    Why is the HP TouchPad selling more than twice their firesale prices on ebay?

    I guess the TouchPad had to 'die' in order to be successfull.

    Yeah, I have been watching this too. Look at the completed items and they are almost all selling. The ones that didn't sell were mostly ended early by sellers because the item was no longer available. It's good to see the rapid interest!

    I don't think it's a scam. iPad and iPad 2 were selling on eBay twice even three times their retail price the first month of release.

    Look like demand is driving the price higher since most retail stores are out of stock.

    Now that Best Buy and HP SMB have plenty in stock, I wonder if people will go after that or stick with eBay.

    The good news for @webosinternalz, @HP and webOS dev is that they now have more webOS users than ever before. I just hope the #touchdroid development fail cos it doesn't make sense to put Android on TP hardware. Porting webOS to Android tablet hardware is a better and practical alternative.

    More Touchpads are out there, but don't think a bargain hunter hoarding four touchpads is going to generate the same software activity as two iPads.

    One of the reasons I don't like ebay. Scamartists looking to make a quick buck off the fire sale. If I was able to get my hands on one during the blowout, I would have given it to my parents and/or siblings.

    I think people outside of the USA are buying the eBay Touchpads at the high prices.
