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.

More news regarding it...
Very interesting story on 9to5 Mac today, the day that HP announced that it is scrapping its TouchPad tablet, all about how, according to HP sources speaking to The Next Web, when Hewlett-Packard engineers hacked an iPad 2 and installed their own webOS on it, they found that it ran more than twice as fast on the iPad 2 than on the TouchPad! According to the report, the discovery was

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...
