Maybe.

Just relax. It will get here when it gets here, and not a moment sooner. ;)

For the record, mine arrived in 6 days, using USPS Express International.

if that was sent by USPS, once the tracking shows that it is already in NZ, you can ring NZ post for a local tracking number.

ISC stands for international sorting centre or some other group of 3 words that fit that tla which mean the same thing. 

This should give you guys using int priority of the times involved, here is my tracking.

Well maybe not in the air for 7 days but in the holding areas or some other postal sorting centres waiting to hitch the next lift as it hops to its final destination.  YMMV depending on which day of the week it leaves the various countries, lots of variables but good enough for a rough idea.

Mine has turned up, yay! It's sitting on the touchstone doing an OS upgrade at the moment, seems like a pretty nice unit.

Why is it that Android and WebOS both have far better keyboards than iOS!?

The WebOS interface looks a lot more "professional" than Android.

Now, time to start hacking it :)

Has anyone found any good Twitter client for it? Spaz HD is awfully slow, even on an overclocked TP.

Patches installed, uberkernel overclocked to 1.5ghz, seems like a snappy little thing. Quite like the interface although it's a bit slow as I'm having to tether it to my cellphone at the moment due to the Touchpad seemingly not supporting WPA Enterprise wireless, which is a nuisance.

Now, I just need to ferret out a couple of apps or ways do to some common tasks and I'm good to go!

Using it on the touchstone is quite convenient.

Is there a way to browse available apps via the web, like you can with the Apple AppStore. My wife is keen to know the sort of apps you can get for the TouchPad, just in case we get lucky and are able to secure one.
