Those of you who REALLY want 1 and live near a Best Buy, check the tracker(first post) around midnight and get there ASAP!!! 5am or earlier if you live in a bigger town! EARLIER the BETTER!!!!! Bring a chair, food, books, portable games, drinks! Careful with the drinks unless you bring someone with you and you can take turns going to a nearby bathroom!

Don't forget the wind shelter if you're in one of the states that're going to be pounded by Hurricane Irene over the next couple of days.;)

And who says you can't just use the leftover bottle from your drink as your toilet. Just don't forget you used it as such and go to take a drink out of there.;)

Interesting. I'll definitely have to check that out then.

There's a two pack of screen protectors being sold by Amazon for $8.82 or so. It's under the Spare Parts brand.

http://www.amazon.co...3&condition=new

There's also a single pack one that's available as of Sept. 5th that's only $4.99(with $2.85 shipping:-#), so for another $1 n change you can get the two pack from Amazon(with free shipping if you have Prime).

Here's the single pack for $4.99 w/ $2.85 shipping: http://www.amazon.co...14494596&sr=1-1

No reviews kinda scares me! I might order one though.... tough call!

I'm done with looking at Best Buy. The chance of getting a Touchpad at my local BB is the chance of Texas legalizing gay marriage with Rick Perry as the governor - some seriously crazy events would have to take place in order for it to happen.

I highly recommend the touchstone. The fact that I now have a digital photo frame as well is pretty sweet.

You turn it off and put it on the touchpad and the clock comes automatically. To get it to be pictures do you just have to run the app and place it on it or is there something else?

The 16gb is almost selling for under $200 on ebay now. Maybe this time next week they will be at $150 for anyone who has struck out completely. If I can't score another on from HP I will bite. These are better than i thought and both my boys will love them.

I got my 32Gb today from HP.com. My datavis order will surely be delayed. Well my question is does this have a camera app? to take pictures? I've been playing with this stuff and i cant find it.

I know that B&M Wal-Mart stores will not be getting more because the item has been deleted from all of the store distribution centers. It is possible that they may get more for .com but I really couldn't say for sure.

Pending charges stay on the account for 3 buisness days and then disappear until it is fully charged. That's normal. Don't freak out too much about it

Hi everyone, I saw on google that a Bestbuy near me has limited stock. However, the Bestbuy Inventory says unavailable. Does anyone know which one is more accurate?

I can only tell you what I know from past experience. I had a similar experience and called Best Buy to check inventory, and they indeed had none and said sometimes it'll take a while for the system to update. Sorry, but chances are your best buy is out. :(

I would say the BB inventory. Like someone said before I think they are through shipping to stores or at least BB is through.

How do you get below 1? Wow. They look like a new outfit and before this week, had a respectable rating and in one ill-considered move, blew themselves up on a single product. Harsh.

Q: If they had notified people within 24 hours that they were OOS instead of waiting three days and not having a clear statement of how they were handling things, would everyone be howling for their scalps and wiping their reputation out?


Hell, they never even took the time to send a from-letter e-mail out - all I got was the cancellation notice from Amazon.

The stock tracker in the OP is correct. You have to get there EARLY if you live in a bigger/more popular city. Like before 5am. I posted some tips, 5 pages or less back.

So someone just posted this on CL in my area:

"Signed up for Hp notifiction on hp website. Got email confirmation today. They will be selling them this week online via their wbsite. Also shipments start going out tomorrow to local retailers. Arrivals expected Tuesday. Don't overpay. There are still tons of these left. Hate to see people takin advantage of."

Anyone else get confirmation of anything? I tried to input my address several times into the form when it first went live and never had it go through.

Or is this person just trying to screw over the resellers?
