The pricing for the HP TouchPad 16GB in UK is £399 (~$643) and for the 32GB TouchPad is £479 (~$773). In the United States the tablet pricing is $499.99 for the 16GB version and $599.99 for the 32GB version. The pricing of the device looks on par with other tablet devices available in the market.
HP is betting big in the tablet market with their WebOS 3.0 platform and had also said that they would be manufacturing PCs and Laptops which will run the software. The launch of the TouchPad in July should give them an idea on how consumers react to it. It will also be pitting WebOS 3.0 against Apple’s iOS which runs iPad and iPad 2 and Google’s Android which powers several tablets including the Motorola Xoom and Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.
So if you are looking forward to get your hands on the HP TouchPad, you can pre-order the HP TouchPad tablet for US from Amazon or directly pre-order it for UK from here.
