Serena Williams got to play with a TouchPad. You did not. [video]

We were a little surprised ourselves at HP’s celebrity plugging at the Think Beyond event, but it seems that tennis star Serena Williams and MC Hammer (feel free to make your own joke here) were there so they could play with the new toys when we could not. To that end (and we’re ashamed we didn’t see this before), Williams hopped on out to the demo space so that she could literally go hands-on with the TouchPad, something that only the trained demonstration folk were allowed to do. They even let her go off script and hold the TouchPad over here head to go flying in Armageddon Squadron II.

Sometimes being a celebrity has its advantages. Video after the break.
