by Reads (2,717)

The HP TouchPad may match the Apple iPad 2 in at least one department: pricing. According to a leaked Walmart internal document, the 32GB TouchPad will cost $599 at launch, matching the 32GB Wi-Fi Apple iPad 2. There is no word on the pricing for the 16GB unit (Apple sells the 16GB iPad for $499), nor did the leak reveal the release date, which many assume will be in June.

The same leak also revealed a handful of HP TouchPad accessories. The TouchStone Dock and Stand, which will wirelessly charge the TouchPad, will cost $79.88.  Also revealed was a webOS Bluetooth keyboard for $69.88, official HP TouchPad case for $49.88, and an AC charger for $29.88.

The TouchPad packaging size was also leaked. It will reportedly measure 9.5 x 10 x 1.78 inches and weigh three pounds.

The HP TouchPad will have a 9.7-inch display with a 1024 x 768 resolution and run the webOS operating system complete with Flash support. It will weigh 1.5 pounds and be powered by a 1.2 GHz, dual-core Snapdragon processor. It will have dual cameras, b/g/n Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 2.1.
