HP announces TouchPad release date and price

Hear that? That's the sound of a horde of iOS and Android fan boys quaking beneath their shiny slates


HP has officially silenced the whisperings and speculation by announcing that the Wi-Fi version of the TouchPad will be available in the UK from mid-July, mere hours after an Amazon-fuelled rumour stating a July 17 release. The US, France and Germany have to wait even less time to get their mitts on the shiny slate which will be hitting their shores July 1.

The 16GB and 32GB models will cost £400 and £480 respectively, which matches the RRP of the iPad 2 to the penny. All in all, this is welcome news for those who crave something a little different from a market flooded with Apples and ‘droids.
