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.

Same here. I'm going to choose to have hope since I got a receipt emailed from Paypal, but I am a bit worried too.

wouldn't let me check out my cart.
never reach palpay Frown
Don't feel bad, I reached Paypal twice, paid and had Paypal return that they couldn't complete transaction. Had more than 1 touchpad in cart, and apparently it sold out and I couldn't complete the other transaction. By the time I resolved all the items were gone.

Poor strategy on my part. I just assumed if everything was good to guy in cart that I would be fine checking out. Oh well, knew there was a chance we'd overload ebay and paypal. Would have liked a few more for family.

Quote from waqman View Post :
No VAT tax will be charged for those who used PayPal because PayPal transfers funds from your credit card or bank account to PayPal and then it uses that to pay for the item, regardless of where the item is located in the world. PayPal is an intermediary payment company and it is an American company! Hence, no foreign transaction fees or VAT taxes! Suck on it.
I was charged a VAT on my order from ebay.uk... BUT, it didn't charge me sales tax (CA), so maybe it was in lieu of sales tax (or it was sales tax, but listed as VAT)?

I just hope they don't charge both. Thanks for the info though. Rep.

Yep. My paypal payment went thru, via ebay.ca site, received all confirmation emails, 2 16gb units for around $260USD total.

But when I go to the ebay site to see the order details, I get an error on the ebay site.

I hope they don't can our orders.. that would be stupid.

Man, what a headache. I was thwarted at ebay because it said I needed to provide a phone number for shipping, but all my shipping addresses have phone numbers associated with them. Stick Out Tongue I just couldn't get the CA or UK sites fast enough to get it to work. Oh well. My brother has been hounding me about the Touchpad ever since the order I placed for him fell through. He's getting pretty annoying since I have one and he doesn't.

Not really. when I went to US site, it say do you want to buy another. You already bought this item.
Got two through the ca site. The transaction shows up in my US account. Paypal has processed the transaction - no foreign transaction fees. Was worried about that.
