Live Demo TouchPads Appearing in Wal-Mart

hp touchpad demo walmart Wal-Mart has traditionally not been the proving grounds for any of the latest Palm-related news found on PIC but the arrival of the HP TouchPad looks to solidify the retail giant's position as a major player in the tablet game.

A Wal-Mart store in Pittsburg, Kansas has already placed a functioning TouchPad out on display with wi-fi connectivity. A nearly six-minute long video taken in this store is now on YouTube (embed after the break) where a curious shopper was able to demo the device with several apps and games. A brief demonstration of the looping demo mode on the device is also in the video, as is the free Box.net cloud storage offer included with the device.

Thanks, PreCentral.

Were you able to play with it at all? How did it seem to do performance-wise? I'm stunned no TPs have snuck into the wild by a clueless retailer or two breaking the embarge for selling these things. It happens all the time with non-Apple products!

Here's the link to the hands on I posted on 6.25.11. My opinion still stands as to the speed of launching apps. My photos aren't excellent as the lighting in these joints is terrible.

Here's the link to both pics I took. It's upside down but I was standing on my head to take it. Pre didn't know which way was up or down. Display is terrible. I finally was able to get it to rotate to portrait today after I took the pic. I had to hurry so they didn't throw me out. They had all the iPads stolen last week. You have to ask to buy one, their in the storeroom. WalMart is in Lewisburg PA.
Have a nice day!
