I got a 32 GB, $150 one! biggrin.gif

I was aiming for the cheaper $100 one, but they were sold out in ten or twenty minutes, and ebay was a horrific piece of garbage.
It took me fourty five minutes, but I was finally able to snatch one. I had it give me more errors than I ever saw from ebay, one funny one was that someone else was buying the same item at the same time, heh.

Anyways, in the USA it cost 15 dollars tax and 19.99 shipping, so about 35 dollars extra ($185 full total from paypal).

I bought mine from the .ca version of ebay, the .com servers were getting hammered.

I finally managed to pick one up. I too wen through .ca and completed the transaction in under 2 minutes.

After I failed the initial sale, then the sale at Conn's a week ago; I've finally purchased one.

I'm hoping to get CM7 on it and get rid of my ipod touch smile.gif

Well, don't fret people. There are more deals around the corner. Probably be able to get a tablet like this new with a full warranty for $200 I'm sure down the road. The 32gig sells used on amazon for $250 so yah, $150 is a great deal regardless but as tablets become more and more mainstream, they will only get better and cheaper.

That's what I never understood. Why do these people whine about the shipping price? Would it really be that much of a difference if the seller lists an item for $120 w/ free shipping instead of $100 + $20 shipping?

People see the total price before they purchase the item. If it's too high, then don't buy the darn thing.

Who cares? With an OS that is essentially dead and buried, unless someone actually does something with WebOS in the future, these tablets are the antithesis of future-proof.

HP is open-sourcing webOS, so it has a chance at a future. And people have been reporting positive experiences with the android port.

That's fairly wrong, lol.

Don't like WebOS, use Android.

Mine runs great with CM7.1 Alpha 3. I have full access to the market place too. If Android was considered not to be future proof, then we would have a problem.
