Alright, anyone who thinks tablets don't matter needs to visit an airport and take a flight. Count the number of people who carry iPads. Chances are good that you'll be sitting by one. It's just the norm now. iPads will continue to proliferate and make laptops and that netbook fad less appealing.

WebOS isn't dead. HP is done with webOS. They're still trying to license it..i have no idea who would take the reigns at this point, but webOS is NOT dead in the water.

Well, I got a refund for my HP TouchPad. It was within the return window, and HP's press release gave me an extremely pessimistic view on webOS. I've heard HP say they're gonna license it, but I think the webOS faithful will fizzle out before a new device is released, if ever.

It feels like a heart has been stabbed, as I liked the device, but I couldn't justify shelling out $400 with the instability of the webOS ecosystem at this time. It looks like I'll be searching for a 16 GB at $150 or a 32 GB at $200, preferably the 32 GB. If I can't get one at those prices, I'll be throwing my money into Philote II.

The press release from HP says they're only getting out of hardware development, they are not getting out of webOS entirely. This means HP still has the software, and until HP says otherwise, I'm gonna assume HP will either make webOS go forward internally or license it out.

Of course, I'm pessimistic on this, unless HP finds someone to license or sell webOS soon. If they don't find someone to license or sell webOS to within the next few months, then it'll be dead.

Even if webOS is dead, 1.2B is a bargain for Palm's patent portfolio. Apple backed off suing Palm due to Palm leaking some of it's patents. Some of Palm's patents can be seen here.

clearly there's not a space for another mobile OS like WebOS and Windows Phone 7

I view them as entertainment devices. They are definitely not productivity devices--not by a long shot. Some might disagree, and say that they can do everything they need on their tablet that would otherwise be using a netbook for, but for REAL productivity...they are not those sorts of devices.

I have an ASUS TF, and I like it for what it is--a simple, light, portable media player and web browser. With a few extra little neat things. But that's about it. And despite the fast-advancing Tegra-2/3-esque processors, it's still a long ways from being anything that will replace contemporary laptops. You still need a keyboard if you want to do anything remotely productive (yes, I know people will storm in and yell that they can use the on-screen keyboard just as well), but then you also need the applications that require abilities far beyond Google Doc's or Polaris office. Then you run into program compatibility issues. Lots of things.

They're fun toys. For the moment, that's about it.

Isn't that illegal to do? (Watching tv shows/movies while driving?) I had an in dash mini tv in the front and it even has a warning screen stating something like this if I recall...
