The Wi-Fi version of the HP TouchPad tablet will be available in the UK from mid-July, HP announced today (9 June).
HP’s first webOS tablet will be available direct from HP, selected retailers and commercial resellers with the option of either 16GB or 32GB of internal storage for around £399 and £479 respectively. Pre-orders will begin on 19 June.
Jon Rubinstein, senior VP and general manager, Palm Global Business Unit at HP, said: ‘What makes the HP TouchPad a compelling alternative to competing products is webOS. 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.’
With webOS, HP TouchPad users have a next-level multitasking experience, access to the web, premium audio playback with stereo speakers and Beats Audio technology, the ability to find information on the device or in the cloud by the Just Type feature, integrated access to their information with HP Synergy, and HP’s exclusive Touch to Share capability for sharing web addresses between HP TouchPad and compatible webOS phones.
Optional accessories for HP TouchPad include the HP Touchstone Charging Dock, the HP TouchPad Wireless Keyboard and the HP TouchPad Case.
