HP TouchPad Go spotted in the wild
Well, HP is certainly not putting the above tablet into mass production anytime soon, if at all, but it's still nice to see the Opal/TouchPad Go in a real-life picture.
The 7-inch TouchPad Go would've been a great little tablet if it had been released to market. Including a 7-inch planel with a resolution of 1024 x 768, the Go also would've included a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon, 1GB of RAM, and dual cameras. The back is of the 5MP variety.
Unlike the bigger TouchPad, though, the Go has its physical home button on the bottom when holding the device in landscape mode. Other than that very minor differentiation, the Go and the normal TouchPad are incredibly similar in terms of design. Depending on who you ask, that can be either a good or bad thing. I've heard reports of poor build quality on TouchPads though, so I think I'll stick with the latter option.
HP doesn't know what its doing with webOS just yet. If the company decides, after all this bull, to actually keep the software, I hope the Opal/TouchPad Go is the first thing to come out after the decision.
