Official FAQ for HP TouchPad reveals a one-per-person order limit with future availability
Over the course of the last few days, the frenzy surrounding the HP TouchPad has somewhat fizzled due to the lack of units available for purchase. And of course, it doesn’t help when some orders have been cancelled by HP as well.

Interestingly, HP decided to put up an official FAQ regarding their beloved webOS powered tablet – and it tucks away some intriguing new information. Currently, HP is sold out of the tablet as we speak, but after reading into the FAQ, it mentions that more information about TouchPad availability will be made known “in the next few days.” Meaning, we might once again see orders being accepted.

Furthermore, those lucky enough to sign up for email notifications for the TouchPad through HP should be able to get first word regarding its availability. Granted that HP doesn’t specifically say they’re definitely going to start selling the tablet again, the information within the FAQ alludes to the undeniable truth that we might potentially see it go live again.

Finally, HP is enacting a one-per-person order limit if and when they do start selling the TouchPad. Needless to say, it seems like a fair rule seeing that scalpers have been buying the tablet in bulk – then selling them at a profit on various sites like eBay and Craigslist. At this point, you can count on luck when it comes to finding an actual unit for sale at the list of retailers across the country. But as of right now, you might want to keep an eye out on HP if you want a chance on picking one up.
