The HP TouchPad just got a bit closer to our itchy hands! Apparently, Amazon has already added HP's upcoming tablet, its Wi-Fi-only version to be exact, to its website including some stock photos and tech specifications. Pre-orders are not possible yet, nor any indication has been given whether they will ever be, but the option to sign-up for an e-mail notification when the HP TouchPad becomes available is present.
Amazon adds two accessories to the listing – a Bluetooth keyboard and a matching stand, but it is highly unlikely for these two to be included out of the box. At least 16 gigs of storage will be available on the HP TouchPad while the option for twice that amount seems also plausible. A couple of typos keep bugging us though – a reported 1.3 GHz processor speed instead of the 1.2 GHz dual-core Snapdragon we are expecting to see, as well as 2 USB ports where the microUSB port should be noted. We hope these do not confuse too many people.
Who knows, we may see the HP TouchPad coming out in April after all, just like the rumors are suggesting. Waiting for it until June will not make much sense, especially with the Motorola XOOM already out on the market, the iPad 2 ready to launch in days, and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 expected to hit the shelves pretty soon.
