Topaz and Opal: HP Tablets with WebOS

by Tug Agency | 19.01.2011
The largest computer maker in the world, HP, will launch on the 9th of February their new tablets! Using WebOS open source platform … to which they gained access after the purchase of Palm. The first images of Topaz and Opal, as well as some details have been leaked to the internet.

Since HP purchased Palm in the second quarter of last year, its market strategy for tablets changed. They had reached an agreement with Microsoft to design a device with Windows 7: ‘The Slate’, these plans changed as soon as they had their own mobile platform and no longer needed Microsoft’s operative system.

We now have the first images of these tablets thanks to Engadget, with a sleek and simple design. The models have different sizes. The Palm Topaz is 9 inches and the Palm Opal 7 inches.
