The Hunt for Red HP TouchPad.

August 20, 2011

Sadly I was spending most of Saturday hunting for the freshly discontinued product known as HP TouchPad. Nothing at Best Buy as the salesperson said that they are sending all the unsold inventory back to HP. Office Depot only had a few units in the morning and all sold out as the remaining stock will be delivered to the store on Monday morning.

As predicted, HP’s own online store is experiencing a meltdown. I tried placing an order only to see script errors as far as the shipping address confirmation.

I bet a lot of people wanting to get a $99 tablet computing device. That seems to be the pricing that makes people want one. Unfortunately manufacturers would have to eat up the cost.


editor’s note:
There is no such thing as “Red HP TouchPad”, it is a play on “The Hunt of Red October”.
