I think they might have a whole bunch coming from the factories that were both completed and needed additional assembly.
The wait is keeping HP in the news and also when they get your email address from the TP notify list they will use it to sell you something else.
Example , email I got tonight
Thank you for contacting the HP Home & Home Office Store.
We are very sorry that we were not able to reply to your email earlier. We have some bulk of emails to attend to. Please be assured that we are doing our best to answer all emails from our valued customers, and that includes you, Walt.
I am pleased to know that you are interested in the HP TouchPad.
We are currently out of stock on the TouchPad. We have received a notification that we should get some more in stock within this week.
We do not know how many will come into inventory; however, I can sign you up for an email notification as to when stock has been replenished. The stocks will then be available in a first come, first served basis. Would you like for me to add you to our list? I just need your e-mail address, and the model you are interested in.
Do not worry, xxxx. I filled out the necessary form so you will be sent the notification when the TouchPad will be available.
This is just a notification process, units will be available on a first come, first serve basis. They will be limited one per customer/household. We do not know how many units we will be receiving, and we do not know when the units will be arriving. We have a TouchPad FAQ page now on our site where you can also check for more information at HP® Official Store —Buy HP Laptops, Notebook PCs, Printers, Desktop Computers, Handhelds, Scanners, Monitors, and Calculators direct from HP
How would you like to have a regular notebook PC, instead?
I recommend you consider the HP Pavilion dm4-2050us Notebook PC. Love it, show it off, take it everywhere. Good looks and great performance team up with a built-in fingerprint reader in our Pavilion dm4-2050us. You also get a hi-definition webcam with dual-array digital microphones for keeping you in touch, plus plenty of ports-including HDMI-for staying connected and entertained.
We have it in stock today. You may place your order online, or you may directly call our Sales Center at the number below to place your order. Please view this PC in the link:
