HP won’t be Shipping Any TouchPads until Friday

I finally got tired of waiting to hear from HP on my TouchPad order , so a few minutes ago I called and got an update. I was told that the order was safe, but that they were waiting to receive stock in the warehouse. They don’t expect to ship my order until the end of this week or the early part of next week.

Now, the interesting part here is that I placed my order Saturday night and it’s going to be at least another week before I get it. Obviously  HP received so many orders that night that they still haven’t filled them all. It sounds like they’re actually still waiting to get my units from the factory.

I’m pretty sure that this means that HP won’t be taking any orders until Friday. Even if they do, they won’t have all that many left to sell. But even if they do have more units, HP still won’t be able to ship any of the TouchPads they sell this week until they fill any outstanding orders.

I really don’t think we’ll see HP selling anymore TouchPads . In fact, I’m not going to bet on seeing them on sale anywhere.

Thanks Nate for the update. Mine was supposed to be shipped today and of course that didn’t happen. I looked at the Line Item Detail and mine is on Back Order. Your post gives me some hope, but I am still doubtful. Ebay is looking better all the time.

Here is what I received today after inquiring over the weekend of my order. All week long, it has said IN PROCESS when I checked it online. After a few days, I did assume I would never see it. I e-mailed them to see what was up with it. It would have been more helpful if they listed my order as BACKORDERED instead of IN PROCESS. Oh well.

Dear Customer,

Thank you so much for your order!

Our current inventory is fully committed. We are working with HP to secure additional inventory if it becomes available to fulfill any backorders. We should be able to confirm by the end of the week if your order on the waiting list will be filled.

Unfortunately, your order is currently on backorder status. At this time we do not have an ETA for the ITEM.

Items on backorder will not be charged to your credit card until they are shipped.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

[…] of getting one just went up. But I have to say that I’m surprised; based on the fact that mine won’t ship for another week I expected that the TouchPad would never be available […]
