Those tablet price wars edge ever closer, with HP first cutting US $50 off the price of its TouchPad in the US, with US retailer “Staples” stapling a whopping $100 TouchPad price cut – but only from August 5 to August 7. Should we expect similar price cuts in Australia?
An AT&T staff leak on XDA says that the carrier will be cutting the contract price of the HTC One X to $99 on July 29th. That’s half the price of it’s original listing. This might be due to the Galaxy S III‘s extraordinary sales, so HTC may just be trying to get it’s One X back into the spotlight.
Amazon announced today that it was cutting the price on both versions of its largest Kindle device, the Kindle Fire HD 8.9.
