Probably because they're being discontinued. I read that hp is killing webos (what runs the hp tablets).

Not killing it exactly but prob trying hard to sell it. They are killing all of palms old products though. At those prices though its hard to beat.

What we decided not to do is build a device-end of the equation. What we have decided to do is invest in the webOS as a platform so that we can deliver the type of innovation in that platform to fulfill our vision of connected devices. There's a lot of excitement around tablets that are out there.

That's an excerpt from an interview with Stepehen DeWitt yesterday with engadget.

Contacted the local Best Buy and there are none for sale. They've all been set back to HP.
EDIT: every place I have found them still has them for the high price.

well the first staples I went to had none but got my gf to look in our home city with only one staples and they still had 10. So she got one I got one and our friend got one. It seems pretty good and I'm using it now.

Sears has sold out of the 32gb version and the price is now $149.
They still have some of the 16gb version (last I looked) but the price is still $399.
Seems like they won't drop the price till they sell out.

Asked the 'egg about when they are going to lower their price and was replied that they haven't receive any word to do that as yet. So everyone has the 'word' except Newegg????????

Thats odd. I think that everywhere here is sold out of them. Even the accessories are getting pretty hard to get hold of.

Just checked Newegg and the touchpads are still $400 and $500.
I should probably check hourly to see when the prices drop.

I unfortunately missed the news on this over the weekend. (Thanks a lot for that Maximum PC! Nowhere on the front page...)

I would have loved to have bought one for my wife/son.

Just found that Zones.com still has some at the discount price. I ordered a 32gb version.
The site isn't running very fast so the best way to find it it to put the item # 05544381 in the search box.
The 16gb item # 05544383

Yeah, and Zones.com charges almost the exact same price for the 16GB and they are making a profit on the shipping, charging $13.70 for like 8 day ground. To box and ship it costs them half of that amount.

Newegg at 10:22 AM Pacific Daylight Time is still charging $400 and $500.

I can't check the stock at the moment, but I know Barnes and Noble was selling the 16GB version (and probably the 32 as well) for $101 earlier this morning.

Dedgar: does your purchase show being on back order?

Mine does, but they've already billed my credit card.

I'm on hold now trying to find out if there's any chance of me actually getting the item.
