They didn't have a sku in front of it. Like I said, It was sitting in the Xoom's spot. There was a box for the demo unit in the case below that said "demo unit, not for sale". I was tempted to offer the kid 50$ to sell it to me anyway, but the woman was with me and prolly would kicked me **** if I did.
Haha, I am an HP Rep and we are told specifically to make sure these store employees do not sell the Touchpad Demo Unit no matter what because we would have to order another one. I have yet to go into a store with it on display so this is a cool story to hear from you, thanks for sharing!
Editing capabilities will not be capable at date of launch but I have been told that shortly afterwards that capability will be ready...I believe give it a month before the software is ready for editing.
You know for some reason I was willing to take a wait and see approach... until I saw the pic of that box. For some reason it makes it all the more real for me. I WANT ONE RIGHT NOW!!!! <-- Take that as a temper tantrum.
Nothing at the small walmart near me- will have to check out the supercenter- also that box below the box- looks like another one in a shipping box, maybe you could convence some nub to sell u that one :-P dont take it outta the brown box incase it labled as demo ;-)
I really wish I could have uploaded a better video, the walmart guy wouldnt let me hold it
Hmmm, at around 1:13, was anyone just counting the seconds until the app loaded?
On second thought, since it was the calendar and there was no network connection (it uses the cloud/Google Calendar, after all) that may be the reason, then.
I went to two Walmarts in the Jacksonville area. The 1st one didn't have a display...only the Xoom in a glass case. The one in a better part of town had an open spot, including a price tag for the 32gb model, for the TouchPad. It was next to a dead Acer Iconia. There was also spots for the Acer 7" and the Xoom. I even saw the screen protectors for the TouchPad. I was so tempted to ask the staff (maybe even bribe them) for a sneak peek.
I saw the identical thing at my Wal-Mart. There was Screen Protectors for the TP on the hanger and open spots for the dock charger, wall charger and case. I asked if any of these items where in stock and the manager said no. He does not know when and what shipments arrive.
Some Wal-Marts have open displays but most I have noticed are all under glass in the e-readers section. Apple has their own stand alone area under glass as well.
