HP TouchPad fire sale 99$ CAD

Recommended Posts

So this should be taken with a grain of salt. I was not in this meeting. Everything I'm writing is 3rd party.

One of my former students works for BB. They were scheduled to have a TP training this am that got changed to a future of webOS meeting by HP.

The HP rep told BB employees that the TP hardware was holding back the performance of webOS. HP knew this and has been in talks with both HTC and Samsung. He mentioned Samsung an HTC being upset with Google and that they were both interested in making webOS phone and tablets. He noted HTC's contract with Beats Audio.

The HP rep said the 'fire sale' was not the original plan but that losses are being considered advertising expenses. "Once you use webOS we believe you won't want to use anything else." Estimated 2 million TP would sell in the 'fire sale.'

The HP rep was very optimistic. He left saying watch for an announcement within the next two weeks about a hardware partner. Possibly both HTC and Samsung.

The Best Buy employees all left 'excited' about webOS's future feeling like they were in the mist of something very big!

Just telling you what I've heard. Hope its true. I'm not trying to sell false hope here.

It should be noted that the meeting lasted 6 hours

Found this on pre-central... One can hope seeing as Samsung has a "big announcement" Sept 1st :p

Just an FYI. It seems some online stores still have it in stock for $399. When I inquired about the price drop they mentioned that they will probably receive the memo and hence the price drop on Monday. Might be a good idea to look at those online stores Monday morning.

Away From Keyboard :p

It's probably too late, but for those in Australia, Harvey Norman is selling the 16gb for 98AUD and the 32gb for 148AUD, starting 2PM AEST today.

Our local store was mostly sold out due to preorders, but managed to get 6 of them (the last ones). They were "limit of 1 per customer", just FYI.

I really want a 32 Gb, if someone finds a good ass deal let me know. Im gonna be watching neowin all night on my phone. I can always sell my 16gb for how much I paid for it. I dont want to make money off of it.

*Look at ebay, its going for $300-400. People dont realize that this person posted a receipt that he bought it from bestbuy for 149.99 + tax and they are paying close to $400 for it....

I was originally not going to get a Touchpad at any price, but I wasn't expecting it to be this cheap (was thinking it would hit $350 at the lowest). At the moment tablets share the disadvantages of netbooks and smartphones without the advantages of either (pocketability or keyboard, except the Eee Pad Transformer, and it shows a lot of people think the same way that they're constantly sold out). At this price, if there's any left in stock or they re-appear due to some stock being sent back to HP, I'll give it a shot. Good way to test out the tablet form factor at a reasonable price.

Ah I missed out. Didn't even know they were going to reduce the price because I saw that they were going to return it to HP instead.

Same.

I was told that as well.

The stores said they found out at 11.30am that they were going on sale.

Began at 2 and were sold out in 45 minutes on average. FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK

I just bought from Barnes + Noble to the UK via Bundlebox. It'll be ?100 or so incl. delivery and import tax, but there's rumours of a UK sale between 9am-10am, so I may cancel this.

Rumors of a sale where - online stores, physical locations, etc etc?

I'm hoping it's true, but I wouldn't have the money for one until Wednesday, so if it does happen today, slim chance of me getting one. :(
