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.

I'm really speechless... I don't know if it a master play or a complete dumb thing.

And it seems that they are going to keep the $99 price. And keep saying that WebOS is discontinued.

Is HP loosing money? Is it an strategy to get WebOS to gain more value?

Obviously that there is something with WebOS that we don't know yet. Possible HP is trying to get the WebOS market more interesting for the one that is going to take over WebOS.

Please, post your theories.
