If you return the computer and intend to keep the tablet, the TouchPad will revert to the full retail price of $599.99. If this is more than you originally paid for the tablet and the computer together, you will be charged the difference."

  • (10/13) HP company store (Palm) sold touchpads only to HP employees for $100 in Sunnyvale, CA. Limited 5 per person [but this is a matter of dispute: an HP employee who belongs to SD says the store did not allow 5]. Had to sign contract saying they won't resell them.

Quote from 10/4 :
  • (through 10/6) Some people were able to place *new orders* to NCIX (if they had the item in their cart previously) and have them processed, price-matched & shipped within 1 day. (Confirmed by myself)
  • Lawson went live briefly, now out of stock. 16GB for $129.99 [bandtcommodities.com]. Orders are getting cancelled and refunded about 15 minutes after it went live.
  • Links are now dead, but pcRUSH.com had non-firesale prices: 16GB for $228.35 [pcrush.com] and 32GB for $258.26 [pcrush.com]. It was possible to apply promo code paypal at checkout for $25 off. Sales tax applies in CA. As of approx. 3 pm ET, "they have about 290 backordered for the 32 and 100 for the 16." Cancellation emails are going out as of 8/5 8:23 AM PST. "Unfortunately demand far exceeded the limited supply of stock on hand. Your order has been canceled due to lack of availability."
Quote from 10/4 :
  • TPs (OOS) have dropped in price at the HP online store, they're now at $219 for 16GB model. [hp.com]/$249 for the 32GB model [hp.com] (was 399$/449$ on 10/2). Both models are OOS.
  • 32GB model at $249 was shown in stock at shopping.HP.com for a short period of time around 3-4am EST 10/3, but everyone who ordered received a notice stating that the order was declined and that they should call a particular number between 10am and 10pm EST.
  • 32GB model at $249 was available again at shopping.HP.com around 5pm EST 10/3. According to sales rep, this was a glitch on the website. No confirmed orders so far.
Rumor only:
(Rumor date - 9/21) TigerDirect supposedly has 2500 more 32GB touchpads waiting to go live shortly in a crap bundle with a 32GB unit/AC Adapter/Belkin case for $199
(Rumor update - 10/3) TigerDirect apparently still has this TP stock ... no telling when they will put it on sale.
(Rumor update - 10/5) TigerDirect apparently still has 2,470 of the 32s just sitting in the warehouses + 330 of the 16s just sitting ...
(Rumor update - 10/7) TigerDirect: Their TPs will eventually be sold in bundles -- only at CompUSA B&M stores - will not be sold online at TD website. Probably another week or two before bundles go on sale at B&M stores. TP bundles will be in all stores to get people in the door for the holiday season. Again, will not be sold online at TD website.

Just keep watching craigslist and ebay. I brought a BNIB 32GB wifi for 240 from ebay and a BNIB 32GB AT&T 4G for $230. The seller for 4G was a palm employee and did not want it. I was amazed I could get the 4G one for less than wifi. Just some patience and searching around helps. TP 4G is awesome, my ATT sim just works fine. I sold bunch of HP Veers I had bought as part of firesale, but could not get hold of TP. so in effect all solved. Now to put CM9 A2 for weekend project bouncebounce

agreed this is the best 10.1 inch tab out there for the current price. I saw a report Leo former HP ceo killed it prematurely from a previous HP CTO who was involved in buying palm. This retailed at $600 when it was released, remember?
very nice, i would love to get my hands on a 4g one... good steal!!!

Wow I thought this sucker was long dead.

I bought one of the new iPad 3s and have been enjoying it. I must say the Touchpad definitely had some better ideas going for it though. I love the cards that you can easily switch between and the charging station that I simply have to just set the Touchpad down on and it starts charging. No plugging anything in. What kills the Touchpad is the lack of apps. I really think if it just had Netflix on it the thing would be golden.

If only I could somehow mangle the two together.

Android works great on touchpad, ICS is really coming along nicely. Here is a link that I found helpful. It is for gingerbread, but the same guy has a link for Ice Cream Sandwich install.

I just wanted to say that after 6 months of off and on trying I finally scored a used 32gb for $140 last night. For some reason I've kept this thread as a subscription ever since I started looking. Well the wait is finally over and it was worth it. Loaded up dual boot cm9. Just wanted to say thank you for everyone on this board who for some reason is still viewing and posting on it. I think I can finally delete it now.

What's a good 3rd party charger as I'm sick of HP's dying every other week, then having to wait for a new one. The plug part works fine but the cord they shipped sucks. Any cheap ones that work that people have bought and can recommend?
