    I've been F5'ing the Walmart site hoping they'd, you know, update it. No luck, though. Would've been nice to see which places around here had stock on time, but if there's anything I've learned from waiting with bated breath for product launches, online storefronts for big brick-and-mortars are usually the last to get a clue. Other than Apple, haha. They're always right on time.

    So, I'll probably call around in a few minutes and see if any of the 24-hour stores around here have it. Not holding my breath, nobody at any of the local Best Buys had heard of it, nor had the Walmarts when I called around earlier this week.

    (On a side note, jeez, what is it with Boston? Even though we're only a few hours' drive from NYC and are usually one of the big bold-lettered cities on weather maps, there are only two 24-hour Walmarts within 40 miles of here, and I've never seen an area so consistently clueless about new technology. Kinda miss living in the South...)

    That's probably one of the few times you'll see people complaining "there just aren't enough Walmarts!"



    I callled the ones around me (4-5) and unbelievably (or not, really) not a single one picked up. And they're all Supercenters, open 24hrs...

    9:20mins left. I'll go catch some Zzzz...

    Ahahaha, yeah seriously. Everywhere else has tons of them but it seems once you go far enough north they're nowhere near as common.

    One of the stores here didn't have any, and the other's electronics department didn't pick up. Ah well, heading off to sleep to get one in the morning too.

    Tried to snag it at the Pacoima, CA store, but they didn't have any in stock. (At least, that was their story.)

    But another couple walked in at the same exact time as me trying to snag one as well, which made up for some of the disappointment.

    12:01am in Kansas City Walmart. Just bought a 32GB model, which is what I wanted. They had 4 on the shelf, no 16GB models. Getting ready to drive home and then power it up.

    Wait, really? 'Cause I've had mine pre-ordered at the Newbury St BBY for a week or so ... they better have it tomorrow!

    Just got back from Walmart with my TouchPad! It's a little sluggish due to syncing all my apps from the phone which is completely understandable. I'm digging this so far!

    I'm sure you'll be fine, no worries. The suburbs/greater area are usually way out of the loop, but if you're talking about a relative tech haven like Back Bay, then it's fine.

    Downtown's like a totally different universe than the rest of the area in my experience, there's a much sharper difference between being "in the city" and "outside the city" than I'm used to.

    I walked into my local BB and got one today. I have been using it all afternoon and evening and it works great.

    I think you'll be very happy. I know I am!
