After seeing a huge rush in the tablet market, HP TouchPad has finally been heard of entering the growing market after a long silence since its announcement in February this year.

HP seemed pretty confident about surging the current tablet market as HP’s Eric Cador said, In the PC world, with fewer ways of differentiating HP's products from our competitors, we became number one; in the tablet world we're going to become better than number one. We call it number one plus.

HP thinks the TouchPad will annihilate the iPad and blow our minds to smithereens, says Engadget.

The 9.7 inch screened TouchPad, has a dual-core Snapdragon-based processor inside, along with the 3G version of the webOS operating system that Palm first created for its smartphones, before HP bought Palm.

The TouchPad will enter a market which is already crowded by Apple's iPad, Motorola's Xoom tablet, Samsung's Galaxy Tab and BlackBerry's Playbook.

The TouchPad was launched before the announcement of Apple’s slim iPad 2 and Android 3.x Honeycomb tablets.
