TABLET AND SMARTPHONE MAKER - and still the flogger of expensive printer ink - HP demonstrated the 'touch sync' feature between its Pre 3 device and its Touchpad tablet to The INQUIRER today.

The very impressive touch synchronisation feature that allows the Pre 3 to synchronise data between the Touchpad tablet and the Pre 3 smartphone has rightly gotten a lot of attention. HP told us that it was made possible thanks to induction, much in the same way that wireless power operates.

Both the Pre 3 and the Touchpad were running the production release of WebOS 3. HP confirmed to The INQUIRER that while it is launching the Touchpad later today, it will release the Pre 3 later. µ
