HP TouchPad prices slashed on Amazon, Best Buy
HP's TouchPad has been out for less than two weeks, but first Amazon and then Best Buy have already slashed the price of the tablet giving you an additional incentive for the purchase of the webOS 3.0 slate. 

The price on Amazon has been cut by $10 to $489.99 for the 16GB TouchPad and by 5% to $572.65 for the 32GB model. Best Buy offers the same discount for the 16GB tablet, while for the 32GB model you end up with $20 off, translating into a price of $579.99. Those who have exercised the virtue of patience can now save a couple of bucks, but even more importantly at such a price the TouchPad becomes more competitive when compared to the iPad 2. 

But will this be enough for users to overlook some of its flaws? HP has promised an update addressing most software issues, but while that's still a thing of the future, why don't you check out our review of the HP TouchPad, which can answer your questions about the webOS 3.0 tablet now.

If they drop it to $399 for the 16GB and $499 for the 32GB then it might sell, but the HP touchpad does not compare to the iPad 2 and Galaxy 10.1. A $10 to $50 change won't help them sell any. Heck stores haven't even been selling iPad 2's as much since the Samsung came out.
