do you know when they might go on sale in the US?

vote-for5vote-against

I seriously think that if I can get one for $99 I will pick one up in a heartbeat. Ive been looking for a cheap tablet for my 5 year old since he keeps trying to play with my Android Tablet. This might actually do it.

vote-for4vote-against

they just announced that they were killing off the mobile webos.... so its going to be real cheap real soon

vote-for0vote-against

They'll probably be gone before lunch tomorrow. It would make for a nice paperweight...

vote-for1vote-against

Amazon.com has already price matched them through, they're sold through Target!

EDIT: When I try to add it to my cart, it keeps saying $398 though....

vote-for-1vote-against

Yeah def worth the money even if it's a paper wait haha can't wait...ps target has them too

vote-for1vote-against

@aobfrost: Same here, give it a couple minutes. Maybe at midnight

vote-for2vote-against

Saw the updated price for an instant... still regular in cart tho. Exciting!

vote-for0vote-against

Anybody try newegg I know they sell them..

vote-for2vote-against

If you have an HP Academy account you can get it from there. Additionally, you can use coupon code SAVE15HP to get an additional $15 off.

vote-for0vote-against

@locoskier78: Is it $99 at HP Academy? Minus the $15?!?!

vote-for1vote-against

@bigcbass: Prolly why amazon's price jumped back up :(

vote-for1vote-against

Grabbed one before they sold out by Target via Amazon. Price changed, and they were sold out real quick!

vote-for1vote-against

Best Buy is said to have over 200,000 in stock.

vote-for4vote-against

Damn... I would have been all over this. WebOS was is by far the best mobile OS. It's a shame that HP is throwing in the towel so soon.

vote-for1vote-against

Amazon as of 11PM, now $300 through computergear.

vote-for3vote-against

It is kind of sad that this thing is going to sell like crazy only after it was officially "killed."

Still, I'm in for some carrion. Will be anxiously hitting F5 once it gets close to midnight EST.

vote-for1vote-against

@dman244: Yes. Which comes out to a cool $90 with free shipping. Buy this thing now.

vote-for0vote-against

best buy shows these sold out in the us already at $399

vote-for2vote-against

Not seeing it for $99 on HP Academy. I see it for $379 there.

vote-for1vote-against

Im getting $399? Where are you guys seeing that price?

vote-for1vote-against

@iamnotreal2u: Getting ready for midnight maybe? Wait and see I suppose.

vote-for1vote-against

@iamnotreal2u: Just the 16, still have the 32.... This is weird. I just want to get a couple and go to bed.

vote-for1vote-against

What are the cons of it being discontinued? Is the TouchPad good?

vote-for1vote-against

AT HP it says 16 GB is out of stock now!

vote-for1vote-against

Best Buy USA shows sold out too....but BB Canada has them for $99 but wont ship to USA.

vote-for2vote-against

You think it's possible to wipe this thing and run an android OS?

vote-for1vote-against

Just went to $299 on amazon

@kalfred02: There were talks back in the early days of beta and pre-production models running android 3.0 honeycomb, I think with time and hacking skills, someone will find a way.

vote-for0vote-against

sigh I'm on hold with HP now HAHA. I called prior to the "out of stock" on their site. I'll let you guys know what happens. :P

vote-for2vote-against

@iamnotreal2u: Just saw this as well. I'm tempted to call a local Walmart and ask if they can confirm or deny (or have no knowledge) about the price drop. If it is confirmed in-store, then I'm guessing things are getting ready to explode. If it is confirmed false in store, maybe just a bad rumor going along with the Best Buy Canada sell-off. Unconfirmed would have me mashing F5 come midnight. Confirmed true, and I might have to be waiting in-store at midnight.

@aobfrost: hence the frenzy right now. I'd love one of these running Android.

@bigcbass: True, but that's just one store. I'm guessing that's good evidence, they're trying to squeeze some dollars before everything plummets in price. Just checked again, looks like those four sold. The company made their extra bucks.

vote-for2vote-against

What's the link on Amazon?

vote-for1vote-against

@iamnotreal2u: Call and ask...I would be interested to know. Is it midnight eastern time?

vote-for2vote-against

There's no way there sold out. They had 200,000 lying around. If you wait till Midnight HP Academy will have them on discount of $99, probably 5% and then take $15 off with coupon code SAVE15HP then get 5% cashback on that and you got yourself a sweet, sweet deal.

$99-5%=94.05 (HP Academy Discount)

$94.05-$15=79.05 (SAVE15HP Coupon Code)

$79.05-5%=75.09 (eBates cashback- http://www.ebates.com/rf.do?referrerid=y9p1lxfffY5nGaSBYRTxtQ%3D%3D)

Total price of $75.09 shipped. That is a slick deal.

vote-for1vote-against

@bigcbass: Another 40 minutes, it'll be midnight in Eastern time.

vote-for1vote-against

Great question! I will have to make sure to ask. Now I have been on hold for about 20 mins, maybe? Terrible hold music, they should just send me one for being such a trooper!

vote-for2vote-against

HP Academy, do I have to be a student?

vote-for0vote-against

so has anyone confirmed that these will be $99 at walmart in store at midnight?

vote-for4vote-against

Hah. Called Wally World, the woman that answered the phone either hates her job, or has had a lot of people already ask and has been told to not answer. She said "I don't know... I don't know..." in this really defeated tone. Sorry, can't confirm this true or false off of at least the one store I called.

vote-for1vote-against

@apfrehm: ya I just called walmart and they siad they hadnt heard anything about it

vote-for2vote-against

@iggz: It's pretty lenient. Here's from the hp site;

"The HP Academy is intended for students, educators, alumni, former students and parents of students associated with eligible K-12 and higher education institutions. Educators includes instructors, faculty, and school and district staff, administration, and officials at all levels. The list of eligible institutions was compiled using the following guidelines"

So pretty much anyone qualifies.

vote-for1vote-against

Shows completely sold on Best Buy online AND in store. You think they are holding back before the sale or are people buying them now then asking to get the price matched/adjusted after the sale hits?

vote-for1vote-against

Pickup only. Canada Only. Grrrrr...
