Carphone Warehouse and Costco open up Pre-Ordering for the TouchPad (Costco adds Free Cover)

For those of you in the UK who are waiting to get your hands on an HP TouchPad, we have some great news. Carphone Warehouse has now opened up their pre-order sales portal for the Wifi only version of the device. Pricing is as we expected; a 16GB TouchPad will set you back £399 and the 32GB version rolling in at £479.

On the pre-order page that Carphone Warhouse has set up you'll see highlights of all the specs and information that's needed, but we're guessing you already know the full run down of those by now. If you're in the UK and want to be among the fist to get an HP TouchPad, you can head on over to the Carphone Warehouse right now for the full details and start the ordering process. Oh, and a quick note, we'll advise you to ignore the bit about there being 15,000 apps available on launch. Just chalk that one up as a typo and keep on our merry way.

Back in the US, Costco has also launched their TouchPad Pre-Order page, and they're adding a free cover to sweeten the deal (and you thought they wouldn't carry it...). Pricing is the same as we've seen elsewhere ($499 for 16GB, $599 for 32GB - Wifi only) but with that free cover added in it might just make the trip to Costco worth it. Don't forget to checkout the videos that are on the product page as well, glad to see them getting put to use somewhere.

Have you see the TouchPad listed for pre-order anywhere else? Send an email to tips@precentral.net and let us know. The list of retailers is growing every day!
