HP to Ignite TouchPad Fire Sale One Last Time

Here we go again! HP is getting ready to launch another TouchPad “fire sale”, only this time it will take place through their eBay store. This sale was originally meant for HP employees to get first “dibs” on the device but since the internal company email was leaked – Game on.

The discontinued TouchPad will again go on sale for $100 for the 16GB version and $150 for the 32GB model. Also to be offered during the sale is a $79 accessory bundle which includes a case, charging dock and wireless keyboard. You can find them in the laptop section of the site. All TouchPads will be refurbished but still come with a 90 day warranty. Don’t forget you can hack it to run Android too!

Now I assume you want me to tell you when the sale starts, right? You know that by me telling you when the sale starts reduces my chances of getting one for my mom for Christmas, don’t you?  And I don’t like to disappoint my Momma. But… since I like you guys so much I am willing to take my chances and let you in on the little secret. The deal starts on December 11th at 6pm (CT) so you better be on time! I will be ready and waiting, 2 Red Bulls deep, ready to take out any fool in my way. Good luck and God speed, friends! :-)
