I thought whilst out I would pick up one of the el cheapo HP Plus form Noel Lemmings I had read about them being a bit under powered and grainy screen etc but hey $149 and a free16gb sd card Cant go wrong!

Yes you can

There is no Bluetooth in either model

No seriously there isnt ....I know what you are saying who would produce something without Bluetooth!!!

Oh well assumption is a dangerous game

Back it goes tomorrow

I'd be asking who would reasonably expect bluetooth in any tablet worth $149.

Considering 99% of people would never use Bluetooth on their phone or tablet it's the most obvious thing to cut when building a low cost product.

With suppliers making every attempt to sell us everything and anything with bluetooth especially speakers I would have thought it was the first thing they would keep!

Can you really take it back just because it doesn't have Bluetooth?
Did the salesperson tell you it did?

Thats intresting is that just in NZ? I was under the impression that with the law and mobile phones bluetooth was almost a given?

For sure ! they have a 14day no questions asked return policy and also the amount I buy from them they would want to keep me happy.
