[Pre Central] HP Begins TouchPad Liquidation, 16GB for $99 and 32GB for $149 - Page 206  

post #2051 of 2164
The hoarding should have been dealt with by HP in the beginning by allowing only one or two units per customer (like they are going to do with the next shipment). Idiotic that they didn't realize people would be buying these by the hundreds just to resell....

I've heard that American Electronics is doing a door buster tomorrow at my in-laws store in Des Moines, so they might be doing in more than one location. Might want to try calling them up!

When is this next shipment I keep hearing about? All I hear is next week and it's been next week for awhile now.

Why would they care? They are a company, Money is Money. A hoarded shipment is much faster to process and ship, as well as being cheaper to ship.

Because the more spread out the distribution, the wider the customer base for WebOS....

Its not like the hoarders are just going to keep them all... They are going to sell them.

Your point is moot. HP has already stated they will institute a one-per-person limit on the next batch of TP's so obviously they do care that hoarders jumped in and ruined it for everyone else....

HP can sell whatever they want. We won't be able to find them.
