HP may have decided to terminate its webOS devices but that doesn’t mean existing tablets that have already been built will magically disappear. And since they won’t be selling anymore webOS tablets in the future, they’ve decided to get rid of the existing tablets the fastest way they know how to (well, second fastest if you include incinerating them all) – by having a fire sale!
In a memo that was sent out to HP affiliates today, the company has announced that the price of the TouchPad tablet will be reduced by 70-75%! Starting tomorrow (and in some stores, today) you’ll be able to purchase the 16GB TouchPad at $99 and the 32GB TouchPad at $149. No word about the 64GB model though. Talk about low, low prices! Taking into consideration the average cost of a digital photo frame or an eBook reader and you know you have a great deal on your hands. Maybe the sudden surge in sales will make HP reconsider their decision. Will any of you be picking up the TouchPad now that it’s going to be dirt cheap?
