Well, that day not only marked the introduction of the first webOS tablet – it marked the beginning of a new vision for webOS and an unprecedented opportunity for developers.

    I think you should have some promotions similar to what BlackBerry did for their PlayBook. That will definitely generate a lot of interest in developer community to create new apps for TouchPad as well as Pre 3.
