Dear valued HP Shopping customer,
Thank you for purchasing an HP TouchPad. We have been working to meet the overwhelming demand and are pleased to inform you that you will be receiving your TouchPad soon.
Orders will be filled in priority based on your day and time of purchase:
· 16GB model will begin to ship the week of September 5, 2011

If you purchased a TouchPad at the original price ($399.99 for 16GB and $499.99 for 32GB), your credit card payment will be adjusted to reflect the new price ($99.99 for 16GB and $149.99 for 32GB). Further, if you have decided to cancel your order, please respond to this message by Friday, August 26.
Thank you for being a valued HPShopping.ca customer and for your patience as we process your order.
Enjoy your TouchPad!
Mixed feelings - APPEARS that it will ship, but not for another 3 weeks...
