    I signed up with 2 different emails, got only one notification. The one I didn't get though has a pending buy with HP, so it makes me wonder if that's why I didn't get the notification with that email account.

    Anyone know if the if the new orders will be for 16gb or 32gb or both? Will we be able to choose?

    Well, I finally got my email, yesterday evening. I read on the home page that HP is going to manufacture a bunch more Touchpads. It they too will sell for $99 (the 16GB), HP has to be at least breaking even on them. So how much profit were they making on those that sold for $399? Anyone else think this is weird?

    They're not breaking even. Odds are, selling them for a loss is less expensive than writing off all the parts, dealing with suppliers, etc.

    Signed up, never got an email. Spoke with someone at HP; they had no idea what I was talking about and transferred me to the store. The store line rang for several minutes and disconnected. Are there others who have not yet received their email?

    Went ahead and got the keyboard. Hope the purchase indicates my interest in purchasing another TouchPad.

    The keyboard I ordered on the 30th arrived today. It wasn't supposed to be here until the 7th per fed ex, but I got a nice surprise. I didn't even know they delivered on Saturday. This is MUCH better than typing on the touchpad, even tho it still has a really small foot print.

    For those just getting one: The battery cover has hooks in it. Slide it over to the left and lift off. This may be a duh item for some, but it wasn't readily apparent to me.

    The delete key isn't a delete key, it's a backspace key, just like on the TP, and like on the TP if you hold shift, or on the keyboard shift or control and the delete key, it will take off the whole word instead of individual letters. The arrow keys do not let you scroll down with in a page, such as the forum, it only works with the cursor it seems in fields where you are entering text. The only other thing I noticed thus far is the card view button will go to card view or bring up launcher, but it doesn't zoom back in, so it doesn't really minimize the amount of touching you have to do. For 42 bucks, it's not bad, has a good feel to it. The keys work as stated in the brochure but I'd really like a zoom option for the cards and a true delete key that deletes to the right of the cursor and not to the left like a back space key would. As it is I can just use the arrow key to get to where I want and then use the delete key to backspace.

    I got mine today as well. Much nicer than typing on the touchscreen. As you said, it doesn't really do as much to minimize touching as I'd like. I wish I could page up and down, swipe cards, and so on. I thought maybe control+ combinations might do something (no dice), maybe this could be something added on in an update or something.

    I don't think I'd have been satisfied with it had I paid full price, but is great for what I paid.

    Bonus is being able to shift + arrow key to highlight text.

    does getting the email mean anything at all in regards to having a shot at getting an TP from HP when they get them back in stock. Or did you have to be one of the people who were denied one by HP going out of stock after you placed a previous order from them.

    It means you are on their list to be notified when it becomes available. I'm hoping they offer unique codes like the did in in this email or give the email recipients a specific amount of time to respond before selling to the general public, so posting on public sites doesn't cause the frenzy it did before.

    In a world of droid, Pre does it better.

    Shouldn't we treat this world like the Garden of Eden and avoid the apple at all costs?
