    I was just looking at the newly revamped Palm website and when looking over the TouchPad accessories, I came across this posted right below them:

    Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 coming Spring 2011 on DVD, Blu-ray™ and On Demand.

    So awesome... HP flexing the muscles. Now they need to work on the advertising and pull out all stops

    I thought they mentioned at the event that there'd be a video store.

    Yep... but this is the first confirmation I've seen that they have it close to rolling out with the device

    I can see it now. Double commercial for touchpad/WebOs and Deathly Hallows Part 2.

    It would feature HP (Harry Potter) fans waiting anxiously outside a theater for the midnight showing of Part 2 while watching Part 1 on their TouchPads. Plus something like 'at HP we're true HP fans.'

    sorry for correction but that 10 is actually a footnote which says at the bottom:
    "10. Third-party software available separately. Within wireless coverage area only. Requires data services at additional cost. Not all apps available on all devices."

    So its a third party software for all it says.
    Technological superiority has never won a product battle. If that were the case we would all be flying in supersonic Concordes and using Apple computers.

    The key to winning the battle is a combination of price, convenience, marketing, sound business model and a bit of luck.

    Ok, I'd be lying if I said this wasn't sexy. And Harry Potter is Warner Bros, which have typically been hold outs for lots of services like Netflix, etc. They work with iTunes, but I'm not sure of their availability beyond that. If HP/Palm has gotten them, then I wouldn't be surprised if they get many, many more studios, too.

    This is good news getting big name studios on board with HP WebOS. Great publicity!

    I just hope the HP Movie Store is not in place of not being able to have a Netflix and Hulu app. Those 2 apps are a necessity to compete. I already pay monthly for those services to watch on my Roku, PS3, and netbook. Why would I want to pay for on demand video unless it is something that neither service has? The more options the better! Here's hoping for a Netflix and Hulu App @ launch!

    During Think Beyond Dreamworks was the first studio HP announced for their movie store. Once one studio jumps on board it's dominos.
    Are you trying to hurt me?

    Netflix and Hulu being US-Only, I speak for the gross majority of mankind when I say that having a different video-on-demand scheme would be preferable.

    That makes perfect sense but I must agree having all 3 is best!
