AT&T to get the HP TouchPad 4G soon, with a 300 MHz processor speed boost
AT&T is about to get its very own version of the HP TouchPad webOS tablet. HP has just officially announced the TouchPad 4G, which will become available on AT&T “in time for back to school”.
The TouchPad 4G will basically be the same TouchPad that we already know, except for one detail. The TouchPad 4G will have a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, whereas the ‘vanilla’ HP tablet comes with a 1.2 GHz dual-core CPU. It’s unclear if this processor speed boost comes as a result of the first batch of TouchPad reviews which have all noted the tablet’s lag issues.
The TouchPad 4G will come with 21 Mbps HSPA+ (what AT&T calls 4G), GPS, and 32 GB of internal storage space. It will also have a 9.7-inch 1024×768 capacitive touchscreen, a 1.3 MP webcam for video calls, Wi-Fi 802.11n, and Bluetooth support.
Information about pricing and an actual release date will be available from AT&T at some point in the future. So unfortunately we can’t say anything about that just yet. Stay tuned though, for we’ll let you know as soon as we find out.
