HP TouchPad now on Amazon

The HP TouchPad has hit Amazon – the webOS slate has been treated to a placeholder for the Wi-Fi only model.

Amazon are obviously playing all coy as you’re not even able to pre-order the TouchPad yet and we’re teased with the option to:

“Sign up to be notified when this product becomes available.”

To be honest you wont be waiting that long as HP has already said that the TouchPad that it would be landing “in the summer” 😉

The listed spec on the Amazon site is:

  • 9.7” (1024×768) Touch Screen Display; 1.6lbs; 13.6mm thick
  • HP webOS Mobile Operating System; Dual Core 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon Processor; 1 GB RAM
  • 16GB/32GB Storage; Wireless 802.11bgn; Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR; Flash support
  • 1.3 MP Front-facing Camera – video chatting capability; HP Beats Audio Technology
  • Accessories: TouchPad stand and Bluetooth keyboard

The sharp-sighted amongst you will have spotted that Amazon lists the TouchPad as being equipped with a duo of USB ports. I’m guessing that this is a mistake as everything I’ve seen about the HP tablet states that the TouchPad rocks but a single microUSB port.

No mention of price anywhere – or of the HP TouchPad at all on Amazon.co.uk yet.

Tempted – or will you be looking more closely at the newly priced original iPad?
