HP PalmPad Tablets Coming to CES with WiMAX & Dual Cameras

December 22, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

The latest online reports indicate that HP will be unveiling their PalmPad tablet line-up, the first iPad competitors of the company, during the CES in January 2011.

The forthcoming tablets are expected to be running on the version 2.5.1 of Palm’s mobile operating system, webOS. Several documents with the specifications of the devices are out and the drawings can give an idea about how the device is actually crafted.

One among the proposed models is expected to arrive with WiMAX compatibility for use with Sprint’s 4G network. It will also feature an HDMI-out port, a 3-megapixel rear-facing camera with LED flash and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera.

The front facing camera is also expected to come with an LED flash and if true it is definitely an odd feature. The device will have a USB 3.0 port to enhance the connectivity.

It is also known that the company is planning to introduce a “university version” of the PalmPad that will not be there for display at the CES.

The reports are suggesting an initial launch of three versions of the PalmPad, but we are still not informed about the differences between all these models. But we are expecting one among the models to bear a screen similar to the 9.7 inch iPad.
