Order Online:
Not available online

LMAO, as a follow up to this message, I got this e-mail from bestbuy:

Dear Antonio,

We wanted to connect with you immediately with respect to your recent visit to where you ordered the HP 32GB TouchPad with Wi-Fi. Being upfront and direct with our customers is important to us. Recently, an error within our online system was made, and as a result of the overwhelming volume of orders placed, we were unable to fulfill your request due to a lack of inventory and have cancelled your order.

In addition, we wish to make clear that we will not be receiving any new inventory of this product, however should we receive any occasional customer returns, you may see available stock in certain stores. For more information about the HP TouchPad, please click here.
