HP Touchpad on sale again, this time for developers

HP TouchPad tablets with 32GB are on sale to developers with a qualifying coupon

Hewlett-Packard has put its TouchPad tablet on sale again, this time to WebOS developers with qualifying coupons for purchase of the discounted tablet.

HP is offering developers with the coupon a TouchPad with 32GB of storage for US$149.99 in the U.S. and Canada, €150 (US$206) in Europe, and £130 (US$208) in the U.K.

"If you have already submitted a request for a coupon, we are currently processing requests. Remember, coupons issued are only good through November 27, 2011, and while supplies last," HP said on its site listing the offer. New coupons requests are not being taken.

The company is also offering TouchPads for $149.99 at Wal-Mart and Best Buy bundled with a laptop purchase.

HP in late August said it would discontinue making devices running on WebOS, including TouchPad tablets. The announcement was made when HP said it was considering spinning or selling off the Personal Systems Group.

A buying frenzy ensued and HP sold remaining TouchPad tablets starting at $99. The company late last month said it was retaining its PC unit, but the fate of WebOS hangs in the balance.

The new offer represents a more selective and creative way of selling off the remaining TouchPads, while keeping WebOS development efforts alive.

HP has said it will continue supporting the TouchPad.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.
