Turns out HP went ahead of Apple to introduce a portable internet table to the market. Dubbed the DreamScreen, the 10-inch and 13-inch models will be fully touchscreen and priced reasonably low.
The tablet will have a LAN port, WiFi 802.11 b/g, a 2GB storage expandable to an additional 16GB via 4-in-1 card reader. It will be pre-loaded with applications like internet radio as well as access to websites like Facebook, Pandora, etc. It can also play a variety of video files. It also comes with a remote control for multimedia playback.
It does seem to be a bit crippled and not a fully functional tablet PC (more like a souped up digital picture frame) but with a starting price of $249, it’s a good deal.
