    Oh oh, me too. Just when I thought I had one, looks like they have messed up, too many orders, too little stock???

    Different story with Misco. The price never changed.
    Cheers for getting back,
    I can't believe I missed it, I was checking that every 2 mins with one in my basket,
    did a refresh and it just failed

    Oh well, The hunt continues! haha

    I;ve had some miserable luck in the last day or two - I could only get so far with Dixons/Currys/PCWorld and I *almost* got an order on Staples before it died and failed.

    I did manage to successfully order a 16GB on Comet at the original price, but when I phoned up this morning to confirm they'd honour the price reduction, they said absolutely Not!

    needless to say I cancelled immediately.

    However, I just spoke to Expansys to confirm their status (after 5 mins of ringing) and the lady said that would be updating their prices most likely TOMORROW evening. I also asked that if I ordered now, whether I would receive the discounted price and she confirmed yes.

    So I have ordered a couple (got confirmation email) and fingers cross that expanses, unlike comet will honour the reduction.

    IF not, then obviously Expansys will have an addition two TP's to their stock by COB tomorrow!

    Thanks and all the best

    I bought 2 at Comet at full price yesterday morning and they refunded the difference today no problems...

    You should have been persistent because the in-store price today is the same as the web price, i bet the staff member you spoke to took it! .... they have the price promise too!

    Precisely. It perfectly sums up their attitude towards developers and the future of webOS. Would it really have killed HP to give their developers a chance to get in on the action prior to this fire sale? I certainly saw nothing coming from HP. They have just thrown their developers in with everyone else.

    I got a cancellation email from Staples. After trying to find a TouchPad for the past few days, I was finally happy that my order got in. Of course they had to mess it up

    If anyone gets a spare Touchpad and wants to sell it, please PM me. I'd gladly pay £90 or £105 for one.

    might be out of the topic. Got my price difference refund from pcworld just now (was a day 1 buyer :-)). The process was painless! :-)

    oh. Also found out they won't be supplying any more touchpad for those who really wanted it after talking with the rep. :-( they are out of stock and won't be supplying anymore or so the rep said.

    Gave up utterly on bashing F5 yesterday so called direct to my local Comet and had them tuck one under a shelf for me which they were all too happy to do.

    Once I'd picked it up this morning I decided to grab another for my wife / niece and on a hunch shot around to Staples. Damn good hunch. They had a pile in, no queue and even better sold me a Touchstone and cases for 50% off

    Received email confirmation (I sent email yesterday) from PLAY.COM that they will NOT be reducing prices for TouchPads that they have in stock.
    My published and impending WebOS apps -

    its like the fools suddenly think they can sell fullprice as if the customer base "woke up" and started buying touchpads because they want to, their only selling coz their on sale, doesnt take a genious to work it out, if a load of shops keep hold and sell full price their simply not gonna sell them, esp as the bulk of orders are the people ordering now in the hope of a lower price later on.

    shooting themselves in the foot and we have this exact joke to re-occur with the pre3 soon(tm).

    It will be interesting to see what happens with accessories for the TouchPad. The Euro Palm store are planning to sell a Pre 3 + accessory bundle. I am surprised retailers did not try similar with the TouchPad in order to clear their entire inventories. Hopefully some put a bundle or two together or reduce the price. The temptation must be there to keep the prices high in order to make some money from the TouchPad fiasco but if they keep the prices high they will simply have lots of stock sitting around.
