We’ve already reported that the HP’s first ever webOS powered HP TouchPad tablet will be releasing on July 1st. But, Hewlett-Packard’s recent trademark filing might suggest that the company is manufacturing some more tablets in the line of ‘TouchPad’ family. Earlier, we heard the sources revealing that HP was trademarking three tablets called "HP Duopad," "HP Touchslate," and "HP Touchcanvas." Recently HP has filed for the trademarks for six more names that could apply to the upcoming webOS powered TouchPad tablet. HP has filed for the trademarks of possible Tablet names – TouchPadFlex, TouchPadPro, TouchPadTwin, TouchPadGeo, TouchPad7, and TouchPadGo.
So, there might be chances for 7-inch tablets, and 10-inch models to arrive in due time. We might also see the keyboard-equipped tablets like Eee Pad Transformer, and Hinged design like Sony S2. Some of these tablet names may either be red herrings or simply different potential names that HP is in the process of choosing among. Previously, we’ve also heard that Opal and Topaz named tablets are said to sport 7- and 9.7-inch (1024 x 768 pixels) screens. Topaz will be Wi-Fi-only at first, with HSPA, CDMA, and LTE versions coming out shortly thereafter. Topaz will be having front-facing 1.3 megapixel camera, a dual-core 1.2 GHz processor, and 512 MB of RAM. Recently, “webOS Pivot” trademark also filed by HP for retail store services. We are not sure whether it is a new name for the App Catalog or the branding for in-app purchases? or a new point-of-sale system?
HP’s upcoming TouchPad tablet comes with WebOS 3.0, 1.2GHz processor, 9.7″ touch display, 1.3MP webcam, 1GB RAM, 16GB/32GB memory storage, gyroscope, accelerometer, Wi-Fi, 3G, GPS, Bluetooth 2.1, Amazon’s Kindle e-book store, and more.
HP TouchPad’s 16GB edition will cost you $499.99, and the 32GB variant will set you back $599.99. Starting June 19th, interested folks can pre-order the HP TouchPad.
