HP’s online store for Germany has dropped TouchPad prices down to €99 (16GB), €129 (32GB), and €179 (64GB). Mostly everyone is having a fire sale on these since HP announced Thursday it was no longer going to manufacture tablets and smartphones. Barnes & Noble is selling the HP TouchPad 16GB with Wi-Fi for $101.95.
HP may be out of the tablet hardware business but, it's holding on to its software presence in the market. "The WebOS is not dead," declares Stephen Dewitt, senior vice president of Palm, which is owned by HP. The 16 GB and 32 GB models of the TouchPad currently top Amazon.com’s best-sellers list for electronics. Besides, Amazon.com is sold out of units.
