Information about HP’s HSTNN-W75C has been trickling in ever since the device first appeared on the FCC back in December. We spotted a lone pic of the device last week, and today we got a read on the device’s battery.
According to FCC filings from HP today, the HSTNN-W75C uses an HP battery with the model number HSTNN-OB45. This is the same battery used in the HP Compaq 2710P ultralight tablet PC that was released back in 2007.
We’re not sure that’s good news, since the 2710P is a pretty dated device. I can’t imagine that the form factor of the HSTNN-W75C is much different than the 2710P if the two devices are using the same battery. Hopefully, the HSTNN-W75C will be a bit more innovative than the HP Compaq 2710P platform in other respects.
We first spotted the HP HSTNN-W75C tablet on the FCC back in December 2009. Today, the first picture of the device surfaced on the FCC, thanks to a filing by Qualcomm.
Unfortunately, the pic of the HSTNN-W75C (above) doesn’t reveal much. It is interesting to note, however, that the device appears to have a retractable antenna, which is likely used by the HSTNN-W75C’s Gobi2000 WLAN card.
We don’t know much more at this point, but we’ll keep you updated as we learn more.
