Real live TouchPad demo units arrive at Wal-Mart [video]

In something of a shift for the world’s largest retailer, at least one Wal-Mart has a real live working HP TouchPad on display. Wal-Mart traditionally has put plastic dummy units out on display, but in this case appears to have broken with the traditional and put a functional webOS tablet out for all to touch. They've also broken with the concept of time, putting the TouchPad out more than a week before it's supposed to be available. Of course, there’s only so much the toucher can do without a network connection, but actually getting personally acquainted with the latest and biggest version of webOS can go a long way for a potential customer. So we’ve got at least one Wal-Mart – now we need Best Buy to fill in those big-ole displays of theirs.

Thanks to Josh for the tip!
