HP-Palm's Topaz Tablet to Have 1.2Ghz Processor

We’ve already heard tons about the new WebOS tablets that HP plans to announce next month, however, this seems to be one launch that just keeps leaking information. Previous rumors of a 1.2GHz CPU have been confirmed thanks to a leaked spec sheet sent to Pre Central.

It looks like the Topaz (and the Opal, if HP decides to go with the same processor for its smaller model) will come packing a Qualcomm MSM8660 processor clocked to 1.2GHz. In terms of graphics you’re looking at the MSM8660’s integrated Adreno 220 GPU. We also now know that the Topaz will have 512MB of RAM, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR and a 24WHr battery that’s supposed to be good for up to eight hours. Check out the full specs below.

This new information, coupled with what we’ve heard and seen over the last few weeks, means we know pretty much everything but solid release dates and pricing. Previous reports have suggested we may see the 9.7-inch Topaz in a few months time. However, the smaller, 7-inch Opal isn’t supposed to be launching until September. Considering all the fuss over Nvidia’s Tegra 2, we’re a little worried about the Topaz and the Opal being out of date before they even arrive.

Expect to hear more on this in a couple of weeks time; HP is going to officially unveil its tablets at a San Fransisco event on February 9.
