A week ago or so, HP announced that it was pulling the plug on their webOS devices, including their TouchPad.

A few days ago, TouchPads go on fire sale for $99. And guess what? They are selling like hot cakes.

Now HP TouchPad will soon to be running Google Android via Touch Droid.

Ironic. There is a chance that HP TouchPads get popularity via Android. Or in other words, HP could have played all this much better and saved $1.2B, and still be in the tablet race.

Oh well…

    Wasn’t the hardware the crap bit of the Touchpad, and the software the good bit?

    Maybe a $99 price point makes a bit of crapness forgivable? ;)

    HW is average. SW is good, but not enough momentum; super competitive time and space at this moment… Cheers.
