    HP Touchpad on sale for $99.00

    Just saved $600.00 and bought two 16GB for $99 each - 32GB is going for $149. Then I'll see what happens.

    The reason of course is because HP dropped everything WebOS related. For $99.00, I think just the IPS screen is worth that alone, better than any cheap Chinese knock-off tablet. Maybe it will replace my headrests, for the rear entertainment system, maybe the community will figure out a way to do it, maybe somebody (Vizio?) will buy WebOS from HP and start selling tablets. Will see.

    Deal link.

    Free shipping too. Should be here in 5-7 days.

    Hope this helps. Unless you're set on a big screen Android (and you have the $$$ money); from $399 to $99? I think this is a great deal, all things considered even.

    Cheers,

    Ripp.

    Apparently the 16GB went out of stock now, but the 32 is still live.

    Word is HP wrote off $100M to offer this price, pretty soon this will spread, I hope. I want to see a great community (HP reportedly made 500K) using this ;-)

    Just tried to buy the 32gb, price is 499.99 (before they sold out on HP's site)

    Do I need to know of a secret hand shake?

    Sorry I didn't get your message earlier.

    Nope, after trying like 4 times, I just followed the instructions on the first couple of posts - somebody was repeating it every 4 or so pages. After registering on the HP site, I used another browser (instead of clearing cookies, or using stealth mode), clicked on the link in the very first post, then it changed to $99.00.

    I didn't get my email confirmation still, so maybe some crazy bought a lot and messed things up. Now they're saying on the mod's post (2nd post on the link) that HP says the order should be completed , but not by now; it's only the sheer volume that got them.

    It's now reported OOS at target and others, I know Fry's returned all their inventory to HP, now everyone's guess what's going to happen tomorrow at Bestbuy, Staples, etc.

    Ripp,

    If you want to part with one of yours, I would be open to a trade.
