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

best buy here in montreal said they were out of stock at the moment they opened their door. i know, because i was first in line. they won't let you order online either. i'm guessing corporate told them not to sell at $99, so they can flog them for $350 on ebay later. how can you be out of stock on an overstocked item literally overnight? something's fishy here.

Future Shop was selling them yesterday, so maybe Best Buy was too?

they told me they're all out of stock, looked it up on the computer. they refused to sell me a display model, because "we still need it."

ah well, i didn't really need a tablet anyway. it would have just been a nice thing to have; that's all. i guess i'll wait another year or two until prices come down to netbook levels.

Employee hoarding. Some Toronto Future Shop employees have already been fired and it's happening at almost every store.
