Both models feature 9.7 inch, 1024 x 768 pixel displays, a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon dual core processor, and the webOS 3.0 operating system.
The tablet has gotten mixed reviews. But if you’re willing to overlook sluggish performance and a relatively small number of apps, the tablet has some nice features including an excellent system for multitasking, a decent web browser, and big dreams: if you use the TouchPad and a Pre smartphone running webOS, the two will interact with one another to share web pages and other data and eventually you may be able to interact with PCs, printers, and other devices running the software as well.
In other tablet news, the Lenovo IdeaPad K1 10 inch Android tablet is up for pre-order at Amazon for $499.99. Lenovo’s tablet isn’t nearly as distinctive as HP’s. Like most other high profile tablets launching this year it features a 10.1 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display, NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor and Android 3.x operating system. Lenovo may offer some custom software for the tablet though.
We’ve seen retail listings for the K1 before, but this is the first time a store has actually started taking pre-orders, so it may be an indication that Lenovo’s first Android tablet will be ready to ship in the US soon.
Update: In a completely unsurprising move, the Amazon pre-order page for the IdeaPad K1 has been removed.
