HP TouchPad

HP discontinued its TouchPad last week. Now the price of the TouchPad has plunged. The 16GB costs $99.99 and the 32GB TouchPad costs $149.99. The new price is reflected on HPs' product page. However, the lower price does not seem to have spread around to other online retailers yet.

This new price is $300 less than the recently reduced TouchPad price. HP lowered the price by $100 earlier this month. The 16GB tablet originally cost $499.99. The new low price gives people an opportunity to try out a tablet for $100. Anyone buying the TouchPad should keep it mind that is had been discontinued. The low price could temporarily hurt sales of other tablets, including the iPad, while the TouchPad supply lasts.

Update: Best Buy says it will not be selling the discounted TouchPads.
