Last week, HP ignited the talk about TouchPad additional stock with a “notify me” page that instructs interested parties to sign up to receive an email when more stock is available. This, combined with a blog post saying more would be available “shortly,” has sparked a frenzy among bargain-hungry gadget hunters. No one wants to miss out on the incredible $ 99 TouchPad deal a second time, so they want to know when exactly the new action is coming.
In a blog post published today, HP’s Mark Budgell clarified a few points about the additional TouchPad stock and reiterated how surprised HP was by the overwhelming demand for the tablet.
“We have been surprised by the enthusiastic response to the TouchPad price drop, and we understand that many customers were disappointed that HP and our retail partners ran out of supply so quickly,” he said, before revealing that HP took the notifications from the last week. page down due to demand.
“I also want everyone to know that we have taken down the ‘notify me’ page due to a large number of requests for notifications. Those who signed up will receive an email as soon as more information is available. In the meantime, I will continue to provide updates here and on Twitter, together with my colleague. Bryna. “
The questions and answers included in your post also address some pretty big questions, like, will there be more stock for those outside of the United States? (No.) Budgell says in the FAQ that when the new shares come in, everyone who signed up to receive the email will receive it at the same time. He also says that the company will have more information on the availability of extra stock in the coming days. Responding to concerns that some people were ordering multiple TouchPads just to sell online, Budgell says that when additional stock becomes available, HP will limit the number of TouchPads each customer can purchase.
Stay tuned, we’ll bring you more on this as soon as we hear something!
