HP TouchPad already on Sale on Walmart.com ahead of Launch
 
 

The HP TouchPad goes officially on sale on July 1st. Earlier today several videos appeared of HP TouchPad units on display at Walmart stores. I just checked the HP TouchPad listings on the Walmart.com site and you can actually already buy them today. You can choose Site to Store or ship to home.

The HP TouchPad with 16GB sells for $498 and the HP TouchPad 32GB sells for $598.

The HP TouchPad features a 9.7-inch screen with 1024x768px resolution and runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon dual-CPU APQ8060 1.2-GHz processor. Other features of the first WebOS Tablet include 16GB or 32GB storage, Wifi 802.11n, A-GPS (3G only), Bluetooth, 1.3MP front faceing webcam, 6300mAh battery and Micro-USB port. On the software side the WebOS TouchPad supports Adobe Flash Player 10.1 beta, HP Synergy feature, virtual full QWERTY keyboard and Quickoffice Connect Mobile Suite.

Web OS is considered to be already directly competing with iOS and Android HoneyComb. The biggest question is the richness of the eco-system consisting of apps and media that HP can provide to TouchPad users in the near future.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
