I decided to sell one of our 32GB TPs via craigs list today.
I offered up a used one or they could purchase a brand new sealed unit that we purchased from the QVC deal.
The buyer wanted the sealed unit.
After the transaction i offer the buyer to open up the unit to make sure the TP was within the box and explained he would need to be within a wifi area to set up a webos account.
Hit the power button and it came up with a initializing screen with some testing going on then into a interactive testing mode:
It wanted to test everything from internal to user input.
Testing charger, usb, audio, touchstone and even tap to share, along with many other tests
I have never seen this at all, after all kinds of testing i told the buyer he would need to complete this at home.
I never did get into webos,
Was this one of them factory installed Android units?
The buyer is new to touchpads, i have a feeling that i may get a call back saying something is not right, can't find webos
Sold the unit with a brand new touchstone and brand new HP case along with a screen protector for $285
what do i do if he calls back?
offer up a trade? cashback? Run webos Dr?
I just called the buyer to let him know that he may have one of the very few "what 4 known"
in the wild HP factory android testing software units.
I am not in any position to offer a brand new sealed replacement unit for that one.
I do have a used one to offer, FOLKS, this testing software that came up tested or wanted to test EVERYTHING and used user input as well.
I first was thinking maybe this had the webos 3.0.2 whereas our other TPs came with 3.0.? and this was new to 3.0.2, my buddy said no, likely one of the android units.
