Best Buy Co. Inc. this week began offering customers the option to purchase Hewlett Packard Co.’s HP TouchPad 32GB SKU at clearance price with the purchase of a select PC.
Beginning this week, customers who purchase an HP or Compaq desktop, notebook, or All-in-One computer can purchase the HP TouchPad 32GB SKU at $149.99.
Both include a 1.2Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon Dual-Core CPU, 1GB RAM, and the webOS operating system in a 1.6 lb. device.
Despite powerful specs, the TouchPad held tepid demand at launch.
