Good eye!
Yeah I just happened to call them seeing if they would match the $40 price that office depot has for the touchstone charger. I first asked if it was in stock and she said yes and that it was $40. Went down there to get one, and they had that along with all of the other accessories piled in a shopping cart.

They didn't advertise it anywhere, and on their website these are still full price.

I picked up the keyboard too because that's a good price for a small bluetooth keyboard.

Of course they would drop in price as soon as I bought the charger. Ahh well, at least the Touchpad was cheap.

Office Depot has the HP custom fit folio for $19.99 instead of the regular $49.99 price. I have it for mine and it fits the Touchpad like a glove, pretty nice. Also I like that you don't have to remove it to charge it on the Touchstone charger or the regular charger that plugs in. It fits really snugly on the Touchpad and is actually kind of difficult to get off.

Neither. It's kind of rubbery.
You can see it here http://www.hp.com/united-states/webo...cessories.html





It is $12.99 here http://www.techbargains.com/news_displayItem.cfm/266484

Didn't you buy it at walfart? Just take it back and buy it at best buy.

I can't. I tossed the receipt in the trash yesterday and the trash truck came today. Besides I ripped up the packaging like Oprah ripping into a package of twinkies

Besides, with my luck I'd take it back to Walmart, head over to Best Buy and find out they don't have any, go back to Walmart and find they sold the one I just returned.

You can't tell from the pics but inside the cover flap it is a soft felt like material that lays against the screen, the rest of the thing is rubbery. I love how it fits so exact on the Touchpad, covering the buttons and leaving the headphone jack, mic and speakers exposed.

This touchstone thing is nice, it automatically puts the touchpad in clock mode. I think I am going to replace my alarm clock with this. Then it'll be next to my bed for when I want to surf the web real quick, and when I put it down it's just a clock and it charges.

My dad likes it too, hopefully best buy has more and I'll pick up another one tomorrow.

Awesome. That's a winner in my book. I love it.

So. Do any remote desktop or logmein programs work on this? Id love to leave my laptop at work and just carry my tablet
