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.

3G/4G Variant

I remember them announcing at one point that there was going to be a 3G or 4G variant of the Touchpad before the fire sale. I am curious to know if any of those have already been manufactured and/or if this extra batch going through manufacturing is (or was meant to be) the 3G/4G variants. Perhaps they had a standing order to build the 3G/4G variants and due to contracts had to fulfill it but now have decided to just manufacture wifi versions instead. I don't know much about manufacturing so I am just speculating.

Regardless, I would shell out some extra cash for 3G/4G Touchpad.

HP is still advertising on their website a 4G version coming soon powered by AT&T. Of course, that'll only happen if they decide to keep them around.
