$99 TouchPad Fire Sale Sets Off Internet Frenzy

Nobody wanted to buy a TouchPad at $499 (for the 16GB version). Very few people wanted to buy one at the reduced price of $399. At $99, however, it’s hard to say no to any decent tablet, even if it’s a discontinued model. Now that some resellers have started to discount the HP TouchPad base model after the company announced that it would exit the tablet market altogether earlier this week, some parts of the Internet have started to feel like Black Friday in August.
