    From this Boston article: HP realigns PC unit with eye toward WebOS sales - The Boston Globe

    To quote:

    Bradley said in an interview that July 1 was a “soft launch’’ for the TouchPad and that more advertising will start on July 17. The company also plans to issue a software update for the tablet in about 10 days, he said.
    let the counting begin! i have BIG hopes for this update...

    Kindle Definitely. Movie store not as much because of Hulu, Crackle, and Amazon. Not as big a miss as initially thought. Been enjoying many movies on my TPad.

    As for the other updates. All my Apps Open in 2 "pulses" (i.e. seconds) and it's all been smooth as silk. iPad2 users have been impressed and keep asking to "check out the TouchPad for a minute".

    NDA NDA NDA!

    Good news coming soon though!

    And yes, I am enjoying the heck out of my TouchPad, while timidly waiting for the OTA update on it like most other folks.

    10 days would make it Thurs July 21st, 4 days after the big advertising begins. I wonder if reviewers will get a few days earlier so they can publish updated opinions before the weekend of the 22nd or whether everyone gets it the same time and HP is hoping for updated reviews before August.

    ps original story is on Bloomberg

    'about 10 days' is NOT the same as 'in 10 days.' Just saying...

    They have the retail channel depending on them not to mention other channel partners and the UK launch. They have advertising dollars beginning to be spent. 10 days sounds like either everyone gets it by that weekend or some start getting it a few days before and that is why the vague phrasing.

    I have little doubt it will be here by that time, the real question is what is included in the update as the previous posters asked.

    Yep. In other words: Not selling well = "soft launch"

    God, these guys & their corporate BS talk. They must think we're all stupid.

    and since when did this Todd bradley guy get instant credibility. He does work for HP after all. I will believe it when I see it

    No, soft launch means little or no advertising. There had already been leaks that the major advertising push was to begin mid-July.

    Still, not having the software ready mostly probably depressed sales expectations for even a soft launch, lets help the OTA will alter the landscape.

    As much as I want my Kindle collection on my TouchPad, I think the ability to negotiate http proxies and edit Office documents are higher on my list. I'll carry my Kindle separately for six+ months, but my TouchPad is going back at the end of the month if it's still a paperweight at the office.

    All I can say is "NDA." But the "NDA" for the "NDA" is really "NDA."

    Soft launch as in the device launches, but advertising doesn't ramp up until a few weeks after launch. Look at all of the adverts that the Veer has now...

    By that logic the ipad2 was a soft launch.
