After skimming through the interface of the new HP webOS tablet I wanted to share my first impressions. To start with my overall feeling: webOS on the HP-Palm Touchpad offers a basic set of functionalities and navigation. That makes the TouchPad an ideal tablet for users that are looking for an easy-to-use device without too much advanced options.
Some days ago I had my hands on the new Android 3.0 and I would like to share my first impression and how the UI differs from the iPad interface. Actually Honeycomb looks good, the overall look and feel is smooth and it has its own identity.
Everywhere you look there are events involving the iPad and Tablet Publishing. If there's one event to attend to learn more about Tablet Publishing, make sure you mark your calendars and plan on attending WoodWing's World Tour stop in San Francisco on March 9 at the Hyatt Hotel. The brightest and the best of Tablet Publishing will be on hand. And best of all it's free.
Yesterday Google revealed details about the upcoming Android 3.0 aka Honeycomb release. WoodWing's Digital Magazine App optimized for Android 3.0 was one of Google's showcase Apps!
As you probably know this will be the first Android release developed with tablets in mind. The user-interface is a big step forward and the Xoom device is powerful enough to present a very smooth Digital Magazine experience.
It's nice to see that Google is taking a bit of a different approach than Apple. Whereas Apple goes for the ultimate simplicity, Google goes for a bit more computer-oriented approach with a desktop concept and widgets. This isn't a matter of right or wrong, this will partly attract another audience which is a good thing to further speed up the tablet revolution.
We're looking forward to the release, so publishers can start using our Android 3.0 optimized App.
