    It's a really nice feature that hopefully WebOS team could integrate something like this on the next version of WebOS software. I think that they need to expand the capabilities of the Touch-to-share technology to support more protocols that just sending URL's. If anyone looks at the new Samsung phone Galaxy SIII, it similarly copied some feature with its S-Beam and the other feature of WiFi-Direct.

    Anyways, while it would be cool to see WebOS team tackle such a strategy for the future of this nice WebOS platform. It's not so lucky for those people who owns older devices that doesn't support that touch-to-share feature natively like the Palm Pre 2(like the one I owned).

    Dual touchstone support? The touchpad already does remember what exhibition app was running on each touchstone you dock it to. It would surprise me if open webOS has the drivers necessary to work tap2share. Pleasant surprise.

    This video is either a really early brainstorming type video for the Touchpad, or more likely one for another device altogether. He kept saying "HP Slate" running WebOS. This most likely is about the idea of the hybrid PC / WebOS device that they originally intended to make. When you consider the word "slate" and the form factor it really points to this conclusion.



    Funny I was able to get to the page to view the video when I first clicked on the link. Going back I am unable to load that page via the link or even my history.

    No the Slate is the name for HP original pads. I dont rememb they intended to originally make an hybrid. Back to 2009 HP has been working on a Windows 7 tablet "The Slate". With Palm acquisition and Windows 7 issues on mobile devices (battery life, bulky design, non touchfriendly UI) they decided to go for an ARM/webOS tablet for the public (code name Topaz aka Touchpad) and kept "The Slate" for a confidential Professional market.

    Here's the video.

    And yes the touchstone specific exhibition already exists:

    Thanks for a new link to the video!



    Yes the HP slate was a Windows 7 tablet PC, And yes the Touchpad was an ARM/WebOS device.

    However, In the video the narrator states "HP Slate running WebOS". So I surmised this meant a Windows tablet PC which would run WebOS as well. This Idea is not much of a leap if you keep in mind that HP announced their intention of running WebOS in one form or another on a windows PC.

    Perhaps you remember this:
    McKinney: webOS to be integrated with Windows on PCs

    So if I read your post correctly HP was intending to revamp the Slate in a WebOS version for enterprise?
