A stampede is currently on at many online retailers in USA and Canada to buy HPs Tablet at unbelievably low price.
HP has decided to kill the TouchPad, but it wants its device to go out with a big bang. Perhaps that is the reason why the company has reduced the price of the WiFi only 16GB model Tablet to mere $99. The price of the 32GB flavour is now $149. This is an unbelievably low price for a Tablet PC that is being powered by a 1.2 Ghz Snapdragon processor, and is using an operating system of the ease of use and sophistication of webOS.
Suddenly thousands of users have realised that this is one great device and there is an unprecedented rush at the online retailers in Canada and USA. There are rumours that every 16GB model of the TouchPad that HP has built has already been bought. Many major online retailers have already placed hung their out of stock signs. People have now developed a new liking for the webOS. Some aficionados have spent the entire day in looking for one.
The Internet is full of complaints from people who are unable to get hold of the TouchPad at the new fire sale prices.
