HP announces the TouchPad, its WebOS tablet

HP has just announced its entrant to the quickly crowding tablet market: the TouchPad. Built on Palm's WebOS, it's one of the few new tablets to not run Android.

The 9.7-inch tablet is due to be released this summer, coming loaded with a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, on-board gyroscope, accelerometer, compass and either 16GB or 32GB of on board storage. You get a front-facing camera, too. The first version will be Wi-Fi only, but look for both 3G and 4G models to come rolling out before too long. The pricing is still to be determined.
