HP announced that it would be discontinuing webOS about a month ago, and that it would be offloading the remaining HP TouchPad stock at fire-sale prices. Soon after that, the HP TouchPad became the best selling tablet for a day or two, with people thronging to the stores to grab a TouchPad at just $99.
While the TouchPad stock may be almost completely disposed off now, except for a few units which HP wants to sell only to its own employees, apparently, some HP TouchPad Go tablets are yet to be disposed off. Some units seem to have been produced already, and they were leaked yesterday on a Chinese forum, where they were spotted by the guys at This is my Next.
The HP TouchPad Go was the 7 inch version of the HP TouchPad which was just a few weeks away from launch, when HP decided to kill off webOS. It sports a 7 inch capacitive touchscreen display with the same resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels. It even has the same processor as the TouchPad – a 1.5 GHz Snapdragon and comes with 1 GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage.
Hopefully, HP has a shitload of units which it will sell at $99. As I’ve said before, I’m dying to buy the HP TouchPad, and you should too. For now, check out these leaked images of the HP TouchPad Go.
