HP's yesterday “Think Beyond” event now on YouTube
HP/Palm's “Think Beyond” event yesterday was a milestone for webOS after the acquisition of Palm by HP. The good old Pre 2 suffered delays, which, coupled with the advent of Windows Phone 7, put a question mark to HP/Palm's ambitions for the third spot in mobile operating systems. Jon Rubinstein, however, had a pair of handsets in his pockets to try to convince us that HP has the software and hardware to compete.
HP presented the newest HP Pre 3 with a 1.4 GHz processor and a 3.6-inch screen and its smaller webOS counterpart, the HP Veer. It also unveiled the exciting HP TouchPad, the first webOS tablet, sized just like the iPad, but expected with a dual-core Qualcomm CPU and 1GB of RAM. What about their performance? Check out the full video of the “Think Beyond” event below and see the latest webOS in action.

Really nice and impressive. If I don't own an ipad, I probably would go for this one. But I already have lots of ipad apps that I use every day, that it would be hard for me to let go of my ipad. Great job HP.

I actually took the time to watch/listen to all but the last few minutes. I'm quite impressed by where HP is taking webOS. As a BlackBerry user, holding off on the PlayBook initially so I can see the new BlackBerry devices coming later this year, it will likely coincide with the Pre3 rollout too. I'll be giving webOS a serious look.
