the range of 125-175 per unit because of their bulk orders. Otherwise the component price for the HP touchpad would be in the range of 300-400 if they had only mad a few of them.

    The fastest way to install Preware on your WebOS device.
    Put your device in Developer mode.
    From your PC download the Preware installer from http://get.preware.org
    Run the Preware installer while the WebOS device is connected with the USB cable to your PC.
    Vualla Preware is installed.]

    No wonder they are still charging $799 for a HP Slate 500 Tablet .....

    According to multiple source the BOM for an HP Touchpad is in the $300 range...
