The HP TouchPad is now available across Canada

Today, the HP's Touchpad is available at retailers across Canada, including the exclusive Vancouver HP Store.

The WebOS-based tablet has a 10-inch display, 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, and 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera.

The wifi-only device saw immediate discounts after its launch in the U.S. at major retailers like Amazon. The same has now happened in Canada, where the likes of Future Shop, Staples, and London Drugs have slashed the sticker price by up to $70 before any sales have even been made. With these discounts, the price of the tablet is around $450 for the 16GB version and $550 for the 32GB version.

I have a Touchpad myself, and while it's no home run for HP, it's surprisingly good.
