Despite the discontinuation and the startling HP TouchPad Fire Sale last week, it has been known that HP is creating more Touchpads for their customers. That sounded not right, does it? It has been told that HP just wanted to satisfy unfulfilled demand of the consumers.
So I made a few research and found some theories behind it. One qualified theory is that, HP does not want to cut off ties with its Asian suppliers/manufacturers. The sudden and “careless” sale of the touchpad would mean a good deal for consumers, but what about the companies behind the production? It’s like cutting off the projected production and HP would not want a conflict because of that. So this would lead to a slightly continuation of the production, just to breakeven or atleast make a profit for the manufacturers WHILST telling the consumers that customers are their biggest concerns.
Smart move.. but not that wise. (referring to the recent fire sale)
Just my opinion.
