HP TouchPad rumoured to ship in March

23 Feb 2011

Earlier this month HP unveiled three new webOS products including its first webOS tablet, the HP TouchPad.

The TouchPad comes with a 9.7-inch multi-touch display, virtual keyboard, instant-on access, support for Adobe Flash Player 10.1 beta in the browser and access to thousands of webOS applications.

HP’s announcement said that the tablet would be due out in the summer, with specific pricing and availability to be announced at a later date.

While not official, reports are suggesting that the tablet could ship in late March and be on sale in April.

The reports cite sources from HP's "upstream component partners" and say that HP is looking to ship around four to five million tablets.

HP's new fleet of webOS products also include the HP Pre3 smartphone and the HP Veer.
