    P.S. Wouldn't it be nice if that was true!?!? Lol.
    Nice, yes. Possible...

    I'll give you all the real reason for launching on a Sunday...

    "Because we can."

    Understand this is HP's first product that was released with a lot of consumer interest. HP is used to releasing products and then actually getting around to advertising them later on. After all, most people make up their mind on which computer they want by going into an electronics store and poking around the ones that are there. Statistically, the consumer picks HP more than any other brand. So HP relies more on the hands-on than the advanced marketing.

    So releasing the actual product on July 1 but not getting around to the "official" launch until July 17 is actually par for the course for HP.

    You have to stop looking at HP and expecting Apple-like behavior. HP does things differently.

    Agreed completely. And again like I have posted elsewhere, this is HP's product. Only HP get's to decide when/how it is released, updated, priced, or whatever. I just look forward to seeing what tomorrow/the next weeks brings. I love my Touchpad as is, and I can only see it getting better.

    remember this is now world wide release. If it were the 1st it would be the US only. So I would wait too.
    Gotta stay in the "NO"
