@XdohhhX

I cant believe you have the balls and ignorance to register since you must have registered to post your comments.

the people who are implementing this CM7 are not receiving any financial benefit for their efforts.

I applaud them, and accuse you of being selfish, self-centered, and a total idiot.

just wait, be patient, and be happy that there are people who you haven't the right to lick their boots working on this.

Dude, calm down. He has a right to his opinion. Stop with the personal attacks.

They had a second batch that went out, but it was for HP employees only. They ran out before there was a public sale.

Actually the word is that the Touchpads will go back on sale in a package deal with either a laptop or desktop. HP is using this to it's full advantage. From what I hear, you will not be able to get a TP for $99/$149 without purchasing a computer as well.

It is also my opinion that the Touchpad fire sale was pre-planned before it's release as a clever stunt to liquidate HP hardware and hype the software division. That is their future business model. We saw Android leaks I believe- mainly because HP knew developers would try to put Android on it and wanted to see how hard it would be. This is all for hardware liquidation and WebOS profitability. Just my take on it. It makes no since to liquidate a unit with a build cost of $350 simply to just get out of the tablet business. It is obvious- now that they're making massive amounts more of these things. It's a stunt.

No offense, but that theory is, as my dad used to say, crazy-penguin talk. :)

Yeah? You think? Haha. It sounds crazy, but I am convinced.

Looks like HP is not entirely out of Touchpads.
Apparently they're looking to sell 32s to registered developers at the $150 price point, limited to two per developer.

They are discontinuing their device loaner program and providing the TPs for sale to replace that. Another indication of their departure from webOS.

I hope HP comes through with the coupons. I would love to have one! I also wonder if it will be able to run windows 8, which will support Arm processors. Triple boot!
