The new iOS 4.2 is likely to be big with the introduction of multitasking functionalities on the iPad. Also, if you also own an Apple TV, the iPad will bring features like AirPlay. On the other hand, HP PalmPad should however be popular among those who are fans of the WebOS.
Things are still not clear on the HP PalmPad front. The other tablets though will come with a 1GHz processor.
Apple does not really encourage microSD support. So do not expect to store anything more than the standard 16GB, 32GB and 64GB variations even on the upcoming version. On the other hand, HP PalmPad is expected to come with 16GB and 32GB variants with support for a microSD slot.
Camera : Now this is a contentious issue right. With FaceTime here, Apple is most definitely going to offer a front-facing camera on the next generation iPad. But is that going to be enough. Expect the camera to be available on the PalmPad, but no idea on whether there would be just one or two.
Connectivity : The iPad cannot tether. But it does have Wi-Fi and 3G variants available. The PalmPad is expected to have both Wi-Fi and 3G though that is not entirely clear.
