The HP TouchPad


With the HP TouchPad now being official HP have released images and the full spec of the device which you will see below.

On a personal note I can say that I am truly impressed with this new creation and I firmly believe that WebOS on a tablet will be nothing more than beautiful. We will of course see more tablets next week at MWC and we still have the BlackBerry PlayBook to be released, but in the meantime lets enjoy the HP TouchPad.
