    This looks more like a possible Windows OS with the multiple blocks of information on the screen at once.

    The bezel is pretty much required due to the technological and durability limitations of larger portable LCD screens. If you dropped it, you'd snap not only the glass but the LCD screen, tripling the repair costs. You can do this with an LCD/LED TV because it's mounted, but when it comes to portables above smartphone size it just isn't feasible yet if you want to keep the device light enough to compete.

    Which makes this concept pretty much useless from a real-world perspective, unfortunately.

    Althought I agree (the thin bezel is aesthetically pleasing) I think it would hinder functionality, i.e. how would you hold the tablet without interfering with the touchscreen? But i do agree, it looks soooo sweet.

    I agree I have worked in the auto industry for years concepts are like dreamy presentations to make people excited.Looks like it is working!! Until HP can come up with a balance of cost to build and SUPPORT after sales are made they will be held with skeptacism from a market that researches products.Plenty negative imbedded on the net relating to HP's handling there touchpad.In defense they made mistakes and the profits margin was horrible.But knee jerk reactions over and over again are just pushing the other tablets in to solid holds on the market.Oh yeah Web Os is awesome.

    I like the shape and screen size/body border ratio, looks very much like a Samsung Galaxy SII phone

    I agree. This looks more like a concept of a Windows 8 design.

    Note the:
    - widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio
    - tiled interface idea

    HP has already stated that they are throwing in support behind Windows 8 devices so it would not be a stretch to think that this is a concept device for the later half of 2012. We'll see what gets shown at CES very soon.

    Widgets to me have been the poor-man's way of presenting multiple items to you easily (ie multitasking). webOS' strength is in true multitasking quickly and if they are giving up cards for widgets, then I would be disappointed.

    Yes, I also think a 16:9 display is only useful for videos -- and maybe for this widget thingy, which is NOT what I want being the new core design for webOS!

    Take the screen with the glass back from the new HP Spectre for the next TouchPad.

    Widgets are the reason why I'd never switch from Android to WebOS for a phone's OS. I can see news articles as they come in, facebook feeds updated, weather at a glance, music player options in locked up mode, and all without having to open up the app. It's so much better on a phone than the cards thing. It saves me time and it's easier. On a tablet, I don't need widgets because that's what my phone's for....information at a glance on the go.

    Isn't this similar to glimpse?

    Looks nice, but you need a bezel to hold it, otherwise you're going to activate GUI controls with your thumbs.

    Are there any tablets without bezels today? I think not, and this is most likely the reason why.

    Playbook has a relatively huge bezel, but uses it for various gestures (it's part of the touch sensitive area). Smart move on RIM's part...

    several important points:
    1. First of all, Just type commands are at the core of webOS to start anything.
    2. The home screen gives way to customizable widgets using the native webOS applications like email, messaging, music, documents as well as third party applications. An application could use a "widget" mode to make it possible for the user to interact directly from the main screen.
    3. Button to display the application icons undergoes a facelift but remains in the same place, at the bottom right.
    4. Further information available at the bottom of the screen like battery power, disk space, ...
    5. There is also a native integration (bottom left) of HP Cloud Services (for what services ?)


    I think these ideas are really sweet ! do you ?

    Yuck. I'd hate for webos to start emulating some weird windoze/android widget hybrid. A better UI would be to keep the card UI, but take advantage of the screen real estate to maybe display stacks of cards on the left when in landscape mode.
