As if the launch of the Mini 5102 netbook wasn’t enough, Hewlett-Packard has made the most of the hype generated by CES 2010 by unveiling yet another device. The new updated TouchSmart tm2 tablet from HP comes at a time when tech analysts have been going the whole hog predicting a major boom in tablet PCs.

The new HP TouchSmart tm2 tablet lives up to its name sporting a finger-friendly capacitive touch screen. An exemplary performance on the power front is one significant feature of the new tablet, with its battery life spanning 9.5 hours. Equipped with low-voltage Intel Core 2 Duo processors and optional ATI Mobility Radeon discrete graphics, HP proposes to sell its TouchSmart tm2 tablet for prices starting at $949.

The HP TouchSmart tm2 tablet is not so weighty at 4.8 pounds. The exteriors sport an awesome finish, with HP employing a brushed aluminum finish. Remember, the company’s Envy notebooks which had come with a similar shell.

The new device will sport New touch apps that would house under the shell a photo library app called BumpTop, an interactive 3-D screensaver, and a painting app called Corel Paint it! Touch. Touch-enabled versions of Hulu and Netflix would be the other significant additions. The HP TouchSmart tm2 brings to us the feeling that it could be a device worth the buy. We are going for it. How about you?
