If you missed the chance to get the HP TouchPad on a bargain, an additional 6,000 of the tablets will be coming to the UK. However, you won’t be able to get your hands on these either. These TouchPads will be exclusive to the 16,500 HP staff in the UK. They will be available to HP’s staff on a first-come first-served basis. If there are a few tablets left, they will be available to the company’s partners.
Who would have thought that the HP TouchPad would turn out to be a hit? When the company announced that it would no longer be supporting the webOS, they cut down the price of the tablet by 70%. This price cut quickly made the tablet one of the hottest selling products in both the UK and the US.
We’re not sure what the future holds for the webOS. Since HTC is on the lookout for an operating system of its own, will the webOS be a likely candidate? Hopefully, someone else will give the webOS another chance.
As for your chances of getting your hands on a TouchPad, you might have passed up the opportunity. Oh well, you might as well check on eBay for an HP TouchPad.
