Touchpad frenzy continues with prices as low as $49 online



The TouchPad frenzy continued overnight and early this morning BestBuy released their stock online for $99 (16GB) and $149 (32GB) with a limit of one per person per configuration. Shipping was available but store pick-up was not an option. Since BestBuy was reported to be sitting on more than 250,000 of the TouchPads there is a good chance they have stock in stores too, so if you want to get one you might want to go to your local store right when they open.

Staples now has the 16GB model listed online at $49 after an additional $50 instant discount. They show it as "currently out of stock" but they may get stock at any time so keep hitting that refresh button and you may get lucky. The 32GB model is listed at $149.
