For those of you lucky enough to get the HP TouchPad 16GB , I'm willing to pay $200 NZD + Shipping so that you don't have to burden yourself any longer. You will be helping to save the children (my inner child) so consider it a charity!

Its somewhat amusing that HP couldn't sell these to save themselves now there are people falling all over themselves to get a hold of one..

Yeah I just want one as a cheap tablet and to flash it with Android once hackers release a version.

Only because of the cheap, cheap price, surely?

A fanboy perspective, no less. Again missing the point that the OS is not being discontinued, just the hardware division inside HP.
