HP Teases Us With TouchPad Videos

The HP TouchPad release date is July 1st. In advance of the release, the promotion wheels are beginning to turn. Evidence of which are a few videos from HP that show the TouchPad in action. Caution: Viewing these videos will give a feeling of gadget-lust.

Is there a webOS TouchPad app for that?

Today HP announced the long awaited release date the HP TouchPad. On June 19th, customers will have the ability to pre-order the TouchPad. On July 1st, you’ll be able to walk into a Best Buy, Walmart or any other host of retailers and pick up your TouchPad. HP has delivered on their promise to ship this summer. This also signals the start of sales phase. HP needs to make a compelling argument as to why you should purchase a TouchPad over an iPad 2, Motorola Xoom or one of the countless Android tablets that are starting to flood the market. Part of that argument continues to be how webOS offers superior multi-tasking, notifications and other industry leading features baked into the operating system. If the TouchPad is to be successful, the second part of the equation needs to be apps.
