A lot of HP's product placement seems to be around the Touchpad. While the Veer was the first, this Tablet has been getting a lot of love during shows and in product "teasers" to drum up interest. They haven't ignored the smartphones, but this is where the emphasis has been on. Add campaigns, getting it to the largest retailers, displays, the whole bit. It is a very good tablet if you look at the specs only, and price range and available extras like apps may be the only factors left that may keep it down. I still wonder how much of a market there is this year on non-iPad tablets, but HP seems ready to go to war for it's TouchPad and at least try to get it ahead of the Playbook and Android offerings.
