    eh, just a guess.

    i mean, i dont think they are expecting a huge rush. i'm sure they will be replenished as they sell and more ordered if demand increases. makes me want to run to my walmart and see what we got. lol

    Enyo = developer platform
    webOS = operating system

    We've seen leaks of the emulator for the former. Nothing on the latter. No we would not know.

    ok ok. Forgot to add - IMO. ease up tiger. However, I bet it's closer than most of these June dates flying around.

    I just don' see BB & WalMart having empty display tables taking up valuable space for a month or more. Just doesn't make sense. Wouldn't the tables/displays indicate a relatively imminent timetable?

    Enyo doesn't make up a large part of the operating system? I know the distinct difference between Enyo, the framework, and webOS the operating system but the two go hand-in-hand.

    webOS 3.0 is technically still in beta until its framework, Enyo, exits beta.

    And I suspect that things at the OS level are still in beta as well. I mean, c'mon, how finished has any release of webOS been?

    are alot of the displays out already? I checked out a walmart/sams/best buy (in orlando) and didnt see the displays. I agree that if the displays are OUT...then the TP is coming soon.

    feels like it to me.

    based off of my email from this HP rep getting ready to take orders, (Here) and this guys walmart actually having 2 in stock (Here), i'd say its really close.

    Thought I read on the web that BB was getting a dedicated kiosk for it and were starting to train the employees...I'll ask my son if he knows anything when he gets home from work (@ Best Buy).

    Okay, my son just got home from work and there is currently no stock or demo units onhand. They have been doing a little bit of training online. At the END of the month they're doing a complete revamping of the computer department and that is when the kiosk will go up front and center with release of the Touchpad to follow shortly after.

    I asked the seller how he knew that?

    and he said,"We have been informed by one of our members who work in HP and its vendors. We are happy to inform you about any information
    Thank you "

    I hope he is wrong, then again I've got to save a little more money to get the touchpad

    His price will be much higher then retail. $599 should be the high mark - minus accessories of course.

    No way thousands of Walmarts are just going to have empty spots on shelves with signage for over a month.

    ya, I talked to him to. He said he was informed by HP.

    All of this plays nicely into the information that says certain outlets will get it before others. Namely, walmart.
