Office Depot in the US has the 32GB for $149, but requires a US credit card: http://www.officedepot.com/a/products/278394/HP-TouchPad-Tablet-32GB/

If anyone wants to get a couple, I'm happy to pay for one and split shipping.

I have entered about 142 competitions to win an iPad2 this week though, so maybe I should just write apps for those haha.

Gets a 'Sucker' sticker. So far no NZ retailer has announced any rebate, refund or price-match deal.

I wonder how long before Android's on it... maybe I should get a few at $99 then sell them later as Android tabs for $300.

Can someone post if they see specials on the TouchPad please, I hate signing up to daily deal sites.

I'd buy a couple of touchpads for $99, maybe even $150. They'd probably sit in the box until Android was available for them, though my girlfriend might use one for web and email.
