[TechCrunch] HP Is Reviving The $99 TouchPad Firesale! Refurb Models To Hit HP’s Ebay Store On 12/11 - Page 6

post #51 of 307
Can anyone tell me how the Touchpad runs videos in Android? I've heard it has some problems play HD vids on WebOS, but the hardware should be able to handle it. Does Android use it more effectively?

But eBay doesn't have a "refurbished" section. It'll be in: Computers & Networking > iPads, Tablets & eReaders

It'll be under HP's section of Ebay, not just randomly thrown in with the rest of the tablets (it might be in addition to being on the HP section, but that's not the best way to get it.) Go look at the previous page, I posted the link there. It will be under the laptop section, because the HP Ebay store has no refurbished section (clicking on "Refurbished will just give you their policy on refurbished items), nor do they have a tablet section.

Wait, what am I doing helping people, I WANT THAT TABLET!!!!!

Webos is terrible for video playback, but that will change since the source code is being released. That's why I installed android, much more support and many more apps.

It's fine for playback, but for the files to be played via the media player. They have to be .mp4 files.

Who would want a refurb?

EDIT: Another thing, 90 day limited warranty? Good luck when most people had to have 3-4 exchanges due to quality control issues. Me, myself. I'm on my 3rd one. I'd take a year warranty over a 90 day.

It will be available for everyone to purchase on Sunday at 6:00PM (Central Time), regardless of whether they're an employee or not. It's just that HP didn't want anyone, other than their employees, to know about the firesale until Monday morning.
Quote:
there will be a short delay between when the product is posted live for sale on eBay and when the general public is notified of the sale.

Edit: Accidentally converted the scheduled time to Pacific Standard Time and said Central Time. The firesale will take place at 6:00PM CT and 4:00PM PST.
