Though HP has yet to confirm rumors of a late August release for the TouchPad 4G, the tablet did make an appearance on Amazon over the weekend.
According to the listing, the webOS 3 slate, which will support AT&T’s HSPA+ network instead of its upcoming LTE network, is available for pre-order and will cost $700 for the 32GB model. The TouchPad 4G will feature a 1.5 GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1, a micro-USB port and a 6300 mAh battery. It will also sport a 9.7-inch (1024 x 768) touchscreen and a 1.3MP front-facing webcam.
In additional TouchPad news, HP is giving $50 worth of App credit to customers who bought the TouchPad between July 1 and August 4. Users should receive an e-mail notifying them within the week. Those eligible will have until December 31 to use the credit before it expires.
This promotion comes right after HP announced a $100 discount for the TouchPad from August 5 to August 7. Unfortunately, if you took advantage of the weekend deal, you do not qualify for the credit.
