HP TouchSmart tm2 gets Netflix, 9-hour battery

TouchSmart tm2 upgrades HP's tablet PC

HP's TouchSmart convertible tablet has received an upgrade in the form of the tm2. It now has a sleeker, unibody-like design much like the Envy 13 and has made a switch from AMD to low-power Intel Core 2 Duos to extend the battery life; HP claims up to 9 hours even on the stock battery. An option for Mobility Radeon HD graphics give it a lift in video.

Software-wise, the tm2 inherits the Netflix touchscreen app of the TouchSmart desktops as well as the BumpTop sharing app, Corel Paint It! Touch for basic drawing, and a 3D screensaver. Corel Painter Sketch Pad and a handful of other apps also carry over, and Windows 7 plus a capacitive screen gives it multi-touch in most areas.

HP doesn't provide exact specifications but promises an exact ship date of January 17th and a minimum price of $949.
