Select Best Buy stores in the U.S. will sell the TouchPad for $99 on Sunday.

A store manager in suburban Los Angeles said the TouchPad will go on sale when Best Buy opens its doors Sunday at 10 a.m. The sale applies to all Best Buy stores that have stock, but not all stores do, he said.

Stores typically have stock in the tens of units, not hundreds, according to the store manager. "If people start lining up, the stock will go fast," he said.

Both models will be sold: the 16GB and 32GB, for $100 and $150, respectively, he said.

This comes in the wake of fire sales by Hewlett-Packard on its TouchPad site and at Best Buy in Canada, among other U.S. resellers.

HP announced Thursday that it is shuttering the WebOS device business.

Evidently BEST BUY CANADA as well as the HP site has been selling them at this price already BEFORE announcing the price in the US.. :angry:

Gggrrrrrrr...

Probably because the Canadian dollar is worth more.. :P

Yikes. I wasn't planning on going anytime soon but if I did go it wouldn't be for a few days, and I bet they'd be sold out if they had any to begin wtih... :( I'd like to get one just because that's a smoking good deal and I'd totally use it but sounds like I'd be out of luck anyway....

Can't find a location that has any left in stock. Amazon.com is also out; Best Buy is out online - haven't tried a store; HP is signing people up for a waiting list.. DRATS!!!

Found out this morning HP has a 64gig version but have seen none mentioned for sale at any site. The original 8gig models aren't mention either.

Seems there may be several Operating Systems that can be modified to replace WebOS if HP dumps it.

This gets more interesting by the minute. Best Buy Canada and US sold almost a quarter of a million units since the 20th.

Well I did check Amazon yeseterday and there was no discount really... and none being sold by Amazon itself, at least not that I could see. Sucks that they are out of them now though.

Oh well, no biggie for me...
