HP has arrived late to the tablet party and though its flagship tablet TouchPad has the design to counter Apple's iPad, it does look rather challenged in terms of specifications, especially when compared with a host of recent Android tablets like Motorola Xoom.

The star of the tablets from CES 2011, Motorola Xoom is one of the tablets sporting Android 3.0. TouchPad is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon APQ8060 1.2 GHz processor. TouchPad also has enough power under its hood to take on the might of Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core processor which powers Motorola Xoom.

TouchPad comes with a 9.7-inch display with 1024x768 screen resolution while Xoom offers a larger display with 10.1-inch screen and 1280x800 in resolution. On the memory front, both TouchPad and Xoom offer 1GB RAM although TouchPad comes in both 16 GB and 32 GB configuration while Xoom comes in only 32 GB specification.

TouchPad is rather challenged when it comes to cameras as it offers a single 1.3 MP front facing camera while Xoom packs in 5-MP rear-facing and 2-MP front-facing cameras. Xoom also offers 720p video capture support. It integrates the phone and the tablet allowing access to the phone or tablet. webOS's multitasking features let a user run multiple applications at the same time.

Motorola Xoom has a 10.1-inch dispaly with a resolution of 1280×800 pixels and a 160 dpi pixel density. The HP TouchPad runs on webOS 3.0. Motorola went far forward with dual camera, 5 MP rear-facing camera with dual LED flash and a 2 MP front-facing camera for video chatting. HP TouchPad will offer 16 GB or 32 GB of internal storage and no word on memory expansion.

Motorola Xoom users can download various apps from Android Market. Motorola Xoom will hit the market on Feb 24 at $799. HP has not yet announced the price and release date of TouchPad tablet.
