The HP TouchPad is the sexy webOS tablet we’d all been waiting for. With Android tablets failing to make a huge splash, the HP TouchPad was really our only hope against the reigning king of the tablet world – the Apple iPad. When HP presented it during its webOS conference, it looked incredibly hot and the demos of webOS 3.0 looked fantastic. Then we got our hands on it, and came away pretty impressed. But how does this new tablet look on the inside?
Here are the details of the innards, according to TechRepublic:
- Processor: 1.2 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8060
- Storage: 32GB SandDisk SDIN4E2-32G
- RAM: 1MB Samsung K4P8G304EC-FGC1 LPDDR2
- Communications: Atheros AR6003X WLAN IC
- Display: 9.7-inch multi-touch screen (1024×768 resolution)
- Battery: 3.7V 6000mAh 22.2Wh Li-Polymer battery
- Ports: MicroUSB, 3.5mm headset jack
- Camera: 1.3Mp webcam
- Audio: Built-in microphone and stereo speakers
No 3G network connectivity to be found within the HP TouchPad, but those models ought to be out by late summer this year. For now, we’re just a day away from the official launch of this thing, and some of us can’t wait. Expect to fork over $499.99 for the 16 GB model and $599.99 for the 32 GB model; they’re a little pricy, but given the current tablet landscape, it’s not half bad. Still, we’d prefer if it were a little closer to the iPad’s pricing.
