Were you guys ordering 32gb or 16gb? I think the 16gb dropped in price before the 32gb ones, so it makes sense that most lower order numbers will be for 16gb?  My 32gb order is in the 1475xx and still says awaiting payment (not holding my breath, but perhaps prolonging hope)..

I had 2x32GB with an order number in the 400s and still got told 'no stock'.

I wanted to buy a 16Gb for a gift. My order on Amazon couldn't be fulfilled, Best Buy refused my payment (they were limiting to US/CAN credit cards only) and by the time Amazon told me I'd missed it was too late for B&N.

I called around late yesterday afternoon and kept getting stonewalled by, "we don't know if we will be getting stock or what price they will be even if we do get any" but the one that *really* annoys me is Noel Leeming. At 4.30pm yesterday they told me they didn't have any stocks and would not be offering them at reduced price if new stock came in. Silly me - I believed them. Not that it would have made any difference because NL in Palmerston North didn't have any stock for customers to buy  anyway. 

If anyone has spares - preferably the 16Gb - I'll happily take one off your hands.

Just an fyi guys NEVER CALL THE STORE AND ASK IF THEY HAVE THE TABLET FOR THE PRICE
because if employees see the updated price they hide the stock in the back and buy it themselves
ALWAYS GO INSTORE!!!

The other wholesaler has sold out. So its only the resellers who were allocated 10 units from Ingram left as far as I am aware. This allocation is supposed to happen later today.
To those who emailed and PM'd me, I will respond as time permits. Once the allocation comes through I will contact you in order.

I doubt anyone in NZ has any left available.

Cheers

Not happy at the moment.  I want to know if it was successful.  It's BS!!   Has anyone actually received a call confirming they have been successful?

Just called to check my order as it is a bank transfer payment I will be making, not a credit card payment meaning my order will not be updated to "paid". He said they are just going through now checking stock against orders. Apparently i'll be close, he said cross your fingers, my order number is between 147340-147345. I got told to expect and email in the next hour or two with confirmation or not.

Would be nice to get one but i'm not loosing anything if I don't. Got great customer service when I called so that's a good plus anyway.
