WOW! a recall, there must be a significant H/W problem that they can't get around with a firmware update.

Unexpected and highly embarrassing for Toshiba. This will be big news if they do it!

Or a shop droid who has no real information. Plenty of us seem to have minimised the problems, but if they need to re-image all their current UK stock, I can imagine that might take some time. DSG are still selling them through pixmania, at a premium (£350, I think)

apparently there is nothing much wrong with the hardware, a dev at xda has been cooking his own rom, and most of the problems are being resolved at a software level!

When I went in to PCW today, the chap also mentioned a full recall. I quizzed him about it and he said that is his understanding, a full recall - may just be flowering up the withdrawal thing though.

Although, If the tosh is i need of a serious bit of flashing to rectify all the issues, they may err on the side of caution and do them all in the factory.

Not all customers would be willing/happy to flash new ROM's and if the power on volume press thing is not done right you end up with a brick - the Dev on XDA found that out the hard way, but seems to have overcome that now and is doing a great job – market is already done!

Don't know if the Tosh update utility would be able to cope with low level rom flashes, the chaps on XDA seem to be all over it and would know I am sure.

Question is, will you give it back if they ask for it? B)

you should check out my mod, it solves pretty much all the software issues, and suddenly Toshiba is not that bad at all :-)

I am very happy with the device now, and Galaxy Tab can go F... o.. , this one is definately perfect, and of course can be improved.!
