    Nice promo video. I saw the official Adobe Reader and Sparkle HD apps which I hadn't seen before. Email and Kindle looked smoother too.

    Wait, Beats audio really only matters when "paired with beats headphones"? What? I thought that Beats was also some cool technology that lets you get pretty awesome sound out of the tiny built in speakers. I guess that's not true?

    well the touchpad has two speakers, which is one more than most other tablets as far as i know. but also their sound board design is made in such a way to minimize outside interference from the rest of the board. this all makes the sound better, but without the right equipment the gains will not be so noticable.

    That's a GREAT summary video. Now, HP just needs to split it up into multiple commercials for the TouchPad for advertising.

    I'm pretty sure that sounded like a way to sell accessories. However, we still don't know the details beyond just the Beats speakers, and don't know if includes the headphone jack hardware or audio decoder chip. But, this is one of the first times I've heard mention of the sound quality when paired with headphones, so it sounds like it may have that technology built in.

    Beats audio on your TouchPad will sound like this:

    No. It's a way to sell you some headphones to go with your TouchPad. It's going to sound better than the others because most, like the iPad and iPad 2 have terrible sound output.

    from what i read, beats audio is 24 bits .. which is the same grade as the recording studio and yes the mic jack and sound path have extra insulation and materials to transfer sound cleaner. still the speakers on the touchpad are small and even with regular head phones u will only barely tell a difference. you will need big speakers and big power to really be able to see the difference.
    its like a fast cpu running with very small bandwidth.

    edit: oh and another point, cds are sampled at 16bits, so even if u get a high quality file, if it came from a cd u wont see the full benefits. so HP can use this to try and upsell its music service they are developing...
