    You can use SuperOneClick to root the Samsung Infuse. I used ADB to do it to a friend's co worker, I highly recommend it. You can also now use http://revolutionary.io to root a number of device.

    Right now, some of the devs at XDA are taking a good look at this hardware to see how Android is going to run on the touchpad :)

    I'm curious whether there will be a pre 2 fire sale. I went to Verizon store during the weekend and nothing :'(.

    I've got a couple on order, more like insurance in case the onSale thing falls through. :)

    It looks good now, but I'm being paranoid about 'em since I'm not familiar with the seller.

    Sure wish that applied to the threads mods are apparently less interested in, but some of the members wish would still not get ruined...... :p

    lmao, this is pure win-win

    can't wait to try out WebOS at this bargain price, and if it doesn't suit me... I can just jump ship and port android... deals like this don't happen all that often, I'm glad I got a piece of it!

    Does anyone know if the 50 gigs of cloud storage is gonna stay free, or is it just a trial?

    Is there a way I can find specific words within a pdf using my touchpad? I'd like to put my textbooks on it, but it won't be as nice without a find feature.

    Ok...I'm totally blind to the HP Pad. There's a crazed effort to get them at discount TODAY, but I seriously dont' know WTF I'm missing out on. I have a laptop and an I phone, so is what will this do for me???

    I don't want to be the guy that misses out :cool:

    Then again if it's discontinued what's the fuss about? Someone clue me in please :grin:

    I grabbed a first generation ipad when verizon sold them off at $300. I got one just because....but I ended up using it far, far more than I thought I would. It's perfect for browsing the internet. Probably cut my laptop time by 80%. You'll use the heck out of it.

    I still don't know what I'll use my soon-to-be tablet for... but at this bargain, I'm willing to part ways with a C-note to find out

    I'm getting 'new car' fever and an itch to get one. Don't need it. You guys are making me WANT it though....lol.

    It is a pain dragging the laptop and turning it on (lazy) etc.... $99 bucks? Is there any chance HP will see the oppurtunity and keep the OS so that future apps may be available?
