PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Last week, HP killed its webOS devices unit. Over the weekend, the company slashed the prices on the TouchPad. The result? The TouchPad sold out completely in a matter of hours. This confirms what I've been hearing from friends and family: "I'd love a tablet, but I'm not paying laptop money for one."

... and now HP's Touchpad with WebOS has a massive userbase. Great strategy HP - well done! I knew all along they weren't that stupid - they loss led on the end user device, to then make money on the apps and ecosystem.

Pure genius!
