HP / Palm tablets detailed, one of them may be called HP Touchpad

Just yesterday, we’ve heard that HP plans to unveil two new Palm tablets next month, which will be called Opal and Topaz.

Now we have more info on the upcoming tablets, courtesy of Engadget.

Reportedly, the HP Palm Opal has a 1024 x 768 pixels TFT LCD display and measures 180 x 144 x 13 mm – thus it’s somewhat comparable in size with the Samsung Galaxy Tab (190 x 120.5 x 12 mm)

The HP Palm Topaz (pictured below) will be larger than the Opal, measuring 241 x 190 x 13 mm (almost like an Apple iPad). It’s said that the screen resolution on the Topaz might be similar to the screen res on the Opal.

Other features of the two tablets:

  • Premium audio technology powered by HP’s Beats technology
  • “Tens of gigabytes” of cloud storage
  • Touchstone dock
  • “Tap-to-Share”, which supposedly allows you to transfer data (documents, music and such) from your tablet to your phone and back, just by taping the two gadgets together
  • “True multitasking” and Flash support – both already included in the latest WebOS

Interestingly, HP has recently filed a trademark for the “HP Touchpad” name – which might be used instead of Opal or Topaz when the new tablets will be launched. I guess we’ll find out the final names in February, eh?
