The WebOS Tablet from HP got unveiled today. Has the Palm WebOS still appeal to have a chance against Android and Apple? We still have to wait until Summer to find out. The HP TouchPad features a 9.7-inch screen with 1024x768px resolution and runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon dual-CPU APQ8060 1.2-GHz processor.

Other features of the first WebOS Tablet include 16GB or 32GB storage, Wifi 802.11n, A-GPS (3G only), Bluetooth, 1.3MP front faceing webcam, 6300mAh battery and Micro-USB port.

The TouchPad weighs 740g and measures (7.48 inches x 9.53 inches x .54 inches).

Like with the Palm Phones you can charge the TouchPad via a Touchstone (sold separately).

On the software side the WebOS TouchPad supports Adobe Flash Player 10.1 beta, HP Synergy feature, virtual full QWERTY keyboard and Quickoffice Connect Mobile Suite.

The TouchPad user interface is a visual representation of your workspace, so you can manage your workflow in a naturally intuitive way that’s easy and fun. The power of webOS true multitasking lets you have multiple applications running at the same time. webOS shows you your activities in the form of cards, not a sea of application icons on numerous home screens.

The TouchPad Palm WebOS Tablet is planned for a Summer release. No pricing information is available yet. See also the TouchPad page on the Palm site.
