What are some "Must-have" accessories for the HP Touchpad? I want some but not sure what's good. If you have some that you want to tell me about, please go ahead now! :smile3:

I think it all depends on the person.

Personally I think the HP Case and HP Touchstone charger are must have.

Yep... the HP Case is aswome, it fits perfectly... and the Touchstone charger is the best accessory you will need for that, as it charges wireless... and since it's hardware related, it will work even when the Android port is done i am sure... anyhow, in the firesale, they were all on sale also at more than 65% rebate, so i grabbed them both along with my 16gb touchpad.

I have it and it works great if you have the case or the dock. Its hard to use with out seeing the tablet at an angle of at least 45 degrees. This is achievable by putting it on the Dock or using the special stand feature of the case itself. :)

I bought the HP case and keyboard they are great aside from the fact that the case doesn't have a latch of some kind to keep it closed, I like touchstone but I have no room on my desk to fit it, I also ordered a capacitive stylus on dealextreme that should arrive in 10-30 days heh so I will post back when I get that.

Personally I find the virtual keyboard to be decent so I found the bluetooth one to be unnecessary.

I tried to take notes with it in class and the virtual keyboard was just not cutting it, maybe if I got used to it more it would have been fine but I figured the keyboard was relatively cheap and it will hopefully work with my PS3 as well so yeah. I generally hate virtual keyboards, all my phones over the past couple years I have got because of the physical qwerty keyboard.

I used to be that way, which was one of the biggest reasons I adopted into the original Droid. However, the OG's keyboard was so massively bad that I've learned to deal with the virtual keyboard. The only thing the slide out keyboard was good for was slapping a gamepad over.

Shows out of stock, and in-store pickup only for both items. Also, checked availability for the case and the Touchstone in my area, and only 1 store says they have it online -- and that store is 25 miles away.

Seems like there is a shortage of accessories with all the recent sales. I hope they restock. I ordered one touchstone on Amazon but I have not heard or received a shipping conformations for three days so I have a feeling they are out also.

I went to Office Depot and they were sold out, but they had one Bluetooth keyboard left. Sigh, Amazon is the best deal I see at the moment. About to order the case.

I work for Office Depot and we are out of stock on most of the accessories and won't be getting them back in. I was looking for a case and my store sold them all before I could get one. I checked my local Walmart today and their website showed they had it in stock at the store. I printed out the page from our website (www.officedepot.com) showing the sale price and went to Walmart when I got off work. Of course they were still in stock, they still had it priced at 49.98. I asked them to price match it and gave them the print out from the OD website and they did it. Got my case for $19.

I suggest you do the same if you want any of the accessories. My Walmart also had the Touchstone dock in stock as well.

Here are the OD skus, you can just punch then in the search box on the website. Then print that page to bring to Walmart. Just make sure the part that says "Sold in stores only" is on your print out. Walmart won't match a website.
