Earlier today we heard that HP would be releasing more HP TouchPad tablets in the next few weeks to satisfy the demand for the $99 tablet, now it looks like the last run of TouchPad tablets will be US only.
The guys over at Mobot spoke to HP’s PR agency, and have found out that the last ever HP TouchPad tablets will be available in the US only, so that means no more TouchPad tablets for us here in the UK and Europe.
We are pleased by the response to webOS and look forward to customer feedback so we can further enhance the platform. A limited quantity of TouchPads will be available in the coming weeks in North America only. In EMEA we are discontinuing the webOS hardware operations and will not offer any additional products beyond what might be currently available in selective outlets.
So it looks like if you are still trying to get your hands on a HP TouchPad here in the UK you will probably have to end up getting one from one of the various auction sites for more than the $99.
Thanks Emma for the tip!
