HP TouchPad is the latest tablet to challenge the supremacy of Apple's iPad but can it really beat the iPad?

iPad is the reigning king of tablet jungle so far. Just in less than 16 months, up to 25 million units of iPad have been sold and over 100,000 tablet-specific apps had been attracted.

However, iPad's unchallenged run could be put to an end by HP TouchPad, thanks to its distinguishing operating system WebOS.

Actually, HP TouchPad, which has a glossy 9.7-inch LED backlit multi-touch capacitive screen with a 4:3 aspect ratio, bears a strong resemblance to the iPad. For instance, they both have accelerometer, light sensor, gyroscope and digital compass. However, it has some smart features that iPad doesn't have. Admittedly, it also has a few shortcomings. Let’s take a look at the groundbreaking tablet.
