Just ordered mine with Curries. The £10 off promo is back on, plus 3% Quidco :)

3-5 working days for delivery, so in theory I will get it before Christmas! *crosses fingers*

Well good luck with that. I ordered on the 2nd and I'm still waiting. I used to be an optimist but Currys have beaten that out of me :)

Curry's and PCWorld seem to have been accepting orders all day and still seem to still have stock as of time of posting .... which may be a bit worrying as they have either had a monster delivery or it's a big mistake with taking orders but no actual stock again :)

There was a comment earlier about perhaps they have had stock for a while but haven't been selling them while they tried to resolve the flash / no flash issue. Hopefully, they really do have stock as mine was ordered Saturday morning.

Hi All

Ordered my Vega from PCWorld Saturday - just delivered! I'm so excited! Booted it up no probs. Looks rather nice if a bit lacking at the moment - no Flash etc. After reading this forum extensively over the past few weeks I have just paid my tenner and joined. You guys seem well up on this device - one of the reasons I have bought it. I am going to attempt to put Pauls ROM on it tonight. Can't wait!

:)

Ordered mine on Saturday and never got any emails or any other notifications although it did appear on my account on their web site.

I phoned PC World on Monday and was told it had been released?

I phoned again today to be told that DHL had been unable to deliver it yesterday but I did get a tracking number. Harriet from PC World phoned back to give me the mobile number of the HDN person in my area and I arranged an RV with her to collect it.

I have been playing with it all morning and have updated it to R5. I was dreading this process as I only have Windows 7 64 but everything went fine with no problems at all.

My thoughts too. However, VAT is only going up by 2.5%. While its sad to have to pay more tomorrow than we would today for anything in a world where prices for IT relentlessly fall, it does only works out as about 6-7 pounds more. Id probably spend that to get a PC which had an actual pounds sign on it!

Still, I am hoping they will be back in stock this week. I fly back from the US on the 31st, and I will not have a chance to buy one in-person before the VAT rise. I am therefore hoping to order one online for delivery next week.

It's interesting - staples binned the viewsonic tablet earlier this month - see here.. One advantage the vega has is this community as such issues would probably be better understood and addressed.

I've been checking last 2 weeks, still nothing, if there is no stock in next two weeks I have a m8 who's getting me a Viewsonic G-Tablet from Italy so it's upto PCW/Dixons/Curry's to get their skates on if they want me as a customer :(
