Went to the Best Buy in Cincinnati, OH at 9871 Waterstone Blvd (off of Fields Ertel / Mason-Montgomery) and they put the Touchpad out on display literally minutes before I got there. In fact, while I was using it, they came up to put a SKU sticker on the back of it.
The sales associate explained they just had their HP training, so I let him explain Just Type, cards, wiping, etc. to me. I acted like I didn't know anything about it. He did a good job and seemed fairly knowledgeable on the Touchpad. I asked if he would buy one and he admitted probably not, but that is because there are a lot of tablets and he isn't sure if there is one that meets his needs.
I don't think it felt any heavier than my 1st gen iPad. It was quick and responsive, except for the demo app trying to interrupt all the time. The calendar app looked great to me, as did the pictures. I couldn't get it to play any sound, not sure why that was. Regardless, I am really looking forward to getting my own!
