There she is, the HP TouchPad was introduced introduced today in San Francisco as part of  a wave of webOS products.  The TouchPad is almost a clone of the  iPad. 1.6 pounds and measures 13.7mm thick, has HP’s Beats audio engine, Touch-to-Share (a feature that lets users easily transfer a website, document, song, text or call from the phone to the tablet  by tapping the two devices together).

The specs:

  • 3.0, true multitasking,
  • Touch-to-share
  • 9.7-inch display (1024 x 768 screen resolution)
  • Dual-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon CPU
  • Gyroscope, accelerometer, compass and
  • 16GB / 32GB of internal storage space
  •  Front-facing 1.3 megapixel webcam, support for video calling,
  • 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, A-GPS (3G model only)
  •   Stereo speakers powered by Beats
  • VPN support

There’s a new paneled email application and a pop-up notification system. Video calls are powered by Skype.  Amazon’s Kindle e-book store for book lovers out there. The virtual keyboard looks easy enough to use but we will see.  I look forward to playing with this soon. Looks like the Motorola Xoon will not be the only kid out to play this Spring.
