$99 HP TouchPad goes on Sale for HP Employees Today, Expect eBay to get flooded with TouchPads

Sep 28 2011, 7:20am CDT | by , in News | Tablets

$99 HP TouchPad goes on Sale for HP Employees Today, Expect eBay
 
 

This is how HP employees can make a quick $100 today. Buy $99 HP TouchPad in Employee purchase program and sell it on eBay for more than $200.

From a leaked HP internal email we know that HP employees can purchase today the $99.99 16GB HP TouchPad and the $149.99 32GB HP TouchPad from the new production run. HP is a huge company with over 300,000 employees. I am not sure if all 300,000 are eligible for the offer. Since HP is still silent on when the new $99 TouchPads will be offered on the HP Store, I assume they actually do not know if there will be any left after the HP employees get the first dip.

The 16GB TouchPad still fetches over $200 and the 32GB model sells for more than $250 on eBay. Even if HP employees do not want to actually keep the TouchPad, a quick $100 is neat. I would actually buy one and hang it on my cubicle wall as a reminder for the bad situation HP is in these days. I really wonder if Meg Whitman can save HP.

HP has setup a hash-tag on Twitter dubbed #FoundTP where consumers exchange tips on where to find a TouchPad. After OnSale fulfilled past orders last week the sources ran dry again. The hopes are that HP will have TouchPads left after the employee purchasing offer is over. New HP TouchPads could be arriving on the HP Store as soon as tomorrow.

I actually have the suspicion that some retailers are still holding back TouchPads for Black Friday 2011. With Android ports advancing and consumer interest still high this could actually be a good strategy.

Update:
HP Employee demand for the $99 TouchPad takes down servers of HP Store.
