    The multitasking is a killer feature. Somehow HP and before Palm were brain dead at marketing this elegant feature.

    Different messages for different audiences - that was a corporate marketing pitch rather than for a consumer (i.e. us).

    I thought Bradley did a good job and provided an insight into HP's thinking - one foot in the consumer electronics space and the other with the corporate enterprise and they are clearly looking at both.

    On air/to camera product demos can go badly wrong - especially with a senior Exec who probably hasn't seen that much of the hardware himself - right decision to keep him away from it - best not even talk about it.

    Overall I thought it was a good effort and I will circulate the content amongst my corporate colleagues. When the iPad first appeared we looked at it closely - the lack of Enterprise security features eliminated it (it is a consumer product only after all). The HP stance is different and we are curious to see what it is like.

    To those that are grumbling about the lack of a video-out, HP are angling for a different market right now - they make great laptops for that kind of thing so why add confusion would be their logic.

    The no edit part is still a rumor! HP officially said the TouchPad would have it. For all we know the anonymous tipster could have been an iSheep Troll

    I want a tablet, but I don't want to join the iCult just to have one. Love webOS and don't want to learn a different OS.

    That's why I'm adopting early, but buying at Best Buy, so in 6-12 months when the fully realized touchpad comes out, I'll take my day 1 TP back and apply the buyback toward TP2.
    Palm III -> Palm m500 -> Zire 71 -> Zire 72 -> Treo 700p -> Palm Pre Minus -> TWO Touchpads 16gb -. and unfortunately, a Motorola Photon 4G...

    You can't, if you work for many (most?) large corporations. Putting anything into the "cloud" will get you fired. You also can't put stuff into the cloud if you are on a train/plane/subway, with no connectivity. For the 17 million people in my city, I see tablets mostly used in those situations. The WSJ or the NYT just reviewed the latest chromebook last week, and concluded that the cloud just wasn't ready yet.

    Let's hope this issue is resolved soon. If not at launch, then soon after.

    I am tired. Why can't anyone at HP keep repeating the mantra

    Clean UI, True Multitasking, Synergy and Just Type.
    TouchPad unlike any other tablet.

Go over and comment in the Manny commercial thread for that.
    This... CNBC isn't exactly G4/ESPN/etc
    I love physical keyboards... but there is two devices that would make me consider a slab, one is something running a full version of Open webOS. The other is an iPhone!!!! HA HA just kidding (about the iPhone that is)...

    I agree, I guess he was opt in responding to the regular business questions. However HP should be telling their multitasking story whenever they get TV time.

    Bradley sounded alot like a polotition. They never really answer hard questions, they just sit there and explain their position.

    If by "Polotition" you mean Politician then yes, I would have to agree with you.

    Thanks for the transcript, but this part is a bald-faced lie. Touchpads run Enyo apps, phones run Mojo apps. They are not the same.

    Uhmmm the phones are going to be running Enyo. The concept he was pushing is that by the time HP is shipping WebOS on PC's, Enyo will be on TP's, Phones, and PC's.

    I know in the tech world it's a long time, but we are 6 months away from 2012.

    It won't have it. Talking with an HP employees from that group:

    Me: There are rumors that document editing won't be available at launch. Is this true? Since Feb 9th, you all have been saying editing with Quick Office is part of the base solution and will be on the TouchPad.

    HP: You are correct, it will not be there on July 1st.

    Me: ok, thanks.
