If your in the US, why not buy a few Viewsonic G-Tablets for us.. :(
They simular spec and price ($300/£240) at the mo... ;)


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 :(

The Currys website has had stock intermittently over the last couple of weeks. I held off ordering when they did have stock as I didn't want it turning up when I was not around. There is some hope of stock coming soon then, I guess.

all lies i tell ya, :( there's none in STORES tho.. just checked both local PCW & Currys, only online orders and there are NONE in stock, they are being pre-ordered direct from overseas, so everyone still going to have to wait..

I suspect at this rate I'll be getting the G-Tablet instead as this is available to me now..

Just did the same :(

3-5 day delivery seemed to be the only option for me though, from PC World. Hoping it's not quite that slow...

i got mine from the Dixons website and they are saying the same delivery estimate.. they have sent be a few emails so far saying that it's ready for delivery though, so hopefully that means they have the stock and it will be here for about Wednesday (not counting sat, Sun and Mon as "Working Days")

Can't wait though, i'll be reading up on all i can until then ;)

I bit the bullet and did mine online as well, but have NO e-mails yet for any confirmation ;) but it's in the online account info....

BTW the ADVENT10 code still gets you £10 off :(

Whoops ;)

I figure Paul deserves the £10 I saved on my Vega for his ROM development, and I'm sure I can chip in some code as well ;)
Definatly going to play with A2SD+ and data2ext that I have on my phones with the Vega (if/when it arrives lol)..
