HP TouchPad Fire Sale: $99 and $150 WebOS TouchPads On Sale Dec. 11

Beginning Sunday at 4 p.m. Pacific, HP will begin selling $99 and $150 refurbished HP TouchPads. Here’s how to get one of these remarkable deals, most certainly to sell out.

I know a good deal when I see one. Bet you do, too.

At 4 p.m. Pacific Sunday, Dec. 11, Hewlett-Packard will begin selling HP TouchPad tablets on its eBay page here.

A great deal. These are refurbished units priced to sell and I bet they’ll go fast: $99 and $150 for refurbished 32GB and 64GB HP TouchPads.

It’ll be  many months, HP CEO Meg Whitman tells reporters, before HP spins back and returns to the tablet biz. What a turn of events. Recall that HP could hardly unload HP TouchPads at the original $500-ish price point. Now it can enter the market when the biz has shaken out a bit.

After HP discontinued the tablet in August, Best Buy and other retailers unloaded unsold tablets at $200. They sold out quickly. At $99, an HP TouchPad is even sweeter.

    First reader to send me a pic of them in an HP t-shirt gets a mint t-shirt from our nice site here, aNewDomain.net

    Thx for reading all!
