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.

I know I'm new here, but I wanted to see if anyone wants to sell a 16gb model at cost or for a small profit. I clicked BIN within 10 seconds but never got ebay to work. It was supposed to be a Christmas present for my wife. I didn't find out about the .ca trick until it was too late. Embarrassment

Feel free to PM me if interested.

My refurbished 32GB Touchpad arrived. It's running 3.0.2, but claims that it is up to date. How do I persuade it to install 3.0.4 ?

Got one in a brown box, condition was excellent except for a small ripple on the rubberized border around the screen.

Anyone else have their volume button rattle slightly when they shake their unit?

I just got 2 32gb touchpad. One works fast. But the other one cannot be powered on.
What's wrong with it? They both look brand new.
send back? or can I change a new one?

there seem to a lot of new sd'ers on this thread who were not involved in the first go round in August. that means basic questions are being asked which is fine. Be aware that slickdeals has an INCREDIBLE amount of good information regarding the TP. search and ye shall find

my first inclindation regarding your comments is to ensure that the power plug cylinder is clicked in so that power is getting to the usb adapter...you have to tigthen it and hear the click at the outlet end before the contacts engage to give power...try that. Also ensure you hold down the power button for a few seconds....let us know we are here to help

That FAQ does not apply to tablets....

HP eBay store sells Computers/Laptops/Printers etc.

Those are all generic for those above, same happened to shipping charges. HP eBay storefront has standard shipping price since they opened...
why would it not apply to tablets? it doens't include any exclusions in that list.

Hey guys, i've been lurking around for a while and decided to stop being a lurker and finally make an account.

A fellow Sd'er posted in this thread about a ipad1 case on amazon and I had to buy it because of how cheap it was after a huge sale and how elegant it looked. It just came in the mail today thanks to my amazon prime student 2 day shipping (free).

the case is freaking gorgeous and the quality is amazing.

Sadly i do not have my touchpad that i ordered to put it in the case yet, but according to the other Sd'er it fits well and all the ports are accessible.

amazon link [amazon.com]- original 54.99- 82% = $9.96 plus shipping (free with amazon prime)

Pics!

Have you ever clicked on any of their auctions?

They've been around since August and all the auctions are the SAME format.

They used the same everything, just change the description.

The Tablets Refurbs, as proven by many people that received them already, are NEW tablets in brown boxes...

I'm within pretty much an hour walking distance from Parsippany.

Yet they decide to ship from Las Vegas. Incredible.

Needless to say, I already tried the System Updates app. It insists that there is nothing beyond 3.0.2.

yea exactly.. don't worry about damage XD

are cancallations not still new items? open box can be new as well depending on who had it, and returns can just as easily be brand new, but people that simply didn't want it after all. since there was no returns for touchpads then that only leaves open box or cancellations.

I'm still trying to see how i was not right
