    Just saw this video in my Youtube feed advertising an app for the iPad, it shows how Natasha Bedingfield warms up for her concerts using an iPad, but at 0:17 seconds you see her happily flashing a TouchPad, or so it seems to me... The rounded glossy plastic corners, the light strip on the left... Have a look!



    I think it's hilarious that the video is advertising an iPad app but she gleefully flashes a TouchPad...

    It doesn't necessarily have to be an actual app in the video. Looks like it is have simply held up the device with that image (picture) the screen.

    If you look at the bottom of the image on it's screen, you will see the controls from the Photo's app displayed on that bar.

    Either way, it's still funny that the video is advertising an iPad app and the TouchPad pops up!

    LOL... kinda like calling every brand of 'flying disc' a "frisbee". That name (iPad in this case) seems to encompass all tablets to some people. That name is the 'frisbee' name of the tablet world.

    Nice catch OP! Very funny "oops" moment for the commercial!

    my guess it's it's a version of the software for webos that was never released.

    Its a pre-release of Windows 8 running on a TouchPad using the iOS emulator. You can tell by the status ribbon on the bottom.

    It does look like a TouchPad to me as well. The thing is this app was supposed to be a TouchPad exclusive for a couple months, then eventually get released for iOS. Unfortunately the TouchPad got discontinued like 2 weeks later & I guess they decided to just release it on iOS.

    This whole story reminds me of the colossal disappointment I felt the day Leo "killed" webOS and what could've been. No wonder I stayed away from here so long, the pain is still so fresh...

    Wow. This whole thing with webOS and the Personal Systems Group has got to be one of the biggest corporate screw ups of all time. When I was studying business the big cautionary tale was New Coke. It'll be interesting to see in a few years whether this story gets added to the textbooks as well.
