    I was in Costco today. I saw the touchpad and wanted to see if it had the new update. Well, the touchpad wasn't on and it was under a full plate of glass. Is this not the dumbest thing you've ever seen? How do they expect people to buy one if they can't try it?

    Yeah, that is a fail. They need to get a better display set up.

    Wow. That's a unique way to display a touch-only tablet.

    But it looks like that's the way HP intended to have it displayed. It's an official HP display, right?

    maybe its because members just buy it and since Costco has a great return policy they just can return it :-)

    They did the same thing when they had the Xoom in store. They left the Iconia tablet out while they had that one in store though. Must be there policy based on the tablet price.

    My local Sam's Club has a demo unit out, but it's sitting on the activation screen waiting to be connected to WiFi! How lame are some of the employees who do this stuff?

    I might agree except Costco has the demo model of the Acer tablet accessible for customers to try out.

    It was on and under glass at my Costco. I thought it was funny, especially since the demo app says in big letters "try me."

    Heheee....that is hilarious! Thanks and what were they thinking? Actually, may be a bad part of town and many Walmarts no longer display prime-time items like iPads and TouchPads because people break the security cables and steal them. So much for Walmart Security. Sorli...

    The costco where I bought mine was the same display, hidden under a glass case, but right next to it was the acer iconia, and it was not in case! So you could touch and play, while with the TP, all you could do was look at it and say hmm... next.

    prior to TP launch the Wal-Mart near my work removed all display tablets, they still have the spot for them and even the price tags, but everything is below where the displays would be behind locked glass. Did have a tag in front of the tps showing as advertised thr other day.
    I love physical keyboards... but there is two devices that would make me consider a slab, one is something running a full version of Open webOS. The other is an iPhone!!!! HA HA just kidding (about the iPhone that is)...
