HP might have up to 200 000 more TouchPads for sale in late October, helping suppliers to clean inventory
Just as it seems logical, the second batch of HP TouchPads that the company announced the other day will be on its way in a few weeks, is meant to help component suppliers clean out the accumulated inventory of unused parts they've already ordered.

This second batch won't amount to much, sources say, rather 100 000 - 200 000 units, but it will help Inventec and the other suppliers utilize their idle touch panels, batteries and chassis already produced for the 9.7" slate.

The final production should be shipping next month, with HP starting a last round of TouchPad sales at the end of October, industry sources are claiming. Those 200 000 units are probably a drop in the bucket to satiate the explicable demand for a quality $99 tablet, but we'll have to make do with it.
