I ordered 2 through HP a 16gb and 32 gb, and 2 (16gb) through onsale. I hope I get atleast one of them. I only wanted 1 for myself, lol


What do you think the resale prices on these would be?

Edit:The HP website says they have been approved...

I have a palm pre phone I'm just a little worried that they might shut down their cloud service which stores your profile (contacts, etc.). On device first setup and if you ever have to reset your phone it makes you sign into a profile or register for a profile, if they take that down everyone could end up SOL as devices cannot be used without first signing into a profile.

I based my purchase on the chance(strong chance) that android will be ported over to it.

I need to read more about the hurdles in getting honeycomb on it being that its designed for a different OS but from what I read has the same guts as modern android tablets.

If my 2nd one comes in for my girl its going to be BJ week

I think at least half the people who bought them had android on their minds. I am hoping by the time mine gets here(if it does) I may never even boot into palmOS.

What do you think the resale prices on these would be?

Edit:The HP website says they have been approved...

I think people are expecting to make like $75 off each one they sell, i highly doubt that and expect them to be sold at $25 over cost, the market will be FLOODED

Goddamnit, I was looking around earlier today for one and EVERYWHERE was sold out (including Amazon). Found one on Craigslist for $250 and went and picked it up because, f it, that's still 50% off retail and it was worth it to me to play around with. *le sigh*

Depends on if they get it to port to android or not. An android tablet is worth a lot more.

Just got a security email alert from my CC company which is a GOOD thing!!!

They wanted to ensure that the large purchase was authorized.

Credit Card charged! In the other cases where the seller backed out/canceled order, my CC never was charged.

This is a good sign!

It amazes me how you guys buy crap you don't even need just because it's available.

Apple releases new iPhone?

"Gotta have it even though my old one still works fine!"

HP tablets on sale?

"Don't need one but hell, I'll take 10!"

I bought one yesterday.

Do you guys that bought 10+ really think your going to make a profit? The market is already flooded. People are gonna be using touchpads as coasters by next week.
