Apple Yeah I was quite busy yesterday, and nobody else picked it up, so we didn't report on the launch of the iPad 2. Since other websites went completely bonkers over this, we'll keep it short: there's a new iPad out. It's thinner, has a dual-core processor, faster graphics, and has a "new" case developed by Incase Apple. Contrary to all the "later this year" announcements from the likes of HP and RIM, Apple is shipping this thing March 11.

Do you know a little company called HP? Yeah, Palm could not have the guts to push their system forward, but I seriously doubt HP is here just to play

Those kind of smart platforms are valuable because of apps. Windows dominates because of apps.

HP has to either entice(Apple, Adnroid) or pay off developers(Microsoft WP7 apps) to get things started.

Apple got the benefit of being the first "blowout" smartphone OS that had a proper app repo and reasonably cheap development tools(I'm looking at you Symbian....)

Android has a s***load of Java developers at a standby.

HP will have to pay some high profile developers...

As I've always said... it's not about the platform, but about what you can run on it. (And I'm talking about apps that are out there RIGHT NOW, not what the potential of a thing is.) Most geeks still don't understand this.
