    I just read through the whole communication that HP sent my company's CEO this evening. At the bottom of the announcements on prices, price protection etc, it said:

    " **64GB is no longer available. Please remove it from any websites"

    Straight from the source.

    Nope. We're a regional VAR that primarily integrates HP's Enterprise solutions, as well as selling desktops etc. We get all HP PSG communications.

    I'll believe you.

    64GB of NAND isn't cheap, folks, and I doubt that they would be stupid enough to sell it for $200. They're already losing money on every TP as it is.

    On the other hand, what's the price of leaving a couple in a warehouse somewhere for a few years? That's what happened with the Folio, anyways, so I guess it wasn't a huge deal.

    Scan it or take a pic.... No big deal right?

    Yes, big deal. These communications, as stated, are for Partner Information Purposes and are not to be distributed. Relaying the info - which is or will be public knowledge shortly - is one thing. Distributing a document that HP says is not for distribution is another thing. People have been fired for less.

    Any other news? More inventory of TP or phones?

    For Canada at least, Inventory of TP's are stated as being "limited". No mention of phones as that's not part of the same marketing channel as the TP.

    So we need to forget about TouchPad 4G too?.... sigh .. no Pre 3 for US, now no TouchPad 4G too.....

    @akshunj grow up. The first request was reasonable, second not, and third just stupid.
    PalmV - Kyo 6035 - 7135 - 650 - 700wx - pre+clocked - pre+2.1 mod - and no Pre3 time to get a Pre2?

    June 19 - 8:45am - early order Touchpad. Love it! Used fire sale refund to get another. Rest paid for all accessories. Trying to teach the wife to love it.

    support WebOs internals!

    fyi, I ordered a 64gb white touchpad today, and posted the details & screenshot of my confirmed order in the other thread in this forum. My guess is they aren't shipping anymore and may not bring more states side but I'm guessing preferred retailers and select vendors got some inventory before the rest of the 3rd party resellers and that is a notice to them that they won't be available any longer for anyone requesting since they prob have a better profit margin on these, so HP would likely want to sell any directly to keep those margins?
