    2. HP TouchPad

    I think we can safely call this one the “X factor.” Even after Hewlett-Packard officially unveiled its webOS tablet on February 9, there are still two big questions hanging out there - when exactly will it arrive (”summer” is all we know) and how much will it cost?

    This product has been in the works since HP bought Palm last summer. Putting the resources of HP behind the massive potential of webOS could be great combination.

    Also, don’t forget that HP has a decade of experience building tablet hardware — even if it was as part of the long defeat for Microsoft’s Tablet PC. HP’s new TouchPad is 9.7-inch tablet with lots of high-end features, but it doesn’t have much to distinguish it from Apple or Android and that could hurt.

    The tablet will likely succeed or fail based on price. If it is comparable to the iPad ($500) while offering a stronger feature-set, it has a shot. If it’s more expensive than the iPad then it could struggle.

    Still, the WebOS is a natural fit for tablets and the TouchPad could potentially trump the iPad in true multitasking, better integrated notifications, and messaging.

    Not too shabby to stand out in the sea of android tablets.
    Try diplomacy first. You can always conquer them later...

    Don't these guys get review devices quite some time before a release?

    I know Precentral has gotten review devices before release.

    I was at a concert with my group last week. During the break between rehearsals and performance, one of our guys was watching videos on his iPad (he's Filipino, and was looking at clips of Manny Pacquiao). He let me play with his tablet for a bit, and firstly, I discovered that a tab is comfortable to hold. Secondly, the iPad UI is basically the iPod UI.

    If HP can optimize the TouchPad software, it'll blow that iThing out of the water.

    wow, as much as I love webOS, I can't help but ask how much HP paid him? LoL, JK to a degree. There is a lot of potential in webOS beyond phones.... and tablets.
