100,000 to 200,000 Units of TouchPads to be Produced

100,000 to 200,000 Units of TouchPads to be Produced

As we all know by now, HP will be gearing up the TouchPad for one last swan song, so as to speak. Last week, HP officially announced that they were planning to produce more TouchPads by October to satiate growing consumer demand. We now have an estimated figure of 100,000 to 200,000 units to land in late October this year. Why the mad rush? More speculations below:

PreCentral - The line about unfulfilled demand is only part of the story – HP also has to deal with parts suppliers who were stuck in a lurch when HP cancelled the TouchPad, not to mention the financial consequences of breaking their order contracts with said suppliers. We suspect HP went back to the ledgers and figured it’d cost less to finish building what they contracted for and sell it at a loss than to deal with the contract termination fees and ill will that would come from sticking their suppliers with piles of custom TouchPad parts.
