I have the TF101 - I love the IPS display and the 10.1 inch screen is great for Hulu. Tempted, but can't justify when I already have a working ASUS tablet (even if it is a little old).

The iPad Woot is selling is new. The price you found was a refurb. I would love to be proven wrong with links though.

This iPad does have the old connector though, the newer of this generation have the A6X chip and the "Lightning" connector.

You may wish to contact support@woot.com and see if they have any options for you.

I'm just hanging out, really.

I've confirmed that the ones we are selling here are indeed new.

I don't know. It seems like the only way I would get a tablet is if I could also use it as a cell phone. I thought these were suppose to replace laptops yet I don't see HDMI or USB ports.

I don't see the need for a tablet just yet.

Did the iPad sell out or was it pulled? It shows sold out but there are no sales stats.

The Asus has micro HDMI, the Motorolas all have micro HDMI and micro USB, and the Velocity, Sony and Polaroid all have micro USB

actually you can use them as free VOIP phones. Pretty easy to setup if you are at all computerologically inclined. A quick google search on "anrdroid free voip" should get you started. So while not truly a "cell phone" more like a free wifi phone.

So maybe this is a stupid question, but uh...what color is the refurb TF300T that's currently available?

I'm buying one regardless, but want to make sure I order the matching keyboard dock...

Decent deal on the Xyboard 8.2. $301.00 on the Mothership (amazon)

Just wanna throw my two cents in, that mini Bluetooth keyboard is great if you have a use for it. It's solid and they keys are "clicky" and not "mushy". About the size of a credit card, albeit thicker. Only downside is it uses USB mini instead of USB micro.

I haven't tried it with a desktop OS but it has Windows keys on it. Works great with Android.

Hmm

Yea, I can see by the size of the USB plug next to it that it's small, but specs say 8" x 3" x 2" and that's double what it looks like! Was going to buy if 8" long, but looks like a credit card... and how can it be 2" thick?? That makes no sense...

I’m pretty sure, based on the sales stats, there were exactly two of these Polaroid tablets available.

8"x3"x2" is probably the dimensions of the box it ships in.. Grandmax doesn't seem to list the dimensions for it at all. Wal-Mart has dimensions listed on theier website, but I don't think they're correct either. It has it at 8.25"x1.8"x8.0". All of the reviews of it I've seen have been fairly positive though.

Has anyone heard if the Sony Tablet P is AT&T branded or the Sony box?

I'm not sure how true this is but I heard the AT&T branded ones may not have the ability to upgrade(w/o rooting) to ICS compared to the Sony boxed.

Can anyone confirm?

I can't get it to pair with my Incredible 2. It says "paired but not connected" and won't type anything when I open up a message or word doc. Works great with my ipod, but I wanted to use it with a computer at home and I can't get that to work either. It pairs but nothing happens when I press the keys. Are there other drivers I can use? All that came on my CD are "Nokia Wireless Keyboard Application" and "Windows Mobile" drivers.

Good afternoon Wooters! Has anyone received their Sony tablet yet? I received what I thought would be the tablet and the case, but it turned out it was just the case, (sigh!). Woot had similar problems with the regular Sony tablet a while back where Wooters were only receiving the cases while the actual tablet came much later. I hope to receive the actual tablet soon.

Had the same thing today- just the case arrived. I emailed them and got a prompt response saying they will give tracking #s as soon as they ship. I was not given an ETA.

Haven't received anything yet; still says it's awaiting shipment, but they charged my credit card on January 30th! I also emailed customer service, but they could not provide any additional info, no time frame, etc. Ugh!

Turns out they emailed you yesterday - you may want to check your spam folder to see if the reply fell in there. Do let us know!

I did receive an email yesterday from support staff at Woot and appreciate the quick response, but it only said "I'm sorry for the delay, but unfortunately, we're not able to provide any updated information on your order just yet, as it's being shipped by one of our vendors. Once it ships you'll receive the tracking information via email." I've checked my inbox and spam to see if there were any other emails from Woot or the vendor but do not see anything. I was hoping to have this to take with me when I travel next week, but now I don't even know when it will ship.

Do you guys know an ETA on the Sony Tablet P's shipping? It's been over a week and not a word.

You should see a tracking number in STUFF YOU BOUGHT. Looking at the tracking, it looks like it was delivered Wednesday.

Just like someone else had posted, I too thought that's what I was tracking but it turned out to only be the case. I emailed Woot! regarding this and I was told it will ship in a separate order.

Do you have any idea when the actual tablets will ship out?

I should have realized that it was just the case when I look back at shipping details at item dimensions 9x6x1.

No but I'll email in to check. Just FYI, residential FedEx (if used) doesn't update stuff on Mondays so it might be Tuesday before you see an update.

If you find out an update please let me know. I'll keep an eye out for a tracking # as well early this week.

It's been nearly 2 weeks and still not a word on receiving or tracking the actual tablet itself. What is going on?
