    Ordered on the 21st...ordered date 22nd...and date requested 23rd...***?!

    I might just call to see if I received this email in error.....with the hope that the rep will say "oh, you're right...ok, we'll go ahead and ship it out to you ASAP"

    You will not believe the size of the tents. HUGE. Try different beers. You'll have to go to different tents. The people are wild. I've never been around that many HAPPY drunk people. I can't remember any fights. You'd never get away with that here. Litre sized beer mugs...OMG!!!

    EDIT: Man...I'm really jealous now.

    I saw the UPS truck coming up my street. It stopped right accross from me....my heart started to pound in my chest....I waived at the delivery guy.....he went into the back of the truck to get the package....went to the house across the street.....came out, got in the diver's seat and kept on going.

    Ah well. Cheap excitement for a minute or two.

    hehehe I always feel a little dorky and a little embarrassed when I go out to greet the UPS/FedEx guy when I'm expecting a package, but I know exactly how you may feel.

    ***UPDATE***

    Finally broke down and called HP at 888-728-9985 and after I told him that I ordered the TP on the 23rd and received the cancellation email BUT did receive a confirmation email 8 hours later, he said that I would have a 20% chance that it would go through. My shipment date is today with a delivery date of the 2nd. So it doesn't show canceled on the order status so I might still get it. He said there there were some people that did receive the TP's already and they ordered them on the 22nd. "Stranger things have happened"

    I just called to ask about the new pending charge on my c/c. It's just another soft hold put on the card to make sure there is enough money in your bank account. It doesn't mean my TP is shipping anytime soon. This hold could possibly fall off my c/c account and a new hold could be placed later on. Basically, it sounds like we just have to wait around until we finally get shipping notification emails before we get excited about anything.

    Argh. I'm going to try as hard as I can to break free of this thread and stop looking at my order status obsessively.

    Wish me luck.

    Based on the logic we've seen so far, if you've got a 20% chance for an order on the 23rd, then I must have a -234234234234% chance for my order on the 21st.

    Just gave a ring. He said as long as it was placed before the 4am cutoff time I would get mine in a few weeks. I asked is that the case even though my confirmation and both order status screens have different dates and times? He said dont worrie about that your good.

    Grain of salt!

    Well. Something weird happened with my bank account.

    I ordered a 32gb sunday the 21st around noon. Order 4423XXX. I received 3 different emails from HP.
    A purchase confirmation, and order confirmation, and now today a important update email (saying it will be delayed a few weeks).

    All this time there had been a pending charge on my account from HP for $162.
    Now I look at my account and the pending charge is gone...
    So are they gonna bill me later or something? Im a bit confused by this.
    Ordered 32GB TouchPad on 8/21/11@1pm HPO#30579xxx, WO#4423xxx

    I'll bet these CS reps have been told, "just tell them whatever you feel like at the moment-We don't have a clue what's going on!" I'll bet this whole HP Touchpad pooch screw goes down as one on the biggest boners of 2011.

    I just called HP. Given my order on Saturday night I look good. He said an email will be going out on all orders tomorrow.

    They should be getting 25k units in. If your order is high enough on the totem pole you will get one of those. If not, you will have to wait 6 to 8 weeks until they get the remainder of the units from Asia.

    Good for some, bad news for most, I suspect.

    ugh....so my friend just showed me that her TP order (which was placed on the 24th) was just updated with a ship date of 9/5 and a delivery date of 9/8.

    My order, placed on the 20th? no updates...

    Actually these are the most positive response for CSRs I've heard yet. From this it sounds as though even if they run out of their initial stock, those of us with orders before the cutoff will get ours from the "additional production". If my order doesn't get fulfill out of the current stock, that'll blow, but I'd rather have to wait a few weeks verse getting all and all cancelled. Hey, the deal is still awesome even if I have to wait a little longer.
