HP TouchPad Firesale Underway, $99 for 16GB and $149 for 32GB

HP Firesale
Yesterday, HP said they were getting out of the phone and tablet business. Today they are actively taking steps to liquidate inventory. The result are some amazing prices on both the 16GB and 32GB HP TouchPads, priced at $99 and $149 respectively. This memo was sent out to HP affiliates regarding the sale, which is slated to start tomorrow.

HP will be lowering the price of the TouchPad beginning Saturday 8/20/11. This is the lowest price ever for the TouchPad so please post it as soon as it goes live.

16GB TouchPad- $99; 32GB TouchPad – $149

Best Buy and Future Shop in Canada have already started the sale.

This has to absolutely burn early adopters, as if this week wasn’t bad enough for them. For many, this is an opportunity to grab a nice piece of technology for minimal investment. Those of you who are dumpster diving, but not familiar with the TouchPad, be sure to hit up our HP TouchPad review. Note: This review was based on the $499 price tag and was not updated to reflect improvements in webOS 3.0.2.

So, are you in for one, or two or more?

    Well, I’m seriously considering a 16 gb. I’m totally invested in iOS. However, I think it may be a great “beater” tablet for my wife & kids. I’m a bit concerned about the support & apps for the device. Since it’s a dead OS…not sure. However, we can get the Kindle on it as well as play videos and games for the kiddos as well as the Internet. I’m sad to see WebOS die. If I wasn’t so in iOS, the Touchpad might’ve been my device.

    What does anyone think about a purchase of a Touchpad in this? Is it too dead?

  2. Yeah well i just purchased a 32gb touchpad from best buy…i already have an ipad 2,
    but hey a good tablet for 150 bucks…i got it just for the heck of it…now i can lug it around without worry…i think josh should buy one… :)
    now i can compare the 2 on a daily basis…thats my 2 cents….cheers…

    I scored two 32GB models. I used SAVE30HP to bring the net cost to $134 per TouchPad.

  4. care to sell me 1?

  5. ZacharyCort says:

    No it’s not too dead. I’m buying one because a team of Android developers is porting Honeycomb to it. A $100 Android tablet? Yes please.

  6. my walmart is still selling them for $599 :(

  7. I’m looking for the firesale site HELP

    Well, I scored a 32GB at my local Sam’s Club…they’re sold out everywhere in the Detroit area by 10 AM. Best Buy here has said that all Touchpad’s were recalled and wouldn’t sell them. Same with Costco and Office Max. Office Depot sold out, Staples hasn’t dropped their prices yet. Sam’s & Walmart had them at new prices, but sold out fast. Local Meijer’s MIGHT drop prices & I know some people are purchasing at full price, hoping the price drops later today and they will get the difference. Ultimately, if HP is really recalling most of their stock. just watch the website. They will have stock again and will sell their stock through their store. Hope is not lost. :)

    Congrats. Hoping my HP orders move to processing. Been stuck on verifying since last night. Been a wild ride. You’ll enjoy the TouchPad, hard not to at that price.

  10. where did you buy using that code

  11. Christopher Meinck says:

    HP’s site.

  12. The regular site is out but just tried it on business site and it won’t take it – yet on retailmenot it does say hp business is valid.

  13. also the business site lists old price, even at checkout but I figure they will adjust

  14. just get the damn thing before there gone, HP is going to refund the difference, or I bet your not even going to be charged the full price even though it said’s full price, and use your Visa so your covered.

    It guess it was insanity today with these tablets. I picked up 2 32gb models at my local Staples this morning when they first opened and paid $499 each knowing that they would price match any reductions in price in 14 days. They said they had 10 in stock and were aware of the fire sale but the price reduction hadn’t hit their system yet. I ran out of toner later in the day and went back to the store. I’m glad I brought the receipt with me. They lowered the price to $149 each and gladly refunded me my $700.
    They told me that they had sold all 10 by 10am at full price to customers who were willing to pay the full price and wait for the price match. They also told me that they must have received 150-200 phone calls and many walkins looking for the tablet.

  16. Christopher Meinck says:

    That’s a good way to put it. I’ve spent much of last night and today watching my HP orders, along with one I managed to get at Office Max. Until they ship, I’m not in the clear.

    First order of business once they ship is to order a screen protector that comes with something for the back — one thing that annoyed me about the Touchpad when I reviewed it were the fingerprints.

  17. Phoned every single shop in the L.A. area. All sold out before 10 a.m. today…

  18. Oh wow… I just ordered my 32 GB Touchpad from the Bestbuy.com website. Still some left. Also 16 GB models.
