Greedy merchants hoarding HP touchpad stock and secretly trying to sell on ebay and other auction sites eager to make big profits as HP lowered price to $99
Keen an eye out on ebay as greedy merchants and BestBuy and other employees try to unload their hoarded stash of $99 HP Touchpads at a nice profit.
Many merchants have decided not to sell their stock at the $99 price, Newegg has said they won’t be selling it at the discounted price, many wonder if they will send it off to HP or what they’ll do with their stock of touchpads, its anybody’s guess what all the merchants out there will do. Some might decline new shipments due them for various reasons.
The smart buyer will refrain from paying more than $99 and not be tempted by the scalping on ebay and other sites. Be especially cautious for fake phishing scam sites setup to lure in the desperate pad chasers.
HP will likely try and sell this off as meaning there’s still interest in WebOS and try to dangle some of their PALM patents in front of GOOGLE for a nice sell and profit, they figure they’ll make up the loss on the $99 devices from selling off whatever patent portfolio they got from acquiring Palm.
Do yourselves a favor and find another $99 toy and start getting some sleep instead of hitting F5 nonstop on every touchpad distributor’s site or wasting hundreds on gas money driving to all the BestBuys, Sams Clubs, and Walmarts in your state! It’s an addiction, and another cool nice $99 toy will cure you, try it!
