HP will launch its WebOS 32GB TouchPad 4G tablet on AT&T in the U.S., in time for back to school.
The TouchPad 4G is with a faster 1.5-GHz CPU, 32 GB of storage space, integrated GPS and AT&T wireless mobile broadband capabilities. The connected version of HP’s first webOS tablet lets users browse the web, check e-mails and get more done in more places – not just Wi-Fi hotspots.
“TouchPad 4G is ideal for anyone who needs maximum flexibility for productivity on the go,” said David Gee, vice president, Marketing and Enterprise Solutions, webOS, Personal Systems Group, HP. “It’s particularly well suited for users who rely on connectivity in the field – from large corporations to small businesses and self-employed mobile professionals.”
“Consumers and small business customers are seeking cutting-edge mobile computing devices that offer easy access to the web and the ability to stay in touch with friends and clients on the go,” said David Haight, vice president, Business Development, Emerging Devices, AT&T. “The TouchPad 4G is a sharp, multifunctional device that delivers the perfect set of features. Pairing it with the nation’s fastest mobile broadband network and most extensive Wi-Fi network gives TouchPad 4G users the best mobile broadband experience in the market.”
With HP TouchPad 4G users can download large files quickly and access favorite websites with ease. With AT&T’s DataConnect (plans for tablets), users can buy the prepaid or postpaid mobile broadband data service that fits their needs. Also, they will be able to take advantage of unlimited access to more than 20,000 AT&T Wi-Fi Hot Spots nationwide (with qualifying data plans).
