Since everyone is asking for people to get them one when they can't find one on their own, let's try to keep the requests to this thread here:

HP.com states that they are trying to fulfill orders and may have leftover stock

Also, more information on orders placed through HP.com
As of the 23th, your best bet is HP restocking if you dont have a pad.

There is also Newegg but we may have to see.

Dear webOS developer:

We have opened the next chapter for webOS, and we understand that you must have many questions. Yesterday we announced that we will focus on the future of webOS as a software platform but we will no longer be producing webOS devices. While this was a difficult decision, it's one that will strengthen our ability to focus on further innovating with webOS as we forge our path forward. Throughout this journey, our developers will continue to be a vital part of the future of webOS.

We will continue to support, innovate and develop the webOS App Catalog. Our intent is to enhance our merchandising and presentation of your great products and to continue to build our webOS app ecosystem.

As many of you are aware, we are currently scheduled to hold many developer events around the world. We are planning to continue with these events, however, due to the recent announcements; the nature of them will change. These updates will be posted on our events registration site this coming week. We are eager to present to you the updated strategy for webOS and to hear your feedback.

Lastly, I wish to express our sincere appreciation for your ongoing support for webOS and the many teams responsible for it here at HP. This is a particularly dynamic time in the mobile industry and sometimes tough decisions need to be made about not only what to do, but also what not to do. This has been one of those times. Together with our great webOS developer community, we are confident that we will meet the challenges ahead and build momentum for optimal success.

We will be communicating with you frequently over the next few weeks and we look forward to hearing from you throughout this process.

Thanks for your support

Richard Kerris
VP webOS Developer Relations

It may be a futile, doomed effort, but they aren't killing and totally orphaning the Touchpad. Yeah, it's going to be limited, but it's ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS! A 9.7" tablet with Gorilla Glass screen for a C-note. Hell, I'm gonna get one just cuz! There's a Kindle app, so BAM!!! $100 eReader!

Technically not the right forum, but I don't care, because THAT IS FUCKING MONEY.

I was thinking about getting it at freaking 399. 99 for a tablet? With my absolute favorite OS? DONE DEAL

I already bought it through HP's HP Academy program. Use coupon code SAVE15HP for the 16GB version. Total came to just over $90 after the coupon including NJ Tax.

Believe you can also use the Employee Purchase program to get the discount right now as well in addition to HPA. There's a $30 code for the 32GB version but I don't know what it is

Still regular price at BB USA. I was wondering what was going to happen to the reported quarter-million tablets Beast Buy was enraged at HP over and wanted them to take back. When they killed webOS devices, I wondered if there'd be a fire sale on them and here we go. I'll get one for a C-note to play with, even though it's an orphan. I had a Pre and it's a crying shame that Palm, then HP, managed to take such a slick OS and let it starve in its crib. I could junk punch a long line of suits who fucked webOS up and over.

edit: oh wait, I see whats going on here, and forgot it was webOS, this is pretty crazy..

basic functions for browsing and email, video etc is very nice. Hell at the $149 or $99 I couldn't pass it up, just to have it sit around the house in a living room is nice.

Forgive me if this is a dumb question, would this thing work as a decent e-reader if nothing else?

Web OS is going to be dead, hopefully android can be ported on it. At that low of a price it probably will grab some developers attention and for fun port it over.

Couple of things...

First, great deal. Do you know when this is happening?

Second, an FYI...HP likely won't support them any more because they're dropping the OS, and the app store will likely shut down soon too, so if that doesn't bother you (which it doesn't bother me) then buy away!
I LOVE INDIE GAMES!

I SUPPORT THEM WHOLEHEARTEDLY.

Its because HP is discontinuing all Web OS products because It failed to compete with other tablets
