HP TouchPad with WebOS for $499

So the HP TouchPad has finally been announced and will be shipping in July for a suggested retail price of $499.99 (a by-product of HP’s acquisition of Palm).


This 9.7″ tablet will run WebOS (the mobile operating system developed by Palm) and has a 3G/WiFi and WiFi-only variants. Though the release date in the US is set on July 1, the rest of the world (I mean the Philippines) will not be getting one until late this year.

The HP TouchPad features a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, front-facing camera, Bluetooth, WiFi, 3G and will come 16GB ($499.99) and 32GB ($599.99) models.

      well no wonder no one wants to join friend.com.ph –because you give that site a bad name.define ignorant? How can ios match the multitasking power of webos which is the best tablet and phone OS? It’s only a matter of time before it beefs up its apps. It has Flash so you can play online games, etc

    try sulit.com.ph because I luckily found one at P16K for a 32GB model. It needed an internet connection to boot up since I got it sealed and brand new. It’s faster in loading youtube videos compared to my ipads and galaxy tab 10.1
