A day after HP decided to “discontinue operations for webOS devices” HUGE price cuts are happening for the HP TouchPad. Think, you can own a piece of mobile history. Seal it up, store it and perhaps one day you can sell it for a couple hundred bucks! Looks like retailers are hoping to clear their massive inventory; Future Shop, Best Buy and The Source have all slashed the 16GB version to a dirt cheap $99.99, the 32GB falls to $149.99. At this price it’s something to consider, but only if you’re happy with staying with the current webOS version.
Future Shop and Best Buy have this “sale” on until August 22nd, The Source is a bit longer and goes until August 30th.
Update: PreCentral is reporting that the sale actually will start tomorrow, but I’m sure you can walk into any of the above retailers and get one tonight. They will not turn you away. “HP will be lowering the price of the TouchPad beginning Saturday 8/20/11. This is the lowest price ever for the TouchPad so please post it as soon as it goes live. 16GB TouchPad- $99; 32GB TouchPad – $149”
Update #2: London Drugs and Staples will be joining in on the sale tomorrow too.
