HP Tablet WebOS spotted at Walmart

After HP bought had the old industry size is Palm's future plans changed enormously for WebOS. After the innovative operating system was previously used on the Palm and the Pre Pixi you dream of with HP tablets, notebooks and even normal computers based WebOS. Now the shop showed the existence of Walmart and the HP TouchPad announced some interesting details.

The Walmartseite this case shows the WiFi-only version of the HP TouchPad, the price of 599 U.S. $ is on par with that of the iPads in the WiFi version - in our opinion a serious mistake by HP, because for that price, most customers are probably the supposedly Apple better product now. With a lower price of perhaps $ 400, the subject chances are much higher. But we get to the product itself, instead, to predict career.
The HP TouchPad you have chosen a design that comes very close to that of the iPad. It is also the TouchPad a single button in the lower frame center, supplemented only by Ein-/Auschalter and the volume rocker. In contrast, the hardware technology is waiting at its finest. Built in such way to a 9.7-inch capacitive display with 1,024 x 768 pixels, which is that of the iPad very worthy, if not identical. The biggest weakness of the WebOS, namely, to eradicate its inertia, HP finally installed modern processing technology, which Palm did not do well on cost grounds. Sun tinkers inside a Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8060 Dual Core processor with 1.2 GHz clock frequency. This will be supplemented by the great 1 GB of RAM, which is the intermediate stage to the slow, 32 GB of NAND memory.

Further, the device naturally offers 802.11 b / g / n WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1 and a resolution of 1.3 Megapixel camera for video chats. Thus, video and music play back built in stereo speakers is adequate quality of "Beats Audio Technology " to all other current Tablet solutions to be far superior. Of course, a gyroscope, an accelerometer and a light sensor to it, even the built-in compass with such a device should not be missing, with most of these features are integrated into the SoC Snapdragon anyway. A very positive impression of promises, the 6,300 mAh lithium ion battery strong, long lead times - if you have recognized the problems of the first Web OS software, and significantly reduces power hungry. The price is like at the beginning sets out very high, is to be hoped that this will decline rapidly once the device is actually available then.
