HP TouchPad is back..at $399!
Last weekend HP Touchpads at the fire sale price of $99 for the 16Gb version and $149 for the 32Gb version sold out almost instantly. In fact I don’t know anyone who actually bought one at those prices. Well, Future Shop and Best Buy have the discontinued tablet in their Canadian Flyers at $399 and $499. Best Buy advertises it as a New Price Drop.
What does this mean for all those who ordered from both stores at the fire sale price and had their orders cancelled mid-week for lack of stock?
Quite frankly I think this whole thing stinks..a product launch to poor reviews and sales, a price reduction and still no sales to speak of. This is followed by a liquidation sale that sold out almost instantly. Now the HP TouchPad is back on store shelves at the original price reduction. What is HP trying to do here?
What do you think? Would you buy a TouchPad for $399?
