    I'm keeping an eye on the HP online store, but not holding my breath. They're up there at the pre-firesale price still, but when adding them to the cart they magically turn in to printers.

    Plan B is to see if any turn up cheap on the OCAU trade section later on...

    Plan C is to just save up and buy a native Android (maybe ICS by then) device.

    Walmart still has them, if you know someone in the US who can walk in to a store and get one for you.

    You may have to pay for the paper bag they have to put on their head to hide their identity though...

    my understanding is that part 2 firesale is from hp.com only, and they only ship to US. basically can forget about ever getting it in Australia.

    the 2nd wave stocks are those that got returned from retailer, and HP are using it to fill out SMB order first...

    to people who ordered through B&N:

    If you log into the website and view your order status does it actually say cancelled or anything?

    I've received the 'sorry' email but the order page still says "In Process: Not Yet Shipped"
