Best Buy this Friday has announced through an official press release the re-availability of the HP TouchPad.
Starting November 1st, the 32GB HP TouchPad will be made available both online and in-store around the United States for the original fire sale price of $149 each. The 16GB model for $99 will likely NOT be in stock. Additionally, the exact number of units available was not mentioned, nor how long the offer is expected to last, but we assume that the deal will be live until supplies are completely dried up.
So, what’s the catch? Users who missed the TouchPad months ago will now have to buy the 32GB model as a bundle. Customers must purchase “an HP or Compaq Laptop, Desktop or All-in-One computer” in addition to the $149 HP tablet.
Additionally, HP themselves may also be out of stock with no further orders down the road. According to an email sent to loopinsight.com from HP, the company claims to be “officially out of stock.”
Best Buy may be the one of the last chances to get a brand new TouchPad for the low $149 price. We expect the hunt for HP’s discontinued tablet to finally die off by the end of November at the latest.
As a reminder, the 9.7-inch TouchPad is equipped with a 1024x768 resolution display, 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon APQ8060 CPU, Adreno 220 GPU, 1GB RAM and microUSB.
