HP TouchPad to be launched in June after all

When HP announced the WebOS-based TouchPad, the company said the tablet would be released “in the summer.”

Unfortunately, this doesn’t mean April (as recently rumored). Fortunately, it also does not mean July, and neither August.

According to PreCentral, Leo Apotheker (HP CEO) has confirmed at the most recent HP Summit that the TouchPad would be available starting June. Most probably, it will be released in the US first, with global availability to follow shortly.

Prices for the HP TouchPad are expected to start at $499 (this will likely be the price of the 3G-less, 16GB version). We’ll bring more details soon.
