The return of the $99 TouchPad is official for September 28th.  Unfortunately according to the internal memo by SVP Steven Dewitt it is an employee only offering. If you are an employee of HP you can purchase a limit of one TouchPad per family on the internal website. Nowhere else in his email is there any reference to making them available to consumers via any retail circuits.

This does not necessarily imply that retail HP TouchPads will not be released.  In fact, previously HP had claimed they would be honoring orders for people who had placed them online that were later cancelled.  Not selling any of the units would be yet another blow dealt to HP customers, and frankly I am not certain HP can afford that sort of publicity right now.

If you would like to be alerted when and if more TouchPads are made available for retail purchase, please sign up to follow us on Twitter.

If you would like to read the full email sent out by HP’s Steven Dewitt, you can find it on TechCrunch.
