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

Cool if you're near Charlotte let me buy ya a beer haha. I'm actually not a huge dick in real life.

Anyway I refuse to wait outside in stores in a line before one opens, but I went to a few places pretty early this morning and everyone appears to be sold out. To be honest I did not anticipate this kind of a response here in Charlotte and figured I could get my hands on one, but alas...

It would be cool to play around with one or jailbreak it and throw Android on since WebOs is officially dead, but maybe it's for the best. Is it even worth $99 now? Sorta like a "Fire Sale" on Betamax VHS machines back in the day. Sure you could use them for a while and they were cheap..but ummm, yeah. Obsolete really fast.

My wife is actually from Matthews, so I'm in the area every few months or so.
