If you just need to do what the iPad does, get the WebOS device for a lot less.
    My dream: an HP Slate that dual-boots Win 7 and webOS. Win 7 with an active digitizer (i.e., a pen) allows me to continue to take notes with OneNote and have full-featured productivity with MS Office and such, while webOS gives me the fast-booting (once they fix that; my Win 7 desktop actually boots faster than my Pre ) and snappy browing, content consumption, etc. device.

    Best of both worlds. And, I'd happily pay more for the combination.

    Palm is still on track with their Hardware road map but I'm hoping there's a tablet in there so that HP can boost R&D on to get something out. Hopefully in less than one year.

    Overall, things are looking optimistic
    Agreed, but you've gotta admit, "harder" is just a little tiny bit easier to accomplish with mountains and mountains of cassssshh!

    I think this is the fastest-filling thread...evah!

    On topic though, I think this is a great idea. HP has a HUGE corporate footprint, and the money needed to push WebOS as an alternative to iPhone and Blackberry.

    The thing about Apple is increasingly the little walled-fortresses their devices have become. Insane DRM for music & books, draconian app store submission policies, unwillingness to entertain software like Flash. If HP can keep WebOS open and flexible, and build the dev community, they could really offer not only a different (and better) UI experience but a much better user experience.

    Oh, and my favorite photoshop regarding the merger comes from Engadget - check out the bad boy next to the Pixi.. =)

    You know what they might do, they could sell the HP Slate with Windows 7, and the Compaq brand could be used for tablets running WebOS, to differentiate them.

    if HP does it right, RIM could conceivably be the biggest loser here.

    What a joy to see on Engadget 4 of the 5 hot items in their header and the top 4 stories on the page are all pretty darn positive Palm stories.

    I think it's been deleted. This forum used to limit the number of smiley icons you could put in a message. That feature must be broken today.

    Who posted that mess?

    Sorry, couldn't resist

    Actually wanted to bring up HP's heavy corporate design background and how this might play into future WebOS devices.

    I'm happy WebOS is here to stay but just hope the next phone doesn't look like this!
