Hi, I'm new here, just waiting and hoping that my HP order goes thru! I keep checking my e-mail and the order status on their website. I ordered 2 32GB ones. I wish I remembered where it was, but there was some post from HP that said it was honoring all the orders that were placed on their Small & Medium Business site, and that's where I placed my order Saturday evening.

So I looked all over online, and someone suggested the HP SMB section, so I waited thru several hours of error messages and finally got an order in and got a confirmation e-mail about an hour later.
For $150, I have another toy to play around with (even though I have no business spending any money right now!), and if nothing else, I have an e-reader/mp3/video/picture frame for a pretty good price....$100 less than my NookColor! The lack of apps for the TP is kind of a drag, though I haven't even really looked to see what's available. I'm just really looking forward to playing with a new OS, and learning about tweaking it, etc. I love forums....they've helped me with computers, my car...pretty much everything! And I'm hoping with the flood of new users, they'll all come to the forums and devs will keep up the app-making.
Just wanted to say hi, and I'm having fun already, even though I don't even have one yet!
