I'm happy, I love a new toy Smile There are some upgrades in the menu and the touch screen is good and the text crisper. Being able to light the screen as well when you need/want to is good, it's a really good even light and doesn't glare.

Well mine hasn't arrived and I'm not happy. Paid for it to be delivered before we go on holiday. No tracking info in the email.

Sarah, did yours arrive by courier or Royal Mail ? Our new postie has started dumping packages by the door, ringing the bell and walking off....

That isn't good Bri, I ordered next day delivery and got an email from Amazon yesterday to say it was on it's way by DPD, then had a tracking email and another this morning to give me the hour slot for delivery.

Will do Sarah, from what I've briefly seen of it it looks quite nice Grin

Hmmm. I ordered next day as well...

That's odd. When I ordered mine, it had "free delivery" or "next day" (which I paid for). Now it's showing "free", "First Class (up to 2 days)" and "expedited".
So much for the "get it the day it comes out" promise.

That's a shame. If you are shopping PC world have the 16G Nexus for 169

That's odd, usually Amazon are really good if you've paid for next day. Did you get a dispatch email yesterday?

If you buy regularly from Amazon Bri, consider their 'Prime' Service. 45 a year - and they've never missed one 'Next Day' for me. (FTIW Wink)

(I run 'Fire' on my Blackberry 'Playbook' via the Android Emulator that v2+ OS offers. It's excellent)

Yeah, I got the dispatch email, but it's been sent Royal Mail, and it now says "up to 2 business days" so I will wait and see if it arrives tomorrow.

I pre-ordered a Kindle Fire HD. It has apparently been on the van 'out for delivery' since 0830 this morning. Not holding out much hope now.
