    ooOOoh, this looks promising. I'm definitely getting this. Forget Touchpad 2.

    Good thing that HP isn't wasting their money to put webOS on HP PC. Once Windows 8 comes out, nobody will be using webOS on windows, they will just use Windows8.

    .......... This. Is. Going. To Be. The It.

    I thought I wanted a Touchpad 2 but- this really puts it in perspective. Well- I'm done on this forum. Bye everybody!

    If it works on the HP Touchpad I'd buy it, not because I don't like webOS but because its future is uncertain.

    Thanks for the video, I shared it on G+.

    I'd bet my touchpad that Windows 8 ARM editions will be OEM pre-installed only.

    I really dont expect you to be able to buy an off-the-shelf copy of Windows 8 and install it on your touchpad, i'd love to be wrong...

    With that spec, I am not sure how well it will run but I am sure it will be less buggy and way more features than webOS.

    How does this tell us if it'll run on our touchpads?

    I find it extremely unlikely that the embedded ARM variant(s) of windows 8 will be made available to typical end users to buy and install on their own devices. Any more than Windows CE or Windows phone/mobile/whatever it's called. It's made for embedded devices and hardware compatibility will be limited. Just look at MS's own recent track record for windows mobile/phone updates, causing massive issues on hardware targeted at their own platform.

    At some point maybe a developer somewhere will get access and get it to a point that it's compatible but I can't imagine many people interested enough to spend the time given the amount of work involved, and even then there would be licensing fees for distribution.

    A Windows release that's not buggy? the sun will probably explode!

    They just showed an ARM tablet.


    Honestly, to me, Windows 8 looks a lot like a highly evolved version of webOS: Gestures and swiping, 'contracts' aka synergy/universal search, swipe from the side to switch through apps, etc.

    as with many similar things you will no doubt get a ton of people aquiring it, slapping it on their touchpad then crying/moaning on the forums when they say their ABC/XYZ program/game doesnt work, coz they expect all old "windows" x86 stuff to magically work on an ARM system.

    I'd much rather a Windows 8 port than a Android port anyway!

    I used many OSs in my time. I have to say webOS was the buggiest OS I've ever used. And company hardly ever fix anything in time. I didn't say windows is the bugless OS, I said it has less bug than webOS.

    Honestly, Windows8 is nothing like webOS. Just because it has gesture, please don't related it to the webOS. Windows had universal search.

    Very nice, win8 tablet makes iOS & Android look dates visually.

    I'm not saying they're the same, I'm saying they have similar concepts. "Contracts" taking in your photos from any sources online, and making them available to any application with a file picker, being able to plug in to search any application that you want, etc.

    And yes, I know Windows 7 has 'universal search' but it works differently from what they've shown in 7.

    Believe me, the start menu Instant Search is my favorite feature in Vista and Windows 7, but they've added the search plugin capability like webOS.

    Once I get my Windows 8 Tablet, this Touchpad is going in the trash.
