Yeah ^ I bought one for myself and one for my Grandmother. She wants a tablet to read the news on (tired of subscribing to the dwindling paper). I figured if this sucks, it turns into a stationary photo album for her as it's better than the digital ones we gave her for Christmas almost 3 years ago.

V I got one at Wal-Mart this morning, had to wait for the price to come into effect. There were two there and the electronics manager moved 1 to the back...

I ordered another on HP.com last night at around 11:30ish whenever the 32gb price went live. I'm still waiting on confirmation of it, but I called in last night and the guy seemed to think it'd go through so we'll see...

I got mine from walmart. The price hadn't dropped in their system yet but I convinced the rep to check on it. 5min after fooling around with the scanner she let out a yelp and demanded I give her a kiss! Apparently she was interested but didn't know about the price drop. She gave me two went on break and stood in line behind me rofl.

staples had 2 of the 32gb's and when my mom went to buy them the guy said "one's uhhh broken" so she only got one. I only wanted one to play with and one for her so it's not bad. I'll probly just put the money towards a laptop dock for my atrix

Managed to take mine back to Staples for full refund today...Id say you could get one there, but I think the girl who took my return might be buying it herself...

According to that Slickdeals thread, Best Buy sent 200K units back to HP...if thats true, HP.com should have more for sale soon...SAVE15HP should get you a 16GB model for less than $100 if so.

i went to office depot this morning and they were calling people that had ordered one last night but not already paid for it, so they told me that they had two unspoken for, but there was someone in front of me. so the manager's like "okay i have two, one for each of you" and the guy starts saying "well i wanted two, i have my buddy in the car who wants one" and i'm telling him that he should only buy one, then the manager, after about 5 minutes, decides to nut up and just tell the guy that he can only buy one, and right when he does a guy comes up and tells him that one of the people called back, so now they only have one. thanks dude.

Ordering mine through HP small and medium business since they still have some in stock. Has taken forever because the site is running extremely slow and it crashes every other time but it looks like I finally got one, submitted my order and waiting on the confirmation now.

The best part of this is that you're all going to get Touchpads, use it and go "how the hell isn't this more popular?"

I'd buy one in a heartbeat at $100. It can sit next to my HD DVD player in the halls of "things I wish had caught on"

I used a pre for about 2 months before the evo was released and had no qualms with webos --it is definitely intuitive. Theres just so little development.

I want a polished remote desktop app something horrible. Overall you cannot beat this for the price.

I guarantee in a few weeks HP will have truckloads of these things for sale via their website.

If retailers have the option of returning them to HP, I don't see why they wouldn't

if they were smart then they'd raise it to $129 once that second wave comes in. still low enough to be a steal.

Not sure if I actually got an order through or not. I got to the page that said clicking submit will submit your order and then got to a processing screen with an order id, have a temp charge on my card, but no confirmation email. HP's site is pretty much down so I can't check on there and I don't even want to try calling to check since that would probably take hours.

My HP order still says processing. The guy on the phone last night said it'd take about 24 hours to process. So I'm holding out hope.

Has anyone who has gotten it been able to get the box.net 50 gb thing? I can't yet and really would love the 50gb free storage.

here's a tip

fuck Chrome, fuck IE, fuck Firefox

use Opera

F5 on errors, but if you've got an hourglass by the address bar, let it do its thing

It will EVENTUALLY work

also it seems like the estimated shipping dates for 32GB models are sooner than the 16GB models
