HP has announced that the first connected version of its webOS tablet is to launch exclusively on AT&T;'s Mobile Broadband Network. Aimed at a mobile workforce and consumers who want multitasking on the move, the new HP TouchPad 4G will be treated to a processor boost, integrated GPS and come with 32GB of internal storage.

The AT&T; Mobile Broadband Network already operates an HSPA+ service but is also currently rolling out a new 4G LTE network across the U.S. The new HP TouchPad 4G tablet, however, is an HSPA+ Category 14 device that's capable of supporting download speed of up to 21Mbps - allowing users to work and play beyond the confines of over 20,000 AT&T; Wi-Fi hotspots or local wireless networks.

The HP TouchPad 4G will come with an upgraded 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8060 dual-core processor and, like its slightly older brothers, will benefit from HP Synergy, the ability to print wirelessly to compatible networked HP printers, a front-facing 1.3MP webcam with digital microphone, Adobe Flash support and something HP is calling Just Type, which presents option suggestions when you start typing.

Optional extras include the HP Touchstone Charging Dock, HP TouchPad Wireless Keyboard and the HP TouchPad Case.

In keeping with previous announcements, HP is keeping mum on actual pricing and availability of the 4G version of its webOS tablet, saying only that it will be out "in time for back to school."
