HP: No extra TouchPads outside of US

HP has released an official statement revealing any forthcoming TouchPads produced won’t leave US shores.

We reported earlier today that HP were set to offer one final batch of TouchPads in October, but HP has now added that the “limited quantity of TouchPads will be available in the coming weeks in North America only.

“In EMEA we are discontinuing the webOS hardware operations and will not offer any additional products beyond what might be currently available in selective outlets”.

Sounds pretty final; but if you’re looking to get your hands on a TouchPad still, eBay UK trade is still brisk, with the 16GB version still very much available – if sometimes not in mint condition.

HP decided to give remaining HP TouchPads a huge price-cut following the news that they would stop manufacturing webOS hardware, though they are still looking to support the webOS platform.

Manage to grab a bargain tablet in the last few weeks? How is the TouchPad faring? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter.
