    So the TouchPad is at $99 for a 16gb version, yet the touchstone and bluetooth keyboard continue to sell for more than half of that. Just a thought as I've wanted to purchase a touchstone but couldn't warrant spending the ~$70.

    Future Shop appears to be selling them at 50% off. YMMV.

    Yup, I'm seeing $70 for the touchstone here in the United States.

    Sam's club has the Touchstone for 54.86

    HP Touchstone Charging Dock for Touchpad - Sam's Club

    I'd be surprised if the pricing doesn't go down in the next week or so. Keep in mind though that now that there are about a million touch pads in the wild there is a slight market for the accessories. Retailers might want to try and capitalize on the new owners before reducing the prices.

    They will come down eventually, but for right now there are a ton of new HP Touchpad users with a lot more money in their pockets, from a business perspective its a poor decision to mark those down now as well.

    I agree, I'm just hopeful that someone will take initiative and lower their price soon.

    They're not going to clearance mark them for a while longer. The margin on accessories is going to let them at least make up a little more of the loss.

    Patience. Look at prices of the Palm touchstones for an idea of what will happen to TP accessories.

    the pre didn't have a firesale and have millions of views in 2 seperate threads, over 1 night on sd.

    i think HP prolly has significantly less accessories in stock and will probably sell out with people buying them at full price. maybe some non reseller will sell em cheap, but i dont see HP doing it

    wait half a year, theyll be dirt cheap i agree....but who cares about half a year from today.

    I assume they're shutting down production of the accessories as well, so I may be running out of time to get one?!

    I was told some Future Shops already doing in-store half off for all TP accessories.

    Going to score myself a Touchstone dock if they still exist...
    Palm IIIc -> Sony CLIÉ T650C -> Sony TJ-37 -> Palm TX -> Palm Centro -> Palm Pre Bell -> Palm Pre Plus Bell/Verizon Hybrid -> HP Veer -> HP Pre 3 NA -> BlackBerry Classic -> BlackBerry Priv

    It's a Late Goodbye, such a Late Goodbye.

    Thanks for the tip Toni. Personally I think you guys already got a smoking deal on the TouchPad so I don't feel much sympathy regarding the accessory pricing. I bought everything on launch day $549 for the 32 plus ts and keyboard and case. They are worth the money even though the TouchPad is down in $
    Due to the cancellation of the penny, I no longer give 2¢ about anything. I may however, give a nickel

    I originally bought a touchpad at $349 and then was able to get refunded down to $99. Lucky me.

    Canada isnt a problem. Though went to 3 yesterday (first was to get my touchpad reduced from 550 to 150 which they actually did despite buying it a month ago (31 days)) and second was to see if any had deals on the touchstone/keyboard or would give me a deal on them.

    Just a heads up for all you people complaining that you paid $500+ for the touchpad etc HP has already announced multiple times that they will refund you the difference clear back to launch day purchases. They will literally write you a check for the difference in cost that you paid vs firesale pricing so there's no reason to whine about what you paid.
