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.

"It also gives webos app devs a few more devices to potentially eek some revenue from ;)


Are there any devs left? I thought Microsoft bought all 1000.
"

Last I looked, a developer doesn't immediately lose knowledge when switching platforms ;)

If the demand is there, devs will fill the gap, trust me.

I'm also pretty certain 10s of thousands of technical people just acquired touchpads on the cheap - expect a new wave of apps as they start fiddling.
