So it seems like early buyers in the rest of the world are left in the cold again. No 50 USD promo coupon, and now the prices are lowered everywhere.

I bought a Touchpad for EUR 580 on 6. July from the German HP store. Obviously now I'm not happy about this development.

Has anyone in Germany heard from HP? What about rest of Europe? Will there be any refunds in Germany? Likely or unlikely?

If all else fails, will it help to contact the Verbraucherzentrale?

Thanks for any thoughts on this. Let's hope that HP in Europe cares at least a little bit about their customers.
