Final HP TouchPad firesale units sell at hot potato prices as era ends : Beatweek Magazine
Those who had no interest in the HP TouchPad while it was still alive but now feel compelled to take a shot at acquiring one post mortem will get one last shot thanks to online auctioneer uBid. Even as Hewlett Packard promised to deliver a few more units of the discontinued product to market only to mysteriously conjure up a six to eight week ship time which means the units will likely never be delivered, uBid has its hands on eighty TouchPad units right now. The catch: while HP was blowing out stray units at $99 apiece, uBid is asking $235 as a starting bid (update: $245), with the highest bid at four hundred dollars. Thatís a problem, as most of the current interest in the TouchPad is based solely on the potential to acquire one for ridiculously less than what it cost HP to build it.
