      Yeah, we have a call in on that. At least it hasn’t taken down the site (knock on wood).

    Xavier, don’t slap the device that hard man! We’ve been waiting for it for over a year so be gentle with it :-)
    is it released and for sale yet?

      Yes, it’s available, and since I’ve already got my order in the queue I’ll give you the secret. Go to the HP Small and Medium Business site (it’s not available in the Home and Home Office site). Select “Laptops” and then “Mini” (it doesn’t show up in search). The current expected shipping date is 11/12.

    USB thought – saw the HP demo video and they plugged a USB 4g stick in it for wireless so it’s a good placement while in your hands in portrait mode.

      Isn’t there a way to get internal 3/4G connection via internal modem? A usb stick isn’t a nice option I must say
