    Lol what's to be sorry about? Just because my experience downy mesh with yours doesn't make either of us wrong.

    As to the locality, I don't usually post my location because I like my semi non existent Internet privacy...

    i wouldn't put the release date back because of a single bestbuy location. imo.

    You really don't know either of those things. You may suspect them, but you don't know.

    Any way, just got back, talked to a pretty knowledgeable young guy in electronics, he said they expect to receive 2 sometime this week, but that he doesn't know when they will be allowed to actually sell them. Of course, this could mean an opportunity for an informed sweet talker to come away with one early. If he was right.

    So any way, your son the sales person said one thing, another sales person said another. It is still all conjecture at this point.

    Someone mentioned this in the other thread, but I bet they are display devices. No way they would keep only two on hand to sell, without any for display. Unless it's because they don't expect the Wal-Mart hillbillies to be able to afford one... (ok ok jk)...

    We need someone to check Best Buy and Target stock/shipments...

    i don't think the units are for displays. rather, i think they are just shipping them very conservatively at first to see if they sell. this happens often during 'virgin' product launches, which is what the Touchpad is.

    i was the one who said display units. made sense to me but others seemed to disagree.

    I just don't know how they could be otherwise. No way they could go with such a soft launch. You have to figure that even if the display only holds one, they can't have only one other in stock. I used to work retail, and we always had at least three or four of everything at launch.

    They could be going for displays for a week, then releasing it after that hype gets up - distributing literature, commercials, launch event, etc... However, seems like an odd way of doing it. But I still don't believe these are sale units. I do hope I'm wrong though, but I'd wait to hear if any other chains get some in stock. Could just be the lack of confidence in Wal-Mart sales.

    IF theres any company that will screw up and release it early. Its wal-mart. I can easily see someone giving a release date out. If enough people start asking there stores. Someone will get a answer.

    I wonder if HP is prepping for a "Announcement.....Starting Today!" type of thing here in the next week or so, and as such they want them on hand at places to make it happen. Try and rewrite the image of announcing without delivering

    I would think they are display units as well. This is WalMart we're talking about here. Why on earth would they only stock 2 units of anything, unless it's just for display?
