They have the 4 Touchpads up now, 5:37 est, but they are $499.99 and $599.99. Are they going to drop down to the $99 and $129 or $149 at 7 est?

It looks like 27 of the 16GB sold in the last hour.

Make that 32 that have sold so far.

either folks don't know about the sale or are hoping for a price adjustment if the prices do indeed drop?

45 16GB sold at $500 and 19 32GB sold at $600. Not a bad day for HP and the sale hasn't even started yet.

They are listed as immediate payment required so they're taking a chance on putting out $1,000 for 2 and hoping HP with give them back the difference from the sale price. If they do give a price adjustment then what's the point of even having a start time for the sale?

Some think it's HP employees with some sort of "Coupon" or employee discount.

The amount sold jumped from 500 to over 2300 for the 99$ units. Didn't get one to go through, but didn't really try to hard either.

Re: HP Touchpad fire sale Sun Dec 11 6 PM CST - Ebay store

I was on my phone trying to buy the 16GB model as soon as it went live, but got to the paypal screen and got an error. I assumed I needed to be on a real computer... but were all of you getting the paypal error on a real computer too?

If so, I'll only be slightly less upset I didn't get in on this.
