    right, HP initially limited supply of their slate 500 production, just so they can claim they "sold out", and had "huge demand".

    Guess what was found out later? they only made 9000 of those. lol

    Are you sure they did just "just so they can claim they 'sold out'"? Or, could one of the reasons possibly be that after announcing the product, and promising it to end users, they subsequently bought out a company with an existing OS, and decided on a new roadmap? That they then produced a few for special orders in an effort to fill orders for those that still wanted the device in spite of the newly announced roadmap?

    I know that acknowledging that, even as a slim possibility, would mean acknowledging that HP did something right, thus indicating they're not the total idiots that some folks think they are - but it is a possibility.

    right, if the initial available date is Oct 22nd, they wouldn't have any pre-order 3 months before that, would they?

    So when there is no pre-order of the products, HP still produced special orders in an effort to fill an none-exist order?

    I said nothing about filling pre-orders, I said they promised the product, and produced some to fill that promise, for those buyers that still wanted them. However HP did have pre-orders.

    limit first production
    media then reports sold out.. in turn drives up consumer demand

    basic supply/demand economics right there

    but they also are launching quite global the first day, so maybe it is a production limit as well.
    That's not anywhere close to how "basic supply/demand economics" works. In fact, it's the exact opposite.

    I received another confirmation from an HP sales rep that the units will not ship from HP until July 1st. I replied and politely told him "Thanks, but no thanks. But feel free to contact me if the units will ship to arrive on the 1st, otherwise, I'll go buy my TouchPad, Touchstone and case at a local retailer." I'm not expecting a reply.
