Following the recent news that HP has halted production of the HP TouchPad new reports have suggested the tech giant is to manufacture up to 200,000 more of the webOS tablets to clear component stocks.

In the wake of the HP TouchPad culling retailers slashed the price of the 1.2GHz dual-core processor boasting tablet with eager UK adopters able to snap up the basic 16GB model for as little as £89 whilst those looking to plump for the larger 32GB TouchPad offering had to part with just £115.

Whilst HP has previously confirmed that it is to add new stocks to the TouchPad sales in the US, it is currently unknown whether any or the reported 200,000 new TouchPad tablets will make it across the pond to UK retailers.

Lining up at just 13.7mm thick and 740grams in weight the HP TouchPad boasts a 1.3-megapixel rear-mounted camera alongside a 9.7-inch 1024 x 768p and a single mini USB port.
