HP Releases a New Batch of TouchPad for Existing Orders

Written on September 08, 2011 by Lulu

0 person

HP releases another batch of their discontinued HP TouchPad to fulfill those existing orders from their customers.

HP’s Small and Medium Business division sent out an e-mail to its customers who placed orders but did not receive shipment of the now-discontinued TouchPad. The company told its customers that it will start fulfilling their orders at the promised discounted price – $99 – in about six to eight weeks. The e-mail was sent directly at SMB customers only, and does not apply to other customers who might have unfulfilled orders from the regular home channel.

The time frame shows that the company would be fulfilling the said orders by the end of October, which is similar to the company’s stated intent of shipping a new batch of units by the end of its current fiscal quarter. HP has not yet unveiled the quantity of unfulfilled orders for the webOS tablet, but it is said that the firm or its suppliers had enough parts and inventory on hand to build at least 100,000 TouchPad.

HP: Releasing Limited New TouchPads in Few Weeks

Written on August 31, 2011 by Lulu

0 person

HP promised to release a limited number of TouchPad units, after disclosing that they will leave the smartphone and tablet market.

HP will be ramping up their manufacturing for a limited production run of their TouchPad tablets. The said company unveiled through their The Next Bench blog that it will be developing an unspecified number of new units. HP gave no indication on delivery, other than it will be at least few weeks and will occur during the current fiscal quarter which ends on October 31.

HP shocked the industry when it suddenly announced that it was leaving the smartphone and tablet market earlier this month. The company – and its partners – then dropped the price of the tablet to as low as $99, creating a buying frenzy. Inventories will be consumed in a matter of hours.

The company said that it would try to limit quantities available to individual purchasers in an effort to avoid hoarding and profiteering. HP also said it would attempt to fulfill orders already successfully placed through its HP Home & Home Office and HP Small & Medium Business online stores.

BestBuy Sells TouchPad Despite of HP’s Decision

Written on August 22, 2011 by Lulu

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.

Russell Brand uses his humor to discuss what HP's TouchPad is all about.

After the news that HP is creating an iPad competitor, the company told that their tablet’s target were the enterprise customers. But it seems that people were not convinced. Hence, HP reached for one more resort — make them laugh.

HP, which managed to create a good ad campaign or two this time, sought for Russell Brand’s help to make a series of short videos for the TouchPad. Each one discusses the various features of the tablet, which HP said does not compete against the iPad. Fortunately, Russell Brand was able express the essence of HP TouchPad without being overly intelligent. But whether these videos can lift up the perception of HP TouchPad with ordinary consumers, only the people can tell.

Check out the HP TouchPad video after the jump.

HP Aims for Number One Plus

Written on May 23, 2011 by Aiken Lewis

Better than the number one; and HP calls it number one plus.

HP is setting the standard for TouchPad so high that people might think now it is unattainable. In the recent press conference held in France, HP’s Eric Cador expressed his strong feelings that their latest tablet will be the best among the rest:

“In the PC world, with fewer ways of differentiating HP’s products from our competitors, we became number one; in the tablet world we’re going to become better than number one. We call it number one plus.”

The TouchPad is set to land in UK with apps created by Guardian, Sky and Last.fm. And there are thousands more apps to appear in the coming months. The spot HP is aiming for seems impossible but we can never conclude until we see the real thing.

Say Hello to HP/Palm TouchPad WebOS Tablet; Impressive Specs Detailed

Written on February 10, 2011 by Kristoff Jones

3 persons

Thinking beyond wasn't as ambitious as we expected from HP/Palm, but the TouchPad webOS tablet still hits all the right spots, including Flash.

There’s nothing like the smell of a newly unveiled webOS tablet, and the smell that HP and Palm’s new TouchPad, which has just been unveiled at the ‘Think Beyond’ event, is certainly as sweet as the summer breeze. Possessing stellar features which empasizes more on the superiority of the interface rather than the hardware, the Touchpad looks like it’s ready to take on the tablet market by storm. We just have a little issue about its uniqueness against the apps-driven iOS and Android OS. Plus the entire hardware looks awfully like the iPad and other tablets available. But what’s good about the TouchPad is that it fully supports Flash (something Apple has been so hard-headed on), meaning it allows you to view videos around the web.

Check out the specs after the break!
