Where to buy your Vega!

Hi, first post here, I've recently come across the Vega and it looks perfect for me, been into my local Currys and had a play with the demo machine etc.

I've been holding off buying for the last week whilst I research on this forum it's various foibles, however I just read a thread which mentioned it being pulled?

Since I read that I checked availability at my local Currys, none in stock :)

I guess my question is, is the Vega being pulled, or am I just unlucky my local store doesn't have any stock? I'll be pretty gutted if I can't get one anymore :rolleyes:

I heard it was being pulled as well.

No stores in my town or surrounding area have any in stock

Will cooked roms make the baby grow?

Definately. My PoV Mobii can now do the exact same things my phone can do. (Except for stuff for which it does not have the hardware: 3G, GPS, and phone calls.) The forum (and internet) contains all information you have to know; for some stuff you may have to search for explanations, depending on your experience with custom ROM's and Android.

In short: without knowing about Corvus5 and R8 as custom ROM's in advance, I would never have bought this thing. It's crippled with the default software, but when modded, it flies.

Hi ! My post was many days ago ! Now running Vegacomb 1.6 @ 1,5 mhz ! Flash working with some tweaks ( gestures ) . Definately a completely different device, resolution is also increased in last release of HComb.

I've been watching all DSG websites for stock over the 2 last weeks.

As of today, all sites say it is no longer available. That could just mean they are finally out of stock in all stores across the country or maybe something related to the Exciting News thread is about to happen!?!

Now not even listed on any DSG site.

Even if this is a case of only listing products currently in stock above say 100 spread around the shops it's still

a bit odd if the claim that new stock is due in soon is accurate as it gives the impression that it's no longer available

Is that supposed to be a special deal if you buy a Vega fromDixon, £271.98p with a Mifi?

The Three Mifi is £71.99p anyway so the saving for this bundleis a great big Zilch.dry.gif

Plenty of stock online at the moment.

Also worth a note, the accessories are discounted as well (not from pcworld though??), so the dock for example is £25 and 10% off with a vega, £22.50 for the dock is well worth it in my oppinion.

Dock and vega work out at £222.48 delivered, plus a fiver odd back from quidco.

If you got it tax free , then you paid too much.

But its not tax free in dixons at the airport, just slightly discounted from high street prices

Still £20 cheaper than Dixons website. (I know it should be £40 cheaper if it's tax free, but that's the rip-off that is tax free)
