Well I assume my package has been shipped via FedEx on Saturday but the details still do not resolve, will see what the next few days bring.
Either way I am going to have to be calling their customer service line to get a refund, to get paid back for their free shipping they threw in, as they are charging me for shipping on my order.

So just got an automated e-mail from HP, "Important update about HP TouchPad"

Dear xxxx,

Making sure customers have a positive experience when they purchase our products is a priority for us. In some cases, limited inventory makes it challenging to fulfill all customer orders. As you signed up for updates on the HP TouchPad, we wanted you to know that we are officially out of stock. Some retailers will have some stock available, but our online inventory is depleted.

Thank you for your interest in this product and the feedback you provided. Your input plays a critical role in defining our product roadmap and will help us continue to bring innovative products to market.

Sincerely,
HP

Wow, thanks for the timely and relevant communication, HP! rofl...

Has anyone gotten Android's Splashtop Remote Desktop (nonHD) app to play video on the TP without an audio delay? My audio lags behind about 2 seconds.

BTW, getjar has some great apps for free (Splashtop, Tapatalk, etc), though don't expect updates to them.

Did it work? Mine is kinda flakey, push to turn the volume up and it goes down, have to keep fidgeting with it to get it to turn up.

Guess the QA on these last ones was not the greatest. :(

This is not the link that I purchased my 16 Gig Touchpad from.

This is lifted from dealnews.com

New: HP TouchPad 10" 32GB Tablet for $150 w/ computer purchase + free shipping
At Best Buy, purchase any qualifying HP or Compaq laptop, desktop, or all-in-one computer and receive a HP TouchPad 9.7" 32GB Touchscreen WebOS Internet Tablet, model no. FB356UT#ABA, for $149.99. With free shipping, and not including the cost of the computer, it's a $450 drop and the lowest total price we could find for a 32GB HP Touchpad by $180. Sales tax is added where applicable.

A best bet is the Compaq AMD Dual-Core 1.65GHz Desktop PC (no monitor), model no. CQ2010, bundled with the HP TouchPad 9.7" 32GB Touchscreen WebOS Internet Tablet for $449.98. With free shipping, it's the lowest total price we could find for the pair by $180. Sales tax is added where applicable. The desktop features an AMD E-450 1.65GHz dual-core processor, 2GB RAM, 500GB 7200 rpm hard drive, dual-layer DVD burner, Ethernet, and Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.

I just received shipping confirmations on the two 32GB HP Touchpads.
My cousin is getting one at my cost as he also wanted a cheap tablet.
The other I will keep for development.

Besides the smooth scrolling, alpha 3 was a step backwards for me compared to alpha 2.1 with the SoD fix:
1. Dolphin Mini/HD would force close itself randomly.
2. Vibration seemed to be gone again.
3. Couldn't install apps from Amazon app store. I forgot to check the CM settings so this might be an easy fix.
4. Within two days of use, I got one SoD. With 2.1 + the SoD fix, I have yet to get any (3 weeks).

I have installed alpha 3 and I am loving it so far. Swype tech makes posting a lot easier and web pages load correctly!

Yup...I'm on the fence right now. $100 is a good price refurb or not...I'm just a little skeptical I can tolerate 41024x768 instead of a something capable of playing my collection of 720p videos at native resolution. I'd mainly be using this as a portable bluray player and occasional reading (already have a kindle that I love) and gaming.

Someone feel like pushing me off the edge one way or the other?

Have any of you used CM7 XRON: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1321335

Do I have to start fresh or can I just update to it like how it is with Alpha 2.1->3.0? I've seen people say both ways work but it might be better to start fresh.

Edit: I did a factory reset after backing up my apps as that seemed to be recommended. Overall, it works great though I dislike the amount of apps preinstalled.
