[disclaimer, I’m an HP employee]
In a shocking move over the last few days, HP announced that they were pulling out of the smartphone and tablet market. More surprising, they decided to clear inventory by dropping the price of their tablet, the HP Touchpad, from the original $499 to just $99. Unbelievable! For that price, this tablet is an incredible deal. Sure, there aren’t that many apps, and with HP having pulled out of the market, future support is uncertain, but if you just want a tablet to browse the web, do email/calendar and music/video stuff, this is the best time to buy. I even got one!There’s already talk of porting Android to it.
