Buy This Now On Amazon

Best Buy is now selling the HP TouchPad for $99.99 and it is in stock. TouchPad got hard to find as the fire-sale price triggered a buying frency.

As reported yesterday, HP decided to sell all remaining HP TouchPad webOS tablets for only $99.99. This comes after the announcement that HP is not making any webOS devices anymore. The hunt after the $99.99 TouchPad deal is on since yesterday. Best Buy said initially that they will not offer the TouchPad at the $99.99 price, but they now changed gears and do sell them.

I just checked (7:45am ET) and the 16GB TouchPad is in stock online on BestBuy.com with the $99.99 price-tag. The $149.99 32GB HP TouchPad is also still in stock on BestBuy.com.

Earlier this week we reported that Best Buy is sitting on over 200,000 HP TouchPads. It will be interesting to see how fast and if Best Buy is selling through that huge pile of TouchPads.

For under $100 the HP TouchPad is by far the best tablet deal available right now. If you need a tablet to check email and surf the web the HP TouchPad is more than you need. The only down-side is that the app eco-system is likely to die out. If you are lucky though, the HP promises to keep webOS alive and also the webOS app eco-system you actually won sort of the lottery. Clearly the HP TouchPad is not the hottest hardware, but the $99.99 price is making it a killer tablet deal.
