    Glad to see HP decided to reserve some of the TouchPads for developers, though at this point, I'd imagine most devs have gotten a TouchPad by now.

    So would my webos dev user ID and devoloper ID be the same? My registration page doesn't have an "ID" number on it. Such a noob

    that is what I sent. I just sent it from the email address registered to my dev account and they can normally make the connection. Atleast in the past I never sent my dev Id.

    you devs better hurry up if you want one. i just saw there is a post on slickdeals about it, along with how to provide fraudulent information in order to get one. safe to say that many over at that forum are not developers and have no intention of supporting webos in any manner, but i suspect that wont stop most from trying to get one anyway.

    They should have had this from the start, not 3 months after they decide to kill production.
    Due to the cancellation of the penny, I no longer give 2 about anything. I may however, give a nickel

    If this was a month ago I would have signed up and bought two. Now though, I wouldn't give HP another cent of my money.

    This blogger is of the opinion that charging even fire sale prices for dev Touchpads is a slap in the face. They say if HP was serious about webOS, they should be giving them out for free.

    Alas, the point is moot.
    HP has already run out of developer Touchpads.

    To my knowledge, HP has always asked developers to pay some money for their devices. But the developer program does not charge an admission fee.

    I read Kendrick's blog. It seems to me he is using this as a hook to tell HP to either formally support webOS or cut it loose. This would be consistent with his recent blog posts.
    I am sympathetic to his cause and I too wish HP would make a public announcement about webOS. It may be that they are finishing a deal transaction to sell webOS or alternatively, finishing a business case analysis for a new HP direction for webOS. So I am prepared to wait for a few weeks.

    In the meantime, my device works fabulously thanks to all the paid and unpaid-devs and HP's recent webOS update to 3.04.

    I'm not sure if that's the right strategy for a marginal platform - I guess it keeps the kooks and freeloaders away but if you look at Nokia giving out 75,000 devices to developers, store reps and others who might push WP7 that seems one way of trying to attract some interest.

    I was able to get a Pre 2 for free during a promotion they had, and they've had device loaner programs, but nothing like what MS is doing.

    Again, the question is moot. There are no more Touchpads available.

    Well technically there are no more coupon codes available. Hopefully the real devs who applied will get them, and not the slickdeals people

    I feel sorry for Chuq and his crew.
    He mentioned before about trying to grab hardware for the developers, but it appears he didn't get much corporate support.
    Now that everything feels dead (even if it might not be (yeah, marginal optimism)) he FINALLY gets his hands on some and has to go through the process of figuring out who the real developers are.
    I do not envy them.

    What did they tell people to do over at slickdeals. I guess I missed that. I presume it was something like go to dev page, open a forum topic, steal name, and then email that name. Simple solution for Chuq is to PM those devs about the coupons and NOT email them.

    They were just telling people how to create a dev account to apply for the coupon with.
