Best Buy Has 200K Unsold TouchPads, Wants HP To Take Them Back
 

 

[pic - click to view]



According to AllThingsD, Best Buy may be sitting on a pile of over 200,000 unsold webOS Touchpads. And the retailer wants to send them back to HP.

Best Buy supposedly stocked their warehouses with over 270,000 TouchPad tablets, but the retailer can't get its customers to buy them even with a $100 discount. Best Buy doesn't want to get stuck holding the bag on these unsold tablets and is asking HP to take back every unit. The situation is so dire that HP's Executive VP Todd Bradley may travel to Best Buy Headquarters and plead with the retailer's executives to be patient.

Bradley will have to be very convincing as the TouchPad appears to be tanking all over the place. Other retailers like Wal-Mart are supposedly unhappy with TouchPad sales. Even online clearance store Woot only managed to sell 600 units when it offered the 16GB TouchPad with a $120 discount. [AllThingsD via Business Insider]

i bought one for 299, that sh*t is dope.

overclocked to 1.5ghz dual core. has a bunch of webos patches that make it run fu*king fast. multi tasking works great, flash works out the box.

its sad, because its a good device, best buy doesn't know how to sell and the ones i saw in the store weren't even updated to the latest os which fixes a lot of early bugs.
