HP 16 GB TouchPad for $99!!

Yes you read that right, HP has decided to cancel production of their HP Touchpad mostly to move to another operating system.  This means that they are selling off all their current Touchpads for basically 1/4 of the original price!

You can get:

16 GB Touchpad with WiFi for $99

32 GB Touchpad with WiFi for $149

They are already sold out online, but this is going to be the price at all retailers, so check Best Buy, Amazon, Staples etc. both online and in stores around.

What does this mean on the technical side?
They are stating that they will still support existing WebOS devices so you should be able to still get current apps for it and tech support.  You will probably find that no new apps are made though or software updates

My take (and my computer engineer husbands take) if you are wanting a tablet device for note taking, calendar, or internet browsing then jump on this now!  It’s an awesome price and has all the main functionality you will ever want.  Plus it at least has the Kindle app…

You can also watch a recent video comparing the Touchpad vs. iPad.

    • Tracycook79

      I am confused….when i go to the store sites, they still say 399 (or whatever else that is not 99)

    • csmith

      They are 389.99 on amazon still for the 16 gb

    • Tthimlar

      The price is NOT $99 anywhere other than HP’s website……..I’ve looked at all of the above.

    • SuzQ

      My Staples has these for $399 and $499.  ??

    • Darlynnmoore

      When are they gonna start this? The prices on line are still the same, not the sale price yet?

    • Darlynnmoore

      When are they gonna start this? The prices on line are still the same, not the sale price yet?

    • Ladybug96713

      I just checked Best Buy on-line and it wasn’t showing that price.

    • Go8fan

      it’s not showing the same prices at the other retailer stores ?

      • Go8fan

        Just spoke with Best Buy this item will not be sold on line for 99.00 and she could not even confirm in stores for it to be sold at the same price

        • Syren026

          Yep Husband went there this morning and Best Buy in Buford GA told him that it is a discontinued item and they are shipping all back to HP and not selling any of them for the lowered price.

    • Kkfreidman

      Thanks for sharing but no one is offering it for that price!

    • Daniellek1986

      I’ve checked all the retailers online but it’s still showing full price. I’m going to check with the retailers here in Columbia SC once they open so hopefully I’ll get lucky!

      • Roabr97

        Please let us know.  I will be in Columbia tomorrow.  Thanks!

    • LoriC1

      I checked the prices on Amazon & Staples and it is still showing 399/499.  When will they change their prices?  Thanks for the info!

    • Dawnmphillips

      I can’t find it for that price listed anywhere

    • Danelle West

      Hmm, very interested.  So what’s going to be the trick on locating one of thse at this price? 

    • SuzQ

      Will any of the retailers match the HP.com price??

    • Josh

      It looks like HP was just selling them this low.  I doubt very seriously that the retailers are going to drop their prices down that low.  Sure would be neat though…I’d buy my wife one for her b’day this month.

    • SuzQ

      Will any of the retailers match the HP dot com price?  Most want a hard ad copy.  Any idea?

      • SuzQ

        Just answering my own question – no, for two reasons:  1) They are out of stock at HP.  2) They won’t match a website price.  Drat.

    • Blendastarch

      Sorry but Best Buy has them listed for $499 not $99. May want to check that info again.

    • Kim

      I was about to head out and get 3.. one for each of my kids for Christmas presents!  Would LOVE to know where to get one!

    • Mary H-B

      Went to Staples online, still shows old price so other retailers are not marking down

    • Mllmwed

      Looks like office depot has them for 129.99 but in stores only…..

    • Shellbabie

      They are listed at walmart.com for these prices, however are sold out online.

    • Kristyhymon

      I jst called office depot and there $129.00 for the 16gb bt they were sold ot.. Online prices havent changed.. and i called walmart theres are still 500.00…. im def gonna find me a 100. one today THANKS SOOO MCH

    • J_kwallace

      check your local walmart stores online they are sold out but mine has limited availability for the 32gb I think I’m headed that way :)

    • Folks are finding them at Wal-Mart for this price so go and check now if you want it!

    • I would be shocked if stores follow suit with the $99 deal considering they bought them from HP at a much higher price to begin with.  The stores don’t want to take that big of a loss. I’m sure the stores will eventually come down in price but just because HP says “lets get rid of these fast and practically give them away” doesn’t mean the stores have that same interest.  They are full prices everywhere EXCEPT HP online in which they are sold out.  I think you just sent people on a wild goose hunt in which the goose has already been cooked.

      • Yes – Wal-Mart online has the $99 price… good luck getting one though.

      • swirlypop

        This was the price at office depot but they were sold out.  I finally bought it at walmart. They are definitely on clearance.

    • kris

      walmart online says $99.  but store still says they are 499. will the store have to sell at online price??

      • Joanna21

        They do not match online prices…even their own.

    • Nemejia

      at walmart.com you have to set “your store” and then it will show “limitied availability” you can then select your store for in store pick up the same day. I just bought 2 at a walmart 45 min from my house

    • Call Walmart first- All the Walmarts I called that said limited availability had them but for $400-$500. Have yet to find ANYWHERE other than HP online, where they are sold out, at that price.

    • Patricia

      I ordered mine for pick up today at Walmart gives me the online price. I did have to go through several stores to find one though.

    • Josh

      I just called a local walmart here and was told $498, and they have not heard anything about them lowering the price at all.  

    • Janelleblozy

      Just called my walmart store and the guy told me someone was in there and bought all of them up!!!!!

    • Georgiagrits112

      Can’t find it anywhere online. If the price has been knocked down to $99 then they are sold out. Alot of the online retailers have NOT lowered their prices! :(

    • $149 on Staples.com

    • $149 on OfficeDepot’s website

      • Amandaasher25

        just checked it. it won’t let you buy for this price :-(

        • Couponnicki

          b/c they were told to send them all back

    • Srgordon

      I am going to look at Sams today the HP guy was there yesterday and I think he might have changed the prices because we had to change the display end cap

    • Cgholmes31

      I just purchased one for $99 via Walmart 30188 pickup in store, two minutes later my order was cancelled and now I have to wait on a refund:( 

    • Nonasimonsen

      My husband is a manager at Costco and they got an email from HP last night to remove all product and ship back to HP today. I wonder if other stores are pulling product in their stores too?

    • Amchad1118

      Just ordered one from Micro Center.com

    • SuzQ

      Just went to Wal*Mart, and there were at least 10 in the cabinet.  All regular price.  The sales associate said she had 5 behind the counter, waiting for the price to drop so she can buy them.  She said everyone has been calling today.  Talked to the manager about price matching, she said nope.  Wasted trip with no shower & 3 small kids in tow.  Boo.

      • mfra

        A employee holding merchandise is a terminatable offense. Hope her job is worth saving few hundred dollars…

        • SuzQ

          She said her mom was on stand-by to come in and buy them.  I didn’t know it was a terminatable expense.  But I suppose if her mom is the one buying, she can’t get in trouble.  If her manager sees them behind the counter, I suppose THAT could be a problem though.  I’m sure it happens ALL THE TIME with clearance items like this.

          • anonymos

            Actually yes she still could get in trouble and fired over that.  Never suppose to hold merchandise.  

          • Srgordon

            It is termination offense she has to sell them to first come first serve basis she can’t hide them for someone, I work at Sam’s Club and Policies are the same

      • Cinmiller04

        Can sales people do that? I wouldn’t think they could hoarde items for their own purchase.

        • mfra

          not at WM- it’s a terminatable offense. Hope her job is worth saving a few hundred dollars…

    • Cinmiller04

      Has anyone out there actually gotten this deal? It doesn’t look like anyone has. Makes me question whether if it’s too good to be true!

      • RM

        not to good to be true on the news yesterday they stated that HP was stopping the production of these because they just could not compete with the ipad and they were losing money. HP only has like IDK 450 apps where the ipad has like a jzillion.So they are being clearenced out.

      • Emily

        I did, but we had to go to two Walmarts. If A college freind of mine wasn’t working at the last one The person ahead of me and employies would have got them all! (there were like twenty in the case)

    • Couponmary

      I want one!!! LOL!! I tried to buy one at Walmart, but they said it wasnt avab for pick up

    • Kris

      i just talked to two office depot stores and they had just gotten the email overnight from hp telling them to clearance them and they are already sold out.

    • Patsouth

      I just called WalMart and they said they are $499 in the store and they’re sold out online :(

    • tnbluebird

      Got one on Walmart.com for in store pick up. Had to keep changing stores until I found one that would allow me to pick it up in store.

    • Debbie

      Amazon is not showing the $99 price?

    • BShea

      My Husband just purchased the 32GB from the Wal Mart in Anniston, AL for $149.

      • SuzQ

        Did he have to do anything special?  Were they listed for this price?

      • Nemejia

        ugh, I was on hold with them this morning (8am) and they told me that I had to purchase online for in store pick up (wouldn’t let me) so I ordered from a different walmart and they cancelled my order. I then called back to the Anniston Walmart and they told me they were sold out :(

        • Emily

          Yeah, the Walmart here in western NC were telling me the same thing – even though some of my stores showed it since in stock in the store – that you had to purchase it online to get the low price. However, all of my stores are showing “sold out online”. 

        • Tray_morrow

          yes, i had to as in store pick up and now they are cancelled. i ordered like 2 hours ago..wonder if employees took..

    • BShea

      My Husband just purchased the 32GB from the Wal Mart in Anniston, AL for $149.

    • Tray_morrow

      does anyone live near Kimball, Tn?

    • Smurfygrl1979

      Tried a few Wal-Marts in the Greenville Area. When I ask to speak with Electronics the main line said, “If you’re calling about the HP Touchpad, we are sold out” Sounds like they are getting bombarded with calls. I didn’t have any luck ;(

      • SuzQ

        Yeah, sold out by the employees.  Now I’m grumpy about that.

        • Couponnicki

          Why are you grumpy about that? They are people too. My husband just called from the store (not Wal-Mart) he works at to ask if he could buy one. I think the technology is old. A lot has already changed since they decided to stop making this type of stuff.

          • SuzQ

            If it’s against their store policy, then they shouldn’t be doing it.  There were 10 in the cabinet when I was there, and the sales lady had 5 behind the counter.  So there were 15 available, but not at the sale price.  Now the website says they are out of stock at my store.  NO ONE was in my store.  Maybe all of 5 people, and absolutely NO ONE in the electronics department.  So if they dropped the price and sold all 15, my guess is that they went to employee(s).  And that makes me grumpy.  They’re people, but if it’s against their policy, then they shouldn’t do that.  Buying one or two is different.  To buy them all up to sell on eBay or whatever, at a profit, when it’s a “terminatable offense”…..yeah….that makes me grumpy.

    • edistoshopper

      All local Wal-Marts in Charleston, SC are sold out. Staples will NOT be selling them as they are a discontinued item (Official Staples notice went out last night to pull them all off the shelves). Should would like to find out somewhere!!!

    • SarahWr21

      I just got the 32 gb at Walmart in Lexington, SC for $149, I feel sure they are sold out by now.  The manager was just hanging out by the case because he kept having to open it up. 

      • SuzQ

        OK, if some Walmarts are selling them at this price, why aren’t all of them????  Should I just go stand there with my dishonest sales lady and wait??????

    • pharmSCgirl

      Best buy no longer carries them. Bummer!

    • Manyfishes

      Walmart here in Fayetteville, NC were not making them down, still regular price. It’s great your Walmart is willing to make them down.

    • Kowen1024

      Best Buy pulled the HP’s this morning!!!!!  Refused to sell them.

    • Sandra

      Best Buy stated that they sent all theirs back to the manufacturer because of a defect.  THat would make me very leary of buying it even for $99 at the other retailers.

      • Lauren

        I would bet that they are using a “defect” as an excuse to get their money back from HP rather than lose a bunch by selling them in their stores at 80% off.

      • Tthimlar

        they just don’t want to sell it at the price HP has them for. The retailers are sending them back and HP will be selling them again when they receive them.

    • edistoshopper

      Staples, Office Max and Office Depot are all returning theirs to the manufacturer since they are “outdated” with the announcement. Maybe HP will be selling them on their site later???????

      • HanoverOMax

        An hour ago I just bought the last 2 in stock at OfficeMax in Hanover MA at full price.  Hoping I can “return” them Monday to get the $99 price.

    • Mmm

      Out dated software..

    • Manyfishes

      Great news if you were able to get one at this price. What a steal!!!

    • Mandy

      I just ordered one from Wal-Mart for pickup in a local store. Fingers crossed it works! I had to change stores several times before finding one that had one available!

      • Lauren

        Me too!  Took some refreshing and changing stores, but my order is in.  Hoping that it doesn’t get canceled!

        • Lauren

          ….AND the order has now been cancelled.  =(  No luck for me I guess.

          • Mandy

            Mine was cancelled too :-(

    • Aljatcu2002

      My husband just bought the last one in Anderson, SC for $149. Can’t believe he found it.

      • Craig

        Did he say how many they had and  where is the store in Anderson?

        • Aljatcu2002

          Only had the display model left at the Hwy 28 Walmart in Anderson.

    • Hlferguson123

      My husband just called Wal-Mart and they said that they had just sold out in the store for that price. Luckily we have 3 Wal-Marts so he is driving to the other two.

    • Marlyn

      I got one on Ebay for $185.  If you want to pay a little bit more – there are many new ones up on Ebay – I’m sure these are the people that bought them for $99 making money!!  But for me it was still an ok price.

    • They’re out of stock now. : (

    • SuzQ

      Walmart website said they had availability in my store this morning.  I went in & there were at least 10 in the cabinet.  They were regular price.  Now the website says they are out of stock.  I’m in a small town.  I feel like I wasted my morning on this nonsense.  Ugh.

    • Tashahuskey

      Just went to Staples and the guy looked at me like i was crazy. He checked the price and it is still 499.

      • Bobbie D

        They need to check their email or tell them to call another store. Because the email dropped in alabama, mississippi either last night or this morning.

    • Rosebud2002

      I can’t get anybody from my Best Buy store here in Opelika,AL to at least answer my phone call. I’ve tried calling 4x’s and been on hold for 30 minutes. This is ridiculous. Now I’m beginning on just how badly I’d like to have this gadget….

    • Amyls01

      DON’T TRY THIS!  It is mandatory that all stores send them back to HP.

      • Aharris0818

        Nope, we got one :)

    • S_CarolinaGirl

      Just got off the phone with my local Best Buy.  They actually had them on the website and took them off, so I was curious if they would only be selling them in-store.  I was told that Best Buy will no longer be carrying the product.

    • Patriciaannpickett

      We just tried to purchase in,Fayetteville Ga at Best Buy and they refysed to sell at the sale price.

    • K2sfi

      I have not been able to find this deal anywhere and my son works for one of these retailers.

    • mom2m2j

      Bought the last one at my local Office Depot 16GB for $129.99.  Walmart was honoring the web price, but are sold out.  Office Max & Best Buy said they are sending them back to the company for full credit and would not sell them.

    • Vince0801

      Ps i love Jenny

    • Aura

      My husband checked at Best Buy and the store had boxed them all up to send back! :(

      • As they should.  Best buy doesn’t want to sell you a device that is outdated and unsupported before you buy it.

    • Jodibrewer

      I placed an order online through Micro Center.  I haven’t received a confirmation email, so I’m concerned that it will not go through.  On hold with them right now since they do not have a section on their website to check your order status.

      • Jodibrewer

        And they have no record of my order.  Oh well! 

    • Duffer270

      I got the last 16GB touchpad in my store! I felt like a lottery winner!! :D Thanks so much for posting this deal! Merry Christmas to me early!
      P.S. Going along with Patricia-there’s another store in my area refusing to sell it at online listed price. What’s up with that?

    • Butterfly_31602

      I called my Walmart and they said they are still full price.  So not cool that some Walmarts have them marked down and others are still showing full price!

      • You can always buy it and then return/repurchase when the price drops.

      • Kim

        My walmart had them for full price too.  The girl said they had to wait on the ok to reduce them.  I was about to leave when I saw an ‘official’ looking person going back towards electronics.  I followed her and asked her if she was the manager.  She was there helping with a phone issue.  She said yes so I told her about the price drop.  She had not checked her emails yet.  She went and checked them and came back and told the girl to mark them down.  They had 2 in stock but said only one per customer.  Might be worth asking to speak to the manager and asking!

    • Couponmary

      I just got off the phone with HP, they are going to put more stock either tonight or early tomorrow. They told me that they are having many call about this product. If u missed it, try again later on today or  tomorrow! Hope this helps. OH they did not let me pre order the Hp touch.

    • Bobannwilber

      Thank you for the notice.  Our Walmart only had 2 in the store.  Even though they had not received word yet to mark them down, they said we could buy at regular price and if the price went down in 7 days we could get a price adjustment. 

    • Aharris0818

      Oh my! We had quite the run around this morning!! Someone in our area was hitting every store and buying them out! We finally had a manager feel sorry for us and demand another store to hold one for us. When we got there, the person that had been buying them all out was in line in front of us. He asked and they said they had none, then we went and got ours! His face was priceless! 32GB for $140 and they threw in a free case for our trouble :) Thanks Jenny!!

    • Lag2a1979

      None in middle TN…everyone is either out of stock or not honoring the price.

      • Blackney Meg

        hh gregg in nashville has them!! just got one!!

    • FHSavers

      Thanks for posting!  Couldn’t find on here in TX, but my Dad in GA ran around and was able to get Staples to price match!  Can’t wait to get one!  (Best Buy in my area said they are not selling the product anymore…)

    • Vince0801

      I love you Jenny!!!!!! got my 32g from staples for $150!!!!!!!!, tried to go to Best Buy and they said they where sending them all back to HP because they would get more money back for them.  I don’t care I got one!!!!!

      • Anti Spam

        Were they advertised at this price or did they rang up at 150? My store told me they are still reg. price. THANKS

        • swirlypop

          My walmart had no idea they were this price.  I asked them to scan it and sure enough.

        • Vince0801

          i had to ask,they had 3 left  they were not posted anywhere

    • Nancy_7761

      Thank youl thank you, thank you.  I was able to purchase at my local Walmart online to pick up today.   Great Savings.  My daughter got one too.

    • Couponeagle11

      office depot sold out walmart sold out and office max says theve been recalled in tuscaloosa al. I think alot of stores are sending them back just a few decided to sell at lower price

    • Appleshell

      I’ve been calling around to different stores today and finally called customer service for Sears and OfficeMax. The OfficeMax store I called said they didn’t have any, but more might be on their truck on Monday. However, when I called OM customer service (because their online price was still $500, she told me she hadn’t heard anything about the price drop yet. She went to ask one of her superiors and the memo across the board was that OM hadn’t yet decided a plan for their HP Tablets. I wonder if the guy at OM told me they were “out” because all of the employees were holding the ones they have in stock, waiting to see what the prices would be (so THEY could get first dibs if the prices were $99 and $149). Either way, they haven’t changed their price online yet.

      Sears said that they can’t price-match HP, because HP doesn’t have an actual “store”. And he told me that Wal-Mart’s HP Tablets had a different model number than theirs. Alrighty, then.

    • Tsjeffs

      I went Amazon and for the 16GB touchpad is 389.99.  Where r  u seeing them for 99.00?

      • Tsjeffs

        The reason they have a different model number is because they are made of poorer quality, that’s why Wal-marts can sell them for that.

        • Rudydoescakes

          This was Best Buys price as well.

    • Karmah60

      Sold out in our Walmarts. I bet Ebayers were hitting every store.  I hate that.  Bummer, I REALLY wanted one. The story app for kids is too awesome.  Had my eye on it for a long time now, but it was so out of reach price-wise for me until now.  No fair!  Sigh, I guess I’ll keep trying to save and coupon my way to an Ipad2.  :(

    • I went to a Birmingham Walmart this morning to see if they had them after I called the Electronics department and listened to the phone ring for 20 minutes and never an answer. (Yes, it’s one of those stores.) I finally found the employee that works in electronics and I asked her if they had them. She seemed to know what she was talking about and informed me that they weren’t actually supposed to arrive until Aug. 30th. And that they would be honoring the new price when they got them in the store. So I’m just going to keep a check on them everyday and see what happens. I don’t think this is a lost cause. They are probably going to send out more.

    • Tricia

      Got 2 32 GB Touchpads at the Office Depot in Roswell GA!!

      • Felicia

        Tricia – WHICH ONE PLEASE???

      A buddy of mine went to several local stores here and at 2 of them, the same people were in line buying 2, 4, or 6 of them, clearing ALL of them out.  He even asked someone if he could buy one from them at the same price and they laughed at him and told him he was S.O.L. and that they were selling them on ebay.  

    • In about two months these will be useless paper weights. You really should just spend the extra and get an iPad 2. The support is excellent and there is still software being created for them as well as a huge base of software currently available. There are only a few hundred thousand of these around and they are mostly bought at a bargain price, there is NO incentive for developers to make anything for them, and HP is not going to support them. You are buying junk for $99. Just a fair warning.

      We live in Fl. Panhandle. Two Walmarts had for regular price. Two were selling at the discount.  Paid over $500.00 for the 32GB then proceeded to the other side of town and made them give us the difference!!!!!  Success!!!! 

      • I am also in fl panhandle can you tell me where you went and if they still had any?  looking online the closest for me will be andalusia

      • That’s my plan. I bought one at regular price and I’m going to return/repurchase at a store close to my work on Monday that has them for the discount!

    • CINDIE SELLING

      PRINTED THE HP AD  AND WENT TO MY LOCAL HHGREGG STORETHIS MORNING. GUESS WHAT! THEY WHERE PULLING THEIR STOCK TO SENT BACK TO HP. THE MANGER SAID TO SELL THEM TO ME AT $149.99 EACH.I WAS AT THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME.  THANKS FOR THE INFO.  CINDIE

      I must be missing something. If HP is canceling production where will one get support for this item? My hushand had such a bad experience with their customer support on their Laptop that he would not buy another HP product unless it is a printer which he is very happy with and he told them so.

      • Karmah60

        You make a good point.  No support soon.  No new apps.  Outdated.   Yeah, I’m no longer upset that I can’t find one. :) 

    • Adama

      Personally I am not even going to try to find one to buy.  I don’t want something that the software on it will never be updated, nor with they come out with any new applications for it.  I will continue to say for an iPad 2!

    • Rhonda Ward

      Best Buy in Gardendale, AL has received an email from corporate headquarters to pull these from their shelves. They are not allowed to sell any and have to ship them back to their warehouse.

      • Bobbie03042010

        Same her in the Mobile area Rhonda. They don’t want to loose the money. So they are returning to get full credit is what I was told.

    • Sarah

      There is NOT ONE around the Raleigh/Knightdale area to be found!!!

      • If you are in Raleigh you can travel to Danville, VA. I called the store and they have a TON in stock however, there are at full price right now and can not tell me when they will come down. They told me there is a fine print that states “prices vary by store”.  I also know Eden, NC has the 32GB for $147

        • Nickpo

          what store?

          • John

            went to Danville, and Reidsville, Martinville,   Va 0 in stock, so went to Macdon and Eden, Burlington, Graham, Mebane, Greensboro and 0 to be found dont waste your time   

    • Amhebb

      no luck any where in Daytona, FL

    • Jen

      I cannot find one anywher…wish i could though.

    • Miss_afb

      ive been really wanting one and can’t find one in 50 miles :(

    • Wdtcagent

      Seems that all retailers in Central Florida were told to pull them from the shelves.  No luck here.  :-(

    • Jodibrewer

      Just got one from samsclub.com!  I sure hope my order isn’t canceled!!!

    • rachel

      got one at staples in canton ga….they had 2 left and the man in front of me was buying them i looked and said ohhhh noooo….and he turned around and said “i feel greedy if i take them both” and handed me the last one in the store!! what a total gentleman….they just dont make them like that anymore!!!

      • Anti Spam

        Were they advertised at this price or did they rang up at 150 ? My store told me they were still reg. price. Thanks :)

    • Couponjnj

      Just got 2 for my family from samsclub.com :) the 32gb. Came out to about $340 with shipping but save me on gas driving around trying to find out. Thanks you so much Jenny! We’re really excited!!

    • swirlypop

      After 4 stores finally bought 2.  It’s gonna be a good christmas in our house.  Thanks Jenny!

    • Syren026

      Have been everywhere in Buford GA looking for one. Called TigerDirect (store here in GA), and HP. HP said their business solutions still had some but for reg price and maybe they would match. Been on hold with them for the last 52 minutes :)

    • Spage

      This is some crazy stuff. We have been all over Nashville, TN and surrounding counties and still haven’t found one. You call and they say that have a couple and when you get there, umm sold out. Bummer.

    • They had 2 at Walmart in Gadsden, AL, but they were at regular price. I went ahead and bought one. I asked the folks in Customer Service and they said it could return it and repurchase it once the price dropped and get a refund for the difference. At the worse, I keep my receipt, don’t open it, and can return it for a full refund.

      But I also work in Anniston, AL and I saw on here earlier where someone bought one from Walmart there. So I will probably just not open it until Monday and return/repurchase it during my lunch break. 

      • Rudydoescakes

        They rang up reg price at mine also.  I asked them to update their hand held gun and when they did the reduced price showed!  Woohoo.
         

        • I’m so impatient that I might go back tonight and see if it updated. The associate had the pricing gun and she updated it, but it still hadn’t been pushed to them. She said that the home office pushes the updates. 

    • nanasap

      Terrible sinus headache this morning.. picked up my iPhone and read this post.. Jumped out of bed and headed to Staples.. Got last one they had in stock (32gb) Now back in the bed to nurse my headache, but with a smile on my face ;-) Thanks Jenny

    • Jodibrewer

      Ordered the 32GB from samsclub.com and got a confirmation email, so I hope it doesn’t get canceled.  What a crazy day! 

    • Amhebb

      office max.com had them still – they say its normal price but at checkout the fix it.  will only let you get 1.  my zip is 32119 if you need it.  HURRY!

    • Amhebb

      HURRY to officemax.com.  upon checkout you can get it, but at first they say its old price.  HURRY though!

    • maryB

      Got the 32 GB at walmart, called ahead and they set it aside for me, it was the last one and only $149.00!

    • Tracy

      Got one each of the 16gb (last one!) and 32gb at WalMart in Rockland, Maine. Had to ask, they had them out back, but they rang up at the reduced price.

    • I saw a commercial for them about an hour ago.  The commercial was advertising the original price… Do you all know whether they will run java applications.. My kid is in the georgia cyber academy, and we were looking for something that would run her school applications.

    • FLMOM

      I can’t find them anyway in north FL.  Staples & Officemax said they pulled from all shelves and are returning back to HP for their own refund.

    • Heather

      Call around before you waste all your time driving around. I have called 2 Walmarts and one said nope, totally sold out, but the other one said they sold out but may get another shipment today and to call and check later.

    • Rudydoescakes

      Just bought the last 4 at our Walmart!  One for me, my husband, and one for each set of parents for Christmas!  Yay and thank you!!!

      Apparently the rumor is that despite HP killing this version (with the Palm WebOS on it) the device itself it still an excellent piece of hardware – so HP is supposed to be working on an Android version (thus will have Android available for this current model).  I would say if you can find one then you got a great deal – keep your ears open for news about Android being available later (probably by Christmas since I would expect a new model available then).

      Just my two cents as an IT person and based on what I can find in conversations on Tech boards.

    • Ekuhn

      Anyone find them in the Raleigh area?  

      • AmyQ

        Winston’s gone too!

    • Viss

      Just out of curiosity, did anyone find any in the Fort Myers, FL area?

      • Anonymous

        no, i went out this morning…no luck

    • Nancy_7761

      They will tell you anything – and some people will believe them.  I bought one online at my local walmart — rec’d my pick up today confirmation.  My daughter ordered one — before she rec’d her confirmation – they cancelled her order.  The internet Walmart site showed they had the 32gb in stock but not available for in store pick up.  We raced to our local Walmart.  Had the girl pull the 1 16gb and 2 32 gb out of shelve.  We told her price — she called manager.  The manager him-hawed around about cancelling my daughters order pickup – and they had one in stock.  Go figure!! Then she tried to say the two 32 gb ones weren’t one in the same — and my daughter showed her the upc code from their online site and it was.  She tried every way to not sell them to us for 99.00 and 149.00 But we got all three of them — plus the one I ordered online.  Seems to me – she found out when I ordered (And hadn’t updated hers yet – falling behind on her work — haha) and wanted to keep.  While we were there — they were people calling electronics one after another — asking for them.  By the way, we are in Scottsboro, Alabama.

    • Greedymuch?

      Jeez.  With people buying 2 or more there’s no wonder everyone’s out of stock.  It’s like the techopocalypse with everyone running out and buying as many as they can carry, like the tech world is going to end tomorrow.

    • annoyed

      I think stores are holding them back

    • Rclay18

      Go to ebay and see all the newly listed touchpads – listed today. Listed as new, sealed in box.

    • Nancy_7761

      Yes, some will resale — some are buying for awesome Christmas presents.  I bought one and selling one to pay for the other. 

    • Melnewk

      So excited!!! My husband and I called at least 10 different stores and the Brandsmart in Buford had two of them! The deal is out there…

    • Debbie

      WalMart.com said that it was a pricing glitch and that HP has not actually lowered the price. 

    • Jenn

      Can’t find any in Indiana and Office Max which is 35 min away will not hold them…boo! 

    • SuzQ

      OK, I’m going to vent, and then not look at this page again.  I am so steaming mad, and it’s just not worth it.  I went to Walmart at o’dark thirty this morning.  10 in the case, 5 behind the counter with the salesgirl.  She said she was waiting for the price to drop, and having her mom come get them.  Fine.  Talked to the manager.  She would not match the online price, and said if I bought it at regular price & the price dropped, they would only redund the difference IF THEY HAD MORE IN STOCK at the time.  I couldn’t risk that, so I left.  I went back after my husband went to a Walmart about 20 minutes away & they said they sold out AT THE CLEARANCE price.  So I sped back to my Walmart.  Still 10 in the case.  Same cashier.  No price change.  I called the other store, who sold them for the price.  They said get the manager.  The cashier said she called the manager, and they said they will NOT sell them at $149/$99.  I started walking to the front, to talk to the store manager – WITH THE OTHER STORE MANAGER still on the line.  He said to go back to electronics & demand she ring them up & check the price, as this is a SYSTEM-WIDE mark-down, that should have happened when they updated their system this morning.  I walked back to electronics….AND ALL 10 BOXES WERE GONE OUT OF THE CASE.  There was ONE CUSTOMER in electronics, looking at TVs, with no cart, and no Touchpad boxes.  There were now THREE employees in electronics.  I asked where the Touchpads were.  The original cashier smiled and said, “We’re out of stock”.  I was dumbfounded, and asked who bought them.  She said, “People have been waiting for them to go on sale all day.”  I replied, “Yes. Me too.  But I was here ONE MINUTE ago, and there were 10.  Where are they?”  She continued to smile and said, “They’re out of stock.” 

      Sometimes it’s hard to be a Christian. 

      I walked to the front of the store & told the manager.  She said she was sorry.  I told her that her employees must have just bought them or set them aside.  She checked her computer and said they did not show any in stock. 

      So I left.

      Spent my day looking for these things.  I have 2 kids in college and 2 in high school, and we can’t afford to give them laptops.  I thought this was a solution, and was so excited.  I even had my parents and brother in another state look for them, to no avail. 

      Walmart sucks.

      • Kim

        I’m sorry that happened!  Apparently Best Buy is sending all theirs back to HP so they don’t have to sell them at a loss and HP will be selling more online.  Keep checking the HP website!

      • Couponjnj

        you can try amazon, my sister said they will reimburse the price overage once they get confirmation from HP. Call them and they can confirm. I’m so sorry for your day :( good luck!!!

        • SuzQ

          Thank you.  They are no longer available on Amazon.  There was conflicting info about whether or not they would price match later, but regardless, they are no longer selling them.  They are available from other sellers, but that will definitely NOT be price matched.  Thanks anyway!

    • Laneykateandjacksmom

      I can’t get WalMart’s website to let me order a tablet.  It keeps saying it’s having “temporary difficulties arriving at the destination requested”.  I found a local Walmart that has THREE @ $499 but the only way to get the $149 price is to order online.  Talk about frustrated!!!

      • SuzQ

        The GOOD manager at my not-so-local Walmart said to DEMAND they update their system, and not leave until they do.  I am telling you to to get the box in your hands and do not let it go.  They WILL change the price.  I just lost out because I was stupid enough to let the box out of my sight.  The employees are grabbing them up.  GO BACK.

        • Jessica

          I did not think the employees could buy things on the clock. I couldn’t when I worked there.

          • Chris

            They may not be able to actually pay for them but they can certainly stash them where they can’t be found.

            • SuzQ

    • kelley

      Very upset… ordered 5 from hhgregg… then we were notified we had to come back to store to get a refund because hhgregg had to ship all of the ones in their warehouse in Atlanta back to hp… that is not right… we have been on phone with hp for 2 hours now and got nowhere.

      • Many of the retail sellers / distributors have yanked the HP Tablet completely because of how much money they were losing per tablet sale and the return rate.

        All of the Best Buys in my region stopped selling them about 2 weeks ago, way before this clearance announcement, because the Tablet was such a monumental failure for HP (and therefore distributors). 

    • Kim

      This morning at Office Depot in Decatur Alabama, there was a line to get in before they opened.  I was 4th in line.  When we went in the store, they announced that they only had 3 in stock.  I was SO disappointed.  I mentioned that I had wanted to get one for my kids for Christmas and the man in front of me let me have his!!!  I couldn’t believe it.  What a sweet man.  He said he had enough toys and the kids needed it.  If you’re reading this….THANK YOU!!  My kids are going to have a great Christmas.

        I totally agree. Ebay they are going for 200 or more for the 16gb. CRAZY. Once again it goes to people clearing the shelves have made it hard for the ones that use coupons correctly.

      • Afy1229

        I just responded to a craigslist add and told him I was out all morning trying to pick one of these up and thanks to people like him that were out buying them all up to resell…I didn’t get one.  I said I won’t pay 350, but I will pay 149 plux tax what you paid.  LOL!  Of course, I got no response.

      I feel lucky for once. I was able to get to a touchpad today. HHgregg had 2 left the lady in front of us and then we were able to get one. I think the boy beside of us got mad cause we got one and he wanted 2, but the store manager told him only 1 per person and handed us one.

        I wish they all did that.  I think it’s ridiculous seeing people buy 2, 3, 5?!  Seriously.  The greed is astounding.

        • Tthimlar

          that’s because they wanna sell them for under the regular retail price and make money on it on ebay!

        • AmyQ

          If I had gone to the store, I would have snagged 3 because I wanted one, my brother wanted one, and we were going to get my mom one for her b-day coming up. I understand what youre saying abou the greed, but not all of us were going to rush to ebay to sell them at markup.

      • Just4yall

        I feel lucky as well. My entire city is out I got the last one. unless other stores get more. The only reason I got one is because a store employee held it and then decided not to buy it. I wonder how many store employees snagged them before anyone else had a chance.

    • My  wal-mart (Ft. O, GA) showed they had some so I went there this morning. They had 12 in the case at regular price. I asked about discount and they said I would have to buy online and choose store pick up. Online it said “not available”. Guy in electronics said the district manager would have to get word about sale price. Keep in mind that Chattanooga stores were sold OUT and sold at discount price. My store would not price match without a physical paper ad. Eventually there were several others asking with me:-) FINALLY, they got a manager out and one of the managers actually said she was shocked at the price and proceeded to take one to put in back for herself. One guy was persistent and the managers agreed to over-ride the price and sell at discount. SO I did get one after an hour of discussing with managers. Wish I had gotten 2 now:-)

    • I want an iPad, but can’t afford that right now. I have a Mac computer. If I were able to find one, would this HP be worth it as a Mac user?

    • I have a Mac. Would this product be worth it?

      • Chris

        I would personally say no.  I’m betting with the economy Tech manufacturers will be releasing something pretty snazzy at Christmas with Android on it at a really good price (to stimulate holiday sales).  Unless you just need something to read email with and surf the web (ie. if you travel and just need these two functions but don’t want to take a laptop with you).  But to each his own.

        • Yeah, I want an iPad, but it’s too much money. I’m afraid with the HP or Andriod based device, I’ll be dishing out money for some 3rd party software to sync with my mac.

            All of the tablets are in my opinion.  I’ll stick with my Toshiba 17″ laptop.

            •  Exactly. I’ll stick to my Sony Vaio!

    • FYI – i couldn’t find any today, but the hhgregg in columbia, sc (harbison area) *should* be getting more tomorrow. when i called the guy said come in and pay for them and we’ll hold them for you, but when i got there the manager said no because there was no guarantee of what would be on the truck. But he thought there was a good chance if you showed up at 11am when they open, they would have some. Just wish it wasn’t sunday tomorrow. oh well.

      • Kamnsc

        I was told that hhgregg was sending them all back and not selling them in the store.  I called and was told probably none of them on the truck tomorrow.  :(

      • Marc S

        I was just told that they would not have any at all!

    • Anonymous

      I was actually able to get two ordered on OfficeMax.com.  I got the confirmation email, but now I just have to hope they actually ship and aren’t cancelled.  Sure would feel better if I’d managed to find them in store so I knew it was a done deal!  

      Kmart, Sears, Amazon and Radio Shack still have online for full price so I would watch those stores b/c they will either have to pull them or discount them in the next day or two I would imagine.

    • Patsouth

      Our store in Jesup GA had one of the 64GB but the manager flatly refused to change the price, said they DO NOT comp online prices or other WalMart stores prices. Pretty rude

    • Picked 2 up at Sam’s club! last 2 in store and they hadn’t changed the prices on the shelves yet and the manager had to push the price through on their computers but my boyfriend and i are excited!

    • Appleshell

      OK…after lots of patience and about 30 or so minutes of trying (mostly waiting for a slow server to move through to the next ordering step), my husband was able to get (2) 16 GB and (1) 32 GB tablets from HP’s Small and Medium Business site. He kept getting an error message, when clicking on “Checkout” but after numerous tries, the page finally started to load…which took awhile, so if you try this do NOT hit your back button! Be patient. He was able to fill in his personal info and then had to wait awhile for the NEXT page to load, and so on. FINALLY, out of the blue, a confirmation came up that our order was in! The link for the site is the second link in this PC Magazine article that discusses where you can still (maybe) get the tablets. Don’t forget the www when using the link. Or you can do a search for this title and see the article.

      Searched all over.  Knew I wouldn’t be lucky enough to find one.  Big bummer.  I can’t afford the orig. prices on these things, but I would manage $99.  oh well.  Thanks for always keeping us informed!! (if anyone bought more than one and would like to be such a giving person to let me buy it at that price, let me know!) :o)

      Around hear sold out at office depot by 9am, walmart early a.m and sams club 7am  at the low price. I missed them all : (    Bestbuy is sending their products back to HP. They actually took down the HP display as we all stood there waiting on the word if they were going to sell at new low price. Staples has not lowered price and had no indication if they would. I chatted with a rep on hp.com and they can not comment on if they will get anymore or of the other retailers will be required to lower the prices. So bummed that I missed this. Downside of living in really populated area.

    • Neilk124

      I just bought a new touchpad 12 days ago. When I saw the news HP was discontinuing I ran back to Staples to get a full refund which they did. The Touchpad was neat but not a replacement for a student in need of a laptop for college. The apps were limited too and you can bet a new app will never be written. I would be worth it for the Kindle app and to use for e-mail. Good luck to all new buyers.

      Looked/Called EVERYWHEREin Winston Salem NC – Everyone’s out! The stores that we have (that I thought of to call) are:
      Staples, Sears, Office Max, Office Depot, Sams Club, Costco, Walmart, Radio Shack, and HH Gregg.
      Can anyone think of another store to try and I’ll call them up. I drove all the way to an Office Max (out of my way) bc the lady on the phone said they could order one from the warehouse for me, but i had to go in the store bc they couldnt do it over the phone. By the time I got there (about 30 mins) they were out at the warehouse too. UGHUGHUGH!! Oh well… you can’t get all the deals, although, this was a pretty big one to miss. =/

      • Just4yall

        you prob already tried but forgot to mention, but you didnt say bestbuy or target. And if u really want one try criagslist. I checked mine and there are already tons of posts maybe you can get lucky and get a 16gb one for 150. I know it rude for people to resell and if I didnt getnone I would still not buy from them but you might be interested.

      • Emily

        Kmart, Sears, Radioshack, Sams club….

    • Fourthwatch

      I got the last one from Walmart after stopping at BestBuy and calling Office Max (which stated they pulled theirs from the shelf) and Office Depot.  It had just been returned, unopened!!  Thank you Jesus first and thank you Jenny. 

    • Tmoas

      Just tried a couple Walmarts in the Charleston SC area – all are out – closest stock is in Manning SC, they had 2 left. If you live in Manning you may still have a chance to get one. So bummed I missed this deal.

      • Anonymous

        Charleston area Walmarts were out by 10 a.m. :) at least according to the one in Goose Creek.   N. Charleston Office Depot and Target in Summerville and N. Charleston out for sure.  Sam’s  and Staples by Tanger out.

        • all staples were out within 20 minutes of the official corporate announcement this morning. last night staples was notified by corporate to pull and ship all HP tablets back, but since we had them stocked still staples decided to go ahead and put them on clearance for the sake of the consumers even though it was more of a money loss than to straight up return them to HP

      Got two at hp dot com slash hbso.  $149+tax+free shipping for 32GB.  Took forever.  Their site is overloaded.  But it worked!

        Remember to go through ebates!

          Why is it saying page not found?

          • Tamara

            Beneath that it said page is no longer available or has been moved.

      • Tara

        I tried and it says page not found.  =(

      • Carriejoyner77

        How? Was the screen still showing “out of stock”

        • SuzQ

          We have a small business account with HP, so I went in that way.  It took forever, and the page kept going to an error page, but I kept going back and retrying and going back and retrying and going back……and perseverence & patience won out.  Finally got two in my cart, finally got to the payment page, and finally got a confirmation.  Good luck.

    • Just wanted to let you guys know, I hope you research the fine print on this clearance deal pertaining to HP’s reasoning in discontinuing the tablet. I work as a computer technician / salesman at one of the stores mentioned in the comments and in this post.  We had to give a 2 or 3 minute-long speech as a warning to everyone who was interested in buying these once they were designated as clearance by corporate.

      There is a reason HP is trying their hardest to disassociate themselves with this tablet… slashgear.com has the rundown. I personally wouldn’t ever buy a computer or ESPECIALLY first generation tablet if i knew I would receive no technical support on it. HP has been vague as to whom they will outsource the software support (confirmed, no hardware support…), if they do it at all. They only announced a few days ago that they were discontinuing and dumping the Touchpad. Even at $99.99 or $149.99 it’s a gamble.

      I only sold it today to a couple who told me it was only for their 4 year old daughter to play games on car rides (their words – if it works for even a couple of months, it has paid for itself.), and another guy who said he was going to try to jailbreak it and install the Android OS, which I do not endorse, and warned him about the risks and failure probability.

      I can’t even justify the 100$ pricetag, and I had the option of buying the 3 we had in stock for a few hours before the store opened to customers.

      If you bought one, good luck.

      Keep an eye on your Best Buys!  The Best Buy in Macon, GA posted on their Facebook at 9:15 this evening that they were selling them on a first come first serve basis.  We jumped in the car and by 9:45 were out of that store with a 32GB for $149!!!!  People were pouring in the store though, so I bet they were gone by the time they closed at 10:00.  Check your stores because I bet a lot more will release them tomorrow.

    • Thank you, Jenny! I am checking out southernsavers.com from my $99 tablet right now! I love it! I bought mine for full price in Moultrie GA today and then took it to Valdosta GA where the price was right for a refund/repurchase. It was some trouble, but worth it in the end. When I woke up this morning, I had no idea I would be buying a tablet today!

      What paper had the ad in it?

    • lori

      I read this post this morning and stopped by Office Max for some notebooks. By luck I remembered at check-out and asked what the deal was with the HP tablets after hearing one of the Office Max workers that they were all out and that  more than 80 people already called trying to get it. The cashier then told me that his co-worker just got off the phone telling them that if they have any, they can sell them- and so, they only had one and I was the only lucky one to get it. I am so happy!!

      PS I typed this from my new HP tablet! Thanks Jenny and thank you Office Max Boy!

        and submitted to buy, but it keeps doing an error page… I’ve gone

      Just ordered a 32 GB Touchpad minutes ago from the HP Small Business site http://shopping1.hp.com  It took 2 hours of constantly reloading the pages but I finally got all the way thru the order process.

    • Tamara

      !!!Thank you so much SuzQ!!!  I was just able to get one on their website.  It took an hour, but it worked.

    • Jason

      Does anyone know if the Touchpads from the HP small business website are any different than the ones you would buy from Best Buy, etc?  They list a different model # but I wondered how different they might be.

      • Chris

        Every retailer like Besy Buy, Walmart, etc., typically gets a different “model number” when it comes to electronics even though the item is exactly the same.  If you compare features they are most likely identical.  Manufacturers do this because some retailers want special packaging, or due to special pricing don’t want competitors to be able to price match, or their item may come with a special accessory, so on and so forth.  But the base unit I am 99.99% sure is the same.

          Okay! Like I said, they have my shipping and credit card, I hit submit and now it’s doing it’s thing. Just keeps coming up an error so I just keep refreshing it! Hoping my patience pays off…

      Same for me Ashley! I keep hitting refresh too. i sure hope i’m not making duplicate orders. but i’ve tried to go and view my order status through a different window, and it wants all these order nmbers and such so i can’t find it.

      • Chris

        If you provided your personal info and created a new account on the website then you should be able to login to your HP SMB account and see the order info there if it actually processed.  Also if you provided an email address you should get an order confirmation by email.  If you are unable to login OR you have not gotten a confirmation email then you could keep trying, try calling, or wait until the wee hours of the morning and traffic to their site should die down.  Good luck!!

        • AmyQ

          Thanks Chris! I’m going to keep trying on the website and i might call too. thanks for all your help!

          My mom and I spent 3 1/2 hours (10:30pm to 2am), each at our own houses. It finally went through although when I got to final window it added an extra one to my cart and no way to get rid of it. It was literally the last screen. I was not starting over so I just got the extra one and a friend will buy it from me. I received order confirmation with order #. I have pending charge on bank account but have not received email conf.

          Did yours ever go through?

    • Chris

      We have a special website for HP EPP (Employee Purchase Program) through my employer and even that says out of stock (and still shows the full price).  I was going to post that info here for everyone but since they are out guess it doesn’t matter.

      Anyone that ordered one through HP receive a confirmation email yet?

    • AmyQ

      Oh my gosh… I got an order number to show with my customer number – but there’s a thingie above it saying “hp processing……” like its still processing my CC. so hopefully it goes through. and then “hopefully” i’ll actually get them in the mail instead of getting a refund.

        No email confirmation yet.

        I’m really hoping I don’t end up with a refund! Man am I going to be tired for church tomorrow!!!!

    • J Yauniek

      i got one in my cart but I cant seem to get free shipping. How did you guys get free shipping?

      • Keisa

        It was an option in the checkout process on the hp small business site.

        • J Yauniek

          it didnt give me that option. the cheapest was $21.

          • Keisa

            Yikes!!! I’m not sure. There were three options that were free when I checked out: UPS, FedEx, and something else.

            • J Yauniek

              i dont know. Im holding the page and going to try again on a different browser. My friend just did it and got free shipping so I dont know why im not being offered it. 

      • AmyQ

        None of my options were free either. but at this point, i’ll pay for S&H. i got a confirmation number, but then it didnt finish it’s “processing” my card and it kicked me out…. =/ doesnt look like it’s going to happen for me.

      does anyone know what the monthly fee is for the WiFi and who it has to be thru? Thanks

      • Chris

        WiFi is just wireless Internet either in your home (using a WAP – Wireless Access Point – and your current ISP or Internet Service Provider) or at a “hotspot” out and about somewhere (a lot of places have free hotspots).  There are other options depending on your provider or you could use someone like Clear for wireless internet access in select cities (like Atlanta).  HTH

          Thanks Chris got  it now was thinking it was able to access internet anywhere anytime

    • DealHunter

      Does anyone have an order through the HP Small/Medium Business site that isn’t “Processing”?

      • Chris

        Keep in mind some retailers will show “processing” until they actually complete and ship your order (like Dell, Amazon, etc).  When in doubt I would suggest calling to be sure – they could just be backed up or they could be out and the system just doesn’t know it yet.  Getting a person on the phone and having them confirm is the only way to be sure everything is going as planned.  Good Luck!

        • AmyQ

          hey chris! do you happen to know a number that i could call at this time of night? i’ve tried the one for salesmen on the small business website, but their not open right now.

          • Chris

            Looks like there are some possible numbers that appear to be open 24 hours – 800-334-5144 is Business Support and they may be able to help; 800-474-6836 is for Home and Home Office support.  They may tell you you have to speak with Sales though.  Sales is 888-999-4747 and they are open 7 days but hours vary for Home and Home Office depending on menu selection.  Business Sales is 800-888-9909 and they are only open M-F 8A to 8P ET.  General Sales is 800-752-0900 and hours vary depending on menu selection.  HTH

            • AmyQ

              thanks! =D i’m going to start calling.

      • Jabberjawzz1973

        My mom and I spent 3 1/2 hrs on HP small business site last night 10:30pm to 1:40am this morning. I was at my house and she was at hers. Their servers were crashing and we kept having to refresh page because of errors and time outs but with LOTS of patience it went through. When we got to last step before you submit to be charged we had an extra one in pour cart somehow. There was no way to remove it unless you started over. I was not starting over. I paid for the extra one and a friend is going to buy it. Good luck

    • Laritacanta

      I Was able to get one 16 GB and one 32GB at Best Buy. There was a small crowd and they had plenty but they word is spreading out fast. You are able to get one of each per customer. No refunds or exchanges. Office max was sold out. As told by a friend, DC Best Buys will have theirs out early Sunday. Good luck everyone! Thank you for the post Jenny. YOU ROCK!!!!!!

    • AmyQ

      After going back and trying again, it’s not ever letting me even view my cart now. I’ve tried adding the 32gb and the 16gb but it doesnt seem to matter. I might try until 4 and then go on to bed.

    • AmyQ

      Well I think I”m done. The numbers i tried were all closed. (maybe i chose the wrong options.) and its not letting me get anywhere this time. So good luck to everyone! And i hope it works for you!

    • Anonymous

      Best Buy stated that starting Sunday they would be selling them at the clearance price, but that store quantities will be limited and you are only allowed one per customer.

      • Kamnsc

        I just went on Best Buy website and purchased one.  It said I could pick it up today at the store.  I hope this works.  

    • Ksparr

      I just ordered one from Best Buy online this morning and it went through.  I’ve gotten a confirmation email also.  I’m surprised that it was still available this morning.  Think it will be cancelled???????

      • Thelulu1991

         Me too!!  No problem!!

      • Jabberjawzz1973

        You are lucky. We were at Best buy when they opened yesterday and they were informed they could not sell and lowered priced because they were shipping them back to HP. They actually took the whole display down as we all stood there.

        I did finally get one off HP small business site last night but it took my mom and I 3 1/2 hrs to get through the checkout cause their servers were crashing. She was at her house and I was at my house trying. Then when we got to final stage it ended up adding one extra touchpad to our cart. I was not going back to try to remove it after 3 1/2 hours of page errors and just sitting there waiting to process. Every time you had to click on something you just sat there forever or you would have to redo it. We have a friend that wanted one anyways. I cross my fingers it process like it says. I got a confirmation that is ships on 23rd  and the charge is pending in my bank account. It would of been allot easier yesterday morning in best buy when we had one in our hands, As of 1:30am this morning Best Buy still had not dropped

        • Amy L.

          I am actually worried about this…  I ended up with 2 as well…  I spent all night on the site also.  Apparently my orders were processed a couple of hours apart. It was around 12:30am here in SC but one was processed at 1:12am and the other at 4:20am…  Odd to me…   I am hoping that these aren’t false orders/orders numbers due to the site going down…  I was super excited…  but have my doubts… 

          • Jabberjawzz1973

            My order only processed once but I wanted 2 pads and had 2 in my cart but final page showed 3 in my cart. I will be so disappointed if it is not going to process. If they were completely out of stock you would think they would of just removed the page instead of letting the site keep crashing. That is what other sites did. good luck. Order status page is down to..

            • Amy L.

              I got to the
              Order Stauus page earlier and it said…  HP order receipt
              Your order is approved and being sent to order management.  I HOPE it processes!

          • Jabberjawzz1973

            no conf email as of yet. I did my order at 1:40am. I have pending charge with bank and conf at checkout though.

        I hope we all aren’t standing at Best Buy later today to pick up and are told that they don’t have any.  I’m still skeptical. 
         

        • Honesty

          Yes I just ordered one from there too and im not holding my breath since they said yesterdy they were sending them all back to HP.

        • Kamnsc

          I walked right into Best Buy around 11:40 and picked up mine.  It was actually there!  The lady said there was a long line at 11:00.  I hope you got yours!

        • Kamnsc

          I would imagine they would ship one to the store for you.  I ordered one to pick up and got confirmation.  My hubby tried right after me and couldn’t get one in the store.  He ordered one to be shipped.  We’ll see what happens.

    • Just ordered two from Best Buy, but had to have them shipped to my house. I have two orders from HP but I am not holding my breath as to whether those will go through or not. I managed to get through to the website last night and place two orders. If all four orders go through, I will not need all four so I will let Jenny know and I can sell them to some lucky person on here at cost.

    • Just ordered two from Best Buy, but had to have them shipped to my house. I have two orders from HP but I am not holding my breath as to whether those will go through or not. I managed to get through to the website last night and place two orders. If all four orders go through, I will not need all four so I will let Jenny know and I can sell them to some lucky person on here at cost.

      Stayed up until 2 in the morning trying to order but never went through.  HP site still has 32g available and absolutely no trouble at all ordering on the Small and Medium Business web site.

        When did you order for HP Small and Medium Business site?  I have been trying for an hour but when I go to the cart to checkout I get a page error.

        • Shayelyn

          I saved the site page from earlier this morning and my selection was still in my cart.  I tried to put the exact site in for you but it will get flagged.  I started around 8:30 this morning and was amazed at how fast it went.

          took me 3 1/2 hours but it finally went through. Just keep refreshing when you get error. If it is processing/thinking just let it be. Their servers are overloaded. I completed my order at 1:40am

        • SuzQ

          I just kept using my”back” button when I would get the error page, and trying again.  It took HOURS, but I finally got to the end, with a confirmation/order number.  I have not received a confirmation email, but they did take my payment out of my account (on hold).  They’re closed for the weekend, so I’ll let you know tomorrow if it actually worked.  Ha ha.  Just be patient….and persistent!  Good luck! 

      • Have you received a confirmation email from HP? I also ordered this morning. It says that my order is being processed.

        • Jabberjawzz1973

          I ordered at 1:40am and still no email conf. I got conf at checkout and charge is in pending status on bank account.

        • Shayelyn

          I got an order confirmation that I printed out but no confirmation email.  It says my order has been submitted for processing.  Seems like we got the same result.  Keeping my fingers crossed!

          • It appears so. My transaction is also pending in my bank account. Hopefully, we’ll get them.

    • Sams Club and HHGregg are also selling them online right now for the clearance prices!!!

      • Lyndacoupon

        Just tried to buy it off HHGregg and it said “This item can’t be purchased at this time” or something like that.

        • Jabberjawzz1973

          they sold out yesterday

    • Debbies

      HP.com has the 32GB Touchpads in stock, online for $149.  I just ordered one!

    • saver

      The hp business site doesn’t even have them listed.  HH Gregg says that the item you selected cannot be purchased, and Sam’s says out of stock. 

      • Tamara

        If you go to hp dot com and click on the pic of the touchpad beside the printer, it will take you to the page where you can add to cart.  It will say that the 16 gb is sold out 32 gb still available.  Scroll down and you will see the 32 gb.

        • Marlyn

          It won’t let me check out – any advice?

          • Can

            Make sure you’re doing it from an actual computer. It wouldn’t work from my iPhone but when I got on my laptop I was able to order twice.

            • Marlyn

              It took me a while but I think I got it – perhaps I got two – not sure – it’s noting two pending payments on my account, but I only ordered one.  I had to refresh many many times, so if I got two – happy birthday to my hubby!!  Thanks for your help everyone!

          • Tamara

            Last night it took about an hour.  I kept getting these weird error messages because there were a lot of people on their site.  I hit the back button or refresh and it would go through.  I received a confirmation number but not a confirmation email yet.  But, when I put in my order number to check the order status, its there on hp’s website.

            • Jabberjawzz1973

              took me 3 1/2 hrs last night. got conf at checkout but no email yet. Their servers were crashing with the overload of traffic. I hope it goes through ok. Charge is pending on bank account

            • Tamara

              That’s good to know.  I haven’t been able to check my account because its down for maintenance, lol.

          • Jabberjawzz1973

            be patient. took me 3 1/2 hrs to get through it. refresh after errors. I got some time outs and had to start over.

        • Gretta

          Thank you so much for this info.  I did just what you said and was able to purchase one for each of my children for Christmas.   It did take about 15 minutes from start to finish.  This will be perfect for my 13 year old autistic son he is always trying to use my ipad and at $600 makes me nervous.
          Thank again for sharing your info.

      Keep in mind that HP will no longer be “supporting” this item as they are getting out of the computer business entirely.

      • Cd_grady

        They are not getting out of the computer business as that is their main purpose.  They are briefly going to get out of the tablet business bc they can not compete with the ipad.  They said they will still provide tech support and all apps as always, they will just no longer produce the tablet.

      • Chris

        HP is a computer manufacturer – they will never be getting out of the computer business (they have been making hardware for decades).  They are just discontinuing this product because it failed miserably – the design is fine but the operating system (or OS – called webOS and it’s from Palm when they bought that company) sucks because there aren’t any apps for it hardly.  They will continue to provide support and warranties for the products – it is actually expected they are going to release a new version with Android on it sometime in the very near future.

        • Sarah

          This is still a great deal for just a tablet to surf the internet or use it as a calendar. I got one for my Dad becuase he cannot see his cell phone to check his e-mails (his eyes are getting worse with age) while he is out working. I thought this would be a great and inexpensive way for him to be able to see!! Hope I was right lol

          • Chris

            Oh yeah – I’m not knocking those that just need a simple device for surfing the web or using email.  It’s much better than a small phone.  But for anything more advanced than that it’s just not the device to do it.  If they do an Android version I would be interested at this price because I could take it when I travel and it’s easier to take on the plane than my laptop – plus then they would have all of the Android apps available for it.  Glad to see folks got one and hope those that are waiting get it too.

    • saver

      I don’t see any picture of it with a printer on the website?  Where are you talking about?

      • Tamara

        When I go to hp dot com on the first page, there is a picture of a printer that says save $100.  Right beside it there is a picture of a touchpad that says new lower price.

      Amazon hasn’t caught up with everyone…i just called and they won’t price match or anything…so wait and see…. i would like one for my daughter’s birthday. please post if you find one. THANKS

      Hello, talked to Staples…there is one for sale on display in Raleigh, NC. He said Amazon is waiting on corporate to release the new price…and to check back on their website sometime tomorrow….or maybe after midnight tonight…who knows. Good luck to those hunting one down. 

    • Tncouponcrazy

      I got two yesterday at HH Gregg in Nashville at 100 Oaks.  Now trying to learn how to use it.  Anyone know how to print coupons from these yet.  I need help!

      • Tamara

        You can print with a wireless printer.

        • Tncouponcrazy

          Trying to set mine up.  Any suggestions on how to print.  I have my printer connected but can’t download printer softwares yet. Any suggetions

    • Tmoas

      So excited – was just able to order on http://www.hp.com/hbso. Took a while to get through it all and had to refresh a few times but the order went through with confirmation. They are also giving free shipping –

    • Cd_grady

      You can buy them on HP’s small business website.  They are sold out of the $99 but still have the $149.  Bought mine about 15 minutes ago and it will ship for free on tuesday.  You are not required to put in any small business id. – Website kind of running slow but had no problems.

      • Miss_afb

        i added to cart now i cant figure out how to check out

      • I got 2 from the small business site as well. I hope this works!!

      • Gavymama

        I tried and got an error page.  I hit the back button and now it says “one moment please loading cart”  it has stayed like this for five minutes so far.  Did you have this problem?

        • Amy L.

          My “loading cart” page stayed up over night… and was still running this morning…??? Granted, I opened a new session and started from the beginning again and finally got an “order confirmation” page…    Good luck!

    • laura

      Marietta and Canton GA, just spent the morning on the phone checking sams club, walmart, best buy and office depot. all sold out

      • Savealotjlee

        i’m going to check the staples in roswell, and alpharetta. Ill keep u posted

        • Chris

          I would suggest going as far out of the city as possible (or you’re willing to drive).  Like Cartersville or Cumming or Helen or Dalton or something like that – check waaaaay out.  Atlanta-area stores are most likely going to be sold out.

    • Sarah Jacobs00

      Anyone in Raleigh able to get one recently?!?! I have tried for 2 days and nothing.

    • I did. It went to the website cannot be displayed but I clicked back one and it went to a loading page and eventually went through!!! Hang in there!!

    • Teresa

      I got the 32GB on Best Buy online this morning and the 16GB on the HP small business website this morning.  I just checked the HP small business website, it’s sold out of the 16GB but still has the 32GB.

    • Sarah

      I guess my only hope will be when Amazon comes around… :(

    • Julie

      I just ordered the 32GB from the HP website. 

      • Sarah

        How?? I have been trying for 2 hours

        • Julie

          It went through and I printed out my invoice but am still waiting on the confirmation email.  A few minutes after I ordered it, they were sold out of the 32GB.

      • Sarah

        How?? I have been trying for 2 hours

    • Julie

      I just ordered the 32GB from the HP website. 

    • wendyc33

      did someone say this has a kindle app with it? if so im interested, or is it something you have to add to it.

    • wendyc33

      btw i really want just the 99.00 one for my son. if it has a kindle app.

    • Aria

      I was also able to get the 32GB from the hp small business website. I was so excited because I spent all day yesterday searching and everyone was sold out. The Best Buy in Greenville, SC decided late last night to go ahead and sell them instead of shipping them back,(I just didn’t get there in time) so its possilbe that other Best Buys are making this decision as well.

      • Sarah

        With what link? I have bene trying that too and no luck

        • Aria

          hp dot com/sbso

          • Sarah

            Just Error after Error…

            • Aria

              I had no problem, it maybe because so many people are trying at the same time as you are and the website just can’t handle that amount of people. Keep trying and good luck!

            • Kh_wright

              me too.  Just error, I will keep trying as Santa would LOVE to have this for my 8 year old!

        • Hdvoss

          Got thru ebates and search hp and then choose the hp small business.

    • Craig

      got one this morning from Best Buy on Sam Rittenberg in Charleston. they had 16 and opened the store for people at 10am (opening time was 11am). i bought the 5th and there was 2 people behind me. this was at 10.15am so im sure they are all sold out

    • Gavymama

      So, hubby got the cart loaded and hit the check out button and then an error page popped up.  Now we are back on the “one moment please loading cart” page.  Ughh…I guess whatever is meant to be will be. :)

      • Jcmlcm4

        Keep trying! After numerous tries for the last 30 minutes…finally ordered! Yeah!

    • Guest

      I’m so frustrated I’ve been trying to order it for an hour and it’s giving me all sorts of error codes. I’m using my mac book, does it matter?

      • I’m using a macbook too. I’ve tried in Safari, Chrome and Firefox… I’ve made it the farthest in Firefox, but haven’t completed my order yet.

    • Amy L.

      Ok… here we go! Please read all the way through… I am in Columbia, SC (Piney Grove area) and have 3 pending charges, one which was unintentional, from HP for the 32GB Touchpad on my credit card…  I only wanted 2 and will sell the 3rd one, assuming that the order will process and the Touchpad will be sent.  The catch, it’s on my credit card (small amount of interest) and with shipping, I would be willing to sell it for $165.00…  GUARANTEED FUNDS…  CASH OR PAYPAL.  I have no intention on making any additional money off of it…  and I don’t expect you to either…   I spent MANY, MANY hours on the site (obviously) and know how frustrating it is…  If you’d like the 3rd one, assuming I DO receive it…  first post, gets it…  I don’t expect any money until I have the box in hand…  Amy

      • guest

        same here :( soooooo frustrating I’m giving up

        • I was @ a page where I entered all of my information and then got another error. I’m afraid of what page it will take me to if/when it actually loads.

    • katie

      i tried for over an hour using 4 different devices since I was receiving so many errors. Finally I got one!! WOHOOOO…good luck everyone! be persistent!

      • Miss_afb

        i got one woohoo tried for over 3 hours kept having to hit go back a page then finally a order confirmation yeah im so happy i could do a jig. but fine print says orders delayed due to processing will default to an estimated ship date 30 days drom the date credit is processed ….

    • wendyc33

      they charge you shipping though. is there a code to put in for free shipping?

    • I’m afraid that once I put in my credit card info, that I’ll get another error, and then I’ll end up getting charged several times. 

      Has that happened to anyone?

      • Amy L.

        Yep…  started out wanting one…  finally got it and cked the order status page…  it had 2 orders…  That was ok b/c hubby and I can each have our own…  Called the credit card company…  I was charged for 3…  I have someone waiting to buy the 3rd when/if its received…

        • I wonder if they’ll be pending charges that just go away… hmmm…

          • Amy L.

            I hope at least one goes through. :)  But considering I got 2 confirmations under the “order status” tab then I certainly expect to receive them…  The third is in question…  I still haven’t received an email confirmation on any of them…??  I was smart enough to print the ones from the site though, not that I’ll have a leg to stand of if they cancel them, but at least it’s some sort of documentation.  :)

            • gianella

              i havent received the email either

        • Hdvoss

          oh no.  I need to check hope that didn’t happen to me!

    • AmyQ

      has anyone seen/heard/read anywhere that HP will refund the difference price if we buy not on discount?

      • Kamnsc

         I got one from Best Buy this morning.  They said that if you purchased one after June 19th, you can get a refund.  I think HP will also do this if you purchased from elsewhere.

    • Hdvoss

      I finally got one last night after trying for hours.  I got my confirmation number and all that, but I haven’t received an email.  Has anyone else not received an email yet? 

      • Amy L.

        I haven’t received my email(s) either…

    • Gianella

      i got charged twice too when i purcharsed one. But I dont think its a BIG DEAL AT ALLL…im pretty sure it can be easily fixed w the cc company or hp…so no biggie

      • Or you might get 2!   :-)

    • She Coupons

      I am tired of this whole thing already. I appreciate the internet and communications traveling so fast to let EVERYONE know about the sale but if I can’t get in on the sale…I don’t want to know about it. All people are doing now is ripping people off on craigslist for these things. I saw one ad that said they bought it and opened it and decided they just didn’t want it so they are selling it for double what they paid for it. I’m like don’t buy something if you don’t want it. I am a firm believer in sharing product and limiting myself so others can enjoy as well.  Sorry to vent but I got real excited and just ended up wasting my time on this whole thing. 

    • Okay, I just made it thru and got the order confirmation! I guess we’ll see what happens! :-) I’m excited if I get one. 

      • Amy L.

        Good Luck!

    • Kat1890

      Just printed my order confirmation from HP small business for one. I didn’t see the free shipping, but shipping is listed as $4.29. Guess it is wait and see if it actually ever ships. I got through on the second try. No problems once I got one in my cart. New customer registration and all. 

      • I didn’t see the free shipping option either. Hopefully we all get ours!

    • Krobinson0301

      This is such a great deal BUT i can’t tell if I got i or not =) After SEVERAL attempts I THINK my order went through.  There is a charge pending on my bank account? but I haven’t gotten an email yet? What does that mean?

      Bless their hearts I bet the HP Customer Service people are swamped!

      • The confirmation page states that a ‘credit approval’ is required. I’m assuming each purchase is confirmed prior to shipment. Let’s hope we all get ours.

        • Hdvoss

          I saw that too, but they took the money right on out of my bank, so I would assume that means approved. :)  Good luck to us all.

    • saver

      well, I tried to buy this on hp’s site, but I kept getting error messages when it was time to pay…it wasn’t meant to be!  netbooks will be in my kids’ future, I think!

    • Lyndacoupon

      What is the secret for getting through? I’ve tried since yesterday and no luck! Keep getting error pages. Very frustrating and a lot of time lost!

      • Hdvoss

        It literally took me about 4hrs last night.  But at about one things went right thru.  I kept refreshing and backing up one page and it would slowly advance 1 more step.  Took forever but I got one. 

    • Hdvoss

      For those of you who have gone back on hp small business and checked your order status with your confirmation/order number, what link did you use?  I have tried a couple times now and can’t find the order status button.  I saw it last night, but can’t find it today.  I am showing two charges on my statement one for $1 for preauthorization/holding and one for the full amount. I only wanted 1 tablet and would like to know if I am getting 2, so I can go ahead and check around for someone in need of the other one. 

      • Sarah

        Well…I printed my confirmation page and went back just a second ago to check my order status and neither my e-mail address or order number I got from HP worked. I know they took the $$ from my account but I am starting to wonder if I am getting them or not!!

      • Hemlockhoneybun2005

        I will buy the extra one.  hemlockhoneybun2005@yahoo.com

        • Hdvoss

          Let you know if I can ever check my order to see if they are sending 1 or 2.

        • Hdvoss

          Finally was able to check on the order status and it is looking like I just got 1.

        No luck physically purchasing one. Called Best Buy in Knightdale at 11:10 this monring (they open at 11…) and was told they were sold out. I went there yesterday and they told me they were sending them back. They still had 2 on display so I asked if they even had those and was told No. I think thats B.S!! Finally able to get one on HP SB site but it took FOREVER !! Now with no ability to check the order status, I am wondering if I will ever get it ???

        • Manuela

          Well I am calling Amazon again and see what they say. Oh and does anyone if they also go on sale in Europe??? I could order there..

    • Guest

      Hi all,
      I just checked the HP site and it says SOLD OUT!!  FYI, yesterday, I contacted HP customer service and they stated they were all out and in fact had sold more than they had on hand.  Congrats to everyone who did receive one! 

      I was hoping to help my sister get one as her husband is deploying to Iraq in 2 days.  Her laptop has been out of commission for a few months now and video calls will be a great way for my niece and nephew to communicate with their dad while he’s gone. If you have an extra, email me at qponing09@comcast.net and I’m sure she’d be thrilled to buy it.  She was one of the ones who purchased one through Walmart, only to get an email later that said her order was cancelled as they didn’t have anymore in stock. 

    • Has ANYONE received email confirmation from the HP Small and Medium Business Website?  Not the confirmation that you receive on the site after your order… I got that…  but have you gotten anything in your personal email confirming your purchase?

      • Sarah

        No

      • Sarah

        Have you checkef your status order?

        • Amy L.

          Yes, it says that it’s been approved and has been sent to “order management…”

        Hey Amy! No email confirmation here yet either, but I did look at my acct and they DID charge my card! So idk what that means but hpoefully we’ll actually get them and not get a refund. I”m going to check my order status now.

        • Amy L.

          Good luck… I have been keeping track of the stages it goes through…  First it was “waiting for credit approval” or something like that…  Now it tells me that it’s “approved and being sent to order management…”  So it’s seems like it’s moving through the pipeline…  I sure hope so!  I actually got charged for 3 but can only find 2 order confirmations! 

          • Hdvoss

            What web address are you going to to check the order
            status?

              http :// h71016 dot www7 dot hp dot com/ home dot asp?oi=E9CDE&BEID=19701&SBLID=

              Not sure what part of a link makes it have to be approved but smush that address all together and use a period in the place on “dot” and it should take you there…

            My order is now “approved and being sent to order management” !

        • AmyQ

          I can’t figure out how to check my status. I went to HP SB site, clicked on “Smartphones and Handhelds”, then clicked on “order status” at the top, then I can’t figure out how to search my order. I entered my order number into all the fields and tried both aug 20th and aug 21st for the order dates. But i keep getting “no records found”. am i looking in the right spot?

          • Sarah

            Thats what mine is saying so I am wondering what that means?!?!

          • Amy L.

            I found that there are 2 HP Small and Medium Business websites…
            The one you want is  http://h71016.www7.hp.com/home.asp?oi=E9CED&BEID=19701&SBLID=
            The “Order Status” button should be on the left hand side of the page…
            You just have to enter your email and password and it will pull it up…

          • Amy L.

            There are two sites…  that’s the wrong one…  I sent a link as a reply but it has to be approved by a moderator before it can be posted…  Do you want me to send it to you in an email?

            • AmyQ

      I got lucky again. I was able to get 2 more one for a birthday present and the other a christmas. It took me at bestbuy 30 mins before opening and my husband across the street at hhgregg. We never get lucky. Im happy. 

    • Carrie

      I only wanted 2 and I think I may have 6 32G HP Touchpads. I kept trying to order at SB HP website and I would get to the last page and get an error message. So I would page back and start again.  Well I went to my Bank online and they have billed my account 323.00 3 times.  I am going to call to see if I can cancel the two orders since I only want 2.  If there is anyone in the Fort Mill SC area that would like to buy 2 I will only cancel one of the orders.  This is crazy.  I to haven’t received e-mail but they have taken the funds from my account.    Thanks!  Carrie

        Carrie, If you do buy 6, I’d like 2, but would settle for one! lol!

        Carrie, If you do buy 6, I’d like 2, but would settle for one! lol!

      • Carrie

        If I should get all 6 I would sell 4 of them at the price that I paid I am not looking to make any money.  They are 32G and 2 with tax and shipping from HP was 323.50.  I only wanted 2 to start out with.  Those who are interested would need to come to Fort Mill SC/Charlotte to pick up or make other arrangements with me.  I am still waiting for a e-mail confirmation from HP.

        • Kim

          I am not in your area but I would be willing to send you payment thru paypal (including shipping) if you could ship to me. I only need one but would buy 2…

          Hi Carrie I am right down the road in Mooresville and would love to have one.  I was online for 2 hours got all the way to entering my credit card info.  Hit the button to confirm and couldn’t get anywhere else. Left it processing for over an hour. I was afraid if I hit the back button it would charge me more than once.  I did hit refresh several times and didn’t get anywhere. Send me an email at rgnthompson@yahoo.com if you get more than one and I can meet up with you with cash.  Keeping my fingers crossed this works out.  I really would like one.

      • Jatimmons

        I would definitlet take both..I live 40 minutes from Fort Mill and would be glad to pick them up. jatimmons@ngu.edu

        I had the same problem yesterday.  I had gotten an internet error message just when it was done verifying my credit card.  I attempted to get in touch with HP customer service because I never received a confirmation, but they had charged my card.  This morning I received my confirmation.  It might take a day for you to get the notification.

        Hi, Carrie.  I desperately wanted to get 2 of these for my daughter and my Uncle who is sick and unable to get out.  If you get extras I would be so grateful for 2.  I will pay to have them shipped to me in Alabama.  My email is bjett1974@yahoo.com Thanks!  Selena

      Can you still get apps for these?   Do the apps cost extra?   I have no idea how this works…   I am sure someone out there knows. 

    • Olemissmoss

      I posted yesterday but I will post it again. Alot of you seemed bummed out that you cannot find it for $99. Office Depot sells them for $399…The reason this is awesome is becuase they price match Samsclub.com which has them listed at $99. Becuase Office Depot still has them listed at the full retail price, they probably will not sell out. This can be your little secret. So go to Office Depot and have them price match the Samsclub.com price of $99.

    • Kim

      If anyone was fortunate enough to get an extra one and want to sell at their cost I am willing to buy… My email is kimlove2ebaywmconnect.com

      I just ordered 2 from  cost central.  I get an immediate email confirmation and they limit 2 per person.  Seemed much more reliable then the experience I had getting 1 from HP small business.

      • Haileeelaine

        were they the 16 or 32 GB? is cost central a seller off of Amazon?

          they had both, not sure how many.  Not sure if they also sell on amazon I order from their website costcentraldotcom

          Me either.  I see $149 tablet that is “smart buy snapdragon”.  It also has hp touchpad in the name. I don’t think its the same but not sure.

    • Mandy

      They are being sold through OnSale on Amazon. Is that where those of you ordering from Amazon are getting them? I really, really hope it’s real :-)

    • Meme

      ok so we got one from amazon and i see a bunch of people here have and i have called friends who got them, but my question is should i be nervous it still says 27 available? is this too good too be true?  i know at least that many people have gotten them. i dont do a lot of amazon shopping so since i got an email does that mean there will be one at my door for sure?

      • Daisypark

        i think it says 27 from $149.  It shows 27 stores that you can order them from, with onSale being the cheapest.  I don’t think it means that onSale only has 27 in stock….

        • Lyndacoupon

          I just tried to buy again from the same site I had before just a few minutes ago and it says the seller is out ($99 deal). There are others listed at higher prices. I’d switch over and try the cost central place.

    • AmyQ

      I am so tempted to buy one off amazon in case hp falls through. what do you guys think?

      • AmyQ

        For those of us that got them from HP – what do you think the likelihood is that we’ll actually see our touchpads?

    • Basket411

      I found it on amazon but the product # is a little different.  The one I see on Amazon is FB356UT and the one listed on HP is FB359UA

      • AmyQ

        Product numbers are usually different and vary by store. Different stores like to package things differently, or they like to have different barcodes so that other stores wont be able to “price match.” I wouldnt worry about that.

        • Basket411

          Thanks.  I did go to HP and see that Snapdragon is the name of the processor or something.  That was throwing me off.

        • Basket411

          Google it–Amazon, OnSale, also put in Snapdragon. There were still 15 or so left. I looked all over the Amazon site for “on sale” and “deals” but this other idea is completely separate.

      Thank you for your interest in the HP TouchPad

      HP Small and Medium Business Customers

      We have received unprecedented orders as a result of the
      tremendous discount offered. This is clear confirmation to HP there is huge
      interest in building a webOS community. We apologize for any difficulty you may
      have had in ordering on the web or through the phone this weekend; it was as a
      result of selling out of our current inventory. 

       

      Your order has been captured and you should receive a confirmation
      over the next 48 hours. 

       

      Additionally, some of our customers may have experienced a pricing
      error while purchasing on August 20th and 21st. We are in the process of
      ensuring every order is honored at the discounted price and will send you
      confirmation via email. 

       

      Should you have any questions, we can be contacted at 1 800 888
      5858 option 1: Though we are expecting significant call volumes with extended
      wait times over the next 48 hours, we ask for your patience and we are
      committed to our relationship with you and to delivering the best technology
      solutions for you and your business. 

       

      Sincerely,

      Your HP Small and Medium Business Team

        You know, I thought this might be a ploy to dump their inventory but also see if there was enough interest to keep it alive.  So this lends further credibility to the rumors I’ve been reading that the Touchpad isn’t necessarily dead but may have a new Android OS available later this year (although HP spent a LOT of $$ buying Palm – which is where the webOS came from).

        Oh and for anyone confused about the “snapdragon” processor – that’s just the name (like AMD Phenom or Intel i7).  The processor is made by Qualcomm – they are one of the largest mobile chip-makers in the world.

        So it sounds like if you managed to get your order placed they’ll be making more to fill all orders if they actually run out of current inventory.  Congrats to everyone who got one and good luck if you’re still looking (looks like the Amazon prices are back to normal).

          Me, too – ORDERED CANCELED & I ordered before midnight last night.  
          I agree with you.  They should’ve taken the items down that were out of stock – instead, they sold me an HP Touchpad that they DID NOT EVEN HAVE – and took my money from Paypal …. sent me a confirmation e-mail – and then confirmed again this morning on the telephone that my order was confirmed.I got my cancellation e-mail late this afternoon – but guess what – they still have my money!  Barnes & Noble BN is a notoriously deceptive .com seller.  They’ve gotten me before but surely I believed they’d gotten their act together.  Boy, was I wrong.  They won’t get me again!
          I’m going to the store tomorrow to get my money back – since they won’t even answer the telephone.

      So how did people who ordered after me get them????????

      Dear Valued Customer,

      We are writing to you regarding your recent Barnes & Noble order for “HP TouchPad Tablet with 16GB Memory”.

      Due to unexpected customer demand for this item, our inventory was
      depleted prior to your order being processed so we are unable to fulfill
      this item as requested. Consequently, we have canceled your order and
      you will not be billed for this amount.

      You may see an authorization on your credit or debit card for the order,
      but please be assured you will not be charged. The authorization will
      be released in accordance with your bank’s policies.

      We sincerely regret any inconvenience that this may have caused.

      Sincerely,

      Barnes & Noble

      I am kind of mad at Barnes & Noble.  They could’ve atleast took the items down if the stock was depleted.  I bought one thinking I was getting it until now.  I could’ve been looking the rest of the day, but I stopped because I assumed I got one from B&N.  Disappointed in the company.  Atleast Best Buy put “Sold Out” as soon as they were sold out.  Also, it is horrible people are ebay selling these things for double the price, and people are actually bidding on them.

      My DH placed an order for 1 with HP Small Business yesterday (8/21) around 1:00pm and printed the order confirmation. He has not received any type of communication from HP.  WE are hoping that he gets an email confirmation soon!

      • I got an e-mail that said they would be e-mailing confirmations in 24-72 hours. I am under the impression if you were able to get through HPs site, they will honor the price. When? Who knows, but according to the post they have on the site now, they are trying to process the TON of orders they have gotten in a timely manner but they will get one to you…That is at least my take on their posting (wishful thinking maybe?!)

          HP Small and Medium Business are sending out the emails.  I ordered my touchpad around 1AM Sunday morning.  I received my confirmation email at 9:35PM on Sunday.  I didn’t check it until Monday morning though.  It said we’ll get a second email when the items ship.  It gave a link for me to check my status and said that it will ship 8/27/11.  This is the link in the email, order statusFYI, press CTRL and click on link.  See if you can check your order status this way.  But, they are definitely sending out emails.  I hope this makes you feel better.

        the hp site is saying that the small business has no more at all and will not be getting anymore. They could not fill the orders that they had.

            SMB store: Not more inventory. Donzies. Finito. Empty. Bye Bye. Will do best to fulfill orders that have been rec’d. But no new orders. This is a quote from hp on my twitter page. but it does say they will do there best to fulfill all previous orders. did not notice that. Good luck.

        • This is on the HP site:

          Due to the significant price reduction, we experienced overwhelming demand for the product and are temporarily out of inventory.

          and this is on the Small Business site:

          We have received unprecedented orders as a result of the tremendous discount offered. This is clear confirmation to HP there is huge interest in building a webOS community. We apologize for any difficulty you may have had in ordering on the web or through the phone this weekend; it was as a result of selling out of our current inventory. Your order has been captured and you should receive a confirmation over the next 48 hours. Additionally, some of our customers may have experienced a pricing error while purchasing on August 20th and 21st. We are in the process of ensuring every order is honored at the discounted price and will send you confirmation via email.

      Keep in mind folks – if you ordered direct from HP even if they don’t have one in stock they could actually make you one (unlike other sources who, obviously, get them from HP).  I would say just keep in touch with them and keep checking your order status either by web or phone.

      For everyone else who didn’t get one I would say keep your eyes and ears open – something tells me this will not be the last opportunity to get one of these at a great price before Christmas.  I know it’s frustrating but keep it in perspective, take some deep breaths, do some yoga, whatever to keep calm and keep hunting for the deal.

If they get more order then they had, they will cancel them as well. I got a cancellation letter for one of my orders because it was placed on Monday. They said ONLY those that ordered on Saturday and Sunday will be getting them. Any orders after that EVEN on the HP site will be cancelled!!

        HP Small and Medium Business is starting to scare me. My order status said estimated ship date 8/23/11.  But, I hadn’t received a shipping email so I just called HP.  I was told that the warehouse does not actually know how many touchpads they actually have.  They won’t start shipping the touchpads for another 2-3 weeks if you ordered last weekend.  They may not have enough to fulfill all of the orders that were made August 21-22.  If they run out of touchpads, some of us will be receiving cancellation emails.  This whole thing has just been a whirlwind for me.  I hope they are able to fulfill all of our orders.  But, I guess I can stop looking for the delivery truck now.

    • Anybody order from HP small business get theirs in yet?  Mine says Est shipping date 9/26 Est delivery date 9/26.  Tried checking the tracking info, says no tracking info available.  Getting worried this is a surprise for my husbands birthday next week!

      • Well, after being routed to several different numbers (and emails)I finally got a good number to check my status and it looks like I should have gotten free shipping, but was charged $21.87 for shipping.  Will have to make a call on Monday to get that refunded.  BUT the good news is my touchpad should be here before Friday! Right in time for hubby’s birthday!!  Yippy.  So here are the numbers I got if anyone else needs them.  To check on the status 1-800-888-0262 for refund of shipping charge 1-800-888-0292 option #3.

          Thanks for posting the numbers that helped you!  My order says it is scheduled to ship on 9/6, so I will call tomorrow to see if that is accurate.  So glad yours will be in for a surprise…mine is “Santa” for my son.  Thanks again!

          • Ooops.  Meant that mine said it would ship 8/26.  It didn’t.  I still hadn’t received it today nor a shipping email.  Or able to see any tracking information. So, I have called HP again today.To be told that 1)they are “honestly” completely out.  Have sent out all they have.  Are expecting to received more back to there warehouses in a couple of weeks.  So it will be at least 3 weeks before any more are shipped out. They do not know how many the will be getting back, so they may not even be able to fill my order that was done well before their cut off of 4am monday 2) in the same breath as above was told that I wouldn’t be charged for my tablet until it does ship.  When I pointed out that hp has put a new hold on my account thatit is set to release for tomorrow.  Therefore charging me tomorrow for the tablet, does that mean mine is indeed set to ship tomorrow?????? Guy told me know that I shouldn’t actually be charged tomorrow as they have none to ship and I wouldn’t be charged til it ships. 
             If I hadn’t already ordered accessories for this thing off of ebay (nonrefundable) I would totally cancel this order with them.  I am SO VERY UPSET.  This was supposed to be for my husbands birthday which is Sunday.  This STINKS!!

      I will supposedly receive my HP touchpad mid Sept.  What is the most cost effective means of operating it?  We currently have Time Warner Cable internet service.  Do we need to purchase a wireless router, “airport”, new plan or what?  Thanks for any help you can give.  Not tech savy at all!!

      • Anonymous

        A wireless router would be best because I doubt they have the ethernet/modem cable that will attach to the touchpad. Most tablets are meant to carried rather stationary like a PC or laptop. I wouldn’t upgrade your service unless of course it dial-up otherwise DSL/high speed should work fine with your new wireless router.

Otherwise, you are looking at 2, 4, 6, or 8 weeks before getting the order.” I asked if they could tell me what catagory my order fell in and they said NO! So the wait continues…

      HP Small and Medium Business Customer,

      Thank you for your interest in webOS and the HP TouchPad – the
      response to our price reduction has been overwhelming – both in terms of
      volume and in the energy and enthusiasm it has generated in our
      customers.

      It has taken us longer than anticipated to work through the high
      volume of orders that were received. We apologize for any uncertainty
      this caused, but we are now in a position to understand our ability to
      fulfill your order.

      Your order will be fulfilled at the discounted price. However, we do
      not have enough stock to satisfy your order at this time. It will take
      6-8 weeks to build enough HP TouchPads to meet our current commitments,
      during which time your order will then ship from this stock with free
      ground shipping. You will receive a shipping notification with tracking
      number once your order has shipped. We apologize that these timelines
      are longer than indicated on the website at time of purchase.

      At the significantly reduced price, the HP TouchPad does not qualify for our standard 30 day return policy and is not returnable.

      If this delay is not acceptable, please send an email to TouchPadCancel@hpDOTcom
      with your instructions for cancellation within a week. Be sure to
      include your HP order number and the name and ship-to address on the
      order. Also please indicate clearly if this is the only order requiring
      cancellation or if you wish all orders in your name to be canceled. You
      will receive an automated cancel notification when your order
      cancellation request has been processed. Please be aware, however, that
      cancellations cannot be reversed, and our US SMB store has sold out of
      HP TouchPad and will not make any further available for sale.  

      We are pleased that we will be able to fulfill your order and look forward to you joining the exciting community of webOS!

      Sincerely,

      Your HP Small and Medium Business Team

        It’s always nice when you go through the folks who actually make the item – they can always decide to make more!  Glad it worked out.

        If anyone is still waiting on theirs and has decided they don’t want it I would be interested in one.  Didn’t manage to get one originally because I hemhawed around about it.

          Hi Chris. Lookout on craigslist for the touchpads.  HP supposedly sold the last batch of touchpads to their employees.  On the Charlotte craigslist, 32gb touchpads are being sold for $160.

            Thanks for the info!  I think I’m going to go with one of the new Android-based pads.  They have the larger screen size and can use multiple browsers for Internet access.  I’m going to possibly get one for work so need to be able to connect to those resources – which I can do with Android but not with webOS (which is what the HP pad uses).  Thanks for thinking of me though!!

              You’re welcome!  I’m glad you were able to find something that will work for you.

        I got the same email yesterday, at least it looks like they will eventually ship to us!

      Slow to see this. Are there any still out there? I can’t find one.

      I received an email from HP Small Business that my HP Touchpad is shipping by RPS (never heard of this shipper) today!  RPS website says it takes 4 to 10 business days to complete shipment.

      Anyone else get any info on shipping?

      • Susannenelson

        Yes I did and I found out that RPS is Federal Express so you can go to their website and track your order. My touchpad shipped on Monday and the website said it is scheduled for delivery on Thursday

          Thank you!!!  Mine is scheduled for delivery on Friday. And since it is Fed Ex, the driver will call me to meet him or her at the end of the driveway…the vehicle can’t make it up our steep drive. 

          Now after all this waiting….I hope we will enjoy using them.
