Tablet fans in the US will have yet another opportunity to get their hands on the doomed HP TouchPad for just $99 this weekend.Starting Sunday, December 11th at 6:00 p.m. Central time, 16GB and 32GB Touchpads will be available on HP’s ebay store. A $79 accessory bundle will also be available, which includes a case, charging dock and wireless keyboard. Look for them in the laptop section. As you would expect, there are some caveats with this deal with the main disappointment being these are refurbished
TouchPads rather than the brand new models sold during the first firesale.16GB models will cost $99, while the 32GB tablet will set you back a modest $149. HP says the items will appear in the laptops section of its store and that all sales are final.
The sale will begin at 7pm EST and is unlikely to last much beyond 7:01pm given the demand for the dirt cheap devices during HPs numerous numerous attempts to shift the remaining inventory.
We are hearing there will be limited quantities but I have a feeling they have a pretty big stash. Users will be required to pay via paypal but that shouldn’t be an issue for most that have used Ebay in the past. Although this is awesome news there is a small catch:
1.The tablets will be refurbished tablets.
2.TouchPads are limited to two per customer.
3.All sales are final.
4.There is only a 90 day warranty.
Specs include a 9.7-inch multitouch (capacitive) 1024×768 display, a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon dual-core APQ8060 processor, HP WebOS, a front-facing 1.3MP camera, and internal speakers with Beats Audio.
