HP offers devs £130 32GB TouchPad tablets

App encouragement, or warehouse clearance attempt?

Application security programs and practises

Want a cheap HP TouchPad? The computer giant is offering "for a limited time" the 32GB version of its WebOS-based fondleslab for £130. The catch: you have to be a registered WebOS developer.

The offer comes to an end on 18 November. Successful applicants are sent a voucher that entitles them to a TouchPad for £130 - €150 in Europe, $150 in the US. HP will send you two such coupons.

The voucher has to be used by 27 November - "or while supplies last", warned HP in a bid to ensure no one hangs around.

HP TouchPad

Signing up for a Developer Account is free, though you'll need a PayPal account, HP says. There's a separate, PayPal-less Community Account, which lets you code apps but not offer them through the WebOS app store. It's unclear from the Ts&Cs whether this is good for a device voucher.

Got to be worth a try, though.

Of course, why develop for a platform that HP has all but killed? Perhaps HP doesn't care, and is simply trying to get rid of its few remaining stocks of TouchPads.
