Is a smaller TouchPad on the way?

Tags: ,

HP is looking to release a 7″ TouchPad tablet to go along with the 9.7″ version due next month, if a report from Taiwan Economic News is to be believed.

The report cities sources within Inventec Corp., a Taiwanese manufacturer who also produces notebook computers for HP. The contractor has said to received an order of between 400,000 and 450,000 from HP, which comprises of both the 9.7″ tablet, and a second, unannounced tablet that will feature a 7″ display.

No further details about the smaller tablet was reported, although it would likely have the same specifications as its bigger brother, unless HP is planning to launch a different series altogether.

The 9.7″ HP tablet is set to release on July 1.
