HP TouchPad dropping June for $699?

HP is reportedly aiming for a June release of the TouchPad tablet, according to the latest leaks, with a price that undercuts Motorola's XOOM by $100. BGR's sources have tipped the launch window and a $699 sticker for the webOS slate, putting it at the beginning of HP's "summer 2011" suggestion.

However, it's worth noting that the June release is described as the month HP "was" hoping to have the slate on the market, so it's possible that plans have already changed or may alter in the intervening period. It would also make the TouchPad $70 more than the entry-level 3G-enabled iPad.
