Rumor is 25k have been sold through outlets and hp has 250k.

Just a rumor but makes sense that not every device would be sitting waiting to be sold.

People looking to sell these through ebay for a profit may be in for a rude suprise when 80% of them show up there with stores still selling them.

If they sell all 250k they lose 50million.. Although they are worth almost 50billion.

Each touchpad costs THEM over $300 to make.

If they can make 50million on maintaining the appstore with purchases then i'd say they might just wipe their hands of it but who knows.

Bought one from OnSale via Amazon for $105, but I doubt I'll keep it. Plan to resell it for double!

Everyone is going to be doing that. I suspect the market will be flooded with 'em.

Market is already flooded went from 300 a couple hours ago to 250 and now they are under 200.

My bet is they are 150 before the day ends tomorrow.

If they get android ported over its a steal at 200.. without it I'm not so sure but close.

If all of mine come in, i'd be glad to send you one out for what I paid ($106ish), plus actual shipping costs.

They are doing it through onsale.com and their site is down(either taken down or traffic). Also they were the last sellers through amazon to run out at 99.

Good luck getting anywhere through slickdeals.net.. Ive been all over the internet and as of now its not happening.
