Problem with HP.com you have to order from a US IP address and have a US delivery address. It seems Amazon ships to other countries too, so I will wait for them.

HP has more than 250,000 units to sell...

I have an account with BuyUSA, and routing through a US IP is easy with SSH tunneling. :)

Bhphotovideo ship to NZ and sell the Touchpad, though not at that price just yet (I imagine they will, though).

Any idea on shipping costs?

I'd also be very keen for the webOS tablet for $99!

Ordered two with a business account through HP.com. Still waiting for the order to verify though.

At $150/each for a 32GB TouchPad - thats gotta be better value than a digital photoframe.

Fingers crossed :P

Noel Leeming Quickly followed the $100USD price drop they did several weeks ago, It's at Noel Leeming for $679 or so, which makes me think that perhaps that they will do the clearance deal as well!

Will this not effectively cancel app development as well? Can't really see the point in rushing to buy one now.

I want a couch device to read emails and tweet. And I'm sure webOS will have a cult following.

Just ignore me. I am slightly annoyed as I had been waiting for webOS support to reach NZ before I purchased the Pre 3. Guess I can remove that from my clove shopping cart then.

edit: + I had signed up to the developers site etc...
