    Still Developing....

    Edit: Might add that the tech world agrees webOS is superior to iOS, Steve Jobs himself praises webOS, it's simply underrated.

    An industry changing day for the tech world today.

    Apple is the biggest Tech company in the world, closely followed by Microsoft............they recently overtook them.

    900 dollars oh heck

    That will mean a price point of £649-£749 here depending on how much they want to cash in.

    Looks very nice. Device will live and die by developer support, will this catch on?

    The one thing that could shoot them in the foot is the wait for release..........by the time they release this in the summer i'd imagine the iPad 2 & Playbook will already be out.

    inb4 like every other tablet this year, it ends up not being better after all.

    Applications are key when it come's to consumer mindshare. People don't really give a rat's **** about specifications (Though this does have a new 1.2GHZ Dual core processor, Pre 3 has a 1.4GHZ!), just that it works well and easy to use, something Apple does very well.

    HP better be pushing these things to the Devs, usability wise webOS is the only other OS which is agreed upon to be better than iOS in many ways.

    Lololol.

    So OP , how many you bag ?, lol.

    But seriously, HP were rash and it may be just be an outlandish ploy; really bad move though; should have been restricted to 1 per vulture.
