HP Palm tablet specs outed

iPad meets WebOS

3 Big data security analytics techniques

It was bound to happen: the upcoming Palm tablet's specifications have leaked out of HP.

And, WebOS and inductive charging aside - and both of these are Palm smartphone standards - it's unexceptional stuff considering what all the other tablet makers are going to offer. The specs were leaked to Pre Central.

The CPU is a 1.2GHz ARM-based boy from Qualcomm, though it is dual core. The tablet's screen is an iPad-like 9.7in, 1024 x 768 IPS (In-Plane Switching) LCD, the touch-sensitive layer capacitive. It has an "EZ-clean" coating.

The tablet - believed to be codenamed 'Topaz' - has 2.4GHz and 5GHz 802.11n Wi-Fi, plus Bluetooth. There's a full-size Sim slot for the version with HSPA 3G connectivity - which also has GPS.

Memory: 512MB of DDR 2. Storage: 16-64GB of Flash, no memory card expansion. The only ports are a 3.5mm headphone socket and a mini USB. The audio system carries the trendy Beats brand.

Unlike the Apple tablet, there's a 1.3Mp front-facing webcam. There isn't one on the back but, realistically, who's going to use a tablet as a camera when they're out and about?

The gadget measures 240 x 190 x 14mm and weighs 700g. It sports an "upscale design with tapered edge", chirps the leaked blurb.

Topaz's 24Wh hour battery is good for at least eight hours' runtime, it claims.

HP is expected to announce the tablet on 9 February. ®
