HP/Palm Announces New Tablet

Palm Inc., a company purchased by HP earlier this year, is about to announce its very own WebOS-powered tablets at the upcoming CES trade-show early next year.

According to a FoxNews.com report, the forthcoming “PalmPad” tablets are ready for production, and Palm’s owner, Hewlett-Packard, is betting a lot on the new devices. HP is expected to introduce three models of the PalmPad at the show, all three running a brand new version of WebOS, dubbed WebOS 2.5.1.

The three devices will actually be based on the HP Slate hardware, but will use ARM processors instead of Intel’s Atom. The devices are also expected to be compatible with Sprint’s 4G network.

The PalmPads are expected to feature a mini HDMI port, as well as front and rear-facing cameras.

The main difference between the three versions will be their size, as HP is expected to offer three different options when it comes to screen size, namely 7-inch, 8-inch, and 10-inch.
