It is known that Hewlett-Packard is preparing to launch the second installment of its webOS-tablet, which has already snapped up in no time due to totally junk prices. But what made the company go for it, if it has refused to produce their own webOS-products?
The official statement says that HP will release a number of TouchPad, in order to meet the demand of those who did not get this tablet.
In fact, as evidenced by Taiwanese sources, HP simply has to perform contractual obligations to suppliers, warehouses are stuck plenty of accessories for uncollected TouchPad. It seems that accountants Hewlett-Packard decided that cheaper deal with the TouchPad in full, even selling them for half or one third of the cost, rather than pay a fine partner. It is reported that we are talking about 100-200 thousand TouchPad, which will go on sale in late October.
What is most interesting and important to any changes in the business corporation has already received somewhere 800-900 thousand TouchPad – adding to that number expected 200 thousand tablets, the total user base will cover webOS-potentially 1 million people. In other words, webOS destined to become second only to Apple iOS most popular flatbed platform. By some estimates, Android-plates attract consumer attention is extremely low.
