The speed at which it disappeared from inventory has been stunning. We have decided to produce one last run of TouchPads to meet unfulfilled demand.
A statement from Hewlett-Packard • Revealing that the company’s late-round success with the HP TouchPad was enough that they’re going to produce more of them and sell them at fire-sale prices. Which is hilarious, and tells us all that the decision to stop selling them was perhaps a little too rash. Good work, HP! source (viafollow)

A fascinating new discovery on the TouchPad: While Best Buy’s Canadian site is selling the TouchPad in-store, the U.S. site says they’ve simply stopped selling the devices altogether. We’re in an investigative mood today. There are two Best Buys within five miles of us. We’re going to Best Buy. We will take photos and report back.

Hewlett Packard’s stock reflects yesterday’s poor decision-making

» Investors were NOT happy with the news: HP fell down to its lowest level in years — a level so low that they last time it was at this nadir, Carly Fiorina had just left the company. We think this should tell HP something — killing off the race horse (WebOS) immediately after it starts the race is terrible business strategy, and investors will not react kindly to this. That was your future, HP, and you blew it because you had no idea how to feasibly make it work.

HP, a storied Silicon Valley icon that dominates the personal computing industry, announced it will discontinue the WebOS-based “TouchPad” tablet computer and phones, which have failed to catch on with consumers.
HP spent a ton of money on this thing. And it’s already done. (EDIT: Along with the Pre and their cell-phone business.) That’s it. Big deal. A lot of big news today in HP-land.

HP’s making WebOS an option – for your laptop and desktop (Whoa!)
Need any more proof Windows will die someday? Well, here you go. Starting in 2012, HP will start offering WebOS on its PCs, allowing users to choose between Windows and the Web-oriented operating system. This is a huge step, because it means two major companies – Google and HP – are pushing away from the traditional Windows model. But HP’s corner-stoned on the model, so it’s even bigger than Google’s Chrome OS. This is huge. source

Give it up for Palm and HP: Their new WebOS lineup looks awesome
Today’s big winner? HP. Specifically its Palm unit. Today, they revealed a bunch of awesome WebOS products that could potentially get the also-ran back in the game. Above is a feature that the iPad can’t do with the iPhone, to the point that it created a whole cottage industry of apps (Instapaper, Read it Later) to make it happen. But the TouchPad can do this with a Pre, the Pixi, or the new baby brother, the Veer. If the iPhone or the Android were able to do this, it’d be a real game-changer. And reportedly HP is working on WebOS PCs, which would effectively be a more robust version of Google’s Chrome OS. So, yeah, this is a pretty stacked lineup, kids. The only real question we have: How much does this stuff all cost? source
