Thanks Damage!

A quick total for one is $168.22

HP Tablet is $155.76/ Shipping is $5.77 / Estimated tax in IL is $12.46

Looking at the BB invoice for pick up it was (is) (pending)

$149.99 / $10.50 total of $160.49

Good deal.

BTW - another rumor....through the grapevine...someone's already rooted it and will be posting an Android image for it next week...(note this is only a rumor).

HP Touchpad 64Gb / 1.5Ghz Dual Core CPU

Wonder if HP will be dumping these as well.

Thanks again Damage; I was kind of upset about the BB thing from this morning...

Rumor control.

It's been rooted for a while.
Rootzwiki has a team porting Android.
HP has a 4G version " coming soon" on their site???

Ok that last one isn't part of the " rumor control ".

yeah the BB thing looks like it was a fiasco for many. i didn't get in on the onsale deal (looks dead now) - hoping my 2 through hp academy actually ship, but i've been reading about lots of cancellations from friday night

Interesting saw that folks were still able to buy them at HP SMB...just checked it out and saw this:

cpqUtil error '800a0005'

Cart::Retrieve()->Error in object cpqUtil.OrdForm, method GetOrderForm - Invalid procedure call or argument

/dstore/include/LeftNavContent.asp, line 158



Trying to navigate on the HP SMB site and it just is going to blank pages.

Never seen so many posts for one deal on "Slickdeals"....breaking records...

from SD

From HP's community outreach account on Twitter

BrynaAtHP Bryna Corcoran
Those who purchased from SMB site, here is what I know. If you purchased and rec'd confirmation ystday - you are on backorder. BUT..

BrynaAtHP Bryna Corcoran
SMB store plans to fill as many of those orders as they can as soon as next batch comes in. Consider your #touchpad on reserve for now.

BrynaAtHP Bryna Corcoran
Those on SMB site who were charged higher price than $99 due to pricing error, you'll be credited to the $99 price. See bit.ly/qONEtg

BrynaAtHP Bryna Corcoran
If you have rec'd a confirmation. - you are considered 'next in line' when new batch of TouchPads come in.

BrynaAtHP Bryna Corcoran
If you rec'd a cancellation - sign up here to be notified when the next ones will be coming in: bit.ly/et96p2

BrynaAtHP Bryna Corcoran
Sorry, crazy day! Can't tweet fast enough. Wrong URL (my bad) 2 sign up 4 alert on TouchPad stock, instead go here: bit.ly/o1iuzl

BrynaAtHP Bryna Corcoran
Regarding 'next batch' coming in.. it's called a warehouse. No more being made, but have inventory coming from ones already manufactured.

BrynaAtHP Bryna Corcoran
And no I do not know how many units are coming in from the warehouse or when. All I know is they are trying to get them here asap.#wishIknew
