HP first multi-touch Tablet PC: HP TouchSmart TX2

Now You don’t have to wait for hybrid Tablet PC with multi-touch digitizer screen. HP is bringing the mighty Tablet PC TouchSmart TX2, which is going to be a refresh of the HP tx2500 Tablet PC. It is a powerful Tablet PC, which has capacitive digitizer, which uses the same technology that is used in iPhone.

So, HP has finally decided not to make people wait for the multi-touch technology in Windows 7. But, according to me, the most impressive part of TX2 is its price. It is just starting at $1199!. And just look at the specs you get for that little price:
