Word in rumorville is that HP’s Touchpad will launch this June and start at $499 for the 16GB model – add $100 for the 32GB. Yup, it’s smack in line with Apple’s iPad pricing. Keep in mind that this info comes by way of an unknown retailer’s release chart that is being used to train their employees about all the impending tablets, so it very well could be conjecture. The 7-inch version of the tablet, code named Opal, is said to arrive probably sometime this September.
As of now, there is no word on pricing for the smaller Touchpad or a launch schedule for a cellular enabled version of the tablet.
