  • (10/13) HP company store (Palm) sold touchpads only to HP employees for $100 in Sunnyvale, CA. Limited 5 per person [but this is a matter of dispute: an HP employee who belongs to SD says the store did not allow 5]. Had to sign contract saying they won't resell them.

Quote from 10/4 :
  • (through 10/6) Some people were able to place *new orders* to NCIX (if they had the item in their cart previously) and have them processed, price-matched & shipped within 1 day. (Confirmed by myself)
  • Lawson went live briefly, now out of stock. 16GB for $129.99 [bandtcommodities.com]. Orders are getting cancelled and refunded about 15 minutes after it went live.
  • Links are now dead, but pcRUSH.com had non-firesale prices: 16GB for $228.35 [pcrush.com] and 32GB for $258.26 [pcrush.com]. It was possible to apply promo code paypal at checkout for $25 off. Sales tax applies in CA. As of approx. 3 pm ET, "they have about 290 backordered for the 32 and 100 for the 16." Cancellation emails are going out as of 8/5 8:23 AM PST. "Unfortunately demand far exceeded the limited supply of stock on hand. Your order has been canceled due to lack of availability."
Quote from 10/4 :
  • TPs (OOS) have dropped in price at the HP online store, they're now at $219 for 16GB model. [hp.com]/$249 for the 32GB model [hp.com] (was 399$/449$ on 10/2). Both models are OOS.
  • 32GB model at $249 was shown in stock at shopping.HP.com for a short period of time around 3-4am EST 10/3, but everyone who ordered received a notice stating that the order was declined and that they should call a particular number between 10am and 10pm EST.
  • 32GB model at $249 was available again at shopping.HP.com around 5pm EST 10/3. According to sales rep, this was a glitch on the website. No confirmed orders so far.
Rumor only:
(Rumor date - 9/21) TigerDirect supposedly has 2500 more 32GB touchpads waiting to go live shortly in a crap bundle with a 32GB unit/AC Adapter/Belkin case for $199
(Rumor update - 10/3) TigerDirect apparently still has this TP stock ... no telling when they will put it on sale.
(Rumor update - 10/5) TigerDirect apparently still has 2,470 of the 32s just sitting in the warehouses + 330 of the 16s just sitting ...
(Rumor update - 10/7) TigerDirect: Their TPs will eventually be sold in bundles -- only at CompUSA B&M stores - will not be sold online at TD website. Probably another week or two before bundles go on sale at B&M stores. TP bundles will be in all stores to get people in the door for the holiday season. Again, will not be sold online at TD website.

Thank you for your continued interest in webOS and the HP TouchPad. We wanted to update you with a status of your order 305XXXXX

Your order is still confirmed, and we are fulfilling orders daily based on the time the order was received. We expect all orders to ship by October 31st. We will continue to update you of any changes to this date via email until your order ships. We apologize that we cannot give you an exact ship date for your order. Please note that planned ship and delivery dates on the Order Status page are not accurate for TouchPad orders. You will receive a final shipping notification with a tracking number once your order has actually shipped.

If this timeline is not acceptable, please send an email to TouchPadCancel@hp.com with your instructions for cancellation within a week. Be sure to include your HP order number and the name and ship-to address on the order. Also please indicate clearly if this is the only order requiring cancellation or if you wish all orders in your name to be canceled. You will receive an automated cancel notification when your order cancellation request has been processed. Please be aware, however, that cancellations cannot be reversed, and our US SMB store has sold out of HP TouchPad and will not make any further available for sale

In addition, at the significantly reduced price, the HP TouchPad does not qualify for our standard 30-day return policy and is not returnable.

If you used a credit card for your purchase: Please check the expiration date of the card used for your TouchPad purchase. If it is set to expire within the next few weeks, you will need to contact HP immediately to update the expiration or provide a new card number. You can call 1-800-888-0292, opt 3 to speak to an SMB representative or you can send an email to TouchPadCancel@hp.com with the subject line “CREDIT CARD CALL-BACK.” Please provide the name on the order, the HP order number and a phone number where you can be reached, and a Customer Service Representative will call you back to update the credit card information. Also note that the credit card used for the purchase will be charged at the time of shipment.

Quick question: how much usable storage does it have? I assume some of the space is allocated for the operating system.
Id assume maybe 14-15, then 30-31 Gbs

Chances are that Onsale doesn't have a warehouse, and that their stock count is from another company's warehouse.

So chances are that this other warehouse (serving multiple vendors?) has been depleted already and we're just buying headaches.

I bought two anyways... laugh out loud
yeah, they are a part of MACMall
