by Reads (8,130)

A spec sheet for the HP webOS tablet has leaked, revealing key details about the PalmPad, including its official unveiling at CES 2011.

According to a reporter at FoxNews that obtained the info, HP has three PalmPad models lined up for CES, each running webOS version 2.5.1 and sporting slightly different hardware specs. At least one model is said to have a 9.7-inch screen, similar to the iPad.

The PalmPad will have WiMAX support and run on the Sprint 4G network. In addition, it will feature a mini-HDMI port, USB 3.0 port, “multi-switch” similar to the one found on the Palm Pre, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing and 3-megapixel rear camera and two LED flashes.

The PalmPad will weigh 1.25 pounds and feature rounded edges, like a Kindle. Finally, it will be thinner than the iPad.

There is also a fourth version in the works with an 8.9-inch screen, and HP is designing it exclusively for students. That PalmPad may ship in time for the 2011 school year.

TabletPCReview predicted the HP PalmPad may make an appearance at CES in our CES tablet preview. The company has been very quiet on the tablet front since it launched the Slate 500 earlier this Fall.
