PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Ars Technica is reporting that US Retailer Best Buy has been able to sell less than 10% of the TouchPad tablets that it ordered from HP, and now wants HP to take them back. Similarly, deal-a-day site Woot offered TouchPads at a very aggressive price, and only managed to sell 612 of them. This is for a site that often sells out goofy tech widgets in hours. When the TouchPad was gearing up for release, there seemed to be a fair amount of interest among geeks. Is it just that it hasn't resonated the same way with the general public, or have people just been disappointed once they've put their hands on one?

Big difference is people need phones, they don't need tablets. So people if they are going to spend a "grip" on a good tablet they might as well get the best.

And yes Android is outselling the iPhone by sheer numbers cause there are like 350 different phones on the market to the 1 iPhone. And After all those sales Apple makes 70% of profits! So as is fact lots of sales but in reality only HTC and Sammy make profits and the two of them together do not outsell the iPhone.
