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"):

Got my 32GB and it's immaculate - no scuffs/scratches or signs of use. The shipping box is pretty basic, that's for sure.

Mine had Washington D.C. as a return address. I think we all got hugely ripped off by the shipping, although I will forgive HP just for the fact that they shipped it the very same day it was ordered.

Just FYI... Amazon's showing a few of the Touchstones for $39. A few bucks cheaper than Walmart if you live where Amazon's not taxed.

Maybe not the best place to ask this but others have been quite friendly and helpful to me so far.

How does a rooted Touchpad compare to a rooted Nook Color?

I have a rooted Nook Color and I really like it. It seems to do everything I need it to do and does it well. I'm debating on whether I should tell one of my friends tough crap and keep a Touchpad for myself. I do find it a bit amusing that the Touchpad's viewable screen is as big as the whole Nook Color.
Nice to meet a fellow SD San Diegan!

And, I bought a Nook Color too and was going to root it. Then, I got one of these Touchpads. In the same boat. Thinking of returning the Nook Color since I can probably get another one at the same or lower price at some later point. TPs would be harder to come by.

Welp, I have a Nook Color and I find it useless. I should have sold it long ago. I've only had a Touchpad for 12 hours and I can already tell that I like it quite a bit more.

As for why...well, for starters, I like the 4:3 aspect ratio of the Touchpad a whole lot more than the 16:9 ratio of the Nook Color. I also prefer the larger screen of the Touchpad. One of the big things I wanted a tablet for was to read comics on, and the Nook Color is just too darned small to provide a good experience. I think I like WebOS a whole lot more than Android. I like that the Touchpad has a camera and Bluetooth (although, I see now that apparently the Nook Color has unused Bluetooth that can be activated with modded firmware - I didn't know that). I really like the Touchstone inductive charger available for the Touchpad. I know it's not that big of a deal to plug it in to charge it, but for $40 or less the Touchstone cool factor is well worth it, IMO.

For me, the Nook Color occupies a sort of useless middle ground between phones and tablets or netbooks. It's too darned small to be really useful or fun, and it's too darned big to slip into a pocket or anything like that. If you want my opinion, I say keep the Touchpad and offer the Nook to the friend.

So weird, I've checked the link in my email and in my ebay account on the computer. Not much information other than "2 Business Days Left."

I got onto my iPod Touch (no smartphone yet haha), logged onto the eBay app, and I was able to get better information such as 1. it's coming from IN and 2. estimated delivery date of the 20th.

It worked to get a smidge more information for me, maybe it will someone else who stalks a tracking number as I do!

I've actually seen quite a few SD SDers, which is why when you see those threads that are in-store deals of limited quantity, I rarely even try as I know some SD SDer has already cleared out the store.

I appreciate your post, but pretty much the reasons why you don't like your Nook are why I do. I think WebOS is crap and there's a reason why it's now pretty much dead. Android has taken me a bit to get used to (I still use a WinMo phone) but I'm becoming more and more a fan of it. I also like how my Nook is small, yet can do pretty much anything I want it to do. I really only use it when I travel, which is maybe 5-6 times a year. I've got it loaded up with movies, music, games and all kinds of other crap. It's a great personal viewer that I can take with me anywhere, and it's not too big. I kind of feel like the Touchpad is a bit bulky for my intended use of a tablet is.

Actually webos is not dead. It has gone open source.

Like I said, it's pretty much dead. Sure, it's OS and there will be people who keep it alive for a long time, but that doesn't mean it's worth keeping around. Flash is very near that route too, so when people use Flash as a selling point towards Touchpads, I laugh.

Well, it sounds like you know what's right for you, then. Why are you even considering the Touchpad if it doesn't offer anything you want?

This. Pretty much the exact opposite of dead.

Boy are you confused.

The Touchpad and webOS is basically a community driven front now. Which is fantastic, because if I've learned anything from having an Android tablet, is that the community devs make magic happen.

If anyone in the SF Bay Area has a 16gb or 32gb (preferably 32gb), that they'd like to sell, please PM me. I know there are sob stories galore from people wanting these, but quite honestly, I'd really like to give one to my uncle as an early Christmas gift because he was just admitted to the hospital about an hour ago, and he'll likely be there for quite some time. Even without access to WiFi and such, I'd like to load up his gift with all the things his gadget-loving self will enjoy messing with.
