Leaks reveal HP’s Palm Topaz and Opal tablets

Tablets to be launched officially on the 9th of February

Recent leaks suggest that American multinational information technology corporation Hewlett-Packard, is looking forward towards launching the webOS 2.0 based HP Palm Topaz and Opal tablets. The Opal is said to feature a 1,024 x 768-pixel display, the Topaz as well will follow suit on the resolution aspect.

Some of the feature sets which will be part of the HP Palm Topaz and Opal tablets would be, Tap-to-Share, which with a simple simultaneous tapping action allows users to easily transfer a website, document, or song from the phone to the tablet or the reverse as the case may be. Another interesting feature to be bundled along with the tablets is the, Beats-branded audio. In addition there is also a wireless charging docking station which performs the functionality of converting the tablets into a GPS device, alarm clock, or digital photo frame thus making the device multifunctional.

The Palm Topaz can be said to resemble Apple’s iPad in terms of size, while the Opal tablet is somewhat stunted and broader when compared to Samsung’s bestselling Galaxy Tab. The gadgets are said to offer support for multitasking that enables up to 20 apps to run simultaneously without effort which will be able to enjoy cloud storage space of up to tens of gigabytes.

If things go according to plan, HP will roll out its tablets next month on the 9th of February.  The Topaz tablet is expected to arrive sooner than the Opal, with reports claiming Topaz to ship about three months before Opal.
