HP and AT&T announce the 1.5GHz TouchPad 4G

Summary: HP and AT&T are teaming up to bring consumers a 4G-ready version of HP's tablet. Is this the impetus that consumers need to jump onboard the webOS train?


The TouchPad may not have received the greatest of accolades so far, but that isn't preventing AT&T from jumping aboard. The company announced today the TouchPad 4G, which is built to run on AT&T's HSPA+ network.

HP announced the cellular-connected version of the tablet back in June, but it was at that point unknown whether the tablet would run on AT&T's 4G network.

In addition, to 4G support the newest TouchPad also comes with a 1.5GHz processor, a significant step-up over the 1.2GHz one in the current TouchPad. So far, HP has only announced a 32GB version of the tablet.

There's no word on price or availability, but it's a safe bet that the TouchPad 4G will be a bit more pricy than the original version.

  • Significant?

    First - only about 5 people will buy one. And 2nd, a move from 1.2ghz to 1.5ghz is Not significant. Was this story written just to take up space?
