    I happened to see that there are 2 different sale items for HP Slate tablets that are actually HP Touchpads.
    They are both going for $99.99. Not my auctions. The person is Buybest12

    So I logged into eBay and asked the following on each posting...

    Why are you calling this a Slate 7? Isn't it really a TouchPad? Does it have Cyanogen Mod? Is that why you say the OS is Ice Cream Sandwich? What happened to the webOS? Does it still boot into webOS? Touchpad never came with 8GB storage, so is this 16GB? 32GB? Is it a "4G" model?Since you don't know what you have would you rethink your price? Will you add a "Make Offer" button to this listing?

    That just proves how bad HP marketed these things, both TouchPad and Slate. There's near no awareness about the products themselves beyond "firesale".

    ...but in their defense eBay sellers have known to put up some really stupid descriptions.
    Palm IIIc -> Sony CLIÉ T650C -> Sony TJ-37 -> Palm TX -> Palm Centro -> Palm Pre Bell -> Palm Pre Plus Bell/Verizon Hybrid -> HP Veer -> HP Pre 3 NA -> BlackBerry Classic -> BlackBerry Priv

    It's a Late Goodbye, such a Late Goodbye.

    Note that your questions don't appear in the "questions about this item" box on ebay. Does a seller have the ability to block what questions other bidders are able to see?

    A seller can manually add questions to the listing... They do not appear automatically.

    I don't expect them to appear in the listings. I probably won't even get an answer.

    There is no reason others can't ask the same or similar though.

    Please let us know if you get a reply and what they say. For $99 I'm almost tempted to swing for one of them even though my firesale TP is still rocking along in the case from day 1 as perfect as ever.

    White label AP 2885 on Touchpad. Seems like touchpad andriod prototype with andriod 2.2.1 or 2.3.3 or 2.3.4...

    Also I have touchpad andriod 2.2.1 64G Wifi version...

    Well I did get answers of sorts...


    HP Slate 7 8GB Android Tablet 10" Black AP2885 | eBay
    "Thank you for visting this listing was posted in error and in fact it is an HP Touch Pad Wi-Fi 16GB 9.7 in Tablet Computer with HP WebOS..
    My apologies,

    - buybest12"



    HP Slate 7 8GB Android Tablet 10" Black AP2884 | eBay
    "Hello again, regretfully to say we do not end auctions early Thanks in advance..

    - buybest12"



    My questions - and their answer - got posted to the listing marked AP 2885.

    To confuse matters more... If you look at the pics. Listing AP 2885 picture shows a unit with an AP 2884 label attached and vice versa.

    one of them is displaying the first page of webOS sign in, for choice of language.

    the description provided is a "stock" ebay-provided write-up for the Slate, since that's what category item they selected to list it as. So i doubt either TP has anything to do with what's described there.

    but ugh, look at that seller's feedback. The negative comments are not from people with scores below 20. there are several in the 300s, giving me the impression that experienced ebay users, not just 'noobs', are getting screwed over by this seller.

    i'd never buy from a seller with that kind of feedback record. the feedback comments give me the impression they are selling refurb stocks that may not have been correctly refurb'd, or just used junk they've acquired and flipping as-is.

    Both auctions appear to have ended with no bids. Looks like no one was as dumb as the sellers.
