PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless We're living in crazy times, that's for sure. Less than two weeks ago, HP announced it was going to quit making webOS devices. To get rid of existing stock, HP drastically cut the price of the TouchPad to a mere $99 - and this has resulted in a massive run on the device. Lines formed everywhere, and the device is now completely sold out. So, HP has just announced it is going to... Build an additional limited run of TouchPads.

Nothing is said of the price of this next batch though. Could HP actually be so dense as to think that people flocked to the Touchpad because of its virtues and not due to the $99 price? I wouldn't be surprised if they try to sell this next batch for significantly more than the fire sale price.
