    That's the thing though, I don't think they can afford to "milk it." They need people to buy the touchpad.

    However, considering if HDMI out is part of the dock, that will probably push up its utility enough to rationalize charging extra for it so who knows.

    In regard to the micro usb to hdmi cable, is that even a possibility? I would have assumed that the micro usb doesn't have the throughput to do video out at 720 or 1080...

    At the SF event I got the impression they were including the dock.

    Also, why is there no 16 GB 3g version?
    Good question. I don't need 32 Gig (besides the price issue) and I think a 16 Gig 3G version for 599 would fit perfectly.

    HP, like many other manufacturers has historically used Qualcomm parts. It appears that Qualcomm's production will not be impacted by the earthquake:

    Qualcomm Rises On Insulation From Japan‎ - Forbes
    "Qualcomm shares are rising today after the company said that based on a review of its extended semiconductor supply chain, it does not foresee an impact in its ability to supply products to its customers due to the events in Japan...."

    Bloomberg goes beyond and makes statement about others:

    At this time we do not know of any impact the earthquake has had on the release of the TouchPad, Veer, or Pre 3.

    Our hearts go out to the people of Japan. They should be of greater concern than parts for our phones and computers.
