The new HP TouchPad gets out there (a little bit)

I’m really liking the first looks of the (soon to be released) HP TouchPad. Very sexy and swish looking. Sounds like webOS is pretty awesome too. We could have some serious iPad competition here, as long as the price point is set properly.

Another nice looking feature is the next generation of Touchstone technology (NFC anybody??):

Easily share a URL with your Pre3 simply by tapping them together. Receive text messages and answer phone calls on your TouchPad so you don’t miss a thing. Start reading a website or blog on a TouchPad and then tap your smartphone to take it to go.

NICE!!! and the specs are not slacking at all.
