Well hopefully you will get yours soon. :w00t: I wish I had been able to buy one but oh well. There is always ebay. Of course the price will be double or close to it :">

Speaking of, my cousin's boyfriend bought one of the 16gb tablets and he loves it. I have not seen him or the tablet yet but I did try to offer him $200 and he would not sell. This guy knows nothing about computers so explaining the downsides of the software and rooting would be a waste of his and my time.

I think your best bet may be to go to the HP site and sign up to be notified if any will be available.Most of the info I saw on slickdeals indicated that many orders from other retailers were cancelled, unless you were one of the first few.Adam

I am still waiting for mine... my order is still valid. I think I am closing in on the 6-8 week window that HP claimed. I see an authorization pop up on my credit card every now and again, so I know I am still on the list.C'mon HP! Ship these things out!Adam

I was just thinking of asking you if you have heard anything from HP. Well I hope you can get the device you already paid for soon. This is getting a bit ridiculous IMHO and is why I will never preorder anything.

Well, my card has not been charged, but it has been authorized a few times. Last time I look at HP's site, they were pushing the ship date back steadily.

Well I hope you get your device soon but by the sound of it, I would not hold your breath waiting on it.
