HP TouchPad release date nears as tablet hits pre-order

Carphone Warehouse has made the Hp TouchPad available for pre-order ahead of a July release

Retailer Carphone Warehouse has opened pre-orders for the upcoming HP TouchPad tablet with the webOS device set to start shipping next month.

Offering the 16GB and 32GB storage renditions of the HP TouchPad for £399 and £479 respectively, Carphone Warehouse has confirmed that it will stock the currently Wi-Fi only tablet device next month with pre-orders open from today.

Set to launch in mid July, the HP TouchPad tablet features the webOS operating system created by mobile manufacturer Palm before it was taken over by HP last year. Featuring a 9.7-inch display, HP has out the TouchPad into direct competition with Apple’s formidable iPad 2 device.

Sporting Flash 10.1 and HTML 5 web compatibility, the TouchPad is to feature the benefits of both the iOS and Android platforms yet boasts a considerably smaller offering in its respective app store.

Can the HP TouchPad challenge the likes of the Apple’s iPad 2 and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1? Let us know what you think via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
