If you are, and you would be prepared to bring back an electronic item for me, please let me know.

Yes, but if you don't carry it through the customs on your person it won't exceed the 50ml you are allowed to carry on. :) Also please don't spill said coke as it's not very good for the electronics in the tablet.
And yes the Tablet is E.

Do we have to meet someone arriving from South America with your "tablet"?

South East Asia actually, they will give it to someone from Russia. Don't worry, it's totally "legit".

I can see one of those jokes doing the rounds on Twitter coming of this...

The customs officer asked me I was carrying any drugs, I pointed to my tablet and drink bottle and said E and some Coke. We laughed and laughed, and now I'm in jail.

EDIT: I could use a tech-mule too if anyone is actually going over there...

Sounds like the start of a special postage service, maybe someone entrepreneurial like Nate would be interested in the name.

Yeah, remember that Wellington woman who went to South America for her beloved whom she'd never met? I can't believe how gullible some people are.
