@kbree: Long enough for you to run to WalMart for the rest of us and check when they are going to price drop!

Any apps for these things? Can you use music downloaded from i tunes?

@amyb3641: Gone now :D

Was there an entire genesis of a deal in like 2 hours? Did I miss the birth and death of this thing?

Can anybody fill me in on the situation here?

Did this come and go already? Or are some people still playing by westcoast time, and haven't started yet?

Better be fast when you find it, The Wiz sold out before I could finish with my shopping cart.

@davesempai: So you're saying we won't really know if our order will be fulfilled until Saturday evening?

crap.... any more link at all

i miss out on this

They don't usually do in-store price drops like this though, do they? Not unless it's like a single item that's 5 years old that they found shoved between two desks in the store room...

Just ordered one through thewiz.com (32GB for $150). Seems to have worked - got a confirmation email, and my bank is showing the charge.

vote-for2vote-against

just got mine at the wiz.com and order confirmed via email. :-)

omg, just went back to the site since folks have seen "sold out." it's back up to $499. crazy.

@davesempai: I suppose you braved customer support? What are your sources on this?

@iamnotreal2u: They sold out via EPP codes. Lots of peeps used military code. Will be interesting to see what happens with that!

I haven't ordered from The Wiz before and don't want to deal with a new retailer just for this deal. I placed the order on HP's site for one of the 32GB ones, so we'll see if I get an email confirmation at some point. My bank account hasn't been charged yet.

They might have enough inventory to fill the orders that were placed before it went OOS or they might not. If they don't then maybe it wasn't meant to be for me.

This is one of the best deals I've seen on deals.woot though, great job.

vote-for2vote-against

I tried to place orders for 2x32gb versions everywhere. I'm going to wake up tomorrow and see how many orders come through on these sites with delay :) Right now only one confirmation from thewiz. That's what I get for taking 5 minutes to text my brother about this.

The best news about this deal? WebOS will live on with all kinds of geeks hw-ing up :) Open source that bastard, HP. Let's roll.

RE: eBay

edit : and, in that millisecond, he raised the price to $299. Still less than $499, though.

FYI: Retail stores are said to go live @ 7am EST Good luck!

slickdeals-net has a detailed wiki on it. Worth checking if you want one.

vote-for1vote-against

@wilcononomous: Good call. Hope all those who held out will get one. At least now, those doubters out there will realize it's the real thing.

vote-for1vote-against

Hmm, limited availability for my local Office Depot. Methinks I might be taking a trip there first thing in the morning. That would be a safeguard in case my HP order doesn't go through, and if it does happen to go through then I can sell the 2nd one for a bit of profit.

This is a great deal.. I think You'll still be able to get apps in the future for the WEBOS and it will be good for kids and surfing the net and eating different flavors of Ice Cream!

@intuitionx2: can you link to the slickdeals-net wiki?

@drchops: Just call me Applesauce but you are right you probably can't get one at 99/199 until midnight.. Is it worth staying up for something that won't have updates, that won't have apps?

vote-for1vote-against

@c9espresso: There are apps, but not many. You can play music from iTunes.

I just called McDonalds, they said their McChicken Sandwiches are always .99 cents.

@joebrooks, is that the 16gb McChicken or the 32?

vote-for1vote-against

my goal would be to port another OS on it if webOS ultimately dies. either way 99/149 for a decent tablet? i'll snatch one up when i can
