HP is taking a $100 off the original price of HP TouchPad this weekend. From $499.00 the 16 GB model of HP Touchpad will now be $399.00 or SR 1500. The catch is that the discount is only for buyers in the United States and just for the weekend (Aug 5 to 7) .
My last visit in one of the gadget store here in KSA, it looks like they’re still not selling the HP Touchpad. HP TouchPad is available in 3G/Wifi or Wifi connectivity, in 16 GB and 32 GB model, running webOS 2.0 that was acquired when HP bought Palm last April 2011.
