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"):

If you install Preware on your Touchpad, you can install a free Homebrew app for side loading Kindle (.mobi) files into the Kindle app. It is simple to do if you use Calibre, which will recognize your TP when connected to your computer as a USB drive. Calibre will also convert files to .mobi
They are already .mobi files, so do I not need Calibre and only need Homebrew?

Got mine back.. they did nothing.. it is still defective. I called.. no notes in the repair.. So they are sending me a box again. They offered me advanced replacement but I cannot afford the $350 taken out of my account while I await this thing to be sent back again.
Pretty unhappy.

Your getting me worried

On the Android side, just drop the .mobi files in the /kindle folder.

The Kindle WebOS app is much better (in my opinion). Use this sideloader app

Others have had great success. It doesn't even look like they tried with mine.

Anyone know where to put kindle books on the Touchpad so that I can read them on the Kindle app? (Android side). On my iPhone I can just email the file to myself and open it and it's magically in the Kindle App, but doesn't work on the Touchpad.
I did it by following this tutorial:

Sold mine and made $120 profit since my mom paid half of it originally. Seems like none of these tablets come close to the iPad in terms of pure speed and smoothness.

This thing is a piece of shit. Taking it back! Even the kids don't want it. No wonder why they dumping these cheap. Price should be 29.99.
Did you return it already? I would maybe buy it off you. You have nothing to lose since you want to return it.

Just got my Touchpad back from repair. Counter to what's been posted recently, I had a smooth transaction with Palm customer support. From calling on 12/26/2011 to receiving the unit back today, I think 10 day turn around was reasonable.

As far as I can tell I received a totally different unit. I didn't write the serial number down before sending it out, but the unit I sent out had webOS 3.0.4. The uni I received back has webOS 3.0.2. I doubt they would purposely downgrade the OS.

This unit has working speakers, which was my original complaint. Hopefully there isn't something else defective.

It may be your original unit. They completely re-image them. Mine had 3.0.4 when I sent it in, and had 3.0.2 when I got it back. I know for sure that mine was the exact same unit.

FYI: Amazon has the Splashtop app for Android as the FREE App of the Day.
(for those of you that have put Android on your Touchpad)

I know this is a long shot, but if anyone in the Socal area has an extra HP TouchPad willing to sell at cost, I'll be more than happy to take it off your hands. Please PM me. Thanks.
