On this morning -- Hewlett-Packard's new touch -- tablet hits the store shelves today and Clinton's got one -- I do indeed what about it and told what about it well it's exciting you know it is Charles the -- the -- you know really excited what when HP stock did you remember they last year they acquired home.
And they bought their software webos which is what was running on those really.
Kind of really hamper hardware Palm Pre phones it was an exciting it didn't really take off but it was a hardware finally now.
HP has a product with hardware to boot.
They have webos a new version of webos which is the software I don't know what -- talk about so let me play this thing do that.
On iPad doesn't do what that does it does have flash on and -- -- watch slash videos so I can go to web sites and watch flash videos that you wouldn't necessarily be able to watch on the iPad but look here's what I like what -- doing.
It's competing it's not trying to compete with apple on its -- territory what it's trying to do now is go after the enterprise market.
Which is smart it's very much like the ninety's -- Steve Jobs came back to apple -- to look we don't need to compete with Microsoft.
And only one of -- wins we can work together and actually do something in interest being in the technologies -- what's flash.
Flash is that is that it's a total -- movies on to on the computer right in thank you would hear what's the enterprise market.
Well the enterprise market is for businesses -- see the idea of having one.
Place -- tablet that they can say you know what the ipads for the kids in him that out to be kids they're gonna be playing with different games.
We're gonna make that we're gonna make the touchpad.
For the doctors.
These sales force team that's gonna go out -- 4000 strong and show off hip joints and things for our company and sell these types of things.
And they see that as a play in a market that I -- iPad can do that iPad can do it.
But again great but they're not trying to here's what I like -- and they're saying apple has market dominance when I'm gonna try to beat apple and its own game we're gonna try to carve out her own niche in the space of something that android tablets haven't been able to do.
You have all this fragmentation from Google -- 170.
Different android devices -- of them do one thing seven of them do another thing here you have HP.
That owns the hardware and now they on the software does that sound familiar that's causing another company something apple apple owns -- hardware and owns the software is the litmus test.
Would you buy an iPad all one of these things -- -- the touch -- if you will adult to.
A doctor well I have to say in 2011.
I'd still buy an iPad in 2012.
And everyone's playing catch up this year everyone who releases a taboo in 2011 no one will be able to compete with the -- and 2011.
I would not -- however given a year and all of these companies -- -- the dust we'll start to settle because competition is good.
Are you sure about that because Apple's brand is so dominant especially in the iPad have got the first generation iPad I'd love it so how does HP which that's great brand recognition in terms of your printers and and other hardware how to think breakthrough had -- -- -- name recognition for the touchpad.
I think that they don't try to compete with apple on its own turf and -- they make this into professional net -- and I think the software this is the first time that a company -- develops software for one of these devices that's.
I think many ways more elegant than when Apple's been able to do.
Really excited with multitasking having different apps available but I can switch between an apple doesn't have the the elegance of this software -- -- year.
Well you know what -- Stewart and let me just make an analogy look at a bit Romney is the iPad that this is the John hunt that's good that's good -- the I don't.
I understand they're very good thanks Veronica thanks for elevating the level -- name recognition -- -- on.
Eight -- that look at let's that this could it be turmoil at a Blackberry company Research in Motion employees.
Calling for a change at the top.
We're gonna talk about it next few figure it's gonna -- all we have Austin and to put it off.
