A series of leaked blueprints suggests that Palm may use the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in January to unveil a new tablet device running WebOS to take on the iPad.
The PalmPad range will consist of three tablets developed as part of work on the ill-fated Streak tablet, with a fourth model planned for students, according to blueprints seen by Fox News.
The designs show a device slightly slimmer than the iPad with around the same screen size, along with front and back cameras at 1.3-megapixels and 3-megapixels respectively. The PalmPads will run WebOS 2.5.1, and internet connectivity is via Wi-Fi or Sprint's 4G service.
Another hardware improvement over the iPad is an HDMI-out port to allow the device to display on larger screens, and built-in USB 3.0 connectivity rather than Intel's Light Peak.
The academic version will be slightly smaller with an 8.9in screen, and should be available in time for the 2011 autumn academic year.
