Just arrived from PP

Unfortunately the HP Touchpad is unavailable and we are uncertain if there will be more stock.
We have removed your order and reversed the credit card transaction.
Please accept my apologies for any inconvenience.

I dont think the money reverses immediately - its the credit card company that does this so probably overnight. We havent received the CC payments either, so its not like we are any better off for it. 3hrs of wasted time thats what we get :( The payments were reversed immediately which is best we could do. 

What a mess.
 
Again, sorry for the hassles.

I don't think you have any need to apologize. You've been doing your best to cater to such a strong demand, and I for one applaud your helpfulness here.

+1 , you've done a better job than any other retailer keeping us up to date on stock levels, and you've been as honest as you can be.
