You might have just made the mistake of tipping your poker hand in front of HP/Palm and that's what really caused you to lose this game. I say that because I myself am an "Early Early adopter", 6/30/2011 at 7:30PM PST, as stamped on my BB receipt that I photocopied unaltered and sent in with the other requirements to HP to get in on the $50 rebate check for first adopters promotion.
True, I have not received my $50 check yet, but its only been two weeks and they said it would take six to eight weeks.
What I as an "early early adopter" have received as of this morning, is my promo code good for $50 of application purchases. I've tried it out, made an app store purchase and it works.
Hate to say this, but it applies to your situation - "Patience is a virtue"
Life is not all about predicting doom and gloom for everyone either. Nope, not gloomy around here. I'm going to stop writing now and play "Need for Speed, Hot Pursuit" on my TP, gratis. Thanks HP
