Hewlett-Packard introduced its seriousness in making the most out of its US$1.2 billion investment in Palm, which was acquired last year, with an introduction of a bevy of hardware such as its take on tablet computers.

We all know by now that Apple has claimed its dominance in the tablet market, which is interesting to note because its founder Steve Wozniak used to work in HP’s calculator division in the early 1970s.

The TouchPad tablet is the first in a planned line of tablets of various forms. This pilot model weighs more than one and a half pounds, measures 13.7 mm thick, and has a 9.7-inch display with 1024 x 768 resolution.

Its features include a Qualcomm dual-core 1.2GHz processor and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera. HP displays TouchPad’s speedy performance as it demonstrated videoconferencing and 3D action gaming during its unveiling event.

The tablet also comes with loads of support for Google Docs, Dropbox, Box.net, Microsoft Word and Excel, wireless printing, and even Amazon Kindle.

It also features HP’s Synergy technology, which flawlessly syncs data among apps between WebOS-powered devices, as well as support for HP’s Touchstone charging and syncing device. Note that TouchPad’s Touchstone appears more like an easel instead of a round stone used in WebOS smartphones.

The HP TouchPad will be available in 16GB and 32GB versions. Release date has yet to be announced.
