Yes, we've already put our hands-on the TouchPad, but the unreleased device is a hot commodity so you should be surprised we headed over to HP's booth this morning, gave a warm hello to @twtomcat, and shot us another video of the webOS 3 tablet. What's new here for people who've already consumed every piece of TouchPad media available on the internet? Not much, friend, but it's worth a look to see some of the different keyboard sizes (S, M, L, and XL), multi-select on the email client, and a great crash in the airplane game demo (A plane crash, not a software crash). 

As you can see above, the TouchPad at MWC is still a look but don't touch kind of affair, but from our brief, unapproved tapping it looks like HP is refactoring how text selection works for webOS 3.0 - which should be obvious since currently it requires holding down the shift or option physical keys. Hopefully whatever they come up with will find its way back to phones in short order.
