Still waiting for my Touchpad to arrive from the US.
Ordered several and had several cancellations - can't even remember which one it is now.
But soon my Bluetooth keyboard will have something to connect to. Smile

I'm still considering the Poetic leather case, so I might be keen to join any group deal for those.

It looks like I will have at least 5 orders for the Poetic case (including mine) so I'm going to place an order in the next day or two.  The case I am planning to get is the PU leather case.  I need to confirm the freight options but expecting the price to be around $35NZD landed in New Zealand. There will be postage from me to you on top.

 Please PM me to confirm your interest.

Congratulations! Good luck with the self - restraint lol!  The family it fighting over our new toy so might need to try and get another - what joys that will be! I am debating this case too.  I am getting the leather option as well but thought I might look at this as a second case of incase we get another.  Let me know if you are keen to follow thru. thks

Good luck with getting it back lol - I haven't seen mine in the last 2 days.  The two of them are fighting it out and telling me I need to get them one each!! Mind you my polically incorrect parenting tip for the week - by an hp touchpad and see how quickly your child gets ready for school in the morning!! Works like a cahrm - mornings have been so easy the laast two days!!

TVNZ ondemand is perfect on the touchpad, I watch a couple of shows every night as I don't have a TV, I used to use my laptop but the touchpad is so much better for holding and viewing angles.

My only complaint with facebook is there is no facebook chat yet, but other than that the app is pretty cool. Hope you enjoy is once you get it back, i've done most of the changes, just haven't overclocked to 1.5 yet, will do that another day, at the moment it is plenty fast.

Patience pays off.

Me and my father were really keen on a cheap HP Touchpad. Just got an email to say he's ordered a couple of ASUS Transformers. DSE had them at $499.

$400 for a 32GB HP Touchpad seems ridiculous now.
