HP has confirmed that it will refund the difference between the purchase cost of its now-defunct TouchPad tablet and Pre 3 smartphone, and the greatly reduced price at which they were later offered.

The company confirmed the refund program with a dedicated micro-site listing the details of the scheme.

"The HP refund program is our way saying thank you for choosing HP webOS," the company said on the site.

Customers that bought the 16GB unit will be refunded the difference between the purchase price and the £89 price tag it was later offered at. The deal is the same for the 32GB and 64GB variants, which were offered at £115 and £159 respectively, following the announcement that HP was killing off its WebOS devices.

Early adopters of the HP Palm Pre 3 smartphone will be refunded the difference between purchase price and £69.

Following the reduced price offers, demand for the TouchPad soared, resulting in HP making one last batch of the tablets to go on sale in the US. However, it confirmed that the UK would not be getting any more stock of the devices.

Currently, the micro-site is detailing refunds for customers that bought units in the UK, Ireland, France and Germany.
