Engadget’s Live Coverage From HP’s ‘Think Beyond’ WebOS Event

Looks like the “Palm” brand is dead, but that makes sense from HP’s perspective. The news thus far:

  • The HP Veer is an upcoming credit-card-sized WebOS phone (sure isn’t credit-card-thin, though).
  • The Pre 3 looks fast, but isn’t coming until “summer”.
  • The TouchPad is physically almost identical to an iPad. The software looks really good. It really seems like WebOS was meant for a device like this.

Best demo: tapping a Pre phone against the TouchPad to transfer an open web page from the TouchPad to the Pre.
