TI Blaze may make webOS tablet easy

Texas Instruments has unveiled a Blaze tablet design built for developers. The design puts its newer 1GHz OMAP4 chip behind a 10-inch, multi-touch screen and a modular design that can add any number of features. It has the option of an external DLP pico projector alongside camera modules, 3G, FM radio, GPS and Wi-Fi.

The reference slate has 1GB of RAM and 32GB of flash as well as a raft of expansion, ranging from HDMI video output to an SD card slot and USB. An accelerometer and gyroscope make it ready for games and other motion-sensitive apps.

Developers will get the Blaze tablet by the end of August for an unspecified price. Customers haven't been named, but the tablet may be suited to a customer like Palm, which has used TI OMAP3 chips in the Pre and Pre Plus. Its soon-to-be parent company HP has openly stated that it wants to make webOS tablets. [via SlashGear]
