want one

CPW have a price promise to beat any of their rivals by £1. I'm not sure if that includes Argos ? I've been waiting for the price to drop again after buying 2 of these from amazon a week or so ago (but they limited you to 2 and have 3 daughters !)

Cheaper @ Tescos no?

any idea from when it will be available at this price really dont want to miss out again

Good price but I hate the fact there's no back button, home button. Yeah I know you can get to them but having played about with the Kindle Fire I found it awkward getting out of books and back to the home screen. Just my opinion.

CPW have a price promise to beat any of their rivals by £1 and they have them listed at £109 currently. They claim that nobody on the High Street can beat them ?
Been waiting for the price to drop to £99 again after buying 2 from amazon during their price drop. Thanks for the heads up

You should wait to see if you win it in the flamedeer competition.

great price

nice one..just reserved mine

Heat

how have you reserved it is still 129

Not bad for £99. Be aware though that this isn't a usual Android experience, it's heavily locked down and designed for Amazon to make money from you, that should be expected/obvious though.

I don't like the Amazon locked in experience, i,e. no Play Store for obvious reasons, lack of camera so no Skype. No GPS, no card slot. You can easily beat the spec of this tablet, but you have to go for a Chinese tablet such as the NATPC X2.

I'd seriously consider a Blackberry Playbook at this price though, even with its lack of apps.

If you're lucky

dam i bought one from
argos for £129 last week. xmas pressie for my mum. wud i be able to return it for refund then re-buy at £99?

great offer

just reserved and collected mine tonight. Got home, sat down and saw the advert. This was a xmas pressie. I wonder if I can take it back tomorrow and ask for £30.00 back.

I was hopeing my 3rd Flamedeer was hear to win one:(

Good deal but not spectacular. Worth spending more for either HD version or, better still, Nexus 7. Screen resolution is disappointing on the standard version.

Cold, can get one for free at HUKD if I hit F5 a couple millions times per day for the rest of the month.

There is no 'physical' home button/back button, you have to navigate via the screen.

hi will this be a better screen, quicker internet etc than my hp touchpad?

Erk broke the bank with PS3/PS Vita etc, bloody Amazon. Child will hate not having a proper tablet so thought I could get this as a 'house present'!! lol like I'll get a look in! What do you reckon this or the Galaxy with cash back? Seems a great deal for 89 quid for what we'd use it for but used to the freedom of an android phone (its taken over it with free game downloads) not sure how restrictive this is with Amazon's lock ins? Help! I do think this might be more productive/ educational when he has so much entertainment wise around anyway, the innotab last about 5 days in interest and what a rip off for games and downloads etc it was! I wouldn't recommend one to anybody! get a security savvy proper one!

how have you reserved it is still 129



You pay the price it is on the day you collect it, so if it is £99 tomorrow that's what you will get it for. Just reserved mine too!

ANYGOOD

Agreed, the whole thing smacks far too much of Apple-Lock for me to consider it. The whole point of Android is for it to be open. It can of course be crowbarred open but there's still no back/home button, you'd have to compromise screen real estate to get them. Nice for the kids to mess about with though I suppose.

When is the voucher offer on until? Can you use a flash drive to expand the memory on these?
