    Did she bring up owning a webos phone? I could see the sales guy saying it's "like" WebOS if she had prior experience.
    wife has an evo. I have the pre. She used my pre to play games all the time before she had her evo and just had a centro.

    Guys, I love cards, but they belong to Palm about as much as the term "app store" belongs to Apple.
    from my limited exp with the playbook, its more than just cards. the interface even looks very similar.

    one good thing about the playbook: it will teach people how to use gestures and cards.

    it's unfortunate that rimm will be the one to get credit for developing that UI.

    oh well, like they say, 'you snooze you loose.' wake up hp!

    Gah, see, it's happening to me too! Darn you, RIM!

    HP has to bring attention to the public that the cards metaphor came two years earlier with webOS. People can't come to believe that RIM is responsible for this awesome UI design.

    I think HP will not let people get confused given their advertising budget.
    This is a very good reason they did not come out with a small one because they Can have a commercial that says the 10 inch TouchPad is also compatible with Pre3 and Veer. People will likely not confuse them when the TP is released. My hunch.

    I too am in the camp that HP is sitting and waiting, having drafted up some papers and keeping them on hold. It won't be for copying the interface specifically but for a general advertising (even if unofficial) of this as a web OS, which is misleading.
    ...This programming stuff is actually addictive but really hard :/
