hp-touchpad-vs-ipad2Yesterday, Apple unveiled its latest product named as ‘Apple iPad 2’. And on the other hand, HP unveiled its one of the latest devices named as ‘HP TouchPad’ on February 9, 2011 which is also nominated as the Most Anticipated Gadget of 2011 in Engadget Awards. I think that it should be great to compare both devices with respect to their specifications.
