An Post delivered mine today.

Looked like someone sat on the box but the tablet was fine inside.

Very nice for the money. Screen is great and its very fast and responsive.

Maybe a little overkill for eBook reading but it handles big PDF manuals and magazines with ease.

Only had it a day but no issues yet

I tried with the one that I purchased for a family member and it didn't pick up the sim card.

so that's 3 reports of the sim functionality not working. I wonder if it's disabled or something.

Poland warehouse was out of stock so ordered from Spain. Have ordered from Poland before and no problems. Have emailed An Post and dhl, dhl responded with a not our problem reply and typically An Post are silent. Have opened a paypal claim.

SIM not working for me either... Found the below in a techtablets review.

Just when you thought the Chinese 9.7-inch retina tablets where all but gone and dead. Voyo is back with one and this is still a decent screen, the 9.7″ 4:3 ratio 1536 x 2048 “retina” screen. It looks to be fully laminated with 2.5D glass in a thin 8.5mm shell. The tablet is called the Voyo i8 and is powered by now all too common Chinese tablet/mobile chipset the Helio X27. So it will make calls, dual SIM 4G but it doesn’t have all the common EU bands like band 20 which isn’t great but it has at least band 1, 7 and 3 LTE which many EU countries use.

that's not a review tho - he never had a tablet to review.

even then should connect on 3g or even 2g. not picking up sims at all.
