$99 HP TouchPad Sale: Device Will Sell for $149 and You Must Buy Another Device (VIDEO)

The details are out on the first of the cheap "$99 HP TouchPads," and the news is that they won't be $99, but rather $149, and users must also purchase another device.

This shipment of new TouchPads comes as part of a promise made by the company months ago to meet the unfulfilled demand for the scarce device.

Customers can get the HP Touchpad from Best Buy for the special price of $149 if they purchase another HP computer as part of the deal.

The HP TouchPad and WebOS, the device's operating system were discontinued back in the summer when retailers were complaining that they were not able to move the tablet and had them sitting around in overstock.

Prices were slashed on the TouchPad and the device immediately started flying off shelves and became one of the most sought after and hard to find tablets on the market.

Meg Whitman, the new CEO of Hewlett Packard confirmed that the company will continue to specialize in manufacturing and selling hardware.

And although the HP TouchPad was discontinued, HP will still make tablets, but now they will include Windows 8 and not WebOS.

It has not been confirmed what the company will call these tablets.
