HP TouchPad makes an early appearance at Wal-Mart, video demo shows webOS 3.0 in action
The 9.7-inch HP TouchPad might have been on your wish list for quite a while as it was announced way back in February, but if you can't even wait for a couple of days until the official release date on July 1st, you might want to go to your local Wal-Mart. The tablet has already hit the shelves of a few stores, but this video demo below comes from Kansas.

The demonstrated unit was put on display with Wi-Fi connectivity turned on, so the shopper could take a detailed six-minute look at the functions of webOS 3.0 on the TouchPad. Judging from the video, the tablet looks very responsive, with smooth swipe and pinch gestures. The pricing of the tablet stands at $500 for the basic 16GB Wi-Fi only model, while the 32 gig version will set you back $600.

Looks like a fun, WeBOS tablet. HP is gonna promote the crap out of it, and is more excited about this then their mobile division. The only real question: Is there a market left? Who wants a Tablet that hasn't already got one?

By omitting a camera on the first iPad, Apple has unwittingly created a market for not only the iPad 2, but also it's competitors. I have the original iPad but no ability to video chat, I now look forward to getting a tablet with a camera. And now I have way more options then I had a year ago. :)
