OnSale honoring cancelled orders with a new batch of TouchPads 72
On August 21st, just a few days after HP began delivering HP TouchPads at those epic firesale prices, some major retailers had to confess to a major screw-up that resulted in more than a little bit of confusion. OnSale, as well as other retailers, ran out of TouchPad inventory very quickly in that first weekend and were unable to meet the demand of potential TouchPad buyers. Many orders that were already placed by those masses had to be cancelled due to a lack of inventory. The result: thousands of upset customers were asked to look elsewhere for the webOS tablet, which was a feat not easily accomplished.
Starting today, OnSale has made a public effort to rectify some of the problems with those very same customers by putting them first in line to order a 32GB TouchPad as soon as HP makes them available. For anyone who placed an order for a TouchPad on August 21st through OnSale's system, you can visit the link below to fill out a very small form that will leave you waiting in line once more. To make things fair for everyone, OnSale is limiting these new orders to one TouchPad per person, per household with a qualifying Order ID (which you will have received in the cancellation notice from OnSale).
You only have until September 26th to take advantage of the offer, but we imagine that if you've already been waiting this long, you'll be quick to jump on the opportunity to get a cheap TouchPad. OnSale is only able to provide 32GB models for $149, even when the original cancelled order was for the 16GB TouchPad. If you get to the website and it's taking a long time to load, don't panic. You're probably just experiencing the lag that comes from so many people rushing to place their orders.
