I just rang up NL in Queenstown (I'm in Alexandra) and bought the last 16gb one over the phone. Salesman made me buy the case for $49 so had to pay $186 but I'm happy. Will go over and pick it up tonight.

I was at NL Tory St at like 8.35, around 10 people waiting got told by a staff member they had all been sold last night. Would like to know when exactly there were 2 there.

If anyone gets one it would be worthwhile having a look at the Pre3 on clove. There are some cool cross features between the two devices.

Behodar:

The official word from B&N, via Slickdeals:
The HP Touch Pad sale over the weekend triggered an unprecedented response. We are currently reviewing inventory and orders to determine the number of requested orders that can be fulfilled for this item. Cancellation notices are going out automatically to customers whose orders were placed after the inventory was depleted. Please note that it's our policy not to charge a customer's credit card unless the product is shipped. Therefore, even if you have received an authorization notification, your card won't be charged until the product is shipped. We sincerely regret any inconvenience.


I'm wondering how many they had. The B&N Touchpad page had several thousand "likes" when I placed my order (not sure but maybe 5,000???) and late last night it had over 11,000 - now I never clicked "like" even though I ordered 2 of them, so how many likes vs. how many orders vs. how many in stock?

I guess that fact that I haven't got a cancellation notices yet must be considered good news. They might not "charge" the credit card, but I'm pretty sure they are putting a "hold" on them for the amount. Did anyone else notice their account balance change equivalent to the amount ordered?

I commend HP (or Noel Leeming) for meeting the same price as they have internationally. Sure there wasn't a lot of stock around (no I didn't get one), but NL were selling off their remaining store stock. And if the staff members bought them all last night good on them, if I was in the same situation I would probably too. Now to keep refreshing Acquire.

You're very lucky, I rang that store at 9am and got told they would not sell to me over the phone.
