Interested in purchasing the new HP TouchPad tablet that features a faster internet connection than the one available now? Great news, because it looks like the HP TouchPad 4G could be almost upon us. The webOS 3 tablet headed for AT&T’s HSPA+ network was recently spotted as being available for pre-order on Amazon’s website. And like most 4G devices, the tablet isn’t going to come cheap.
I wonder how long the prices for the tablet will stay, after all HP should know that it will be hard to compete in the tablet market with such a high price tag, running a relatively unknown operating system (webOS) that most people probably haven’t heard of. But it does have 4G connectivity (HSPA+ is 3.5G to be more accurate), which puts it a step above most of the other tablets. But is fast internet enough to sell the tablet? I guess we’ll have to see about it when it launches, though I’ve got a feeling the price won’t be $700 for too long. Check out the pre-order page.
