    Just to confirm this - in the Q&A at the HP event yesterday, Leo confirmed that it would be out in June followed by wave after wave of technology.

    I wonder who got chewed out by Leo after the 9 February announcement resulting in the acceleration of the TP to market?

    On what are you basing the assumption that there was an acceleration to market?

    They always said it was coming out in summer. June is summer last I checked.

    Summer officially begins at 17:16 UTC on 21 Jun 2011 and ends at 09:05 UTC on 23 Sep 2011. If they can get the Touchpad in customer hands by 10:15 PDT on 21 June, they will have beaten their estimated release window of "summer."
    If I show up at your door, chances are you did something to bring me there.

    Here is a leak from Staples tablet guide.

    Staples' slate of slates leaks out, corroborates Samsung 8.9-incher and the HP Opal?



    You'll see that Samsung's 8.9-inch Galaxy Tab makes a cameo, as does the 7-inch HP Opal we told you about early this year, and both the BlackBerry PlayBook and Dell Streak 7's appearances align with recent rumors we've seen. The only outlier is an April release date for the Motorola Xoom WiFi, which ads peg for March 27th. The rest is practically a who's who of upcoming tablets, so we'll spare you the full churn of the rumor mill.

    Newer HP Touchpad video: Mid-Summer Launch(July) and 5MP FF Camera

    "Planned availability this summer"

    ""Coming this summer," with pricing to be determined "at a later date." Bah, humbug!"

    So with availability estimates from several sources (including HP) described as a vague "sometime this summer" (for the wifi only), it's ironic that HP isn't as confident in a strongly specific "June 2011" date as several folks on these boards seem to be. So if the June date is true, it reflects a more concerted effort by HP to get the device out earlier than originally planned.

    But it added the definitive "coming soon" release date to both HP devices, so you can be sure Staples is another good source for upcoming device release information.

    June is still sometime this summer. HP tightening up the release date doesn't indicate an "acceleration to market", it means they're on target.

    Pundits claims that it would be late summer wasn't HP's claims. They've always simply said it had a planned summer release.

    HP just announced the pricing of the TouchPad for the European market:

    WiFi 16GB: 499€
    WiFi 32GB: 599€

    Release date will be in June. The 3G version with 32 GB will start shipping around 6 weeks after the release of the WiFi-ony-version with the following pricing:

    WiFi+3G 32GB: 699€

    Presumably, they will just change the € to a $, just like Apple does.

    They also mentioned, that the Touch-to-Share-Technology is a combination of bluetooth and NFC. So, the Pre3 and the TouchPad will have a NFC-chip inside.
