If HP turns out to get a lot more stock in, then yes they'll get cheaper. The prices are only high on ebay since it's extremely hard to buy one in a store right now. If it ever gets to the point where anyone can go to HP.com and buy one for $100, the ebay guys will have to match.

I think it's mainly the idea that there's a limited supply, there isn't really availability outside NA, and the current work on porting other OSes that is currently driving the price up. If HP continues to manufacture them at cost, which doesn't make sense, then perhaps, but I still don't see resellers or HP themselves going any lower. It is also the only tablet that uses a dual-core snapdragon, just as the SGSII, afaik, is the only phone using such a processor, which is marginally better than the Tegra 2.

HP will not make more at this price, they are loosing too much money. The retailers will not be selling them for cheaper.

When people ask if they will get cheaper in the future, they mean vs the $250 you have to pay to get one off ebay right now.

I myself have thought this question. Mainly because I have 2 Touchpads that I waited in line for at BB.

From what I've read off Slickdeals, yes, HP may get more in stock, but the supply will be paltry compared to the supply before. Meaning that even if they get more in stock, by the time us mere mortals find out about it, the HP website will already be crashed/OOS.

I have this assumption that once the mass of stock off eBay go down in the next week or so, the price is only going to go up to around $300-$350 in my own opinion. So the longer you wait the more your going to pay if you truly want a HP TouchPad.

If it goes to 300-350 I've seen Samsung Galaxy Tabs start coming in price. I think I saw one on sake for $275ish? Wouldn't that be a better buy at that price point nt?

I see where you're going with that. There are some people that think there's going to be such a surplus that they'll eventually be able to get it for lower, though.

There is really not a compelling reason to get it at that price point ($300-350). You might as well spend the extra $50-100 to get an actual Android tablet. Personally, I think the $230-250 range is where the 16GB should sit, given the hardware. Certainly, it isn't the firesale price, but it is technically where it's worth should stand, at the minimum.

The touchpads on ebay work on supply and demand. The higher the demand for them the higher the price will be. If people stopped wanting this tomorrow then I am sure the price on ebay would drop like a rock since no one will be wanting one.

See. I think your wrong. It depends on what you want the device for. In terms of typing, I was surpised how much smoother it was than an actual Android device. I notice a significant lag on typing with my Transformer ( rooted and overclocked w/ third party keyboard). The only major factor in lowering the price is games.

If the buyer merely wishes to browse the web and watch movies...which I'm guessing is 95% of buyers, it is equal or surpasses android devices. If a buyer really wants Android, I have no doubt in my mind that Android will be ported for consumers.

Imo it was a stupid move for HP to have a firesale of this device. The management of HP need replaced imo. HP could've easily lowered the price to $300 or even $200 and they would've made a lot more money. Nothing wrong with the software at all.
