After the insanity surrounding the $99 firesale of HP�s Touchpad stock following their decision to halt tablet manufacturing, we�re able to catch an interesting glimpse of what might have been. A forum poster has claimed to have possession of the �HP Touchpad Go�, a tablet which will now never see the light of retail shelves.
The leaked photos look legitimate, and match the FCC filing for the HP Touchpad Go. This now-extinct piece of hardware would have had a 1.5Ghz processor, a noticeable upgrade from the HP Touchpad�s 1.2Ghz processor. It also would have (had?) a NFC module � which, for the uninitiated, is a type of communication that would essentially allow you to use your Touchpad as a mobile payment system (like a credit card).
Anyway, this info isn�t exactly relevant anymore, since the HP Touchpad Go will never be produced. Either way, it�s still interesting to see what HP had planned for the Touchpad�s now-defunct future.
