WebOS 3.0, 1.2GHz Snapdragon and Touchstone
Following the announcement of its smartphone duo, the Veer and the Pre 3, HP has decided to lift the veil on its WebOS based slate that has been rumoured for quite some time, the 9.7-inch Touchpad.

Previously known as Topaz, Touchpad looks a lot like Apple's iPad. The 9.7-inch device weighs around 725 grams (1.6lb) and is 13.7mm thick. As far as specs go, Touchpad features a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon CPU, 9.7-inch 1024x768 screen, 16 or 32GB of integrated storage space, gyroscope, accelerometer, compass, front 1.3 megapixel camera (no camera on the back), 802.11bgn WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, A-GPS, stereo speakers and HP's own Beats audio engine. Of course, the device runs on HP's WebOS 3.0.

According to first hands-ons and HP itself, the device will be pretty fast and will not have any problems with multi-tasking, which does look pretty impressive and intuitive. Of course, Touchstone support is also available and it looks like HP certainly wants you to pair this one with your Pre 3 as those two devices will communicate easily, simply by a touch.

HP plans to have a couple of versions and, of course, two main models will be differentiated by the amount of internal storage space, 16 or 32GB. The first versions that will show up are WiFi-only ones, while 3G and 4G ones will follow.

As it was the case with its upcoming smartphones, HP stated that Touchpad will be coming this summer while the price is yet to be determined.
