As you might know, the HP TouchPad has been on sale for extremely low prices ever since the company announced that it was killing production of the webOS powered tablet. And because of this fire sale, there is insane demand for this device.
I mean, who wouldn’t want a $99 tablet that will likely have little to no developer support when it’s all said and done right?
Sarcasm aside, these things are selling like hotcakes for $99 and because of the low price point, HP has announced that it is temporarily out of stock due to the overwhelming demand for the device.
Those words would have been a lot nicer to hear before HP decided to kill current and future webOS hardware. The company notes that it’s not worth your time to call HP to find out about availability and that you should instead follow their community manager @brynaathp on Twitter or visit this link in order to find out more information about when the tablet will again become available.
Has anyone out there bought one for $99?
Our own Warner Crocker did the exact opposite and returned his. If I had one, I would probably do the same. I can’t imagine owning a tablet that doesn’t have a thriving application market and developer community behind it.
