TouchPad Easter Egg: HP gets Angry (Birds) [Update:Video!]

You're probably not gonna find this tip in a manual somewhere, but the next time you have a chance to go to Wal-Mart to demo one of the TouchPad's that are on display, try out this Easter Egg for a good laugh. HP has licensed some sound clips from Rovio, the maker of Angry Birds, and included them in the TouchPad for people to enjoy. This is, without a doubt, some really good fun.

Here's how it works: First, flip the TouchPad completely upside down so that the USB port is on the left side of the device, rather than the right. Open any app card if you don't already have one on the screen, and switch to card view. Once you're there, if you pull the card down into the launcher (rather than flipping it up off of the screen), you'll hear the elastic band of a slighshot being stretched tight. Let it go and the app flies off the top of the screen, along with the sounds of a thousand Angry Birds screaming towards the enemy pig fortress.

When we first saw it, we giggled like little schoolgirls for the rest of the day. It's these little things in life, after all, that make it so enjoyable. Have you had a chance to check this Easter Egg out yet (or maybe you've found some others)? Let us know in the comments so we can share it with the world.

UPDATE: Eli has alerted us to a video from bluenowte on YouTube of this Easter Egg in action, and we've added it here for your viewing pleasure after the break.
