On Wednesday,HP has introduced two new WebOS smartphones – the HP Veer and the Pre 3 . Along with the new WebOS, its widely anticipated new tablet, the HP TouchPad was also unveiled.
HP announced that it will bring WebOS to the PC later this year.
The 9.7-inch TouchPad features include a 1,024-by-768 capacitive display. It will run a 1.2-GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, and comes with a 1.3-megapixel webcam that supports video calls, Beats Audio technology, and stereo speakers.
The device weighs 1.6-pound and 13.7mm thick. It includes Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, and comes in 16GB or 32GB versions. It has twice the memory of the Pre 2, and features a gyro, accelerometer, and compass.
According to Jon Rubenstein, head of HP’s mobility group, "The TouchPad is all about you how you want to work, how you want to play, how you want to connect to things you value most, no one comes close to replicating our WebOS experience," he said.
The virtual keyboard has a number row, and the TouchPad comes bundled with QuickOffice to edit Microsoft docs and access to Skype, as well as Google Docs, Dropbox, and Box.net compatibility.
