The new TouchPad from Hewlett-Packard looks beautiful, but its app collection is pitifully small.
This week, it introduced what it considers a groundbreaking new product: a tablet with a touch screen!
It’s the H.P. TouchPad ($500 for the 16-GHz model, $600 for 32 GHZ): a black rectangle with a glossy 9.7-inch multitouch screen. You can zoom into maps, photos or Web pages by putting two fingers on the glass and spreading or pinching them. The screen image rotates when you turn the tablet 90 degrees.
