I am in the 6-8 weeks group, and I will hang in there, but for those who missed out, I have a feeling that they will get their TPs at about the same time as us, and for only a little bit more. Here is the timeline as I see it:

Then, a few weeks later, we will start getting our TPs. That will be a huge increase in supply that is out there in the market and a lot of them will hit eBay at that point. I think we are looking at $150 or less for Touchpads by the time we get our Touchpads. Maybe as low as $125, if there are people who ordered 20 who are worried about getting stuck with them as Black Friday approaches, and $250 Galaxy Tabs loom on the horizon.
So, in my opinion, those who missed out on the fun that weekend will nonetheless be able to get a Touchpad for only a little more than we paid. I could be wrong, if demand holds strong, it might stay above $200. But if I was doing an over/under, I'd take $140.
