    read a fair few random posts on some social websites where customers have had reserved stock, gone to collect, then told after their sold otu and there was a "mistake" and their out of luck.

    One such post even said they went into PC world and heard employees talking among themselves, the TPads situation was the main subject, she heard they had stock on their site there yet when she went to get one at the desk she was flatout told they had none in stock.

    Unknown how much truth but if you do some pro googling youll see a fair few stories so far appearing of store employyes allegedly cancelling orders and taking them for themselves.

    rumour mill/chineese whispers/truth/lies? who knows but the heated topic that is the Touchpad is brancing out into new unexpected directions.

    im starting to sit back, read some of these thigns and think "*** happend to get to thsi stage, the touchpad hasnt even been out 2 months and everything has gone crazy".

    madness.

    Ok, will watch for price drop then! I don't mind a spare (already bought 1 from HP full price - wonder if they will refund me difference). Happy to do that deal you mentioned! though I will probably get stung by custom duty

    I got two 32GB TPs for 115 each from Comet.co.uk at about 8pm tonight (GMT).
    The website kept crashing over and over. I'd get to the final 'place order' page and it'd 404 on me. I phoned the customer service line to be told that they couldn't take my order because their entire order system had crashed due to overwhelming orders.
    The website came back to life just long enough for me to complete my order and get my confirmation email! Woot! Bring on Wednesday delivery!

    I suspect a minority of these cases happen ie dishonest staff keeping some for themselves, hoping to make a quick buck. Wish I could convince people NOT to buy any inflated price ones on Ebay to teach these people a lesson but alas, it will still happen. Those affected should write a detailed letter/email to that store manager and some MAY investigate and who knows?

    I got a call (voicemail) from Hemel Comet at 7:40pm saying that although I placed my reservation at 12:45pm they didn't have any left "just to let you know"... bet he was glad it went to voice mail and not to me... Think I will complain to customer services tomorrow to see if I can get anything out of them.

    Lucky for me I got one on the website anyway before I got the message, it had better actually arrive now though!

    I would demand to speak to the manager for full explanation and suggest unscrupulous behaviour in the 7hours wait to inform you of a lack of stock when already bought!

    Agreed! Hope those of us lucky enough to buy extra TouchPads will sell them at cost to other loyal fans and developers!

    The title of that link says $75 so that'd be 45?

    I really want one a Pre 3 for 45 anyway! I managed to buy a 16GB Touchpad from the US for $90.60. My friend will ship it over, hopefully shipping is cheap!

    agreed, still a shocking read tho, even for a minority occurance.

    as weve seen, chances are the whole bulk to resell thing will probably occur then, same as it is right now for the touchpad.

    If anyone has ordered an extra touchpad and is willing to sell it, pm me. I have been trying since 7 0 clock and got nothing, absolutely gutted.

    Looks like it paid off in the end.
