    HP Touchpad Explosion! Perfect Source of Useful Info on The Now Popular Device


    For many of you guys, the thought of grabbing an Android Tablet for $400 or more, or even $300 may be just a bit too much. Recently, there has been an explosion of interest in a tablet that is not technically Android, but could soon be Android, and that is the HP Touchpad. For those that missed the news, the HP Touchpad with it's own HP custom operating system is now defunct. The company shelved the project at a cost of over $1 Billion dollars, because they couldn't get it going. In the interim they had a massive "fire sale" on the device, blowing it out for only $99 bucks. Many intrepid and creative forward-thinking folks saw this as an opportunity to potentially get a super-cheap Tablet that might have the potential to host a hacked version of Android.

    That hasn't happened for the masses yet, but technically it has happened. Supposedly, Qualcomm was able to cram a working version of Android 2.2 on to the HP Touchpad, which shows that it is technically possible. So, now that you can see the possibilities, and for those of you who already jumped upon this opportunity, we wanted to share our HPTouchPadForums.net website as the definitive repository of information on the device. In fact, thanks to one of our best admins, and all around amazing guy, wicked, we now have a thread of incredibly useful information for folks to be able to get their hands on one of these devices. Going to a great deal of trouble, wicked, compiled a huge list of available retail outlets and corporate chains for you to have an opportunity to purchase one of these devices for yourself. But, you have to hurry folks, as they are running out quickly! Here's his link below, and don't forget to check out and help create even more info regarding this device @ HPTouchPadForums.net!

    I would absolutely grab one for $99, if I had $99 handy. Just moved so all my money is gone for the month. I'm hoping I can fine one after I get paid. I want it for the price, not so much because Andy can be put on it. WebOS wasn't that bad from what I saw.

    I am a little torn. I really like the webOS, I wouldn't even think of changing it if it wasn't for the potential lack of support and apps. Best $99 I have spent in a while.

    I went over to http://www.hptouchpadforums.net and was looking to see if there were still any touchpads available but there is so much information there, that I can't find if there is any available or not. Does anyone know right now if I can purchase one of these anywhere?

    From everything I have been reading, unless you are on the few websites expecting to get a restock and mashing F5 all day, your best bet is going to be finding out the scheduled delivery dates at brick-n-mortars in your area and being at the right place at the right time. I've heard people have had luck at best buy, office depot, target, Walmart... all the usual places.
