With less than an hour to go before HP officially lifts the lid on the newest wave of webOS products since its acquisition of smartphone maker Palm, the names of the long awaited devices(s) have been leaked. They are called: TouchPad, Veer and Pre 3.
The TouchPad, as the name should make fairly obvious, is the first ever webOS tablet. Thanks to Precentral, we have a bit more to go on than just a name. The TouchPad will measure 13mm in thickness and weigh 1.5 pounds – exactly the same as the iPad.
It will boast a 1.2GHz Qualcomm MSM8660 processor, a 9.7-inch multi-touch display, 512MB of RAM, up to 64GB of storage (depending on the model), a 1.3-megapixel front-facing webcam, 3.5mm headset jack and support for Palm’s proprietary ‘Touchstone’ inductive charging dock.
Meanwhile, two new smartphones have also appeared on HP's website: the Veer and the Pre 3. The latter, clearly is the successor to the Pre 2, but we are still awaiting details on its specs.
The Veer, on the other hand, will be a “teen” focussed GSM-only handset and is purported to be “incredibly tiny”.
No word if there will be a successor to the Pixi too, but we’ll be sure to bring you more when HP takes the stage imminently.
