Hewlett Packard: Supply more HP Touchpad stock to the UK
Since the start of the reduction of the RRP of the HP Touchpad demand has outstripped supply, recognising this and for other fiscal reasons, Hewlett Packard has decided to complete production until the end of the current fiscal quarter.
All well and good - if you live in the good old United States of America...but not in the United Kingdom.
Being told by Hewlett Packard that the last production run of the HP Touchpad range will be for USA consumption only is not acceptable given the close ties between the two countries. The impact of the product since the firesale on the UK as a whole has impacted many a household. Unfortunately we have had the situation where staff of retailers have grabbed the product for themselves and listed on places like Ebay, Craigslist and Gumtree to make a fast buck at upwards of 100% markup on cost.
There are hundreds, if not thousands of loyal Touchpads fans have been denied obtaining one by this whole debacle which has led to a state of disenfranchised grief.Hewlett Packard is hereby urged to man up and supply at least a third of the products currently in production for delivery to the United Kingdom and if possible a further third to the rest of the Global community.
