HP to Produce One More Run of Touchpadsby Andrew Cunningham on August 30, 2011 4:45 PM EST
The HP Touchpad's saga continues: after being introduced, discontinued, and liquidated, HP now says that it will be manufacturing a "limited quantity" of the tablets before the end of October to meet demand. This is likely being done mostly to get rid of excess Touchpad components, rather than to revive the tablet in the wake of its post-mortem success.
Discontinued or not, plenty of people are finding reasons to snap up the ill-fated tablet at the clearance price - HP is issuing a few updates and a handful of free apps to users of the device, while devs from more adventurous corners of the Internet are trying to get a build of Android running on it.
If you're still in the market for a cheap tablet, you've still got a chance - keep an eye on the Twitter accounts mentioned in HP's announcement for the most up-to-date information on Touchpad inventory.
