BestBuy Sells TouchPad Despite of HP’s Decision
BestBuy put their remaining HP TouchPad on sale despite of the company's decision to end all all hardware development and production of the said device.
BestBuy has reconsidered its position in selling the TouchPad again in US despite HP’s decision to shutter its webOS division, ending all hardware development and production. Instead of sending back unsold ToucPads to HP, BestBuy decided to put all the remaining units in their hands on sale.
While not all stores have stocks of HP’s TouchPad, those that do only have them on hand in limited numbers. It is also expected that it will quickly sell out of any remaining stocks on hand. BestBuy stores which have units in stock will be selling the 16GB Wi-Fi only model for $100, while the 32GB Wi-Fi model will be sold for $150. The stocks of the said device are limited to one unit per customer, while all the sales will be final with no exchange or refunds policy offered for any reason.
The expected rush for the remaining units represents an interesting scenario for HP. Questions are likely to be asked as to whether it exited the market too soon – given the renewed interest in the product – despite of support for it being severed beyond its 12 month warranty.View Article Source »
