Finally taken the plunge and ordered the phone from here:

Its a bit late but paid extra for next day delivery in the hope it will show up tomorrow :P

No idea if it will arrive tommorrow but my all time epic delivery story is as follows .. in 2000 I was working in the US in California and before returning decided to buy a laptop. Best price I found was from a company on the East Coast. Dithered for a bit whether to buy or not but decided to buy and got order in at 8:55pm pacific time = 11:55pm east coast time - company claimed a "order by midnight for next day delivery". Didn't really believe this and as it was a friday assumed next day would be monday and realistically I was looking at tuesday. Imagine the amazement when we came back from shopping onsaturday morning to find a card saying a package had been delivered next door for me at 11:30am! Looked into the delivery and turned out the company had a warehouse co-located with fedex in Indiana so as soon as my order had come in it had been picked and put straight on a place to Oakland and from there onto a a van to deliver to me in Cupertino ... now thats what I call delivery!

Sent them an email after ordering and was dispatched today for delivery tomorrow :P

If it turns up that will be amazing service!

Can't wait to get stuck in, going to see if I can port a Gingerbread Style Theme or get the original creator to help (if he wants to/has the time)

I'm still waiting for mine from the carphone warehouse.

I got the "thanks for the order we're taking your money" over a week ago :D

If yours turns up ok I'll cancel my order and try from the Modaco approved distributer :D

shame man, hope you gonna get your phone tomorrow!!

I am considering to get this phone as an upgrade from blade. but wife wants me to get a proper phone (i.e. galaxy S II) instead... she doesn't want me keep buying cheap Chinese phones and upgrade every 10 month... (pulse > blade > Ideos X5)

Anyone think the Galaxy S II will last over 18 month?

The man from carphone warehouse says I will get mine tomorrow :D

Would they have said that whenever I phoned? :D

One of those mysteries that only time travel would reveal :o

Oh no, received a thank you for your order "Orders processed successfully will be delivered to your selected Carphone Warehouse store within 3 working days* of receiving your dispatch email."

He lied! who'd have thunk it
