We should arrange an RFD TouchPad meetup after all this is over.

Meetup at RFD headquarters?

Chances are there would be no stock, even today.

-Transstory

So you think it would be a good idea to wait for BB's email or order now? Because there is still stock for the 32GB right now.

It is VERY possibly phantom stock. The reason they couldn't try to remove it is also the reason why the price is still the full price. The web site workers don't work on the weekend.

Really? Yet the 16 one had the "Add To Cart" option removed sometime before noon yesterday.

Wait... what if I didn't order the touchpad at normal price today... Can I order it tomorrow morning at $99.99 or $149.99?

Btw, I ordered from BB, but still not confirmation mail. Thanks.
You wont be able to order one tomorrow most likely. There is a chance that many people ordering from today and late last night might not get any.

I'm done with looking for a touchpad.

-TransTouchpad

There will be other ways of acquiring one later on anyway.

if fs/bb/staples fired all the hording unethical employees there will be no sales and most of no managerial staff left!!!
Haha that's a good point. Though there are some that didn't really care enough to pick them up, like the person I talk to about this.

so today i spoke with a FS rep.. he told me that before the HP fire sale, all the FS employees were getting the touchpads for $120 for the 16gb unit, that's why most of the FS and BB stocks are low.. all the employees have hoarded them all leaving only like 10 units per store left for the actual customers.. Not sure if for reall...

-TransGender

Yeah, I saw when someone even posted about it a while before the sale (maybe a week ago) but I didn't believe it. I was even at BestBuy on Friday night before closing and saw the title for this thread on HP Touchpads, but I said to myself why the hell would I want a tablet...

Scumbag RFDers:

Complain about scumbag FS and BB employees who hoard,
attempt to hoard Touchpads from HP.ca

LOL I know eh.
Everyone that complains about employee's taking stock for themselves would be doing the same thing if they had the chance too.

No I didnt get any other then one ordered through the hpshopping site and of course I got to wait till monday to see if they even ship since they dont operate on weekends. :lol:

i think its semi plausible that hp.ca would just make a crap load of money by selling them at 499, not taking returns, and letting their reputation go down for a cool 20 million in cash
