Late last week HP announced that they’re discontinuing their tablet WebOS Touchpads as they are focusing on other aspects of their brand. Because of this, HP felt it was necessary to drop the price of their Touchpads from $499 to $99 on the 16GB version and $599 to $150 on the 32GB version. This being the cheapest price for a tablet computer ever, the internet has been a buzz on the Touchpad. HP’s inventory on their website sold out within hours and when other stores including Amazon, MacMall and sellers on ebay priced the Touchpad at the new lower price, they also instantly sold out.

Here are some of the technical details on the $99 HP Touchpad:

  • 16GB internal storage
  • 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon dual-core APQ8060 processor
  • 9.7″ diagonal LED backlit touch display with high-gloss finish, scratch-resistant coating
  • Front-facing 1.3MP camera and digital microphone for video chat
  • Wi-Fi and Bluetooth wireless
  • Beats audio
