    Is interest in the platform per se, or interest in the product at a firesale price point? I think the latter. I can't imagine sales being brisk at any price higher than $150-175 for the 16GB.

    just got this e-mail from officemax.

    Re: Cancelation of HP TouchPad Order

    Dear OfficeMax Customer:

    Recently you have been contacted and informed your HP TouchPad order was canceled due to HP discontinuing the item and OfficeMax not being able to source the item.

    It was brought to our attention that HP may be shipping additional inventory to its suppliers. Our Merchandising team has contacted HP and is pushing to acquire enough stock to cover the orders we had to cancel. HP has posted the following statement on their website - "Despite announcing an end to manufacturing webOS hardware, we have decided to produce one last run of TouchPads to meet unfulfilled demand. We don't know exactly when these units will be available or how many we'll get, and we can't promise we'll have enough for everyone."

    We have saved all canceled orders, and if we are successful in attaining additional HP TouchPads, we will contact you to fulfill your order.

    As always, we value your business. Thank you for your patience and loyalty throughout this situation.

    While we deeply regret any inconvenience this has caused, we ask that if you have questions, please call customer service at 1-877-OfficeMax.
