    There are some folks saying that some apps for the Pixi are not showing up as available for the Veer. I am thinking this could have to do with compatible (or lack of being listed as compatible) software version in the app info.
    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)...

    HP was supposed to update all compatible apps (anything listed for the Pixi) automatically. I know mine have the Veer listed, and I didn't do it.

    Good to know, I was just going off the quote below, in the following thread. I personally haven't verified anything.

I actually found 17 apps I wanted or needed that I didn't know existed and downloaded and ran them without issue. I certainly had all of the bases covered (news, utilities, games, social networking, etc.) and a few really cool ones that I like a lot.

    This is correct information. All Pixi apps were automatically updated to support the Veer.

    We would need to know specific instances where this didn't happen to further investigate.

    As I see the other thread mentioned I will add a note to that thread indicating this.

Palm said that Mojo apps would be supported, but that they'll run in a smaller window on the Touchpad. PDK apps will probably still have to be compiled to run on different screen sizes. It's possible that the Pre 3 will be able to run in a mode that emulates 320x480, so that would fix PDK apps. But I don't know for sure that Palm is going to do that.
    Real question is will you have to re-purchase to run on the Touchpad? I think that defeats touch to share if i have to buy twice.

    I remember HP saying that will depend on the developers weather you have to re-buy or not... but that was in January.

    In most cases you should't, there are always going to tablet versions of some things though, that you may want to rebuy for added features.
