This morning started by rumors that HP, number 1 PC manufacturer in the world, was getting out of the business and moving to enterprise. As the real details emerged the timeframe for ‘evaluating’ the future of the business was said to be 12-18 months. As the day progressed things turned sour.
Harvey Norman, the exclusive Australian retailer for the now discontinued HP TouchPad, entered private discussions with HP. Just hours later radio and TV advertisements are now on-air confirming Harvey Norman are slashing HP products by 40% Australia-wide. There’s no waiting for 12-18 months, Harvey Norman are clearly cutting ties.. NOW!.
Laptops, Desktops, All-in-ones and multi-function printers are all included with the sale running from now till Sunday.
Harvey Norman’s discount brand Joyce Maine are now also advertising the 40% off HP Products. The two images below are photos from TV ads, which are running thick and fast. It’s impressive how fast HN can turn these around.
The Harvey Norman website has now been update to reflect the sale. More information @ Harvey Norman.
