$99 HP TouchPad Sale: New Release of Touchpad Tablets in Weeks

Hewlett Packard’s discontinued TouchPad is set for another huge discount sale in late October, when it has been reported the company will run off 200,000 more TouchPads to “satisfy unfulfilled demand.”

The massive TouchPad sale originally saw the tablet sell for $99 for the 16 GB device and $149 for the 32 GB device. That sale took place in late August and saw the discounted tablets sell out everywhere.

“At present, the rate of TouchPad supply will not last for long,” read an email sent to Hewlett Packard employees.

Previously competition with Apple’s coveted iPad 2 ensured a terrible fate for the TouchPad, which was criticized for a small app portfolio of only 300 apps, which ultimately was unable to compete with the massive app selection of Apple and Android devices.

The product also boasted the unattractive mobile operating system, the WebOS.

According to the Hewlett Packard website, sellers will have liberty to determine their price; some may opt not to sell the product at its $99 mark.

Where can one find the second surge of this cheap revamp?

Best Buy and the Hewlett Packard website sponsored the past sale in late August, and are likely to do so again.

Since it was launched to the market no more than two months ago, the TouchPad tablet, originally at $499, failed to attract consumer attention despite the heavily publicized and marketed efforts by Hewlett Packard.
