Like my previous deal from eBuyer but with a Free £25 giftcard to spend in the Windows store when you buy this tablet. Not sure if you can stack anymore codes on this.

Shows as £249.99? Are you deducting the windows store voucher from the headline price?

Yeah I am if you see in the description.

still £249.99 you can't deduct the £25 as that is a voucher to spend elsewhere

Then prepare to enter the freezer. You can't 'buy' this for 225... the voucher is nice, but maybe if you lsited it for 250, and free 25 quid voucher, but this is NOT 225...

This apparently has no dedicated charging port - it can only be charged via USB, and it only has one USB port. Does anyone know if it can be used with USB peripherals - keyboard, mouse, external HDD - while it is being charged (it seems other similar devices cannot)? Thanks in anticipation...

this is not available yet nor is it a deal. same price every where. seems a god tablet though.

For those who can make use of the voucher, isn't this a better deal than everywhere else taking pre-orders at the same price?

Toshiba have confirmed to me you can't do both at once

Thanks. If there's no workaround, I think that's a dealbreaker for me.

If its anything like the dell venue pro 8 there is a work around but its not easy, basically involves taking apart a usb hub, soldering a few wires and adding a switch (if there isnt already one)
