Amazon.com leaks Windows Home Server details

Once again, the Seattle e-tailer gave consumers an early peek at the price and specs for a hot new product: The first Windows Home Server units, from Hewlett-Packard, will cost $599 for a 500 gigabyte version and $749 for a terabyte.

Computerworld has a write-up of the gaffe.

If Amazon has it right, the servers will be available Sept. 15, putting to rest recent speculaton about an Aug. 27 launch date.

Microsoft’s Home Server team blog clarified the Aug. 27 reports but hasn’t said anything yet about the Amazon slip.
