PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless So, we have the iPad out and about for a while now, doing its thing, most likely selling well. Of course, others want a piece of that pie as well, so we see tablets pop up all over the place, most of which are either ultra-low budget junk or vapourware (how that's Adam coming along, Notion Ink?). Earlier this year, Steve Ballmer proudly held up HP's Windows 7-powered Slate - but then, HP bought Palm, canned the Slate, promised a webOS tablet, and then resurrected the Slate as an enterprise product. Now we have a video of the Windows 7-powered Slate. Let's compare it to Samsung's detailed overview of its Galaxy Tab, and see ever so clearly why HP canned the darn thing in the first place.

I'm very interested to see what a Pre tablet looks like as well. I think HP certainly made the right move in picking up webOS in order not to end up being just another Android/WinMo7 hardware vendor, and if they can execute it will be good for everyone. Pre/webOS actually has innovative ideas that don't look like a somewhat less polished Apple knock-off. ;)
