" HP couldn't get by making and selling those devices for $100 a pop."

They can if they adopt a subsidy model similar to the Kindle, and the Playstation3 and X Box 360 where the hardware is sold at a loss and they make up the difference by selling applications.

Set up a system similar to Apple's where HP gets a cut of all 'in app purchases' and the TouchPad could be very profitable at that price point.
