Spanish website Chipset, who got some hands-on time with the device. They're claiming that the HP is on track to launch the device in June, with availability in Europe before September with a starting price of $540. Other revelations include the expected use of an Atom CPU (not sure if it's Pinetrail), a back-mounted camera, and memory card reader. No word on when this Windows 7 touchscreen device may hit the United States, though HP may wait until iPad mania calms down before introducing their tablet to market.
