HP 2710p tablet passes FCC

Long in development, HP's Compaq 2710p Tablet PC has finally been approved by the FCC, clearing the way for an American release. Aside from being a 12.1-inch convertible tablet, the 2710p has been known mainly for its brushed-metal exterior, and support for 802.11n; now however some of its other specifications have been revealed. These include an Intel GM965 motherboard, with 1 to 4GB of RAM and a Core 2 Duo ULV (Ultra-Low Voltage) processor; 802.11a/g/n wireless will be matched with Bluetooth. Hard drive space can configured from 60 to 100GB.

One of the rarer features of the laptop should be its built-in cellular broadband, coming in the form of 1x EVDO, and an unspecified speed of HSDPA (most likely the standard 3.6Mbps). While cellular connections are increasingly common in portable computers, most are limited to one major protocol. The launch of the 2710p is expected within the next two months. [via PC Joint]
