HP Compaq gave us a sneak peak at their Android-powered netbook at the most recent CES and Mobile World Congress, but they’ve remained rather tight-lipped on the device’s specifications (even after it’s passed FCC). We’ve already gotten our taste at an initial list of expected specs, but HP has officially confirmed them today.

As expected, it’ll run on Qualcomm’s 1ghz Snapdragon processor, 3G connectivity, 512mb of RAM and ROM, and 16 gigs of internal flash storage. The netbook does house a touchscreen (interesting, but sensible) though it looks to be resistive. Not sure how that’ll fair with some of you guys, but I suspect HP has a good reason for that decision.

You can head over to their site now to check out the full run-down for yourself, including a list of preinstalled apps that you’ll be able to use (we’re still not sure if this thing will have access to the Android Market, but it’d be hard to consider this a computing device without software extensibility).
