HP is running a $100 instant rebate promotion this weekend only (Friday – Sunday) on their new webOS 3.0 TouchPad when you purchase the tablet online directly from the HP.com website.
I have mixed feeling about the TouchPad. In the time since I purchased my Palm Pre, the webOS market share has failed to catch on. Then, once it became painfully clear that HP and Sprint would not bringing webOS to the Pre and Pixi smartphones, nor where they going to released updated models, HP “graciously” offered early Pre owners $50 off the TouchPad. Now, less than 60 days after launch, HP is cutting the price of the TouchPads by $100. This weekend only, the 16GB TouchPad is $299 and the 32GB model is $399.
If you are inclined to get a tablet, and don’t want an iPad, or confused by all the various Google Android tablets, then the HP TouchPad is probably the device for you. If you don’t need a massive selection of apps.
