    TouchPad connects with Pre minus running 2.1 over bluetooth and can take calls presumably as Bluetooth Hands-Free Profile device

    Here are the pictures in the German forum. I was also kinda surprised to see that they all read PreCentral. At least enough to want to try out the new Angry Birds thing in the blog post

    Profile sharing with 2.1 Pre minus works including all free and paid apps. Apps run like expected in Phone emulation mode.
    swipe up gesture works for launcher.

    What surprised me is:
    Und da ja die Profile seit neustem auch für mehrere Geräte geeignet sind, ist mein Pre immer noch voll.
    Means:
    Since the profile is capable of syncing to multiple devices my pre still is untouched.

    Seems he synced his pre- running 2.1 with the same profile as the touchpad.

    I just ask him if this is true. Here the answer:
    Habe ich gemacht und zum Glück geht das.

    Nur der App Catalog will nicht funktionieren. Vorhin ließ er sich noch öffnen, jetzt geht gar nix mehr. Vielleicht sind die da etwas überlastet.
    Translation:
    Yes I used the same profile and it works. Only the appcatalog is not working now. Some time before it worked.

    I didn't expect that you already can use the same profile with a 2.1 device.

    yes that's great, so no hoping for a release of 2.2 for those legacys, profile sharing works out of the box for 2.1 devices.

    what is the version and build number for the webOS it came with? And did it offer an updated version or say that it's still the most current version? I want to compare it to what I find at Best Buy

    erh of course... hey all pres/pixis/veers (except for the pre2) exist with localized hardware layout, so i would be really surprized if they for no reason crippled localization on webos3

    the only thing i wonder is if its switchable on the fly.

    Well, its not proper localization so far because some countries got more letters in their alphabet than a UK/US layout meaning they have to tap the SYM-key quite a bit to be able to type in there native language.


    Look at this picture of the Touchpads German keyboard layout.




    Compare it to a proper German QWERTZ-layout.



    Notice how the Touchpad lack three letters (next to the letters P and L).
    I can understand why these were omitted on the tiny hardware keyboards of the Pre and Pixi but on tablets with virtual keyboard space ain't as limited.

    Im not sure how a virtual keyboard for a German Android or iPad tablet looks like but on the Swedish versions you get a full keyboard.
