We had heard that HP was going to make one last run of TouchPads and that appears to be in the tune of 100,000 to 200,000 units. Digitimes reports that HP will look to smooth over relations with part suppliers by ordering up one final round. If you missed one in the first firesale, the latest production should mean more TouchPads sometime in October.
At $99 and $149 price points, these will sell out faster than the original batch. The 16GB TouchPad costs HP $297 to build. Anytime you sell a product at one third the cost, chances are that it will sell quite well.
If you are looking to score one of these, do yourself a favor and follow @everythingpre for notifications on stock. We’ll pass along the information on availability as soon as possible.
