TouchPad: Like Nothing Else (Sponsored)

— July 28, 2011 — Tech
By Gizmo Gladstone from HP’s TheNextBench

Whether you want to goof off or get to work, the HP TouchPad proves that you don’t always need to lug a laptop around. HP TouchPad’s brilliant large screen gives you the ability to multitask like a champ, wirelessly print documents and navigate files in the cloud. If you want to get down to business, check out this review of TouchPad’s uses for work.

Then when you need some downtime, crack open the app store’s Pivot magazine, a unique experience that shows you apps to try and provides interesting stories about how to use them. From there, you’ll find a ton of stuff to download: Games, Kindle books, movies or TV shows, and music powered by Beats Audio. And you can browse the same web you know and love with support for Adobe Flash.

With hundreds of TouchPad-specific apps already available and more on the way, the HP webOS App Catalog has you covered. If we’re talking social apps, I’ll humbly submit that I think the TouchPad’s version of Facebook is fantastic. Need a game break? Angry Birds is available - and for those of you addicted to Farmville, it’ll run in a Web browser. After all, with Adobe Flash there’s a long list of Flash games you can play on the TouchPad.

The all-new HP Moviestore powered by RoxioNow offers recently released big-screen movies and current TV episodes, and the 7digital MP3 Music app lets you discover, purchase and download high-quality, DRM-free MP3 music from a catalog of over 14 million songs.

Speaking of MP3’s. The music sounds great. Over at HP’s The Next Bench, I break down Beats Audio. You know, it’s available on the TouchPad, HP laptop and desktop computers - and it makes a big difference in improving the overall audio quality coming out. My review also includes links to a video that explains HP’s Beats Audio and another video that tells the story of Dr Dre and Beats.

If you want to dig deeper into what I’ve done with my TouchPad - and all the latest offerings coming out of HP, you can find much more over at
