$99 TouchPad goes on Sale this Sunday for the Last Time [Update]

HP actually said end of October that the $99 TouchPad is sold out for good. According to leaked internal HP email published on TechCrunch, there will be an encore, but with caveats. HP will sell $99 16GB WebOS TouchPads and $149 32GB TouchPads on eBay starting 6pm CET on Sunday, December 11. So far so good, but these are all refurbished units. Basically all TouchPads that have been returned by customers will be sold in this special eBay fire sale. The HP employees once again get first dips. Ordinary consumers are supposed to get access to the $99 TouchPad sale after a short delay. 

The refurbished TouchPads come with only a 90-Day warranty and this sale is final, means you cannot return it. You only can pay with PayPal. The $99 TouchPad and $149 TouchPad will be listed on this page on eBay under Laptops.

HP is also offering a $79 accessory pack consisting of a case, charging dock and wireless keyboard.

The demand for the $99 TouchPad will be again crazy despite all the caveats. As reported the TouchPad has now the second largest market share behind the Apple iPad. That will though soon change. The next NPD sales report will have the Kindle Fire on second place. I actually recommend to get a Kindle Fire instead if you do not want to spend the money on an Apple iPad.

Update:
The refurbished TouchPads have been sold out within minutes on Sunday at 7pm EST.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
