Our friends over at PreCentral were the lucky recipients of a presentation that details the specs of the upcoming webOS tablet codenamed Topaz. The document is reportedly from last year, so things could have changed.
Here are the specifications according the document:
|Processor||Dual-core Qualcomm MSM8660 at 1.2GHz|
|Graphics||Integrated Adreno 220 GPU|
|Screen||9.7″ XGA 1024 x 768|
|Dimensions||190mm x 240mm x 13.7mm|
|Weight||700g / 1.5lb (estimated)|
|Storage||16g / 32g / 64g eMMC|
|Camera||Front-facing 1.3mp camera for Video Chat|
|Bluetooth||2.1 + EDR|
|WiFi||Dual-band 802.11 b/g/n|
|Other Radios||Optional WWAN for HSPA, LTE, perhaps CDMA later|
|Sensors||Accelerometer, eCompass, Gyro, Light Sensor, Microphone|

|Battery||24WHr for >8hrs, using two 3150mAh cells|
The Topaz tablet is said to be 9″, include 512MB of RAM and come in three sizes (16GB, 32GB, 64GB). The device is said to include a 1.3 megapixel camera on the front, no camera on the back. The device will support Touchstone charging, but a new variation dubbed v2. HP also intends to offer Flash support, in an effort to differentiate the webOS tablets from the iPad.
The hardware looks impressive, but the success will depend upon HP’s ability to get developers on board and deliver applications that are tablet specific. PreCentral also details assorted changes to the webOS UI for tablets. How many days until February 9th?
