    Update: per above Arlington Road Walmart in Akron Ohio.

    I played with it for about 10 minutes. (edit: wife says more like a half hour haha) Very fast. Opens apps as fast as you can open them. I connected w my Sprint Pre on freetether & it loaded pages pretty quickly. So i'd assume wifi at home will fly! I asked if they'd sell them at midnight & he said oh these aren't for sale yet? So I bet they'll sell early. I was very impressed & had a excitement buzz like a kid does for xmas haha and i'm 30yrs old!

    Things I learned
    -the button that makes apps switch has a lightbar behind it and isn't always lit. Pics looked like it was a printed white line.
    -No camera app to just view the cam & take pics even tho its front facing
    -It had air hockey hd, sparkle hd, some kids piano game and some others preloaded.
    -its very awesome
    -it was hard to leave the store

    No sign of the TouchPad in three WM SuperCenters (24hr stores), though their electronics staff was surprisingly aware of the product.

    Sadly, one of the stores claim that they may not get any on the 1st, though he's not 100% sure. In the end, they all agreed that the best tactic was to call next week (a day or two before launch) to verify stock.

    Interestingly enough, these stores are in high traffic areas and with a population of roughly 2MM (county-wide), so I'm baffled that they're not yet in HP's target for these early displays.

    Hopefully next week we'll have better developments, but this isn't helping with the anxiety...

    They had the demo unit box opened in the case underneath, it was empty and nowhere to be found. The workers were clueless as to what it was or where it was.

    STORY OF PALM / HP 's life. I was talking to a buddy who works for HP, he has no clue. He started talking about the iPaq and HP's previous tablet efforts.
