Mark Budgell over at the HP blog:
Despite announcing an end to manufacturing webOS hardware, we have decided to produce one last run of TouchPads to meet unfulfilled demand. We donâ€™t know exactly when these units will be available or how many weâ€™ll get, and we canâ€™t promise weâ€™ll have enough for everyone. We do know that it will be at least a few weeks before you can purchase.
Does anyone actually know what’s going on at HP these days? Are they just trying to get rid of the components to calm their suppliers? That’s the only reason I could think of.
