Walmart to sell HP TouchPad 32GB version for $600

WalMart will carry the 32GB version of the HP TouchPad with a $600 price tag. The news comes from a leaked internal listing obtained by PreCentral, and there's no mention of a price for the 16GB flavor ($500 sounds likely though).

The retailer will also reportedly sell a TouchPad-specific Touchstone Dock/Stand for $80, with two sets of inductive charging and communications coils (one for landscape and one for portrait TouchPad orientations). The webOS Bluetooth keyboard will go for $70, the first-party TouchPad case will carry a price tag of $50, and the AC charger is listed at $30.

The HP TouchPad is a 9.7-inch slate (1024 x 768 resolution), powered by a dual-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8060 processor, 16GB or 32GB of built-in storage, 1GB of RAM, HP's Beats audio, a micro-USB 2.0 port, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, a front-mounted 1.3MP camera, as well as a light sensor, gyroscope, accelerometer, compass, and GPS (3G model only). It measures 242 x 190 x 13.7mm and weighs around 740g. The device is running a WebOS 3.0 with true multitasking, Flash 10.1, a paneled e-mail application, a pop-up notification system like Growl, Skype support, wireless printing, calendar and e-mail integration via HP Synergy, as well as compatibility with Amazon's Kindle ebook store, Google Docs, QuickOffice, and more.

We've known for a while now that the HP TouchPad will arrive in June 2011. That being said, it's still not clear when exactly next month we'll be able to grab one, but we'll probably find out soon enough.
