Overview of HP TouchPad (16GB)
Introducing the HP TouchPad, another unique competitor in the tablet field for 2011. HP are known for their desire to differentiate from the market and the TouchPad will be no exception. The first device to feature the most up to date version (3.0) of HP's revolutionary and industry acclaimed webOS operating system coupled with leading hardware with a dual-core 1.2 GHz Qualcomm processor and 1GB of RAM.
The webOS interface is a dream to use and has been praised by many reviewers with its previous incarnations on the Pre range of smartphones. Version 3.0 has been optimised for tablet use and provides a clean, spacious workspace to navigate. Applications and features are displayed as ‘cards’ which you are able to group manually or automatically in stacks for easy multitasking.
Communication is king and the TouchPad integrates all your different channels seamlessly via HP Synergy. When connected to the Internet you only need to begin typing a contacts name to be able to access their contact information and begin sending an email or post a social media update without even launching the necessary application separately. The front facing 1.2 MP camera is just the trick for making video calls and the photo app lets you view your snaps from Facebook, Snapfish and Photobucket all in one place.
HP understand connectivity and with high speed Internet connection and browsing (with Flash 10.1) and support for Google Docs, the world is literally at your fingertips. Box.net also allows you to print wirelessly to compatible networked HP printers. Audio support comes from Beats Audio™ for top-notch sound quality. Store HD movies and take advantage of thousands of e-books from online repositories.
Touchstone technology also features allowing for the next generation of integration between HP devices. If you have a Pre range smartphone, simply tap the Touchstones together to transfer a web link, text message and even phone calls. Of course, wireless charging via the Touchstone dock makes an appearance.
