As noted at TechCrunch on Wednesday, December 7, Hewlett Packard (HP) sent an email to their employees recently announcing the $99 tablet computer sale via eBay, the refurbished HP TouchPad.

According to the report, the refurbished HP TouchPad will not be available in any other HP stores including the Home & Home Office store, small & medium business store, HP EPP or the HP business outlet.

The company requested the public on their email not to call any of their call centers because they are not capable of processing an order and could disrupt its regular sales activities.
