New batch of HP Touchpads to be shipped out after August 20, this new HP Touchpad shipment will sellout even quicker, top distributors to check for in stock for $99 16GB and $149 32GB touch pad
Everyone’s waiting to hear news of the last remaining batches of HP Touchpads slated for delivery to distribution centers. Stores seem to be very tempted to use fake in stock numbers to perhaps gain new customer data, email addresses, house addresses and other valuable info which might help them turn a bargain hunter into a real profitable customer for them.
The web is full of complaints with stores canceling orders in mass, claiming some inventory accounting error, but which errors were deliberate and which were honest? Most high volume distributors have pretty good inventory accounting methods and the opportunity to grab MILLIONS of potential customer data might be very enticing.
Of course there are plain phishing websites popping up just to steal credit card numbers from the naive desperately trying to score a bargain. Interestingly many customers, and in reality ‘potential’ or would-be customers since we have no real numbers as to how many HP Touchpads were really sold at the $99 and $149 dollar discounted price, many of these customers never had much interest in a tablet before, some are not even too techy, they are simply addicted bargain hunters. For some its an unending obsession at finding the craziest ‘deal’ whether for bragging rights or to fulfill the scrooge within.
Either way, perhaps we shouldn’t let them down? How about posting on here the location of any store or website that has some more HP touchpads in stock? Yep, can do! : )
HP does want to prolong the frenzy instead of dropping them all in one batch, they will have another batch or two coming.
Keep in mind many stores will prefer to force people to come down to their store in person instead of giving the deals their online websites. This means you may have to hit all your local stores in person if you’re really desperate. They like to force you to come since if they do run out of stock, they have a chance to sell you something else since who doesn’t like a good ice cream when they’re depressed and exhausted? After the let down on the HP Touchpads, they can show you some other ‘deals’ on the products they do have in stock and many times you buy because you dread going back home empty handed! You want some new toy to tinker with
