Having missed out on the HMV deal for the 8gb tablets, I've been on a bit of a mission. I've had no luck at either Carphone Warehouse or Tesco who have been selling them for £150. Both said that they are out of stock and unable to say whether they will be getting more in.
I chanced across this at PC World. Listed at £179.99 for the 16gb which isn't a bad price anyway, but also with 10% off at the moment if ordered online (no store collection for this price).
This is my first deal, so I've probably made all sorts of mistakes...sorry!
