    Roadmap: HP TouchPad loses money on each sale, but makes up for it

    Roadmap: HP TouchPad loses money on each sale, but makes up for it : Beatweek Magazine

    The money-losing HP TouchPad firesale, which sees remaining units being discarded at $99 apiece despite their manufacturing cost being well above that mark, is being bandied about as a roadmap for tablet success for other potential tablet vendors including Amazon. Hogwash, of course, as each TouchPad likely cost three times as much money to bring to market as the company is currently selling it for. If the TouchPad is a roadmap for anything, itís how to fail in a growing market and fail miserably. But that message has been overwhelmingly lost in the tech headlines of late, and therein lies the way in which HP has figured out, unwittingly or otherwise, how to profit from losing money on its remaining TouchPad inventory: as a smokescreen, itís saved the company significant embarrassment.

    I'm not one to jump to this conclusion normally, but Beatweek is a shamelessly pro A***e rag. I'm not one to spend too much time on site as even 5 minute review of their site makes their bias very obvious.

    I have much worse words for Beatweek magazine. Biased is a mild way of putting it.
