jesterz: Interestingly, the price is now back down to $229 according to the NZ HP site!


Perhaps they read this thread and realised they would have to be pretty daft to price it at $299

In that case $229 is outrageous for the quality of the product. Suggest $150 as a good starting point ...

How can you judge the quality of the product when it hasn't even been released? the specs look ok for $229. Might even be able to pick it up on sale or something for cheaper.

Twas a joke ... :)

I'll definitely have a look when it's released. Tab 2 7's seem to be rapidly dropping in price as well. Will wait and see ...
