HP reveals multi-touch TouchSmart tx2 convertible tablet

While HP mistakenly claims that its sparkly new (but previously rumored) TouchSmart tx2 is the world’s first multi-touch consumer notebook, we’re still decidedly stoked about this here convertible tablet. Boasting a 12.1-inch swivel display (LED-backlit) that’s just dying to have your prints all over it, the tx2 will come loaded with Windows Vista, a bezel-mounted fingerprint reader, integrated webcam with microphone, Bluetooth / WiFi, stereo speakers, a 5-in-1 multicard reader and a LightScribe SuperMulti DVD burner. HP’s also delivering the oh-so-stylish Reaction Imprint exterior, an AMD Turion X2 dual-core processor, the firm’s own MediaSmart 2.0 software, a VGA output, Ethernet and at least one USB port from the looks of things.
