After the recent announcement that HP will be discontinuing production of its webOS devices, it seems the company is trying to rid itself of surplus stock. News broke today that the computer manufacturer has asked its retail partners to cut the price of the TouchPad to $99 for the 16GB, and $149 for the 32GB edition. It’s rumored the official date of the cut was to be August 20th, but Canadian retailers Best Buy and Future Shop have already dropped the price of the device. However, the price cut will officially take effect in the US tomorrow morning.
