Solid Tablet for $99, just plan on zero support going forward and no new apps written.

+ Preware = I just reserved one.

was about to update my phone since i've got an OG Droid but for $99 for a tablet I think I'll hold off until the phone breaks/gets lost and try this out instead.

Worth it to buy one and strap it permanently to back of a head rest for the kids. No more fighting over the 2 iPads we have

$99 is definitely a steal ... plus ... it DOES run flash, so thats something that I might see myself using for streaming tv shows on megavideo.com without having to download them.

Any hacked versions out there yet?

extra 30 off if you buy with a code on HP.com ... through EPP.

Comes out, shipped, to be 181, including taxes ... Sorry .. thats the price for 2 ... I decided to get 2.

If nothing else, now two of the 3 rugrats can keep their grubby hands off my ipad and pretend that they have their own tablet.

I bought 2 16GB as well through HP EPP for 181.

One will go to mom for her to do email/skype/www and one will stay with me for playing around on. Obviously not a replacement for my ipad2, but I am curious to see what the dev community is able to do to this thing.

I am wondering if HP has killed that 2727 epp code that someone posted in the slickdeals forum. I used my actual one and it works. (still showing up online right now for the record.)

oh ok, yeah i used that 2727


how do you get your own EPP code, or do you have to pay for some service (like amazon prime, etc)

or is it just a discount related to your employer...

Apparently it was an Army EPP. And people are trolling Slickdeals saying prision involved with it.

I almost want to cancel mine and just go to the store tomorrow and get it now as it's taking forever to be processed....

So what it appears people did on the Touchpad for Best Buy is buy them online for store pickup and tomorrow it will be price matched. Personally I don't think they should be able to do that

They didn't care on the phone about the EPP, so whatever. I said I had my issue and the guy was like nah that's okay no worries. Probably didn't care hahah

So I bought one of these two weeks ago when it was $200 just to sell...that went to shit quick when they made the $100 discount permanent. Was still hoping to make a few bucks off it anyhow, but definitely going to return it tomorrow...thank God I still have the receipt. Thinking of buying one at the discounted price, but Id much prefer a Transformer...

I looked at the thread on slickdeals and it said pretty much everywhere they had found it for $99 is sold out.

Office Depot has it for $129 (sold out online, but available locally)

Went to Wal-Mart in Apex, bought the last 32GB one (they only had 2 in general). I had 75 dollars in AMEX gift cards. So grand total after tax for 32GB was 84 dollar bucks!

Has anyone who bought it from HP gotten confirmed or denied the deal?

Yeah, I had to wait around at Wal-Mart this morning for them to update the price. The guy was skeptical about it, saying we just dropped the price to 399 and 499 the other day. I said, I'll just hang around in case something comes out as this was supposed to be a system wide HP sales thing. 2 minutes later he went to check his email and his gun got the updated price of 150 and I bought it. When he scanned it before the email came out (around 8am) it originally came up as 499. It's pretty fun so far, but a lot of apps seem to run emulator style with a Pre in the center of the screen.

if they ship them all back to HP, does that mean that HP.com will get more in stock to sell?
