$99 HP TouchPad Sale: New Announcement - Final Round of Tablets Coming 'Within Weeks'

HP has been largely quiet about its final run of HP TouchPad tablets; however, with the minimal amount of information that has been released by the company, it appears as though consumers will be able to soon enough get their hands on a TouchPad.

On its blog, The Next Bench, HP announced that the final shipment of Touchpads would be going out and that the tablet would be available in retail stores in “a few weeks.”

With the new announcement, it appears as though the HP tablets will be made available to consumers in enough time to snag an affordable and desirable tablet just before the holidays.

However, those that are interested in the tablets must act fast, as it is believed that HP will be manufacturing only 200,000 new TouchPads, a number that will likely be unable to curb demand.

This summer HP made waves when it made the difficult decision to drop out of the competitive tablet business and launched a fire sale of its HP TouchPad tablet.

HP originally cut the price of its tablet $100 in hopes to attract consumers, but still found little demand for the product.

With the decision to drop out of the market entirely, the company slashed the price of their tablet down to $99 and caused a national frenzy with people attempting to get their hands on the undervalued gadget.

Some tech experts argued back in August when the nation was inundated with TouchPad frenzy that even with the discounted price, the tablet was simply not worth the bargain.

However, several TouchPad owners have expressed on various websites that they are pleased with their tablet.

For those concerned about purchasing a device with “no future,” they need not worry as HP has committed to providing webOS updates and apps for the tablet, as the company moves in the direction toward primarily developing software.
