HP’s TouchPad webOS tablet was announced with a new processor from Qualcomm that we hadn’t met yet: the Snapdragon APQ8060. Well, Qualcomm has up and outed the chipset, and it's a beast. The APQ8060 processor comes with two cores clocked at 1.2 GHz and is paired with an Adreno 220 GPU. The whole kit-and-kaboodle is a capable combo; it’s able to support cameras up to 16 megapixels, can capture and display full 1080p HD stereoscopic 3D video (including over HDMI), and can manage 3D still photos at up to 8 megapixels. Of course, the TouchPad itself doesn’t have a 3D capabilities, nor a camera any greater than 1.3 megapixels, but we’re still looking forward to finding out just how awesome the tablet will perform with this processor at its heart.
