BestBuy.com is offering the HP TouchPad for $100 until supplies run out

Less than 15 minutes ago, I went to BestBuy.com and successfully ordered one and will see it arriving sometime this week.

There's been a tremendous amount of press around the HP TouchPad since HP killed it off. At first, Best Buy was sending all of its inventory back to HP, then early this morning it reversed its decision and is now offering the HP TouchPad up for sale again, starting at $100.

I spent some time late evening Saturday trying to get my hands on one, and it was either sold out, or not coming up in search results. However, less than 15 minutes ago, I went to BestBuy.com and successfully ordered one and will see it arriving sometime this week.

I'm still not sure what made me pull the trigger. I had some time with the device shortly after launch and it didn't come close to the iPad. That said, Matt Miller found a lot to like, even though there was room for improvement.

We'll see if the homebrew community brings about some interesting products, and maybe even a port to Android. In the meantime, though, if you'd like a pretty solid, inexpensive tablet, and don't mind that the support will be non-existent from HP, go pick one up at BestBuy.com while supplies last.
