Been on the fence about picking up an HP TouchPad since its launch last month? This news may finally push you over the edge: HP today announced that it's permanently slashing the price of both models of the TouchPad by $100. That means that the 16GB Wi-Fi-only model will now set you back $399.99, while the 32GB variant will be priced at $499.99. The updated pricing is already live on HP's webstore.
Earlier this month we saw the TouchPad get $100 discounts from both HP and Staples, but this new permanent price reduction is great for anyone that didn't pull the trigger on those previous offers. Now we have to wait and see if this cut will boost TouchPad sales and help the webOS slate compete against the likes of the iPad and Android-powered tablets. Anyone thinking about picking up a TouchPad now that both models are $100 cheaper?
