According to one source who’s seen internal HP reports, Best Buy has taken delivery of 270,000 TouchPads and has so far managed to sell only 25,000, or less than 10 percent of the units in its inventory.
This source suggested that the 25,000-unit sales number may not account for units that consumers return to stores for a refund.
These numbers are just so hard to believe. Even if you think that the iPad is a better than the TouchPad — it is hard to believe that a retail juggernaut the likes of Best Buy can’t find more than 25,000 people that hate Apple enough to roll the dice on a TouchPad.
Once again (all together now): there is no tablet market — just an iPad market.
