Apparently, the HP TouchPad
is not such a hot seller. In fact, the sales of the HP TouchPad are so bad, that Best Buy is wanting HP to take the leftover touchpads back, as it is causing them inventory problems.
Best Buy had 270,000 HP TouchPad delivered to their stores and only 25,000 have sold, causing them a massive overload in their inventory. Not only is Best Buy having trouble selling these tablets, but according to Analyst Rich Doherty of Envisioneering Group, Micro Center, Walmart and Fry are having the same problems.
Rich Doherty is blaming sales on the price, as he thinks customers are waiting for another price drop.
