    It's a great deal. I got the last one at my local Staples. There's already a team together to port over Honeycomb too.

    If you're able to find one and it turns out to be a demo unit, do not buy it, it's useless as demo units cannot sign up for a webOS account. I had to learn this the hard way.

    But I might head out tomorrow morning to get a new one at Best Buy now that they're selling off their inventory. I played with it for a bit with the demo software still on and it really isn't bad.

    Best Buy is sending all of their units back to HP. I tried to buy another one there to sell but was met with a big flyer announcing the decision.

    So you were in store and they refused the sale? I was hopping to run out to Best Buy at lunch tomorrow and try to get one. Too cheap to pass up.

    BestBuy is actually going to sell them last I heard and are selling them right now at the lowered price. I picked one up from HP on Friday night when the word first got out :)

    I was at the store entrance and about a minute before opening they taped the announcement to the glass. I didn't pursue it past that.

    I pulled the trigger a few minutes ago at B&N as well. I've been talking about getting a tablet for a while and couldn't pass up a $100 one.

    After having this thing for a bit a charging dock really isn't necessary. Buy a 'leather' case from Ebay and that's all you need. The charging dock is way too expensive for what it is.

    Oh man, B&N is apparently randomly canceling orders, and I got hit. I was one of the first to buy too, and got several emails saying they approved my order and were getting ready to ship it, but I got the cancellation email this morning...
