HP TouchPad to be priced at $499.99?

Yesterday HP Canada put up their registration page for their new “TouchPad” tablet. This runs webOS, has a 10.1-inch display, 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. The only hint of it being available was sometime this Summer and no price points. We received a tip from a retail outlet presentation slide that points to the TouchPad being released sometime in June/July period with the price coming in at the $499.99 mark.

We’re getting more info but thought we’d pass this on. This price is in line with all the other tablets currently in market: iPad 2, Xoom, PlayBook, Galaxy Tab.

Temping or passing?
(Thanks tipster!)
