Found 23rd Aug 2011
Update: It's back at: currys.co.uk/gbu…L-1

I little dearer than Comet, PC world and Dixons deals at the moment but good deal considering that Samsung or Lenovo may take over the consumer business and WebOS eco system.

I think some of the sites "selling" these are playing "games" with us.

£15 off when you spend £75 or more

Code:- 301479

I was just about to buy, stopped for a mo and someone posted the deal up here and the website. Curses for me thinking for a sec.

Be patient, I've been going at the Staples site for about 40mins now..

Staples will call you back saying sorry it has happened before i rang them they said out of stock.

HP are stopping production of these and are going to stop supporting WebOs, so although this may be a deal don't expect too much support or upgrades tot eh OS/Firmware.

These crappy websites that cant handle the traffic are sucking every ounce of fun to be had chasing these hp touchpad deals. I dont want to play any more!

Yes, HP are stopping all consumer business so that includes laptops and desktop as well but this does not make it less of a deal. WebOS is better than iOS (until iOS 5 comes out maybe?) and also Andriod which is just too messy to say the least.

To top it off, note through forums you must of read that you can downgrade to Ubuntu and Andriod if you want.

Please make sure you are not saying this is bad because of marketing and comparisons with the superior Apple iPad2 as a product.

£124 for a 32gb at dabs. For some reason my submission got deleted so I thought I would post it here.

If it was that good, then the entire worlds press would not have slated it and it would have actually sold at 4 times its current price. people are buying it now because it is very cheap and they are expecting an android port from a bunch of teenagers.

Enough said. HP marketing never arrived to the UK. The product was overshadowed by Apple's marketing which is why it didn't sell as well as it should. Android take up has been better purely on the fact that better hardware manufacturers supported it i.e. Samsung. HP didn't want to work for low margins hence focusing on business customers.

16gb-"More than 200 on order, stock delayed"

IMO

Apple's hardware is excellent but its software sucks

Conversely

HP Web OS hardware sucks but its WEBOS is excellent

Interesting that HP's engineers were reported to be dismayed that when they recently managed to run WebOS on an ipad they found it ran over twice as fast as on there own HP hardware!

I'm betting on WebOS being licensed and becoming the new Android TBH

Dabs site said both the 32gb and 16gb were "ordered on request", so no stock?

Apples software doesnt 'suck'. It is very nice to use bar the obvious drawback of not having flash.

Apple software doesn't suck, it actually works really well as a iPod interface. But in terms usability and ease of use then WebOS is just better. By not having flash, it saves on battery life and memory usage.

Dont get me wrong I am far from anti Apple I have been using Mac's for nearly 20 years and have have both the iPhone 3g and iPhone 4 - but I could never use their phones without Jailbreaking as the software is way too restrictive and extremely buggy.

WebOS is in another class - Apple should have bought it themselves in my opinion - the only thing that stopped me buying the Pre or the Touchpad was the quality of the hardware.
