Last Chance For HP Touchpad Tonight! | Digital Conqueror

Last Chance For HP Touchpad Tonight!

Your really going to have to have fast fingers for this one.  After HP discontinued the HP Touchpad 2 1/2 months after it was released, it did not seem like the best product.  But then the fire sale happened where there was a 16 GB model for $99 and a 32 GB model for $150.

Well tonight they are going to release a final batch.  The sale is happening via Ebay at 6 pm (Central Time), and was supposed to be only meant for employes.  But after TechCrunch released the memo today people are going crazy wanting to get one tonight.  I’m sure that they most likely do not have very many left so again you got to be fast.

There going to be released on the HP Ebay Store, under the laptop section.  These tablets are refurbished but most have not even been open.  So feel free to camp on Ebay waiting to see if you can get your HP Touchpad.  The best part about it is that HP is going to move on with webOS through open-source.  Meaning that there will be future updates for your Touchpad.  This is going to probably be the last webOS tablet we see until 2013.

Update: If your reading this right now all HP Touchpads are gone sorry.

Along with your Touchpad, you get a 90 day warranty.  Plus there is an option to buy a accessory pack for $79.  The sale is going to only be for the employes first so it won’t be exactly 6 pm.  It could be even a little bit later.  Here is what HP said about the sale.

In an effort to give HP employees first chance at a very limited supply of refurbished TouchPads, there will be a short delay between when the product is posted live for sale on eBay and when the general public is notified of the sale.

So that’s basically our sale of the night.  So if your reading this right now it’s probably already going on so go to this link to see if you can buy one. Click Here

You are going to have to have a Ebay account and a PayPal account to get one.  This is the whole memo of what HP said.

To: U.S. HP Employees
