    looks awesome! I hope webos and android take hints at more gesturing.

    It is interesting to couple this with the potential of dropping the home button and using the area below the screen as a gesture area to conrol things....

    Apple will call it - Apple Sauce -

    HP/Palm will call it "W T F" (What the Fruit)

    If I read one more friggin blog about the iPad/iPhone removing the Home button and possibly using gestures, I'm gonna puke. "Hey, maybe they'll do something like Andriods "Back" button?"

    C'mon. We've been on this forever. Back. Swipe. I dont know how many times I slide my thumb across my iTouch.

    No love.

    I did the same thing when I tried to use my wife's iTouch. I tried multiple gestures and got really frustrated. Makes you appreciate gestures, you can get to where you want to go much faster.

    I'm glad Apple invented it.

    I dont care who thought of it 1st, 2nd or 3rd, in my opinion Palm revolutionized gestures, multitasking, cards and synergy on smartphones almost 2yrs ago. B/c the company was in financial trouble, they couldnt coner the market with these features.

    Now that HP owns this technology, I think it would be nice to see them market these features and whatever else (Enyo, etc) they have up their sleeves like there is no tomorrow. Gestures, synergy, cards, true multitasking (as defined by many webOS users) should be engraved in consumers head and associated with HP webOS products. It is NOT too late to do this, since HP has the budget, relationships, standings in the market, etc to make it happen.

    If HP doesnt do this, the trend is showing that RIMM, Google and Apple are moving quickly to fill the void and I am sure many customers and reps will see this as the future of smartphones/tablets, although Palm introed it on the Pre in 2009.

    Well everyone knows Rim is copying webOS by the cards feature I remember seeing a video on youtube in CES claiming that they are cards as well and now look at what else I find Rumor: Apple removing Home Button on the next iPad and iPhone? | TiPbGestures for the iphone? I wonder where they got that from now

    Looks like Apple is adding some much needed elegance to their multitasking UI in iOS 4.3. Not ground breaking, VERY familiar, and should have done this from the start. The four - five finger pinch to zoom the launcher is interesting, but not sure how useful.

    Acutally I was expect more to combat the UI assault coming from Playbook, Honeycomb, and that other TBA tablet.
    It is very needed and I wondered how they are going to be changing their UI for multitasking. I knew the double tap was a quick edit, and they were planning more features that better suits Apple style.

    HP Palm will not bring a patent war -- assuming they did patent the gestures (which I am sure they did, if they could that is) -- unless RIM sued them for fringing one of their patents. This could help HP battle Apple with the trademark "the App Store" since Apple currently has it where no one else can use that term.

    Also, since webOS cards are in the shape or a square/rectangle, any company from here on out that uses a similar shaped screen (every phone known to man) and has it's apps switch from one to another, will be accused of stealing webOS' cards view.

    Ridiculous. My $0.02.

    Edit - Maybe Palm webOS stole gestures from the Opera web browser! Point being nothing is original today, companies innovate off one another and there isn't a thing wrong with it. If you don't want your ideas taken, patent them.
    Apple has been using this for a while. Thats very true. But Apple did not think about putting into their iPhone until after four generations went by. Palm thought out of the box and came up with it. However, Palm created a standard and it was only a matter of time for other companies to follow suit. It's time to create another standard.

    Palm is soo the sega dreamcast of today

    Palm revolutionized gestures.
    That is a amazingly good point. But I fear by the time anything happens it will be too late.

    A. Im really looking forward to this update for my ipad

    B. I dont think they r going to get rid of the home button

    C. I dont think they will add a gesture area to the bezel of any i device.

    I like the gesture area on my pre, but if apple removed the home button and added a gesture area, they would have to explain how to navigate the device to every potential customer in their stores. I think having advanced gestures is good, and customers can figure those out later, but the advantage of keeping the home button also is to keep the device dead simple.
