HP is offering a $50 savings off the 32GB TouchPad to early adopters of webOS
Fortunately though, HP has something in store for those early adopters of webOS seeing that they are offering a $50 savings off the purchase of a new 32GB model of the HP TouchPad. Actually, that $50 savings is in the form of a mail-in-rebate, which requires you to send in a few different documents to receive it.
Still, that’s definitely a nice gesture from HP considering that those early adopters took a gamble with the platform. Well, if you didn’t pick up a legacy device, you might want to befriend someone who did to receive that awesome $50 savings off the upcoming TouchPad.

This looks like a good tablet, but no camera on the back side and no 3G connectivity this late in the game really defeats the purpose of buying one...

Got an e-mail today just like the image posted. My first thought was Really!? After the whole "yeah, we're gonna update devices to WebOS 2.0" then "we're not" all I get is a 50 dollar mail-in rebate for a stupid tablet? There might be some loyal WebOS fans but I'm through with it. Waiting for the iphone 5 or maybe the Samsung Galaxy S II :).

Well, considering the price of the tablet the $50 is a drop in a huge bucket. If it was $150 or more I would probably consider getting the tablet. Like cheetah2k said, its missing some newer technology. Its an OS that has about died since HP cant get product to market. I really cant see how they justify the heavy price tag on the device in the first place. If they could get the Pre3 to market I might be interested in going that direction but my Pre is about dead and I need something new. Like PGS said, I'm looking at the Samsung Galaxy S II series for my next phone....unless HP can get products out....

Got the TouchPad. Sent in my rebate form. One form, very simple. The biggest hassle was, believe it or not, finding the stupid TouchPad model number.
Only the 32GB model is rebate-elligible. Not the 16.
