Best Buy store in California is selling the 32GB HP TouchPad at its full $600 retail price
Well, if you happen to live close to the Santee, California Best Buy store, you might be intrigued to know that they have the 32GB HP TouchPad for sale – and from the looks of it all, it’s in stock right now too. Indeed, it’s questionable as to how they’ve managed to obtain the long discontinued tablet, but the interesting part of it all, is the price that Best Buy is asking for the tablet.
$599.99 retail price, but as we all know, that shouldn’t be the case anymore. Not only are they going to keep people at bay from picking it up, but someone has messed up somewhere because it’s tagged as being a “new tablet.” Sure, there’s a security lock all over the tablet, but seriously, it’s not going to be needed since its cost will keep customers far away from it.
Obviously, there can be some kind of mix up at the store level, well, either that or some employee is simply misinformed. In any event, we’re certain that this price gaffe will be fixed soon, and whoever is fortunate enough to be there for the price drop, they’ll be surely lucky.

funny. that tablet is so awesome though really. my wife has dual boot cyanogen mod on it and we use it all the time. very high quality tablet. and really, not that dated in my opinion it still outshines a lot of the current tabs out there.

it is a decent tab for its age.
$600 for a 10month old discontinued product? no thanks. i still wish i had picked one up when they were on fire-sale.

A Best Buy in New Jersey is selling 3 of them for the same price of $600. I was laughing when the price was confirmed.

Perhaps HP is trying to make a stealthy comeback.

I think title should be "Best Buy store in California is TRYING TO SELL the 32GB HP TouchPad at its full $600 retail price"...and next year...or may be years later..."Best Buy store in California is STILL TRYING TO SELL the 32GB HP TouchPad at its full $600 retail price"

I like how it's behind a "new tablet" sign while it's clearly not a new tablet =P
