"What makes HP TouchPad a compelling alternative to competing products is webOS," added HP's Jon Rubinstein (via IW). "The platform's unmatched features and flexibility will continue to differentiate HP products from the rest of the market for both personal and professional use. This is only the beginning of what HP's scale can do with webOS."

Additionally, the tablet's virtual keypad will have a full number row, come with QuickOffice installed, Google Docs support, Dropbox, Box.net, VPN and wireless printing support.
