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.

Good luck to everyone...

I don't think refurb TP's will have much value unless you really want one for personal use. I have tried to convince myself that I like the TP 3x now... I just don't. I have some playbooks being delivered today and don't expect to be blown away by those either. I need to just enjoy my iP2 until the 3 releases... I also think that the absence of cellular service kills the competition as well (for me). I've been a tablet user since iPad1 launch and have found that once I got used to the added utility, not having access to it at all times greatly reduced the glamour of it all... A tablet with unlimited cell data and apps galore is a very wealthy experience and business tool.

Again, good luck to those that are trying to gift them for themselves or others. I will watch from the stands unless someone I know tells me they want one.

Cheers for another shot...

sorry for not reading through all 21 pages. But has it been said if there will be a limit on how many you can purchase?

how did the case crack? was it cheap material or cheaply made?
Yes, cheaply made plastic casing-- HP even transfers you to a "special team" for the hairline cracks issue when you call for a repair. They, however, do a really good job of handling the repair though.

I work for HP. The OP posted the email they sent out to all the HP employees that didn't get a Touchpad for $99 a couple months ago when they closed them out. This deal not as good as the original.

1. It's refurbished.
2. It's being sold on Ebay.

When HP had the first offering, I had planned on buying one giving it as a gift, but they went out of stock quickly. Now I'm not even interested because it is refurbished and from ebay. Why don't they just sell it at the HP store?

well, did you not notice that hp's site stayed crippled over a day when they originally sold these on hp.com.. would you rather have HP again looses other profitable sales while the site is unusable because of all the people trying to buy loss making touchpads.

i think selling on ebay is a wise decision..

Because they don't want their servers to implode again! They just can't handle the load and taking the entire website out makes them lose money in other areas, probably.

The CM7 builds not not 100% same. My touchpad would reboot intermittently. It was very annoying and almost unusable because of that. I sold it off and bought Acer Iconia. Very happy!! Touchpad sucks!!

Haters gotta hate I have had mine for a few months and I have not had a single problem with it neither SOD or reboots. It has been great you should have waited for the new build.

I will be careful with these refurbished, it seems like HP never really fixes them right.
While mine is only one story, HP did right by me:

My brand new 32GB Touchpad would not charge on a Touch Stone (tried two units). Called HP, they overnighted a return box (first morning delivery), prepaid.

Got my fixed TP back about 3-4 days later
