Tired of all the Yanks getting cheap TouchPads? Well, your time has come…if you are German at least.
Golem.de reports that the all models of the TouchPad will now be 80 Euros cheaper. So now the 16GB version is 400 Euros and the 32 GB model is 500. That means they are still paying a bit more than the Americans, but that is typically blamed on the VAT and currency differences.
But that’s not all!!
If you were an early adopter of the TouchPad in Germany, then you will be getting a 40-euro voucher to purchase apps. These will be sent to all people who bought a TP between 7/1 – 8/11. The voucher is good for 1 year. Be sure to check the email address you setup as your HP webOS account.
As to whether or not this is gonna spread all over Europe is currently unknown, but it seems like it is only a matter of time. Let us know you if you hear about discounts in your country!
Update: Word is, the same discounts are official in Canada, UK, France, and Austrailia!
