Fire sale on HP Touch Pads is already live in Canada

Now this may be a hard deal for many to pass up, even though HP is discontinuing webOS and its hardware products. But HP will begin selling the 16GB TouchPad for $99 starting tomorrow. Likewise, the 32GB model will sell for just $50 more. 

According to the original poster, who happens to be a SlickDeals editor, we don't have any idea when the deal will start tomorrow in the U.S., but keep your eyes open and watch out for HP's server to catch on fire as people rush to purchase $99 tablets.

And for those that doubt the price cut, Future Shop (a Canadian subsidiary of Best Buy) has already dropped their price to $99. So for our Canadian readers out there, have fun while everyone in the U.S. waits for the sale to come online.

Updated @ 8:23pm EST

PreCentral grabbed a memo that HP sent to its affiliates which confirms the deal:

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

I'm gonna get one for my dad. At $99, it's a no-brainer for a web tablet.

If you can find one.. Most retail online places are still listing it at full price. HP is the only site I see it marked down, and its out of stock.

My girl was out at PC Richards with her mom and called me to say they had them. She picked me up a 16 and 32GB. 16GB models are selling on ebay for 200 bucks right now, so I figure I can sell that, and have the 32GB model for 50 bucks!
