    For all the non believers, market research firm, IDC estimates a 5% share for HP Touchpad and about 900,000 devices shipped.

    " HP entered and left the market in 3Q11 with its TouchPad product. The company shipped 903,354 units to grab a 5% share of the worldwide market, number three behind Samsung's 5.6% market share. "

    That'd make sense. The firesale didn't happen until Q3, so I'd expect a ton of them sold during that time.

    Not bad for a single device. How many different models did Sammy send?

    4-5 models. I am more impressed with Asus. 4% market share without any discounting like HP with only 1 model. Now with the prime available, they're going to shoot up their market share! Big up for them, the deserve it.

    Shipped, not sold. Big difference.

    From what I can tell most retailers have sold through all stock with ease.. there is no abundance anywhere even in package deals unless you know something nobody else does

    Q3 is only until September. HP fulfilled a major of the backorder from SMB (about 200,000) on October so that would make sold unit 1 million.

    When most retailers are stocked out. sell through is equal to or almost equal to sell in.

    Cant believe how some people continuously keep doubting the number of touchpad solds.

    Oh yea, they wrote off the division from their balance sheet. Had multiple fire sales and you expect HP to still be sitting on a huge inventory pile just to give it to you for free?

    4-5? Samsung only had 2 during that quarter. The discontinued Galaxy Tab, which nobody was buying because of age/discontinued/OS, and the 10.1. The 8.9 and Galaxy Tab Pro weren't released until November. Maybe they make 2-3 tablets that I am unaware of.

    I believe that Whitman's 750k number was the initial production prior to the post-firesale run.

    I can't believe anyone thinks it matters how many were sold. 750,000 or a million, it's still a dead product line with a base that will only shrink as time passes.

    Yeah, the main thing is that roughly 1 in 20 people who acquired a tablet in 2011 was exposed to WebOS. Assuming the experience was generally positive then there is a potential follow-on market.

    The estimates are for all over the world, not just usa. Samsung Galaxy 10.1, 8.9 and plus models were available in S Korea and Europe way before end of Q3.
