^^^^ Awesome! thanks!
It's still gonna be a day or so of mayhem as we get through our existing orders. I will say that one of our distributors is in talks with HP about getting at least another 15k units. That will allow us to fill orders with some left over. DON'T get your hopes up yet, as it's not positive whether it will happen or not. I WILL keep you guys informed!To detlion1643 : Please let us know when some new TouchPads arrives.
Thanks, detlion. I appreciate it!

Meanwhile, if you can go to a local best buy first thing in the morning tomorrow. Rumor has it that each store may be getting around 40 units soon. BestBuy spreadsheet has leaked: note that the inventory checker is not real time. You have to actually go there. Even if you can't find it in your nearest store, here's some tips:
Yeah, it's better to get the sku number, than ask for a touchpad. They have been trained to say OOS at the first mention, than 5 min later, it may be right there. SKU:Go to a newb Blueshirt or someone that looks fairly clueless (shouldn't be too hard to find) and tell them you'd like them to check a SKU to see if it is in stock. (You don't need to mention HP Touchpad though.) Follow them to the computer they use and watch the screen as they check. Local stores will come up and QTY will be visible (and possibly units on the way.) They can check all area stores and even other regions if needed.
Stop calling, stop asking for store lookups. Drive to one BB and check all area stores.
More info here.
My local store (Dublin, CA) is number 134 (I googled it), will be getting 20 32GB and 16 16GB, so check the spreadsheet against google.
But that may come in two shipments, one tomorrow, one later in the week. Many things may happen tomorrow, so keep your eyes open.
I got mine running at 1.8GHz since yesterday, using Phantom F4 kernel. After doing all the updates, patches to clean up the logging stuff, trying uberkernel for 1.5GHz boost (up from 1.2GHz stock), this is the best speed improvement I've seen so far. It's so fast, it feels like I'm doing something bad to it, it feels like you're faster or at least as fast as an iPad 2. Unbelievable! It's a 29% speed increase with a 16% battery tradeoff. See an article comparing your overclocking options here:

So far so good. Not one yota warmer than stock, those dual core Qualcomms rock! I bet will be seing 2GHz soon, this is unbelievable. Very happy with this tablet so far. $99.00? that's crazy. HP would be selling millions of these @250.00 and I heard they're going to produce some more (I doubt it's going to be at $99.00 if you're not in a waiting list).
I just uninstalled F4 Phantom and went back to UberKernel. For some reason F4 wasn't registering the second core. It also was draining my battery in about 30 minutes. There were quite a few other people over at precentral.net that were having similar issues. That's awesome its working good for you tho.
I still haven't charged it since yesterday at 17:00, it's showing 80% at 09:30. Will see what happens.
Update: after a reboot (trying something to get rid of the scrolling text on reboot) and now the second core doesn't show on Govnah (I take it that's what registered means?). So I think rebooting brakes what I had before.
So I did a second reboot, and it's showing again (instead of N/A, it's showing the CPU 2 cores o/c).
Yea that's what mine was doing. I'm not sure if Govnah is the culprit, or the kernel. If you check out the thread titled "F4 Phantom Kernel Testing" in the "WebOS Internals" subforum of www.precentral.net, there's some discussion on the issue. Sorry can't give a link at the moment, at work.
