HP TouchPad 4G on AT&T: Offers 1.5GHz Processing Power

The world of the Tablet PC has certainly become competitive especially when you consider how things were before the introduction of the first Apple iPad. If you remember there were a few manufacturers dabbling in the market but none of them were exactly excelling, now that Apple has turned it into a highly profitable market it seems everybody wants a piece of the action!

Google’s Android OS is something that has become extremely popular, their operating system is on the vast majority of tablets out there and it’s still growing. We have seen it on all sorts such as the Motorola Xoom and also Sony’s new S1 and S2 tablets. The iOS and Android OS aren’t the only ones around though, the one we are reporting on today the HP TouchPad 4G on AT&T which will offer 1.5GHz of processing power runs on their own webOS.

We learned of this through an article over on BGR by Todd Haselton who has said that they prefer it to almost every tablet that they have tested to date when they took a look at the WiFi only version. As things stand there’s no price or release date that has been revealed however a few on the specs that you can expect to see from HP’s new bad boy has.

Of course as we mentioned already it has a 1.5GHz processor, it has 32GB of integrated storage and a nice 9.7-inch touch display at a resolution of 1024×768. Although there’s no exact release date, HP has actually confirmed that the tablet will launch on AT&T in time for the back to school season which isn’t too far away.

From reading the press release the intentions of the HSPA+ network make this a pretty decent choice; AT&T’s fast mobile broadband network will allow the tablet PC to download large files quickly. This means you can stay on top of your emails, surf the web and do whatever else you need to do at the time.

They also mention in the press release that TouchPad users will be able to experience the “next-level” multitasking with integrated access to their information with HP Synergy. They also mention that there will be unobtrusive notifications, which is always a plus. Lastly they mention that there are a number of optional accessories for the device including the Wireless Keyboard, the HP TouchPad case and of course the HP Touchstone Charging Dock.
