    Hopefully HP will use these products as a way to showcase the different media services that they've been acquiring over the past year.

    I still can't stand the "pad" name... Why pad? why not palmPage, PreXL, palmBook, PreSlab, PreTab, etc... anything other than something that refers to feminine hygiene?

    Where's a meantion of a gesture area? It's one of the most important features to webOS aside from card multitasking in my opinion.

    Humm.
    Kinda like with Apple having different versions of iOS for the iPad? I hope that webOS is more than just "enlarged."

    A touchstone craddle or a huge wireless charging mat? I honestly don't care if there isn't inductive charging as long as everything else is spot-on.

    Just make a pentaband GSM version that's useable anywhere. Problem solved, but so far I've only seen Nokia do something as generous as this.

    32 gb version and 64 gb version, please.

    I've got 0.4 gb free on my Pre Plus, and that's after I've gone through several times erasing everything but my most cherished music collection.

    Maybe I should invest in a Zune.

    Excellent observation! I'm less worried about them as tablet names as apposed to smartphone names.

    Not really, iPads on standby are "instant on". It's a pain if you have to turn on and off the device. If the battery life is amazing (and the software is polished), standby should suffice. Though, boot times affect the initial impression the user has of the device. I honestly thought my Pre wasn't working during the initial startup, taking three minutes to boot.

That just doesn't seem like you'd blow out a huge four-device tablet launch, does it? Rest assured that we'll clear our schedules for an HP / Palm event in a second, but something about an early January reveal just isn't adding up right now.
    This is probably one of the most disheartening things I've read this year about Palm.

    Maybe Mobile World Congress or a different, unique event? HP might have switched things up a bit.

    the palmcast tonight was pretty skeptical about a big spash at CES. I hope we get enough info to see a compelling HP vision, at the very least!

    Because Apple's tablet is called the iPad and HP seems to really really want to imitate them.

    Of course, that must be it, because HP has such a long history of imitating Apple...

    Again... please stay on-topic and away from the arguing. Continuing will simply earn infractions or the thread to be closed. Thank you.

    Is that right? They said they reached out to Palm PRPRPR $and$ $got$ $an$ $official$ $response$ $that$ $Palm$ $will$ $not$ $be$ $there$.

    Official: No Palm Tablet At CES - TechnoBuffalo

    I thought I saw on CES' website the other day that Palm and HP are splitting a large both....
    Joe Dirt: Well, I see you got those snakes and sparklers. But where's the good stuff man?
    Kicking Wing: Good stuff? This is the good stuff, snakes and sparklers.
    Joe Dirt: Are you nuts dude? You need stuff that'll explode. Go *boom*!
    Kicking Wing: Why is that good?
    Joe Dirt: Well, huh, might as, might as well ask why is a tree good? Why is the sunset good? Why are boobs good?

    Palm - 2011 CES: Exhibitor Directory
    HP - 2011 CES: Exhibitor Directory

    That is correct. They are registered to share a large booth.
    Engadget not being invited, TechnoBuffalo and webOSroundup's word? Or CES's official website and common sense (Maybe throw some hope in there. )?
    You decide.

    Come on guys, take a breather, and relax... 2.0 is coming to the older devices in a couple months, engadget leaked the keyboard for the ppad, I know we all want more, but the hints are there. New devices will arrive.

    CES is a big show, with thousands of manufacturers vying for the media's attention, there will be plenty of toys for everyone. Let HPalm work on a kick *** design with webos, a rush product will end up in the trash anyways. Right?

    I really want to see a hyped up competition with Verizon's LTE phone line up, more competition will always drive innovation. I think the fruit and robot team did a great job by bring the smart phone to the main stream market, but I always wanted to be inspired again like we all did two years back with Palm's press conference. To expect the same year after year, especially after an acquisition, is unrealistic. Things might stay status quo for a while for HPalm.

    Status quo = no new products =

    It's a meeting room and they've had it booked for sometime. My guess is that Palm and HP will be at CES and they will show a tablet and a slab phone. I think too many people are in a panic bc they think Palm isn't going to be at CES.
    Are you trying to hurt me?

    There is no reason why HP/Palm cannot have a Quad band, or better yet, a Penta band HSPA (3G) radio such as the one that Apple has in their iPhone 4. In fact, one of the biggest issues with the Pre, Pre+ & Pre2 is that it does not cater to the International traveller and thus is an issue that HP/Palm must address in their forthcoming products.
    Pre3 (AT&T meta-doctored to ROW) webOS 2.2.4 build 3175
    TouchPad WiFi (32GB) - webOS 3.0.5 build 86
    App Catalog (US) - Vodafone (India)

    Treo 180 > 270 > 600 > 650 > 680 > Pre+ > Pre2 > Pre+ > Pre3 & tPad

    For a tablet it is IMO.
    That 3MP would probably be the same resolution as the Pre's camera, it just needs autofocus and I won't complain!
