The new HP TouchPad Tablet, now on sale at dabs.com, aims to revolutionise computing practices by combining a beautifully light design with a focus on effective multitasking.
Weighing only 740g, the HP TouchPad is easily portable yet still boasts a large screen (9.7 inch diagonal), helping users to carry out several tasks at once. Unlike many other tablet devices the HP TouchPad has multi-tasking at its core.
The device’s operating system, HP webOS, allows it to quickly and simply move between messages, calendars, photograph collections and more by controlling and swiping “cards”, stacking similar tasks together according to the user’s preference.
The HP TouchPad Tablet also offers an extensive range of applications from a catalogue of thousands – including social networking facilities such as Facebook and popular games such as Angry Birds – along with wireless printing; a strong download capability for viewing movies and TV shows; and music courtesy of Beats Audio.
Dabs.com Computing product manager, Michelle Wood said: “The new HP TouchPad Tablet has a stunning backlit screen and IPS wide viewing-angle technology – but it doesn’t just look good, it also has an extremely impressive level of functionality, with an intuitive webOS which aims to reflect human nature in carrying out multiple simultaneous activities”.
The tablet has a fast processor and is geared towards communication and entertainment, with an integrated webcam and microphone for video calling and similar multimedia options.
Its rechargeable battery allows up to eight hours of web browsing and it can be charged either using the sleek HP Touchstone Charging Dock; or in its case, using an AC charger. The HP TouchPad Case itself is innovative, acting both to protect the device and as a stand for display uses.
