HP TouchPad: $99 in USA or, a rubbish £349 in UK
Those lovely UK retailers have decided to cut the price of the HP TouchPad in a bid to shift some stock.
Those nice folks at Amazon have cut their £400 pricetag to £312 while Argos are offering it for £349.99. A veritable fire clearance after HP said they won't be making anymore of these devices.
However, it isn't that great. That's because over in the US, Best Buy are flogging them for a measly $99, as well as offering refunds to customers who bought the TouchPad at full price.
They say: "Due to HP's decision to discontinue its TouchPad product, Best Buy will now provide clearance pricing for all TouchPad 16GB and 32GB models regardless of previously advertised prices or promotions."
"Customers who purchased the 16GB or 32GB TouchPad after 19 June may come into the store to get either a full refund or a refund of the difference between the price they paid and the clearance price."
So, wait. In America, you can pick a tablet up for £60 and we're forking out over £300? Brilliant. That's just fantastic that is.
Nice to see UK retailers looking after their customers so much.
