What's wrong with import, you are still getting a good price

May have to pay import charges too

Product Description
Ship from US. List price dose NOT include any VAT and customs duty. Buyer need to pay VAT and customs duty.

Won't be easy to return when the casing cracks like mine did - it's a common fault, just Google it!

Also, £89 from Amazon in August Firesale was a hot deal. £189 now isn't hot.

Touchépad.

OP needs to give an indication of taxes to be paid on this. The vat alone will be £38.

Nice of you to link to this, but I would strongly recommend people don't bother installing it until a full and stable release comes out. Linking people to a flakey Alpha release is probably not the best idea considering many the issues many people are having with it and those who aren't familiar with flashing roms etc could well end up bricking it. I have seen numerous people getting stuck putting Vegacomb on their Advent Vega's and that IS stable and relatively easy to do (and unbrickable)
For the Touchpad I will be waiting on ICS Cyanogen - eta January.

It's not really that flaky, sure it has a couple of issues but in all honesty, given the time they turned it around in its actually very good. I've been using it since alpha 1 and other than poor battery life and a few skype issues as a daily driver it does me proud.

Also, eta January for ICS stable on the touchpad is a little optimistic.

Lots of issues with the android build, I am prob selling mine with hp case for 150.00 on the bay, as have a netbook and a smart phone and a macbook, so dont really need mine anymore.

As others have stated, putting Android on it does work but it's far from usable.

Agreed, very usable. Depends what you want to do with it really.

This looks awesome

Agreed, it's very usable. I'm more than happy on alpha 2.

Worst thing for me is the battery life has been shortened, although it will still last a full shift at work, where i do very little, and read/browse an awful lot on it.

Cold deal though due to taxes etc.

Nowhere did I say it was unusable.Nor did I say a stable release of ICS would be in January.
As for a couple of issues, you must be reading a different forum to me then - Rootzwiki has loads of issues listed,practically every other post mentions them - constant crashing,boot looping,poor wifi & FC's.
I wasn't trying to be nasty, I just suggested it may not be a good idea especially for people who are less experienced in ROM's, I have seen plenty of arguments on here over the Advent vega - people often require things to work well when putting Roms on and often get stuck when doing it. Even the developers say not to expect too much from it, and advise beginners not to put it on.

I never said I frequented any forums, I can only talk about my experiences with it, other than battery life as I mentioned before, occasionally having to switch the wifi off and back on and skype audio being messed up I have absolutely none of the problems you mentioned and I use mine every day. There are a few apps that I've tried that just wont work but you expect that with an alpha release. I can't say i've encountered any FCs. I see far more problems with my HD2 running CM. You always have the option of booting back into webOS or removing the alpha completely. The instructions for installing it are simples but you're right, if the installation scares you or you cant follow the instructions you're probably best not installing it.

it got real cold in here

... why waste time on the touchpad at this price with the chance of a half running pre honeycomb hacked android o/s ... there have been/will be £250 deals on top brand android 3 tablets ... at £100 ish incl vat and duty the touchpad is worth a punt at >£200 its not worth wasting time and money on ...
