HP’s PalmPad an iPad killer?

“Dear Steve, watch out , your iPad may soon have to struggle for dominance. At the CES 2011 there are a number of competitors planning in to throw their tablets into the market as an answer to yours.”  The dark horse HP – owner of the Palm has decided to display its PalmPad at the CES 2011.

FoxNews.com has obtained blueprints of the forthcoming device from a trusted source. As per the leak , HP is going to display three models of the PalmPad. All three will run the WebOS operating system version 2.5.1.  The hardware specifications of the PalmPad is almost same as the iPad.

However with features such as HDMI and USB 3.0 , the device will be more compatible that its Apple rival. It also houses a front and rear-facing cameras (1.3 and 3 megapixel respectively), both with LED flash.

The fourth model will not be displayed at the CES, but will be available to the university students to prove how versatile a machine can be . As of now, speculations are, that the three models at display will be larger than the university version.

One thing is for sure, year 2011 will be the year of tablets. RIM will also be delivering the Blackberry tablet very soon. This will lead to a fatal four way fight. iPad vs WebOS vs Android vs RIM. Lets see who comes out with flying colors.

  1. “iPAD killer, iPAD killer” Is this site that behind in the times that it still needs to throw around that verbiage. NOTHING is an iPAD killer because the iPAD is in a class of device and OS all inclusive to itself because it is a “MACintosh”. Just like Windows tablets,, just like MeeGo, Android and everything else.

  2. Im a Windows, linux and Android user but unfortunately Apple has always been the pace maker of tech. What I said about the “iPAD killer” title stands. Apple has a history of forcing the industry to change direction by means of releasing some revolutionary device and they will most likely continue to do so int he future. Apple always has the next best thing, whats tragic is Apple actually observes the way technology should go as their guide to device development and not how they “think” it should go. We are certainly in a technology revolution and I honestly cant wait to see whats next around each and every corner moving forward. Now, if the telco’s can stop phucking it up for everyone by nickle and diming for all this breaking technology it will be a wonderful we live in…..
