I got a letter from Hanvon updating the information about their tablets. Unlike the HP slate, they are not terminated.
Hanvon TouchPad B10 ( BC10C Intel ULV743 at 1.3Ghz multitouch )
It's in volume production now, shipping end of May in China, June in EU. No word about US sales yet. It will be yours for 699 euros from EU retailers.
We should get more info about the sellers and dates soon.
Hanvon Touchpad F10 ( Intel®Atom Z530 at 1.6GHz electromagnetic )
It's not yet in volume production, it might take 2 to 3 months before that happens.
It won't have multitouch, it has electromagnetic screen which works only with supplied pen.
It will cost "much less" than B10. Again, we should get the dates and numbers soon.
There will/might be a version with both capacitive multitouch and electromagnetic screen in future.
Both tablets have mouse pointer too..
