HP TouchPad Released

Last month, HP promised a new WebOS-powered tablet arriving in July. It did indeed arrive in stores Friday morning and is now available for purchase. The new HP TouchPad retails for $499 US (for the 16 GB model). It features a 9.7″ screen and a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm processor. Is this the first real competition for the iPad… or will it be a passing fad?
