palmpad sketch
Everyone and their monkey knows that Palm (who has been purchased by HP by the way) will be rolling out its iPad competitor sometime next year, with certain quarters calling it the PalmPad. What you see above could jolly well be drawings of the device, alongside a purported spec sheet that points out several details and features of the upcoming webOS-powered tablets. One of the models is said to feature WiMAX compatibility that will play nice with Sprint’s 4G network, alongside an HDMI-out port for those who have High Definition media on the tablet that is begging to be played on a HDTV, a 3-megapixel rear-facing camera with LED flash, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera (with an LED flash as well) and a USB 3.0 port. Sounds like a pretty heavy hitting device by any means, so hopefully the battery life will not disappoint. Apparently, there will be three versions of the PalmPad at first, although there isn’t any clear explanation on the model differences. Depending on the model of choice, the PalmPad will start from 8.9-inches and will enter the iPad’s 9.7-inch territory as well. Are you stoked yet?
