HP TouchPad shows up in Walmart's database; $599 for the 32GB model
Shortly after getting its own teaser page on Bestbuy's website, the HP TouchPad has been spotted in yet another retailer's database. It is now known that Walmart will most probably carry HP's 9.7-inch tablet as well, and the evidence is said to be coming straight from the store's internal computer system.

If the screenshot of Walmart's database is to be believed, the device will be priced at $599 for its 32GB Wi-Fi-only version, which seems to coincide with what earlier HP TouchPad leaks pointed at. In comparison, that is exactly what an iPad 2 and a BlackBerry PlayBook with the same storage capacity and no 3G connectivity cost today. It is very likely that an entry-level, 16GB Wi-Fi-only model with a presumed price of $499 will be available too, but no hints regarding that one have been leaked out so far.

Unfortunately, an exact release date for the HP TouchPad is still nowhere in sight, but we are hoping to see it in stores as early as next month.
