HP TouchPad refreshed 64GB slate coming

The HP TouchPad hasn’t actually touched down in the UK yet.

Although it is expected to arrive this month, with prices starting at £399 for the 16GB wi-fi version of the 9.7 inch slate.

Other specs include a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera and of course HP has put webOS 3.0 on board to differentiate this effort from the majority of Android tablets.

Yet despite being on the cusp of release, a leak has already indicated that HP has plans to refresh the TouchPad in short order.

A number of reports have popped up stating that HP is going to push out a 64GB version of the slate, in line with the iPad, for those who need some serious storage space.

Not only that, but the processor will allegedly be a tad faster, and a white version of the TouchPad is on the cards. Given that the launch of the refreshed model is anticipated this summer – at least in the US anyway – some folks might be persuaded to wait for the slightly improved model.

Still, if you’re not interested in the extra storage (which will of course cost quite a bit more), then the processor stepping up slightly isn’t exactly setting the world alight in terms of changes.

We’d expect HP will keep the price in line with the iPad as it has done thus far, so the 64GB wi-fi version should weigh in at £560. A 4G TouchPad is also apparently on the cards for release at the same time over in America.
