Recently HP announced that they would drop the price of the HP TouchPad, their first webOS tablet by $50, then last weekend they announced that they would be offering the 16GB model for $399 for the weekend only, a drop of $100 off the original price.
HP must have had some good sales over the weekend and the reduced price as they have now announced that the HP TouchPad price drop is permanent and the 16GB model will now retail for $399.
The 32GB model has also seen a price reduction to $499, and HP are obviously looking to compete with many of the other tablets on the market which are priced at HP’s previous price point.
Hopefully this price drop will be enough to gets people interested in HP’s first webOS tablet and boost sales.
