The HP Touchpad firesale was over almost as soon as it began. By the time I woke up, got a call from my brother and went out looking for one, none of the stores here at Urban Sawgrass, around Sawgrass Mills Mall, had one. I visited Walmart, Office Depot, Target, Office Max and Brandsmart USA. At BrandsMart USA they told me that they have pulled them off the shelves and will be sending them back to HP.....Whatever! I decided not to go to Best Buy or CompUSA or Hh Gregg since I knew those stores would be the first ones to get hit. Plus on the web, CompUSA and Best Buy did not reduce the prices.

After coming up short at Urban Sawgrass stores, I drove over to Walmart at Sunrise Town Center on the corner of University and Oakland. They had 4 HP Touchpads in the glass case, all 32GB models. Too bad it was 1 per customer. I picked one up for my brother but didn't get one for myself. A gentleman behind me bought another one. Looking forward to getting Android installed on this thing. At this price, and especially with Android when it's available, HP Touchpad is a clear winner over the more expensive Apple Ipad. On Sunday evening I ordered a 16GB from Amazon.com
