    Watching now and Can't help myself from grinning at the QVC sales pitch.
    Hell, why stop at national tv, lets send out a QVC van with a megaphone.

    QVC salesperson: It changed my world.

    Now they are showing a dog as wallpaper on the tablet. The dog is very good looking.

    edit: HP will not say there will be a completely different generation (unlike Apple) that will leave you in the dust. They will push that information to you.
    (salesperson says ten thousand apps but his cohort corrects him to say thousands of apps)

    edit2: Beth from North Carolina phones in.
    QVC: You're getting it from the #1 PC maker in the nation.
    Beth: I have had iPad envy for some time.. I've had an HP netbook which is great... with all these features I couldn't resist this (the TouchPad).

    QVC salesperson: It will change your world...I'm glowing and so excited (for you).

    QVC: You will hear people say: " my Ipad can't do that."

    Beth: laughs

    QVC: When advancements come, HP will provide them to you.

    edit3: long period where QVC sells a 17.3 inch HP notebook.

    Lisa calls in: I turned on QVC this afternoon and bought (the notebook) for my daughter. And my husband bought the previous product (TouchPad) for me...

    note: shows power of HP, Lisa's husband believes HP brand name for quality so they just buy the tablet without trying it out first. I hope HP delivers for them, come on Palm!

    That's cause they have too many apps running and bad memory management. The OS is overloaded and it's showing. What a disheartening demo. Thing is we all know some of the limitations. This is now obvious for the general public. I give her an A for effort. An F for execution. HP get that OTA out tomorrow!

    she didn't show skype, touch to share, youtube (flash) videos or even how email / facebook notifications work. Yeah it was a good first show and QVC = lots of pubilicity. Too much lag from too many apps open.

    I think it will be done again today on QVC a number of times throughout the day. I'm assuming each time will be live?

    The main points for me were...

    1. TP was a bit sluggish in the demo last night
    2. Not all the TP features were shown
    3. QVC Lady said there are currently ~300 TP apps but will have ~10k apps by end of this year.
    4. The QVC combo deal is a good (TP, TS, and Cover) for the price


    Here's the Link to a QVC segment. Click on the Video Tab...

    Yes it was and then some. I wonder if any execs from HPalm were watching it as it happened? I can imagine the conference lines are burning up now and not in a good way.

    It is amazing how HP sales and marketing are allowing this to go through like this. The tablet is so much better

    Looks like there is one more segment planned for today at 7PM (Eastern Time).

    Also, they are saying they've sold ~1800 units so far.

    I just placed my order, which is set to ship on the 15th and arrive by the 25th.

    Touchpad, docking station and the case for $659+$13sh&h and $40taxes. the kicker is the 5 installments payment plan. It would be nice if HP move to the next step of making the touchstones able to run by batteries as well

    I am going to call QVC back to see if an get a rush ship.
