BestBuy Sells TouchPad Despite of HP’s Decision

BestBuy put their remaining HP TouchPad on sale despite of the company's decision to end all all hardware development and production of the said device.

BestBuy has reconsidered its position in selling the TouchPad again in US despite HP’s decision to shutter its webOS division, ending all hardware development and production. Instead of sending back unsold ToucPads to HP, BestBuy decided to put all the remaining units in their hands on sale.

While not all stores have stocks of HP’s TouchPad, those that do only have them on hand in limited numbers. It is also expected that it will quickly sell out of any remaining stocks on hand. BestBuy stores which have units in stock will be selling the 16GB Wi-Fi only model for $100, while the 32GB Wi-Fi model will be sold for $150. The stocks of the said device are limited to one unit per customer, while all the sales will be final with no exchange or refunds policy offered for any reason.

The expected rush for the remaining units represents an interesting scenario for HP. Questions are likely to be asked as to whether it exited the market too soon – given the renewed interest in the product – despite of support for it being severed beyond its 12 month warranty.

On June 18, customers who'll likely to purchase T-mobile's unlimited plan or mobile broadband plan will be entitled to get FREE 12 months of data. A sweet treat for dads out there!

All fathers out there would be really excited, as T-Mobile recently announced that they are going to have a special promo this coming June 18. This 12 months of free data promotion is only available for new and current customers that have a contract tenure of 18 months.

The huge sale will take place on June 18 only. During this single day, consumers who will buy a text and data plan will be accredited to get 12 months data for free. But subscribers must take note that free data plans only apply to $10 200MB plans. Otherwise, if you insist to have a 2GB, 5GB or 10GB plan, you will then receive a $10 credit on your bill for one whole year — so that would be $120 all in all.

Nintendo, Finally Dropping Wii to $150?

Is Nintendo really bringing Wii's price down to $150? Do we really even care?

Rumor is brewing around the gaming industry that Nintendo is finally going to drop the Wii down to $150 from its much overdue $200 price tag. According to reports from a “trusted source” via Engadget, the price slash is coming May 15th, less than a month before E3 2011.

Even though Wii is sitting on the top of the gaming console food chain year-after-year, the price cut is a much welcome move to consumers. However, that wouldn’t probably change the fact that Nintendo Wii still needs good titles to survive.

The Nintendo Wii has been around for a long while now, and with the rise of the Xbox 360 Kinect and the PlayStation Move, it seems like the revolutionary movement-based console is starting to lose its steam to the competition. Will the Nintendo Wii price slash be enough to nail the console’s dominance in the sales charts?
