HP employees will have a chance to purchase a refurbished HP TouchPad via eBay before the sale is announced to the general public. Specifically, the TouchPads will be offered through one of HP's newest marketplaces for close-out and refurbished HP products, the new HP eBay Store <http://stores.ebay.com/hewlettpackard> .
look around
This product will NOT be available through any other HP stores, such as the Home & Home Office store, Small & Medium Business store, HP EPP or the HP Business Outlet. PLEASE DO NOT CALL ANY OF THESE CALL CENTERS BECAUSE IT DISRUPTS REGULAR SALES ACTIVITIES AND THEY'RE UNABLE TO PROCESS AN ORDER FOR THE TOUCHPADS ANYWAY.

In an effort to give HP employees first chance at a very limited supply of refurbished TouchPads, there will be a short delay between when the product is posted live for sale on eBay and when the general public is notified of the sale.

Refurbished HP TouchPads, both 16GB and 32GB versions, will be posted for sale through the HP eBay store at: 6:00 p.m. (Central Time), Sunday, December 11th. If you are interested in purchasing a refurbished TouchPad, please make yourself a reminder to log-on to eBay a few minutes before the sale starts to make your purchase.

The TouchPads will be available for sale here (under "Laptops"):

Stolen unit from Indianapolis. I contacted UPS and they won't help me. They told me to check with my neighbors, and then have the seller open an investigation with them. My neighbors don't have it, so I sent HP a message through ebay. HP sent me a message back saying per the tracking info it was delivered. I already explained this situation in my original email, so I sent the same thing back. I am awaiting a 2nd response from HP. But it doesn't look good so far. I will be opening a paypal dispute tomorrow. EDIT- I called the # and they were very helpful and said they are sending me a replacement, which will be here by christmas.
Received 16GB when 32GB was paid for - 1 (from TX)

How to Update Refurbished Touchpad from OS version 3.0.2 to latest 3.0.4

I got my Touchpad today, but the newly arrived refurbished Touchpad is running OS version 3.0.2 and claims to be up to date. Of course, we know that the latest OS is 3.0.9 from the retail Touchpads.

In order to update it to the latest OS, you have to use webOS Doctor. First, go through the Setup steps on your Touchpad and create a webOS account, aka HP Profile. Then to go http://www.hpwebos.com/account and log in. Clicked on Device Options and download the webOS Doctor.

Once webOS Doctor is downloaded, run it and follow the steps until it asks you to connect the Touchpad. Before you connect, you have to put your Touchpad into USB Update mode using these steps [hpwebos.com] listed on the webOS Doctor FAQ.

Then the Next button should show up and it will proceed. The whole process took about 1 hour, and my Touchpad is now running on the latest 3.0.9 and hopefully it will receive future OS updates too (if not use these steps again).

-- c46

FYI, I tried to update from 3.0.2 to 3.0.9 for multiple times without success yesterday. And gave a first shot today, it updates smoothly by itself, takes around 20 minutes. If you don't wanna to go through webOS doctor, you may just hold on for a while and just keep on trying. System itself doesn't have too much difference.

Just a heads up. The 30 lbs showing under your tracking IS only for 1 Touchpad. If you ordered 2, you can track the other one by REFERENCE if you have or set up an account with UPS to be able to view "Additional Information". Once you are logged in and use your existing tracking number, you will see under additional information a reference number. Simply take the last number of that reference number and increase or decrease by 1 and then copy and paste that to "track by reference", select United States and your zip code and do your search. You should see the other package in transit. I have 4 separate shipments, 3 from Indianapolis and 1, scheduled for delivery today, from Edison NJ. Again,you need to create an account with UPS to see this additional information and reference number. I have delivery alerts set up with "My UPS" and that's how I know.


Alternate tracking by REFERENCE without signing up for UPS account.

your an asshole for posting this. Now you probaly wont be able to get one and no other HP employees will be able to get one. Just a bunch of slickdealers.
Suck it up man, HP employees were soaking them up when they first went on sale, and don't give us all the crybaby about how you won't be able to buy 5 of them and then sell them on fleaBay to make a few bucks. You guys already get first dibs so what are you all butt hurt about? Beat it troll.

No thanks. Had one, and ended up getting rid of it.

Good luck to all of those who are still trying to get one though.

great, i just sold my 32gb last week for $240.
I sold my 16GB on Amazon this week for 229. Only used it about 10-20 hours. When I realized that I could turn it on, go to the bathroom and take a dum*, return and it was still booting up, that was it. That coupled with a real lack of any freaking applications. I original paid $85 for it because early on the HP's website was accepting the $15 off 100 coupon code. I think they stopped that when they (HP) realized some were getting the Touchpad for only $85.

Having owned the touchpad since the original firesale I personally don't think it's worth it if you're planning on using it strictly with WebOs. I thought that the lack of apps wouldn't be that big of a deal as I got it primarily for web browsing but I find myself using my wife's ipad a lot more.

For those planning on stocking up on these again for resale, I don't know about other locations but around here the prices for touchpads (brand new ones) have dropped significantly. The demand just isn't there anymore.
The prices on ebay for the 16gb are about the same, if not higher than they were a month or so ago.

LOL Suckers. Here we go again with the mad scramble for the last crumbs of a failed device. Good luck with that. Did it work? Is the competition gone so I can snag another one?
It didn't work.

ebay system will be totally fine. they had run doorbuster promo couple of years ago where 100k or so people searched for the item at the same time. On top of that many people used a script from mr waffle (veterans here must remember him) that would make queries continuously in a loop. Ebay systems didnt blink an eye..
Where can one find such a script Wink

Nothing wrong, but I already have too many tablets and I heard that HP will announce the death of WebOS in 2 weeks.

I really like the TouchPad/WebOS I hope they do end up selling it the right company or make it open source.

LOL. Purchasing a refurbished Touchpad is just asking for trouble. Many TP owners had problems with them new out the box. I like my TP but I can't believe a big company like HP released this tablet with so many bugs. shake head

Awesome, Cyanogen team is working on android ICS on touchpad, CM9. The quadrant scores on this shows a very fast hardware so for this cheap a price this can't be beat. Check out my youtube video.

These are gonna sell out in the first 15 seconds....GUARANTEED! Nationwide, I'm betting hundreds of thousands will be trying to get one (million?).

This news is already making it's round even on Craigslist!

There is more interest in this than if John Lennon comes back from the dead and the Beatles reunite for a farewell concert!

TouchPad is heavy & bulky - You may consider the Asus orPlaybook tablets.
