If you thought that the HP TouchPad fire-sale was over, then think again as the company has confirmed that one more batch of the webOS-powered tablet will go into production.

And, although HP's Mark Budgell doesn't state how many units will be made in the final batch, online rumour mongers estimate that it will be around the 200,000 mark.

How many of those will reach the UK is unclear, as is the time frame in which they'll arrive with HP being anything but forthcoming.

"We don’t know exactly when these units will be available or how many we’ll get, and we can’t promise we’ll have enough for everyone," said Budgell in a blog post. "We do know that it will be at least a few weeks before you can purchase."

It was also confirmed last week that the TouchPad is in-line for a OTA update, making the £89 device even more attractive.
