Shoud HP launch the TouchPad/Pre 3 together ?
A Tablet and a smartphone, everyone might say different worlds different markets.
For a tablet HP might not need phone carriers operators as with an smartphone.
The Touch to Share feature that allows to share a web site between the HP Pre3 and the TouchPad is making a differentiation in front to the competition.
At this time no tablet and smartphone manufacturer around the world have that technology.
HP has promoted in several videos on youtube Touch to Share showing both devices working together:
3 days ago arstechnica Poll Technica: do the new TouchPad videos have you lusting for one? started a poll with these questions, which the results at this time are:
Although the sample size is not showed but in percentage, the results are not so encouraging to buy immediately the TouchPad by the consumer, until they read a review first , after the TouchPad is launched.

The technology gadget consumer likes to show up the neighbors what they don´t have, despite a device is focused for business and enterprise as well.
The neighbors might have just a tablet, but it doesn´t work together with an smartphone as HP´s do with the Touchstone technology.
HP should find the way to fix the launch of the Better together working devices , offering them as a bundle, this July 1st.
At this point the demand of them is splitted.
