    So true now that HP bought Palm. My wife has the Palm Pre, and I am not very impressed with WebOS. But, it is at least a good start.

    This was a good deal for HP. MS is not in a driver seat because they are building a product. They have to rely on another company to build "it". Wonder what we will see with this new agreement with HTC.

    I have had a Palm Pre since June and it works great. Not a lot of Apps but it is a phone so I really don't care. I can get access to the value of all of my portfolios through yahoo finance by using the built in web browser and Flash is coming to it before the end of the year.

    If HP puts a lot of polishing on the Web OS and places it on a Tablet the iPad will have some serious competition.

    Microsoft will focus their efforts on [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ttgx9ygMXz8"]Surface Computing[/ame] which when implemented in the consumer market in desks, tables, and counter tops will be the leading technology. The iPad is extremely small in comparison to this.

    The next leap forward will come in the last half of this decade and that will be voice recognition.

    I am just waiting for the lawsuits against Apple to start after people permanently damage their fingers from overuse of the iPad.

    It will happen!

    I think this is bad for the ipad in the long term. If there isn't competition, there isn't a real reason that Apple is pushed to make it better. Even if the slate and courier were crappy products, there would have been something that was a good feature.

    I don't think so, Apple has invested lots of money into this platform. True competition will not exist until a quality product is introduced with a great UI. By the time that happens the iPad will have such a strong following it will be tough to put a dent in its marketshare. Apple is constantly working to their products

    I understand what you are trying to say, thing is competition can be good to help lower prices for the consumer however I don't think lack of competition will have any impact overall on the iPad evolving to be better and better
