Google Pay Fee On Instant Transfer: An Indication Of Google’s Aggressive Monetisation Strategy?

Google has decided to levy fee on instant payment, starting from the US market.

At HP’s webOS event Wednesday, the company officially unveiled the next generation of webOS devices, including the new tablet, the TouchPad. The TouchPad is HP’s big move into the white-hot tablet space. Looking at the specs and the form factor, it’s clear the TouchPad has taken a lot of cues from Apple’s iPad, while still giving the device a flair of Palm panache.

Physically, the TouchPad aligns with the leaks Engadget obtained last month. Cross pollinate an iPad and a Palm Pre and you get the TouchPad.

Check out this video from HP’s site:

The TouchPad’s physical dimensions should be very familiar to iPad owners:

  1. 1.6 lbs
  2. 13.7 mm thin
  3. 9.7-inch 1024×768 display
  4. 1.3-megapixel webcam for video calling
  5. Stereo speakers

When we go under the hood, what we see looks similar to the Motorola Xoom and the rumored specs of the iPad 2.

The TouchPad includes:

Dual-core 1.2 Ghz Snapdragon processor

  1. 16 or 32GB of storage
  2. 802.11 b/g/n for Wireless
  3. Bluetooth 2.1
  4. 1 GB of RAM

3G and 4G versions of the device will hit the market after the Wi-Fi model arrives and feature on-board GPS.

On the accessory front, HP will be releasing an innovative Touchstone dock that acts as both a cables-free charging station and a stand.

For the expected release date, HP says “summer” and is staying mum on the price for now. WebOS looks great on a larger device and we look forward to seeing what apps head its way.
