HP employees given chance to buy last batch of TouchPads

HP Touchpad

The end of a very short era at HP is around the corner as they announced internally that the employee purchase program surrounding the HP TouchPad opens up at 9:00 am Pacific on September 28th, giving them the opportunity to buy the 16GB version for $99.99 and the 32GB version for $149.99 while supplies last.

Many will end up on eBay where they’re currently selling for $200 or more.

There was a good amount of excitement surrounding the release of HP’s first (and maybe last) tablet back in February, 2011. The slow sales and lack of developer adoption for webOS doomed the device. Since then, Microsoft has done a good job of trying to pick up the developers left over from the downfall of webOS.

Here is the release from Stephen Dewitt, Senior VP and GM of HP webOS Global Business Unit, sent to Matt Burns from Techcrunch from an HP employee.
