    Much faster, newer version of WiFi. There are 4 major WiFi versions, A, B, G, and N. G is the second newest, and maxes out at 54Mbps. A faster version of G goes up to 108Mbps. But N runs (maximum, depends which draft/final specs were used) at either 150Mbps, 300Mbps, or 600Mbps. It helps you out if you have a really fast incoming connection and your WiFi hobbles it a bit, but it truly helps out if you're doing transfers over your WiFi network (since it can run the transfers faster between your devices)

    Yeah, the Evo came capable of running n, but for some reason HTC had chosen to limit it to g.

    After much complaining from users they enabled it, with the last update.

    So, when I first got mine, I tested it both ways, using wifi for awhile, before I installed the update and there is a noticeable difference.

    I think N is pushing the limits of WiFi. I have an N router, but running it in N mode causes the connections to constantly drop.

    Also, if you are connecting via WiFi, you are probably connecting to a router with an Internet connection that is slower than 54Mbps, so N provides no speed benefits unless you are transferring data over the LAN.
    Touchscreens are a fad.

    It DOES support touch-2-share. I believe it was talked about on feb 9. the following link also talks about it.

    According to the TouchPad overview page on hp.com it definitely has the TTS ability:

    TouchPad | Laptop TouchPad, TouchPad Computer Tablet PC

    Specifically see foot note #8 on the page

    "8. Requires HP TouchPad with webOS 3.0 and Pre3 or Veer with webOS 2.2 or higher, both products having the same HP webOS account. Viewing URL web page content requires data connection via Wi-Fi or cellular connection."

    Yeah, at the time I was going by Precentral's article which said it didn't have the communication coils, but it has since been said multiple times that the Veer does do touch-to-share, so my previous post is incorrect.

    15.1/10.85 = 1.39 or 39% Thicker not 50%

    But clearly I am the troll.

    Thanks, but...I think when we are talking a difference of millimetres it is helpful to be precise

    Well, by September the Pre 3 and Veer should be out in the wild with many reviews to help you decide if you want to stay or move to the HTC.

    All I can say is that my Pre 2 has me happy staying with webOS. I'd like to move up to the Pre 3 only because of auto-focus and the larger 3.6" screen.
