HP Touchpad priced/dated; 7-inch webOS Opal incoming, plus 4 Honeycomb 10-inchers

The HP Touchpad and a new 7-inch webOS tablet codenamed HP Opal are among multiple incoming slates included in a new retailer roadmap leak. According to the document, acquired by PreCentral, the Touchpad will drop in June priced between $499 for the 16GB model and $599 for the 32GB version.

Meanwhile, a 7-inch webOS model will arrive in September, though details of hardware and pricing are unknown. We’re assuming this is the same Opal as leaked earlier this year, expected to measure¬†around 180 x 144 x 13mm and have a 1024 x 768 capacitive touchscreen.

Meanwhile, a 7-inch Acer – which we’re guessing is the Iconia Tab A100 – is arriving in April for $399, though it’s said to run Android 2.3 Gingerbread rather than the Android 3.0 Honeycomb Acer has previously promised. It will apparently be followed by 10-inch tablets from HTC, Dell, Acer (presumably the Iconia Tab A500) and Toshiba in June, all running Honeycomb and priced between $449 and $499.
