Submission + - Engadget Leaks HP/Palm's New Slates, HP Responds (

Kilrah_il writes: HP has been building some hype towards it Feb. 9th event, titled "Think Big. Think Small. Think Beyond". Now Engadget has received internal renders of the upcoming PalmPad, which will come in two version: a 9" Topaz and 7" Opal. "We're told that units will start to arrive at Palm HQ in June as production ramps up for launch later this year — a timeline backed up by an internal marketing slide we received that lists WiFi-only, AT&T 3G, and Verizon LTE versions of the Opal arriving in September 2011, and on AT&T LTE in July 2012". both units will feature 1.2GHz processors. Topaz will probably ship earlier than Opal, which is reasonable given that a September launch date may be too late to reclaim meaningful marketshare.
In a response HP has issued a statement "Think you saw the latest on Engadget? Think again". Things just got interesting.
