The HP TouchPad is having a firesale because the company is discontinuing making them. WebOS might live on because HP wants to license it to other companies. You can always rely ont the MOD community to come out with updates and support the device. Since it is only $99 for the 16 GB model and 149 for the 32 GB model, everyone is wanting to buy one. The trouble is, everywhere is sold out. HP has stated that they have sold over 350,000 tablets in the last 24 hours.
