One thing about the webOS is that it is not just about the tablet or the phone, it's about what the webOS devices can do together. Devices can interact with each other and take advantage of their combined features, whether it is having a Veer in your pocket that allows the TouchPad to access the Internet or moving infromation from one browser to another. As these capabilties continue to expand, it will be a whole different interaction.
