With the HP TouchPad on sale for $99, it’s pretty much impossible to get your hands on one at this point of time, let alone a white-colored version of the tablet. Well, one lucky webOSroundup forum member managed to snag one before HP announced the discontinuation of webOS devices and started recalling them from stores nationwide. He had placed the order the day it went up for sale in the UK in the very same week, before HP made the announcement.
Fortunately his order got processed and he managed to snag one of these tablets. Pages that used to host links for the white TouchPad now lead to laptops in the UK, or Sold Out pages in the US, so it’s uncertain how many of these were sent out. But those of you who picked one up, consider yourselves very lucky, and hang on to it. Depending on whether HP chooses to start selling off the remaining stock of the white webOS tablet, you might be able to make a fortune off eBay in the future.
