HP TouchPads now selling on eBay for more than $300



OK, now things are getting really nutty. The 16GB version of the HP TouchPad is now showing up on eBay for more than $300. I just watched an auction with a bidding storm at the end that drove the price to $280 in the closing minutes. This "Buy it Now" listing has the 16GB model listed for $313 with three available and two previously sold. These TouchPads are likely ones that were just bought for $99 each and are now being flipped for three times the purchase price. At $313 those units are just $86 below the original retail price. Talk about an excellent example of the power behind supply and demand. Wow!
