HP revealed the new incarnation of its tablet via its French TouchPad website
The latest wi-fi TouchPad will be available in a lacquered white exterior finis, though the front bezel area remains black, much like the two-tone white version of the Veer. Additionally, the Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8060 SoC has received a speed bump up to 1.5Ghz from the stock TouchPad's 1.2Ghz. This boost in clock-speed, combined with the recently-released WebOS 3.0.2 update, should give the TouchPad a nice jolt of much-needed performance.
So double the memory and an extra blob of power for your TouchPad. We expect all that processor grunt will have WebOS running darn smooth. The new blanc tablet is up for order on HP France now priced in at €599 and set to ship in one to two weeks.
