The HP Touchpad was newly released in Europe and is now available in the US. The hype may be that HP is leaving the webOS hardware business in the near future sure, but they just placed orders for 64 GB HP TouchPad tablets with a 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon dual core processor. Before HP could close up shop they have shot orders out in the dark in hopes for a good return.

The original TouchPad had “>32GB of storage with a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon dual core chip. These models were released last month with the price set at $499 and $599, but because HP has knocked $100 off the price the new line up for HP TouchPads are thus; “>32GB $499 and 64GB $599

Would the idea of purchasing a $600 tablet that may be discontinued and have little support after be a good idea? Probably not. the suspected future outcome of HP is the high decrease in prices for the TouchPads within the coming months as third party retailers try to clear out stock.

Like other TouchPad models, the new 64GB HP TouchPad features a 9.7 inch, 1024 x 768 pixel display, webOS 3.0 operating system, and a front-facing 1.3MP camera. It has a 6300mAh battery, measures 7.5″ x 9.5″ x 0.5″ and weighs about 1.6 pounds.

The webOS operating system may not be completely overrun and lost to the digital world just yet. Although no announcements have been made, thus making webOS oblique and might not bond well with future software updates and cool new third party apps from independent developers, HP is willing to license the software to other companies for use in phones, tablets and other products.
