HEWLETT-PACKARD, introducing its new TouchPad in the crowded touch-screen tablet pack, has enlisted the quirky British comedian Russell Brand and other youthful celebrities in an attempt to provide the pizazz younger buyers look for when they choose personal devices. Russell Brand recorded a commercial for H.P.’s TouchPad in Los Angeles. H.P.’s “Everybody On” campaign will make its debut on Thursday with a 30-second commercial on cable and network television.
