by bogdan_iho on February 26, 2011


Recently, the tech giant HP has officially announced at the Think Beyond event in San Francisco the HP TouchPad specs. However, the release date, pricing or availability weren’t disclosed. They just said that the Hp TouchPad release date will arrive this summer, and that the price will be announced at a later date.

So, that leaves a lot af room for rumors and speculations. People are very eager to see this device not only because of its specs, but probably because it’s the first tablet that runs webOS. One of BGR’s trustworthy sources says that HP will release Touchpad on the market before the end of June. From this source we also found out that Hp Touchpad price will be $699, less than the price announced for a possible market rival, Motorola Xoom – $799.

    The only problem HP now has is by the time they release the product new Android tablets with the quad-core Tegra 3 processor will be hitting the market. . . and probably for around that price or even less, and I’m sure the Xoom will have dropped a couple bills by that time.

    HP needs to step up their releases if they want to compete.
