Quote from 10/4 :
(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.
