PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Microsoft had its annual financial analyst meeting on Thursday, and Steve Ballmer answered questions about what the company's answer to the iPad was going to be, and whether Windows Phone 7 was going to be a part of that product strategy. He said, "We're coming . . . We're coming full guns. The operating system is called Windows." Ballmer and Microsoft so don't get it. I can't believe Steve Ballmer is making me feel sorry for Microsoft.

webOS tablet

I am most excited about the potential of a webOS based tablet from HP. If you have used webOS for any extensive period of time you can see how great the UI model is for tablet style computing.

My only two concerns for this being the perfect solution for me personally are:

1. Price. Being an HP product and being that HP just spent a truckload of money on palm i have a feeling they are going to price this "HPalm Pad" device pretty high. My hopes are for a $399 price point. Anything else and they are going head to head vs the iPad on every front.

2 Apps. There are just barely enough apps to keep me interested in the palm app catalog for a smart phone. Let alone enough to create a full on tablet experience.
Can they get enough developers interested to remedy this ?

Sorry if this is a bit OT but im realy looking forward to this product from HP!
