HP Co.’s TouchPad tablet ranked as the top-selling tablet product this week at Amazon.com post clearance to $99.00.
The TouchPad 16GB SKU ranked No. 4 in the same period.
Both SKUs have held an out-of-stock status following a price cut to $99.99 for the 16GB SKU and $149.99 for the 32GB SKU. The tablets previously debuted in July at $499 and $599 respectively.
Retailers including Wal-Mart Stores Inc., Best Buy Co. Inc., and Barnes & Noble Inc. have cleared remaining inventory of the in-demand product.
Sellers at Ebay Inc.’s website are nabbing a $100 premium for each SKU amid an immediate supply drought.
Meanwhile, HP is continuing to fulfill a mass of orders taken from its consumer and small business sales divisions, with many consumers claiming backordered status on the devices.
Both include a 1.2Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon Dual-Core CPU, 1GB RAM, and the webOS operating system in a 1.6 lb. device.
Despite powerful specs, the TouchPad held tepid demand at launch with 25,000 units sold.
