TouchPad goodies continue to flow as there is a further $50 rebate in the form of App Catalog credit. The voucher will be available to all those who bought the TouchPad in the US between July 1st and August 4th. All those tho have procured a TouchPad before August 4th will shortly be issued an e-mail detailing how to best utilize the $50 App Catalog credit. The voucher will have a validity until the end of 2011 and is on top of the $50 rebate available to those who have bought the tablet between July 1st and July 31st.
However, many believe the latest round of perks is being provided by HP to assuage any sort of dent that the TouchPad might have suffered owing to the discount that the tablet had been provided so soon in its life. The discount though has not been entirely in vain as Woot reported having sold 612 of the WebOS running tablets during the period. HP isn’t forthcoming with the total number of TouchPads that have found buyers to date. The tablet is on sale via Staples, Best Buy, and HP’s own web store.
TouchPad price is down by $200 between August 5th through the 7th, with Hp offering a $100 discount while another $100 rebate is offered by Staples. So the 16 GB version of TouchPad can be bought for just $300 while the 32 GB version will cost $400.
