HP’s TouchPad was announced about a month ago, but no solid shipping date has been set. I’m not sure what it is about companies announcing products with no real information on availability, but tablets seem to be especially prone to this phenomenon. We heard June, then we heard April, and now HP’s Leo Apotheker, in a Q&A, has said that yes, June is the month it will ship, alongside the new Pre 3 and Veer.

He also remarked that he wanted webOS to make its PC debut this year — though a full roll-out would have to wait until 2012. I’m interested by skeptical. PCs are PCs and tablets are tablets. I think crossing the breeds may make for a bit of a mutt.
