HP sells dead stock -- just $99 for the HP TouchPad 16GB and $149 for its 32GB. Not too shabby ...
Retailers on Saturday popped off the last HP TouchPads -- firesale prices now are $99 for the 16GB and $149 for the 32GB TouchPad. Online and at retail, customers are snapping up bargains on the tablet HP killed on Thursday.
