I love my Touchpad ... Only cost me 99$. I'm eagerly waiting for Synergy Android mod.

I can also confirm from close sources that the Touchpad is gone from Bestbuy and Future Shop inventory. Even the sku dowdy exist anymore.

Finally got around to opening it out of the package today. Friend picked two up at FS on the firesale, yay $99! :)

Followed TouchPadPlus.com -- The Leading Step By step Instruction to Jailbreak, Boost Up and Overclock TouchPad with easy step-by-step guide to get the most out of WebOS while I wait anxiously for Android.

Its too bad they are trashing this OS. WebOS seems like its pritty good on this thing. Oh well. I'll join the masses of Android fanbois ;)

Installed the CM7 alpha on my TP today. So far it seems pretty stable.

Update: Used my touchpad a lot while doing some traveling and I actually really like WebOS (too bad it is no more). I will likely swap over to android after all the bugs are sorted out, but I will leave it as is for now. No regrets for buying it so cheap. I don't use it while at home, but my wife is using it as an ebook reader and web browser and really likes it.

NP. Can't speak for the keyboard, but the case is quite nice. Picked one up that was clearance at thesource for $24 (if I remember right).
