So, HP wants £399 for the 16GB model, £479 for the 32GB version - exactly what Apple is asking for the equivalent iPads 2s.

Both are driven by a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon chip, and sport 2.4GHz 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1 and a 1.3Mp webcam too.

The 240 x 190 x 14mm gadget weighs 740g.

The TouchPad, as HP revealed t'other week, ships in July. ®
