9.7" IPS-LCD display with 768x1024 resolution, like the one on the iPad, and up to 64GB of internal memory will be the specs for the upcoming webOS tablet HP Palm Topaz. There will be versions with 3G and LTE later on...

There is wireless streaming, though...if HP manages to keep the price around $400 initially, these will sell.

If this releases soon I will probably have buyers remorse knowing my Thunderbolt has a 8655 in it. Why couldn't HTC just wait a second longer?

I'm sold. That is a pretty solid spec sheet and WebOS is a rock solid mobile os. What is left is Palm to get enough market share to lure developers into making WebOS apps. With this product it will give them that chance.

Now all I'm waiting for is to see if the rumored 5" candy bar phone is real and that will lock in to Palm completely.

The biggest disappointment is that HP didn't just use an Android OS, even at least for a different model. That combination would completely take over the Tablet market. Good to see however they are making a Wifi version and a 4G version, one thing other companies have been lacking.

bwahahahahahaha are you serious?!? That's the worst idea I have ever heard. Android is a downgrade! I love this tablet. Buying it the first day!

man has a point. WebOS is great, the only reason it never took off is because Palm was terrible at designing a quality phone, but the OS is superb, it may actually take off with some quality devices.

agreed with that last 2 comments. webOS is amazing, just the hardware that palm had originally put in its phones was pretty minimal. the actual software is amazing, and a breeze to use, its actually a lot easier to navigate with some cooler features that android OS does have.
