7-inch webOS tablet coming from HP this summer?

HP is expected to follow-up its 9.7-inch HP TOuchPad tablet with a 7-inch model set to land this August

HP is to launch a 7-inch rendition of its webOS powered TouchPad tablet this August, just weeks after its 9.7-inch model makes its way to the UK, new reports have suggested.

Set to be officially unveiled in the UK later this week, the original 9.7-inch HP TouchPad is to land running the webOS operating system pioneered by Palm boasting a 1024 x 768p resolution display and a 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor with new reports suggesting the mooted 7-inch model will feature a similarly impressive set of credentials.

Ahead of the TouchPad’s global launch the Taiwan Economic News has reported HP is ordering between 400,000 and 450,000 TouchPad devices per month from suppliers with a 7-inch model making up a significant portion of this stock.

Last week retailer Carphone Warehouse made the 9.7-inch HP TouchPad available for pre-order in the UK with the 16GB and 32GB renditions of the tablet to set wannabe users back £399 and £479 respectively when the device launches in July.
