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

Sure it's dead, but if my boss gives me the go ahead I'll grab a couple.

PS - Future shop isn't exactly best buy's Canadian retail chain. Best buy exists here in Canada too with many stores just like the US. They bought Future shop a few years back and maintain them both. Generally they carry the same stuff, but Bestbuy gives their Futureshop staff commision, but not the staff in their Bestbuy stores.
It has it's plusses and minuses. Staff are less pushy at Bestbuy, but also less helpful.
