Hewlett-Packard has another convertible tablet almost ready for us, and the TouchSmart tm2 definitely brings a touch of flair and style.
HP has implemented its updated TouchSmart Mobile 2.0 software with the intention of making the touchscreen more like a digital "canvas." The battery life is rather average, if not a bit below average at this point, with a possible maximum of six hours and 30 minutes.
Let's take a look inside the embellished aluminum chassis of the TouchSmart tm2:
