Newegg had them earlier today, sold out within minutes. They're working on getting more.

Just got an email telling me that my Touchpad has been shipped. Hopefully it will be arriving on the 27th! Sometimes I wish I didn't live on the west coast...

I've got to hand it to OnSale; they made a reasonable attempt to make it up to everyone who had an order cancelled the first time around. Waiting a week for a freaking cancellation email was certainly frustrating, but the 32 GB Touchpad I'm typing from goes a long way in helping me forget. :p

Just got my Touchpad in the mail. I'm liking what I see so far! Just signed up for Box.net. Doesn't hurt to have 50GB of cloud storage space to go along with the 32GB internal memory. I'm probably going to install some patches tomorrow.

Can recommend Advance Browser from the App catalog, for tabbed browsing. I think the Box.net offer has an upload file size limit btw.

I'm writing to you now from my new 32gb touchpad :)
Welcome to the 32GB Touchpad club :) I recommend playing around with it stock for one day. After day one, install the recommend patches and mandatory OC kernel and you'll love the difference that it makes. It won't be as fast as an iPad, but WebOS looks and feels fantastic! Its a shame HP never got it right to begin with. In stock form, there would be no way that I would pay retail for this tablet.

I got an email from Amazon Germany today offering me, amongst other things, a TouchPad for 399?. Great sales pitch, guys :wave:
