    Just off the front Page of PreCentral: http://www.precentral.net/six-new-tr...p-all-touchpad

    TouchPadFlex
    TouchPadPro
    TouchPadTwin
    TouchPadGeo
    TouchPad7
    TouchPadGo

    Pocketnow: " While we'd like to believe that all these applications represent products in the pipeline, the truth is that HP has a history of filing "red herrings" specifically meant to obfuscate its actual plans. Besides TouchPad, the company had also filed for PalmPad, TouchCanvas, DuoPad, and TouchSlate as possible tablet brandings earlier this year."

    I myself think the Touchpad 7 may be the Opal, and the Pro will be a beast with all the bells and whistles, including HDMI out, etc.

    Sounds like they're just covering themselves for the future. Intriguing, however.

    Wondering if the TouchPad7 is the updated version of the Windows7 Slate device.

    I've got a feeling that device will be given similar treatment to what Microsoft did to Windows ME, remember that?

    Over here, one of our cellular providers call their plans 'Flex'. Knowing HP is in agreement with Sprint for 3G data, perhaps that what they will call their data plans?

    I'm having a feeling that the Flex will not be flexible as in the McKinney Display but rather flexible as in flexible usage options - something akin to the EeePad Transformer maybe.

    Does anyone think it would be feasible to have a dual PC/tablet beast? Basically like the transformer, but with real laptop / netbook guts (and not just a battery) in the keyboard section and a full-fledged TouchPad as the (removable) screen? So you can run windows as you would normally, switch over webOS and use it with the keyboard, or even go and pull out the screen and use it like the TouchPad it is.

    I want that. And I do think it would give you enough flexibility to warrant the 'flex' name.

    I'd also want a Courier-style TouchPad Twin.

    Serious? Why would you think that? I would think they would call that the Slate7 or something. Also, I do believe the Windows on tablets is done for HP - it's about HP WebOS now in this space.

    7" Touchpad, hurry up HP, we're waiting.

    My "guesses"

    TouchPadFlex = Wrist-based Tablet (HP has been playing with flexible screen tech)
    TouchPadPro = Heavy duty Tablet (for soldiers, etc)
    TouchPadTwin = TouchPad's Evil Brother (or Couriour-style stablet)
    TouchPadGeo = Vehicle in-dash Tablet (GPS, media, etc)
    TouchPad7 = 7" Tablet
    TouchPadGo = 5" Tablet

    In an architectural design forum there was some discussion about flexible displays for architectural drawings. Where the architects can roll up the device, take it to the site, unroll it, and show the contractors/clients. Something like the Corning video ad I posted where they had a flexible, transparent display fetching around.

    Heck...HP needs more Trademarked names!!!! I can think of a few:

    1. Audio Synergy
    2. Video Synergy
    3. Web Synergy
    4. eBook Synergy

    Okay I'm on Synergy stump, but if they aren't thinking about it it will never happen. Sorli...
