It's pointless. They won't sell them for $99/$149 since it costs more than that to produce them. I mean there's a reason no one bought them at their original price point heh.

If HP prices them "too high" again (e.g $300), the pads will just sit around until they are forced to clear inventory again

HP already announced that they are going to sell them at the $99 and $149 price points, the new units they are producing are units they were already contracted to produce, so whether they built them or not, they were still out the money.

That's good news. All the articles I read previously suggested they would sell them at a higher price.

Multi-touch support in android is now working



This has been one of the things holding up development until now.

The current word on the street is that CM7 has most of the honeycomb UI perks already implemented (which they already use for many other tablets,) and they are well on their way towards a release. CM7 is operating as a separate project from touchdroid, but iirc they are sharing their work.
