Just in time of the much needed software update, the TouchPad is available for more than $100 less.
HP released the first webOS tablet amidst software issues that gave it bad ratings in the initial reviews. Two days ago HP released an update that brought several improvements. And now the HP TouchPad is marked down by $100 and sells for $399.99 in most stores including Amazon. Today though you can save another $20 on the HP TouchPad as Woot is offering it for $379.99 + $5 shipping.
If you do not need access to the vast app offerings of Apple and Android than the HP TouchPad is at this price the best tablet computer you can buy today. I always said that the way to beat Apple in the tablet space is to offer the same experience at a lower price. webOS offers a great user interface and if HP is able to make it stable and fast on the TouchPad they have a real chance.
