I just got the following e-mail from TigerDirect, and thought other Geekzoners may be interested. Its a little too late for me, as I've long since switched to "plan B" for the intended recipient of the TouchPad I failed to secure during the initial fire sale. But I figure there may still be folks here interested in securing one for a decent price.

TigerDirect:
Thank you for signing up to be alerted to HP TouchPad inventory.

We have a few HP TouchPads that will be made available, Friday, November 4th, at 2:30pm eastern time. They will only be available on our website by going to the following link:

www.tigerdirect.com/sectors/campaigns/hp/touchpad_available.asp?SRCCODE=WEM2874TT&cm_mmc=email-_-Main-_-WEM2874-_-tigeremail

Our call center does NOT have access to this inventory. Again, you can only purchase the TouchPads online by going to:

www.tigerdirect.com/sectors/campaigns/hp/touchpad_available.asp?SRCCODE=WEM2874TT&cm_mmc=email-_-Main-_-WEM2874-_-tigeremail

Now, we don't have enough HP TouchPads to satisfy everyone who has signed up to get these HP TouchPad alerts. So, we wanted to give you a quick heads up before it goes live Friday at 2:30pm ET.

Remember, it's likely to sell out within about 5-10 minutes.

Be assured we are working aggressively to get more.

EXPECTATIONS

Due to overwhelming demand for this product, it's expected to sell out within 5-10 minutes. That means that it may say "SOLD OUT" at 2:35pm. Also, we're limiting this inventory to one unit per customer. Sorry. No rainchecks. No backorders. Once we sell out, that's it.
