My verification for mobicity was quite fast. I ordered on the 25th. Status started at lvl 2 and was verified the next day. On the 29th mobicity sent me a confirmation of the order that included a tracking code for fedex.

iceteap3: anyone got an update on the mobicity orders ? the guy on the online chat is just so frustrating as he never gives me proper answers .


I seem to be getting emails from them just about daily, last two said the same thing "Your order # XXXXXXXXX status is Backorder. "

Ordered on the 27th... guess I was a little slow.

My order number is #200003670 but my mate ordered 10 mins before me with a lower order number but hes backordered which is quite odd.

Based on my and your order numbers it looks like they are processing at least 50 per day. Perhaps the orders are not fully automated and are divided between staff processing orders in the backend, either way I just hope they arrive soon.

Just got an email from HP saying they can't give specific dates but will be making more units available soon so things are looking hopeful.

Forgive me but why would HP make more units of a product they have discontinued?

from what i have heard is they have all the parts sitting there as obviously initially they thought it would be an on-going line.  So rather than waste them looks like theya re going to make the parts up into one last lot of touchpads.

Technofreak: 

 Should I be looking elsewhere or just forget about the whole thing. At least for the time being.

I tend to think there will be some cheaper ones on TradeMe in a week or two when the hoopla has died down and people who bought on the spur of the moment decide to sell their under used Touchpad. On the other hand those that bought the Touchpad may discover it's actually quite good and it ends up developing a strong cult following, keeping the second hand prices up.

There certainly seems to be quiet a few scalpers selling on TradeMe which is frustrating for those of use who were genuine buyers looking to buy and keep the Touchpad.  That's life I guess.



I ended up cancelling my mobicity order because although they seemed relatively sure they would be getting stock they couldn't confirm it, so I went the eBay route, getting it shipped to US parcel forwarder then on to me for a little more than MobiCity (Hard to say until I get quote for US to NZ DHL). MobiCity would be great to get one through in terms of relatively local (Australia), supplier. 

Some people on the Whirlpool forums have had their mobicity orders begin to ship from HK though fedex so it does look like some progress is being made. Good Luck for you order!

fab: My touchstone arrived from Acquire the other day - a lot smaller than I thought it would be, which is great.


How much did you pay to get one through them? I got the case and touchstone from Noel Leeming for $100 all up, could've possibly got it cheaper but it was more of an impulse decision. Still $50 off RRP.

Question wasn't directed towards me but acquire currently has a touchstone + NZ ac adapter for $56.70 + GST. It's not as good as their earlier $35ish deal for the touchstone on its own but supplies are running low here and in the states (HP's custom fit case seems particularly hard to find now).

I've ordered a Touchstone from Amazon but did not get a case, but now I'm starting to think I may need one.

Paid $59 for the touchstone - was worried (needlessly?) that touchpad accessories are going to start being scarce? I can't imagine HP manufacturing more of them, but may well be wrong.

Got a case from Noel Leeming website $40 I think (delievered) so ended up $100 for both. I'm happy with that.

My cousin in Phoenix just sent mine yesterday, now just got the wait for it to get here...

You ended up with around the same pricing as me then. When I went to my local Noel Leeming they had all of their accessories for touchpads in the stock room ready to be sent back apparently, that's what made me buy it then and there (Maybe just a cunning sales strategy!)
