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.

Yes, webOS is (still) a great user experience. I hope HP does well with (and by) it.

I'm quite impressed with the MeeGo tablet user experience, though. I especially like the near-endless vertical area (sort of multi-desktop, but without the borders) with quick scrolling on the right, and the app / document quick-scrolling on the left. This makes great use of wide screens, IMHO.

Of course, the remarkable openness is nice, too. :-)
