Word around the Interwebs is that Hewlett Packard will be selling refurbished TouchPad Tablets for $99 in its eBay store listed under "laptops" starting at 7 p.m. Sunday, (6 p.m. Central time) according to Gizmodo.com.
Gizmodo reports that HP will sell the refurbished 16GB and 32GB versions for $99 and $149 each, along with three-piece accessory sets (case, charging dock and wireless keyboard) for $79, according to the post. No word on how many of the now-discontinued tables will be on sale.
TechCrunch has more details on the sale, citing an HP internal memo. The memo says you will only be able to purchase the tablets using a PayPal account, so if you don't have PayPal, better set one up to be ready to buy. Also, there will be a limit of two tablets per eBay member and all sales are final with no returns unless there is a defect, according to the memo.
The sale on eBay seems plausible since HP announced Friday it was contributing its webOS software which runs HP's tablet, to the open source community. That means there is no real worry about updates and improvements to the operating software if you buy, or already have, a TouchPad.
