Anyone else feel like "I really don't need one of these?" but thinks "damn, i should really get a slice while the pizza's hot!" ?

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

@keithzeto: It's not a venture. You bought something in short supply that others could have bought. Now they got none, you got two, and you're trying to profit on your luck and their misfortune. Those trying to make a quick buck suck.

@dman244: I'm EST. I originally saw the $499 price, but I hit the 'HP' logo at the top left corner (basically starting over) and navigated to the tablets. I think the tablet overview page still showed regular price, but when I hit the 32GB page it showed $149.99.

@divyamistry: No he's probably having some massive argument right about now, they're telling him now that he's there they can't honor the price for whatever reason. Then he's like... "But I JUST called up here and you said you would!!!" --- "Well sir I don't know, that was the new-hire Lashondaretha, she's still learning." --- "I don't care, I want my *#$#) tablet!"

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.

@thudleeh: You should stop by Borders after Circuit City to see if they have any deals as well.

the worst part about this walmart experience is that the electronics guy specifically told me that if it's a competing store, and I can show that their site has that price, then there should be no reason they wouldn't do the price match and sell it to me...Unfortunately he was on lunch break when i got there and the manager on duty was a wimpy asshole who gets by in life by expecting to never have to actually do anything like help a customer. Instead he gave me the run around about it not being the same product and then pretending he didn't have them and then pretending he didn't know where they were. And can someone explain the logic of being able to do a price match if it were $20 cheaper but not $350...as though there were some clause in their PM guarantee that said we guarantee to price match UNLESS the manager on duty is too gutless to actively make a decision in the store.

vote-for5vote-against

FINALLY. Yes, I have been checking for this since 11:30ish; it's now 5:00am and I have finally found these darn things. Had to wait for Walmart to lower the price and choose in-store pickup. The closest store to me did not have these reduced so I had to go with a different, but still close store. No kidding I have been refreshing about 18 tabs every 5 minutes or so. Hope this thing is worth all the trouble!

vote-for5vote-against

got mine at office depot. there were only 4 available and there were four of us in line. as the doors were being opened a fat middle age guy jumped out of his car and came barreling toward the doors, pushed passed us all and ran into the tablet aisle. I calmly asked the manager who opened the door for the tablets, he unlocks a closet and places them on the register. I'm finishing up my purchase and fat guy runs up 'ARE THESE THE TABLETS? HOW MANY ARE THERE?' To which manager says 'Four.' Fatty goes 'And you all in line for it? SONOFABITCH!'

@squirrelonfire: You know that you can walk out to the street with a cardboard sign that says "HP Touchpad for $225 cash" and be out there less than 5 minutes before it was sold. But, you would rather have waited on the phone with HP for an RMA number and plug the $500 iPad 2? I think someone isn't being forthright about their apple fanboy status and trying to make a statement.

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

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.

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-for4vote-against

I can navigate between both pages; HP part: EPP00FB359UA#ABA is the 474.99 one and HP part: FB359UA#ABA is 149.99. Maybe this will help someone?

edit: if you've got academy, try deleting the EPP00 from the url

Office Depot better hurry up and either drop their prices ASAP or drop that ad...looks like false advertising to me.

If we ever get a port of Android or Windows 7 on these, they will become valuable with the ports on ebay.

Don't forget before they released this, hp was using it to show off their windows 7 tablet but then they bought palm so I wouldn't be shocked to find somebody running windows on one of these bad boys.

I'd like to thank everyone for being so helpful for me and everyone else. I was just able to get mine on Office Depot. So excited! Thank you again. You guys are wonderful :)

Just saw "More Than 10" available in the Datavis store on eBay. $120 for 16gb, $170 for 32gb. If you can't get into their site and still want one, get it from them on ebay. $6+ shipping.
