HP TouchPad fire sale spurs online sell out, brick-and-mortars may still carry stock (updated) — Engadget

I was just at Staples and the woman answering the phone there answered each call with a message that they were sold out of HP TouchPads. I asked her if she was told to answer that way and she said it was to save time, since that’s what everyone was calling about.

The amount of consumer interest in a discontinued tablet makes me think tablets are still way overpriced. People want something decent, but also very cheap. And I think there’s a solid market in making something heavier than an iPad and something slower than an iPad, that’s also much cheaper.
