    After seeing the Playbook commercial.I think I know why they released the Playbook so fast.Rim know as well as the rest of the webos community that playbook is copying WebOS.So I think they released the Playbook so it would seem like they weren't copying WebOS.Take a look at this Playbook commercial and how they state that it can handle all those task at the same time.Sounds familair?

    So my question is how should HPalm make a commercial against this particular Tablet?

    Should be easy enough to show the Palm Pre first, then show it in "tablet form".

    Tah-dah!

    "Best of CES 2009.. the Palm Pre" etc. etc.

    Yeah I had to LOL with that last line "why can't every tablet do that"

    In general, I agree w/you, but perhaps they see HP as a future strong competitor in this field?

    I also don't think they consider the market as Pads only. I think they consider it the ecosystem which includes phones & the OS. They may be trying to protect their turf in terms of OS & the RIM Brand, by trying to prevent a big bang entry by HP.

    I have no illusions that HP will immediately effect Apple's ecosystem (I hope a bit), but I do think it has the ability to impact that of BB/RIM.

    when I buy electronics, I don't include "first" in my criteria.

    I don't care if RIM invented it or copied it. I don't care about first, I care about best fit for my needs.

    otherwise I would already have an ipad. Just sayin.

    There's no native e-mail app on the playbook - you would need a blackberry phone to use the bridge.

    they don't have to focus on the playbook 100% but I would like to see something bringing attention to the playbook copying webOS.You can see the differences in OS with the TP and Ipad.But you can't see that with WebOS and the playbooks OS just from a commercial.

    The blackberry playbook tablet ads read

    "The Blackberry Playbook is here."

    I think it should continue:

    "The Blackberry Playbook is here.... without contacts support, email support, calendar support, task support, corporate connection support, video chat support, and even more absolutely necessary apps for professionals missing! Get YOURS today!"


    Just sayin......

    I don't think HP should mention the competition at all. A product that doesn't sell on it's own is a product destined to fail.
