HOT DEAL: HP Touchpad


Recommended Posts

HP is exiting the hardware business, and its iPad competitor is a massive flop. Just over a month and a half after the 'Touchpad's' release, HP is ordering that retailers liquidate it.



Some retailers online have yet to drop their prices. If you keep an eagle-eye out, and do your research, you should be able snag one.

The device itself isn't that terrific and WebOS is no Android. But for $99, you're getting a pretty good deal. Naturally, there's potential warranty and support issues.

Yeah, they're going fast. However, you might get lucky if you keep an eye out on places like:

These places haven't lowered their prices yet. When they will, is the question.

This is strange. I was at Best Buy on Thursday and I was talking to a guy (in a blue shirt) about this very HP TouchPad and why it was not selling. Three hours later, I see the news that HP is ditching the Touchpad and cutting prices. Go Figure. I thought that BB would need to heavily discount in order to get sales going anywhere.

I hope some talented folks at XDA can get an Android dual boot going on this, that would make it even more of a deal for those that get one.


Looks like the odds for that happening are really good.

Cool.. I wonder how it will look with the 4x3 aspect ratio, that could be troublesome.

Ok, apparently one Android team is out because they have the teamwork/social skills of eight year olds. IRC is serious business.

[08/23/2011 -:- 10:58:13 PM] trsohmers: The team has had a lot of drama over the last two days

[08/23/2011 -:- 10:58:39 PM] trsohmers: Because of rhcp and a lot of things

[08/23/2011 -:- 10:58:56 PM] trsohmers: Rhcp left today and took the github with him

[08/23/2011 -:- 11:01:39 PM] BarronThe: and when you say you're leaving touchdroid, you mean the 'team' or the effort altogether?

[08/23/2011 -:- 11:02:05 PM] trsohmers: GUYS

[08/23/2011 -:- 11:02:29 PM] trsohmers: We have a booting kernel

[08/23/2011 -:- 11:02:32 PM] trsohmers: thats about it

[08/23/2011 -:- 11:02:42 PM] trsohmers: only 3 of us had touchpads… not much work was done

[08/23/2011 -:- 11:03:47 PM] trsohmers: So guys, I wouldn't expect much from Touchdroid

[08/23/2011 -:- 11:03:53 PM] trsohmers: or whatever new team forms out of this

[08/23/2011 -:- 11:03:56 PM] trsohmers: sorry to say

  • Chevy Estimated Range for Silverado EV Work Truck Raised to 450 miles

    When Chevrolet initially took the wraps off the Silverado EV last year, GM had estimated up to a 400 mile range based on its own calculations.  As the Silverado EV has made its way through development, it went for EPA certification and came back with 50 miles more than GM's estimate.  With this new EPA certification, the Silverado EV has an over 100-mile advantage over its only on-sale competitor the F-150 Lightning Extended Range (320 miles). The Silverado EV will launch first in WT trim with t


    All New 2024 Toyota Tacoma Yearns For Adventure

    The Toyota Tacoma has been the best-selling mid-size pickup in the U.S. for nearly 20 years. Holding such an important place in the lineup, Toyota has been very conservative with updates in the past.  The outgoing generation ran for a full 7 years, but even that was based on a platform that dates all the way back to 2004.  For 2024, the Tacoma sheds the old platform entirely and joins the Tundra and Sequoia on Toyota's new TNGA-F global truck platform.  The 2024 Tacoma is the latest (and final)


    The Ford Ranger Raptor Finally Comes to the US

    After years of being forbidden fruit offered only in overseas markets, Ford has finally deemed the Ranger Raptor worthy enough to bring to the U.S. The biggest reason for the U.S. not getting the prior version was its standard diesel power and the inability of the platform to take a sizable V6 engine. When Ford redesigned the 2024 Ranger (read more about the 2024 Ford Ranger here), they made sure to alter the engine bay and chassis to accommodate a V6. Powering the Ranger Raptor is a 3.0-li
