HP TouchPad UK release date and pricing revealed

The HP TouchPad out in July

HP has finally announced the pricing and availability of the HP TouchPad and the pricing competes with the Wi-Fi version of the iPad 2.

The HP TouchPad is HP's first stab at a tablet with WebOS. Boasting a 9.7-inch screen, the tablet has been seen as true rival to the iPad – as long as HP sorts out its app store, as there are less than 10,000 available at the moment.

But with HTML 5 compatibility and Flash 10.1 supported, the HP TouchPad is well stocked to take on both Apple and Android.

Pricing for the HP TouchPad has just been announced and you will be able to get the 16GB version of the tablet for £399. If you opt for the 32GB model, then this will retail for £479. There's no 3G version available as of yet.

The HP TouchPad UK release date is 15 July, but you can start pre-ordering the device as of 19 June.
