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 got my order confirmation at 7:20pm EST, but I've yet to receive a shipping confirmation. I'm guessing within the next half hour?
Same here. I got order confirmation at 7:36pm EST but no shipping confirmation yet. FYI got the 32 Gb from local Ebay and not CA or UK, after countless refresh at both the confirm order page as well as paypal payment page.

I had 2x 16GB touchpads in my cart before the sale went live, and right as it did the prices changed and I clicked complete order, then after an eternity the page loaded and kept telling me I needed a stupid phone number associated with my address before it could ship, but by then the server was hosed and I had to keep trying for 20 minutes till I could add a phone number and by then it removed the touchpads from my cart :-(

I was able to order 2x 32gb touchpads through ebay.ca but that was at 30 minutes after it started.... they accepted my paypal payment but who knows if that means I got one or if they'll refund it tomorrow.

Got screwed over because they wanted a stupid phone number....

Like I said, you can't order through Android Market without a preexisting Android device--Gmail or no Gmail.
It's possible but a lot of work. Involves the Android emulator, a custom image and a bit of work Wink

I finally got one earlier tonight (32GB) so thumbs up (assuming it is delivered as expected). Will I actually have any use for it or will it become the next Nintendo Wii that has been collecting dust for years after my epic quest to get it? I'm not sure and frankly I don't care now that I've got one. I won't even use it. I will put it on my kitchen table and hold a ritualistic ceremony to honor it. I will force my wife and kids to walk around said table and praise the all mighty Touchpad. I will caress it and night and if anyone ever wants to take it they will have pry it from my cold dead hands. Now, my life is complete.
Bwahahahahahaaa... REPPED.

It's not a crime to complain about shipping prices, especially when you come with the expectation of getting a out-of-store price 100/150$ tablet. Tax is understandable, but $20 for shipping? It should be more like $10. And if they were really cool, it'd be free.

Of course, this deal is still hot, and of course shipping should not deter anyone from enjoying the tablet.
Why did you expect $100 and $150? Because the previous sale of touchpads? HP never advertised this sale to the public...it was leaked by an employee. If you want to feel bad for anyone, feel bad for the poor HP employee who really wanted one of these but didn't get one because the Slickdealers gobbled them up. I'm sure they would gladly pay the extra $19 shipping if you hadn't bought theirs.

Yes, I understand $19 for shipping on a $99 tablet is a huge ripoff. Yes, I know it probably costs around $8 or 9. Did you guys not see it right there underneath the price? Did it say anywhere that shipping should be free?

Sometimes I just can't believe people on SD. Yes, we are SDers trying anything to get the best price but this is like trampling people at Walmart to get $20 off a blender.

Not that anyone cares, but it took me about 50 minutes of pulling out my hair until I finally got one today. The Ebay.CA worked better for a bit seemingly but it finally went through on the US site. I wanted a 16gb but got stuck with a 32gb.

It's sad that my 150$ tablet ballooned to 185~$ after tax and shipping... Now I'm thinking about how I could of bought a netbook or ultraportable which can do REAL work that I REALLY need and how this tablet is just a goddamn toy.

Mixed feelings...

I'm absolutely NOT one of the people leaving negatives reviews for it though.
It's not for real work. It's for access to email, internet and apps in locations where a laptop isn't practical. Think meetings, the gym, coffee shops, restaurants, bed.

I kind of thought the same thing when I payed for a bundle a few months ago. But keep in mind this was released only 4~5 months ago with over $300 worth of the latest hardware alone. With or without the likely Ice Cream Sandwich port, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised what an awesome device this is.

Especially if its your first tablet.

No one made you order it. You were aware of the cost of shipping, but yet you went ahead and bought it.

All the whiney fgts complaining about the $20 shipping is pathetic.
