Been thinking of purchasing a TouchPad, but not too enthused by the price? If so then HP might be able to help out with their latest cuts and special offers.
After starting things off with a $50 mail-in-rebate for previous webOS phone owners, HP is now also offering App Credit and instant rebates. For those looking to purchase a new TouchPad, HP has cut $100 off the price tag and the 16GB and 32GB version of the tablet have now become $400 and $500 respectively. Furthermore, Staples has decided to match HP’s offers and cut out another 100 bucks; however, both offers are only valid till the end of today so you’ll probably want to hurry.
On the other hand, if you’ve already purchased a TouchPad then HP hasn’t left you out of the fun. For users that purchased the tablet from its launch date on July 1st up to the 4th of August, the company is offering $50 in credit for the device’s App Catalog. While the exact specifics still haven’t popped up, TouchPad owners should be receiving an e-mail with more details within the upcoming week.
The TouchPad is HP’s first venture into the tablet market, and features the company’s own proprietary webOS. The device comes with a 9.7” display with a 1024x768 pixel resolution, a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon dual-core processor and a front-facing 1.3MP camera.
