Gonna keep my ear to the ground and hope I can score some from HP's next shipment.

Also, I'm on the lookout for a Touchstone or Bluetooth kbd on sale as well. If someone can score extras, I'll buy one of each.

I didn't have one either. My first order at 5.14 EST was cancelled, second order at 5.45 EST has shipped (just got notification). So pretty much you won't know until you get notification or it arrives at your door. Good luck.

Hopefully I can snag a second one for family when HP has more, but I doubt I'll be awake when it goes live, whenever that is.

I think I saw on Slickdeals that Best Buy was having touchstone chargers on sale...

Yup...Seems like other accessories too

edit: nevermind, touchstone looks to be out of stock

Mine was canceled as well. Oh well, I'll keep an eye out for the additional HP shipment, but I'm not too bummed out. Its not like I was really in the market for a tablet before all this started...

So, I noticed this deal come up as a sponsored link on ebay, but I've got some niggling suspicions about it. Should I be worried? And hell, if it's screwy, he only takes payment by Paypal so I can just cancel it, right?

Yeah, I've got enough spider-sense tingling to keep me from pulling the trigger, but it was awfully close for a minute or two there.

In other news, the HP folks have confirmed that there won't be any news about new shipments today. I'm personally hoping sales open up tomorrow while people are a PAX, or being assaulted by a hurricane. Is that evil?

Blargh, I'm ready to give up on finding one. If any kind COGers get an extra, and haven't promised it to anyone else, let me know and I'll gladly pay for shipping.

Putting Android on a Touchpad is like making your red-headed girlfriend dye her hair brown.

How was it shit? I never used the phone but they do have a lot of phone apps that instead of scaling up, they just look like they are running on a phone. Phone frame and all. Kind of sad.

I've got an overclocked Pre-, the original from Sprint. Love it. Got a few Android devices around as well. Much prefer webOS over Android any day of the week.

I'm almost in the same boat. The lack of support evens things out though. They should sell off WebOS. They probably could get their most money back.

Touchpads didn't get Netflix two nights ago. My Transformer did.

Okay, I'm being a little harsh. Web OS may very well be a great OS, but the hardware around it severely hindered functionality - the speed was abominable.

This was the original pre, mind - the launch version, not that fancy updated stuff.

Really neat features, I guess, but the lack of developer support was painful. I watched the app store go from no apps at all (seriously, hadn't launched yet) to like 6000. I had it for almost two years.

Man, I tried to love the pre. Stuff did not work out.

But a tablet for my parents would be great. They kind of need one for their work, and they keep putting it off.
