Just thought id mention that one of the handy things about the 7.0 plus and 7.7 galaxy tabs is that there is inbuilt flashlights! I only learned that earlier.

To do this go into settings and under accessibility there is a flashlight option. Handy for when using the tablet in bed at night!

As soon as the item was shipped i got a mail off them with the Ups tracking number which i could follow on the Ups website. As they state, they incur any import duties/tax, so there wasn't any nasty surprise when the Ups guy arrived at the door. I'd have no hesitation buying off them again

The tab was in some Asian language when i did the setup, i think there may have been an option to change to English there and then, but i may have missed it. Anyway i got through the setup and then figured to go into settings and the Locale and Input Tab where the first option was to change the language. Got the 16gb wifi version as i didnt see the point paying extra for i can tether my android phone if needs be, though the 3g version was only around 80 euro extra for someone who wants that option
so it was 408 euro? plus shipping

no import tax?

Nope. Well it was 434 for me, but exchange rates have changed a bit since then, so now it should come in around 420 inc. delivery

Im tempted now :O

8.9 would be the sweet spot for me though mainly due to the way it docks. Due to the massive delay in these tabs coming out Im a little worried they might be out dated soon enough.........the 7.7 with that screen/design doesnt seem to run the same risk however and at that price!

decisions decisions

manual_man, I just went for it there as the price on that site was very reasonable. I'm having doubts now though about my haste. Of course I head over to xda AFTER it shipped to check on the Rom update status but was instead horrified to read all of the screen problems encountered

has your's manifested any of these problems? seems to affect them all :-/

I honestly can't say I've noticed any problems. The 7.7's screen is the best I've seen on any tablet. I use it for browsing, photos, videos, and apps of course. All good
