HP TouchPad coming to Australia on August 15th

The HP TouchPad is on its way down under to the Land of Oz, said HP Australia yesterday. With most of the larger countries in Europe already touting the webOS tablet device, and North America obviously holding the TouchPad with high regard to the potential of the platform, HP is now pushing to take the rest of the world. On August 15th, less than 3 weeks away, WebOS Internals leader Rod Whitby and the entirety of the country-continent of Australia will finally be getting the HP TouchPad. But it won't be without a hefty pricetag: $599 for 16GB and $699 for 32GB, which is actually slightly more expensive than the iPad 2 in Australia.

It's taking a bit of time to get these devices officially launched through these regional channels, but we're glad to continue seeing HP work to make the TouchPad globally available. To all of our Australian visitors, will you be getting a TouchPad when it's released next month?
