If the iPad is not your thing, nor the Galaxy Tab 10.1, Optimus Pad, BlackBerry PlayBook then you might want to consider the webOS HP TouchPad. This will officially land in Canada on July 15th with 2 versions: 16GB for $519.99 and the 32GB for $619.99. HP is showing the love for early adopters of the Pre by giving $50 off the 32GB model.
HP noted on their official blog that Through July 31, you can get a $50 rebate on the purchase of a new 32GB TouchPad. Proof of ownership of a Palm Pre, Pre Plus, Pixi, or Pixi Plus (initially in the US or Canada) will be required. This mail-in rebate is good wherever you buy your TouchPad, including preorders and reservations. (Watch your email inbox for details.)
Nice to see them making it easier to get the new tablet. So if you purchased the Palm Pre from Bell or the Palm Pre 2 from Rogers and thinking about getting the TouchPad, you best be investing some time to dig up that old receipt (or visit the location you made the purchase).
