    Just rang HP (Although it is listed you can't current buy the touch-pad it says 'item not found'):

    *Sales rep said that discount is unlikely to be as heavy as the US because they have "massive amounts of stock to get rid of" so I doubt we will be getting a 75 touchpad...

    * She wouldn't confirm it but it appears that monday is whenever whatever reduction they plan to give will appear.

    Hope that is helpful to some of you.

    I hope it will happen in Germany, too. BTW rumor has it they won't sell the Pre 3 in Germany after all. I so hope this is not true!

    I believe that was a direct quote from HP and not a rumour.

    I'll try for part-refund, but I don't hold out much hope.

    If they bring a 75 TP to the UK I'm buying two!

    Well, there's no chance of 75, or at least it would be an unprecedented event in this country!

    So the question is: how much would tempt me? 150? 120? Hard to say really with it being so cheap in America.

    But I would be tempted though - really I would. I think it's a great device from playing with it in the shops, I just couldn't afford it or justify it previously.

    So come on HP UK! Don't let us British webOS fans down again!

    Just phoned Bestbuy

    Them: Good morning, how can I help you?

    Me: I was wondering about the HP Touc...

    Them: No we haven't discounted it.



    Clearly getting a lot of calls.

    Haha, Just tweeted Argos, got this back: 'Hi, the current selling price is valid until 26/08/2011, please check after this date as the price will then change.'

    I'm thinking that - way too steep for an EOL product.

    That's the price I'd expect (200) for 16GB. I'm hoping it'll be the 1=$1 though.

    200 still seems steep for a now redundant device. I'd be happy to pay 120-150 for it. Just needs Amazon to bring the Kindle app out here & the TP could be a Kindle Alternative

    OK - I've been onto all of the major UK retailers, if there is a price cut coming, it's not happening this weekend (at least according to what people are telling me).

    It was $99 CAD, which is around 60.

    I agree 200 is the likely reduced price, but personally (and for most buyers) over 150 is just too much to pay.

    I'm waiting for UK discounts too.
    Please keep us updated!
