The new HP TouchPad should be available this summer. As the name suggests it is a touchscreen tablet computer with a 9.7-inch screen. It weighs just 740 grams and it's about 13.7mm thick. In other words, it's about as light and portable as a copy of Vogue.
Set aside, for a moment, the entertainment features and think about it as a business platform. There are so many web-based services (see Twenty outsourced cloud services for growing businesses) out there that a tablet like this might make sense for many business applications.
Business-friendly features include: built-in webcam for video conferencing, built-in collaboration tools using Google Docs or Box.net, the ability to print wirelessly to compatible networked HP printers. There is an optional, compact wireless keyboard. And, of course, the TouchPad's web browser is fully-featured and includes a beta of Adobe Flash Player 10.1 so you can get a complete web experience.
