    Well guys, here it is straight from their mouths...

    After 3+ on hold I spoke to them. Here's the good news, when you get your tracking you will also get the confirmation that you paid $149 for the 32gb.

    Now for the bad news...

    She said they will be cancelling a HUGE amount of the orders placed for the 32gb version that they got over the weekend. I placed mine Saturday night and have pretty much came to the understanding that I don't have a chance in hell.

    Sorry, but I know a lot of you are probably on hold with bright eyes and bushy tails right now.

    Hm, did she say why? Seems strange that it's only happening to the 32gb models.

    Either way, thanks for the info!

    I'm betting that the 32gb version should have been pulled when the 16gb one was.

    I'm approaching 3.5 hours on hold now. Just cancelling accessory orders. The price has dropped locally, so once I finally cancel with HP, I'm heading to Staples! Wish I could modify the orders online! Geeeeeezzzzzz....LOL

    I called this afternoon - same exact story as the OP. Some orders from the weekend will be cancelled, and we should get emails by the end of the week either way. Hopefully Sat 11:00 am will make the cut

    On the bright side, I only waited 20 minutes on the phone before I got through.

    JUST arrived in my inbox:

    Mixed feelings - APPEARS that it will ship, but not for another 3 weeks...

    Also... how many will be shipped (if multiple devices in order)?
    Partial shipment, full shipment? Happy that I got the e-mail nonetheless.

    FYI, I put my order in at 6AM Saturday morning.

    Interesting...I actually have two orders outstanding...1 for the TP and 1 for accessories. I really wonder, then, which the email refers to (since it doesn't actually reference the order #). I'll hope for the best, I guess.
