    I grabbed mine at a staples. Walked in, grabbed one, walked out. No crazy line or crazy rush - I was the only one standing there at 9:00 AM thismorning.

    Probably all gone by now, every employee there was talking about it during my brief visit, I imagine they either bought them or held them aside for friends/family.

    But then again, I can't see a company axing a product after 47 days. Wait, what??

    The problem is they are marking them up much more than that.

    I called around my town and they are all out of stock. What I don't get is how webos is supposedly not well know, but as soon as a big sale comes on they are all out of stock within hours.

    most people bought in hopes of an android port & higher resale value.
    I wish Hp & retailers put a thought & gave out 1 per customer.

    I saw this:
    HP TouchPad Tablet | HP Official(R) Site

    And it says $149 and at the very bottom it says:

    ** Offer valid on 16GB and 32GB HP TouchPad until September 8, 2011. Instant rebate will be applied online / in store at the time of purchase. Availability may vary by retailer, see retailer for details.

    So I went ahead and paid for it but it says it's charged me the $499 price for it. Will HP discount me? Their support line isn't open until monday and I'm horrified. What do I do!

    Or at least limited to 2 and let us devs get a chance to get one considering we can contribute! We had no more of a notice then anyone else, he'll the hp rep I talked to said they didn't even get any benefits and he wanted one too but couldn't get one! HP is not showing they care at all

    I think giving devs more priority would have been nice too. But either way I am sure some devs would have abused the process (no offence but we know most pre 2 were sold like that).

    I hope Hp get more stock :-)

Got another one at staples around 9 (32gb) model but had to pay full price bc they didn't know anything about pricedrop..will return if they don,t drop price or match if they do. Also ordered a 32gb model from hp directly around 1am and will also have to get a refund from them as they wanted full price until price drop @ 7am and they were selling ever last one. On phone with hp they sold out of 16gb models so i bumped up to the 32gb. Merry christmas to all my relatives.

    It has been crazy night...think it's time for a nap! Hope everyone had fun! Btw...every walmart sold out of inventory by 8am up here in ct.
    **** you, you greety mother****er.

    Staples in Port Richey Fl had one and the Spring Hill one had 4 as of 2pm when I got the last one in the Port Richey location.

    Ours said part of the reason they have them is that they weren't authorized to sell them at the new prices until around noon. Not that they would admit it but the other reason they had them is that Staples isn't even 1/4 as popular as other office supply stores around here, if its like that near you then Staples might still have a few.

    Now I just hope the Pre3 does get released and for VZW.

    Hope this helps someone.

    Lucky you. The PC Richards stores in NYC sold out in less than an hour. They opened at 9:00, I got there at 10:00, there were long gone. He told me they had a huge line waiting when they opened the store. I called the other PC Richards throughout Manhattan & Brooklyn, and they were all gone. Less than an hour after they opened.

    I'm a little bummed, but I'll get one somehow.

    ebay prices will be really cheap so I don't think anyone will have a problem getting one. people bought a bunch and will only get anywhere from $20-100 more than the price they purchased it for. I'm sure it will be pretty commonplace to get them for $199 or less for quite awhile.

    I may have a solution for some of you that weren't able to get a TP today, but you have to have a wal-mart near you that has them still full price. I got mine today by calling Wal-Mart and making sure they have them in stock (full price), then calling another Wal-Mart that was sold out by honoring the fire sale price and having them call the Wal-Mart with TPS in stock and walk them thru marking the price down. It worked great for me and there was still 6 32gbs left on the shelf after mine, although someone called about it as I was checking out. You may be able to still get lucky if you have some in stock for full price around you. I got mine from Roanoke, Al Wal-Mart. Good luck.

    I also have a felling HP will be selling more once all the best buy shipments return, although they have said they aren't getting more. I have not heard or read about this anywhere, its just my personal opinion.

    Not really. They are having a problem with PayPal making the payments so it looks like they just halted it for a while ...
