HP TouchPad UK release date and pricing confirmed

HP TouchPad to launch in the UK this July from £399

HP has revealed that its first webOS tablet, the HP TouchPad, will officially launch in the UK in mid-July following the devices arrival in the US and a number of European nations.

Set to land in America, France and Germany on July 1st, the UK will be privy to the HP TouchPad later the same month with the 16- and 32GB renditions of the webOS tablet to set early adopters back £399 and £479 respectively.

Sporting a Wi-Fi only connection the first round of HP TouchPad tablets will be available for pre-order from June 19th boasting a 9.7-inch display and a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor lining the TouchPad up as a potential competitor to Apple’s market dominating iPad and iPad 2 devices.

“What makes HP TouchPad a compelling alternative to competing products is webOS,“ proclaimed Jon Rubinstein, senior vice president and general manager, Palm Global Business Unit, HP. “The platform’s unmatched features and flexibility will continue to differentiate HP products from the rest of the market for both personal and professional use. This is only the beginning of what HP’s scale can do with webOS.”

Featuring Beats Audio technology the TouchPad integrates webOS to provide users with ‘next-level multitasking’ and improved web access. Ireland, Italy, Spain, Australia, Hong Kong, New Zealand and Singapore are all set to receive the TouchPad later in the year.
