1.5GHz HP TouchPad 4G unleashed

HP has announced the arrival of the HP TouchPad 4G, a suped-up version of the original packing a punchier processor and 4G connectivity via AT&T.

The HP TouchPad was released earlier this month in the US (it hits UK shops on 15 July) to much fanfare and was received warmly for the most part - Pocket-lint scored it a respectable 8/10 in our comprehensive review.

But it seems as if the computer giant doesn't want to rest on its laurels - the 32GB follow up is live already and comes complete with a 1.5GHz processor, 0.3GHz up on the original.

"TouchPad 4G is ideal for anyone who needs maximum flexibility for productivity on the go," said HP's David Gee. "It's particularly well suited for users who rely on connectivity in the field - from large corporations to small businesses and self-employed mobile professionals."

There's no pricing or release date details as of yet, just the announcement that the TouchPad 4G is designed with AT&T's DataConnect plans for tablets in mind, and that it will offer unlimited access to more than 20,000 AT&T Wi-Fi Hot Spots.
