HP TouchPad uses Russell Brand to tout tablet

HP TouchPad taps Russell Brand for its tablet

When you think of cutting-edge technology and tablets, you probably think of Russell Brand, right? Wait, you don’t. Well, that makes sense but HP is tapping the movie star to promote its just-released TouchPad with webOS.

Calling it his “robot butler,” Russell Brand does his usual cheeky bits about why you should get this tablet but I’m not convinced these semi-amusing ads are enough to convince me to get an HP TouchPad. We had a retail unit and found the hardware was a smudge and fingerprint magnet and the software was just not ready for prime time (we had multiple reboots in the middle of using the thing).

Oh well, check out the ads below and let us know what you think of the HP TouchPad.

    Russell Brand is the certain psycho lunatic!
