Enterprise Mobility: HP's TouchPad Tablet, Palm Pre3, Veer Mini Smartphone Worth a Closer Look
HP formally unveiled its long-anticipated TouchPad tablet computer, the Pre 3 smartphone and the Veer mini smartphone Feb. 10. Of course, eWEEK covered the event live. But this slideshow takes a deeper dive into the product specifications available on HP's Website. All the devices are powered by HP's revamped webOS, which the computer maker acquired in its $1.2 billion acquisition of Palm last year. Slated for retail release this summer (no pricing yet), the TouchPad weighs 1.6 pounds, and is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core processor. The machine will come with 16GB or 32GB of internal storage as it seeks to challenge the game-creating Apple iPad and fleet of tablets based on Google's Android 3.0 operating system, as well as RIM's PlayBook. The HP Pre 3 sports a 3.6-inch screen with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard and a 1.4GHz processor, as well as front- and rear-facing cameras for video calls. The HP Veer offers a 2.6-inch touch-screen on a tiny handset that runs the length of a credit card. HP's Touchstone software will connect the three webOS devices. We explain how here.
