Default Cheapest 8gb Superpad on the Net + Megavideo

I'm interested in the Tablet's market since centuries .

I'm really intersted in the Superpad II FT3 with the incredibile Tim ROM4E...

I would like to buy it and I've found shipped with DHL (this is what i want no EMS or HKP) at about 180 dollars with a 6000 (two 3000?) battery with 8Gb memory.

I've heard talking about clones not compatible with Tim's Rom...

1. Do you know any place selling this product FT3 8GB (I don't care if it's a clone of the clone of the clone it just should work fine) with DHL less than 180 dollars (better products will be welcome).

2. Megavideo App (or Megavideo itself) works Fine?

3. ************ what kind of shipping method use?

Thank you in Advance.

Just check it is a flytouch 3, it has ONE TF slot,not two and that it has a model number of DISCO or DISCO10, it has a 5 volt power supply and you will be fine

Thank you for the answer.

The problem of the EMS shipping is that in the rest of the world last 10 days, in Italy, thanks to the great Efficiency of the "System" it last more than 30 days. The DHL meaning Deutch Post arrives in 24/48hrs.

I've found an 8GB that seems legit with the DISCO firmware shipped with DHL at 172 dollars.
The only problem is actually the battery (3800mah), but i think i will buy it from ************, watch a Tutorial and in the meanwhile use my tablet.

Oh NO!! I've checked the box.. It's SUPERPAI III. What do you think.. It's good?

You didn't answer to the question about MEGAVIDEO App, does it work? Any other working methods?

Another one is with 9v 2a. With SUPERPAD III Box and 1 TF slot. Would it be legit?

I got mine from **********.com. It says it is made by Diglex. It did say DISCO firmware
Wholesale Product Snapshot Product name is Promotional Flytouch 3 with 8GB ROM,CPU X220 ARM11 1Ghz,support GPS,Wifi,Flash,HDMI,1.3MP cam FreeShipping 1pcs by China Post. $168 delivered to the US. I think ********** is no longer selling them but they are being sold here. Shipping price is not listed.
10.2" Fly touch 3 Android 2.2 GPS 512mb RAM 8GB x220 HDMI epad support 3G GPS 8 GB Version_Tablet PC and UMPC_China Mobile Phone -Free shipping Wholesale Mobile Phones Discount - Dropship Retail Electronics - China Mobile Phone Supplier

I emailed Diglex to verify distributors and they sent me the links. So they seem to be official links for Diglex.

I upgraded to Tims 4e flawlessly last night. I have the full x600 screen and not the x576 that needs to be offset. After the ROM, It says DISCO10. I am presuming Tim's ROM did this. So far I have all of the love of IBEX for about $50 less than China Grabber.

Very nice Both!

I've actually this morning bought mine from here

The seller told me that they had a newer version, improved and with black "back" with 8000mah.

Bought from the link asking the new version (I checked the DISCO10 thing) i payed it 176 dollars (8Gb) shipped with DHL..

I think it's one of the best Deal on the net (hoping that is not a DISCO10 fake).

For the Megavideo thing, seems that everybody here don't use it so... I'll try hoping it will works.

Just using up the old boxes!!! Its what is inside that counts

It looks good giubari, DISCO model, 7000mAh battery, single external tf slot, internal tf slot......Facepad!

Wouldn't it be nice if the sellers got their adverts sorted out!! I notice the ********** adverts contain several glaring errors.. in fact, the pictures are of two different devices!!

However when it will arrive I will make a Review, because i think that the price is good, the shipment is fast and the seller is communicative.

I made a deep research that lasted more than a month, so I think i'm making a favour to all the community.

DHL is always fat. I ordered it on Monday, today He told me he had shipped it giving me temporary tracking numbers, that after custom's HK inspection, will change in International Tracking numbers (tomorrow usually).

Then 48-72hrs and i'ts home. This is DHL usual procedure.

EMS means 20-40 days.
HKP means 30-50 days.

I live in Italy.

Hi dart,

Yes, it does but the 'de minimis' rules will apply.

If the value of the goods [sent from outside the EU by letter or parcel post] is less than €150 they are admitted to the UK free of Customs Duty (but VAT is still payable). However, Customs duty is not collected if the amount of duty due is less than €10.

Hope this helps...

Regards

Hi tbod...yes...but VAT will be collected, plus the charge levied by the carrier for the inspection. Usually (but not always)the 'post' services don't inspect because of the high percentage of 'non-commercial' packages of little value, but the 'courier' services are different. They deal with a much higher percentage of business packages. For example UPS ALWAYS inspect and levy the charge, a few days after signing for a UPS delivery you will get the VAT bill through the post!...I never use a courier service for this reason...

Trouble with that is you are guilty of Tax Fraud, it is your responsibility to ensure the correct figure is quoted on the import forms - not the sellers, and admitting it on a public forum is not very clever! If you decide to utilise a carrier that has a poor track record of following up on tax collection then that is Tax Avoidance, which is not illegal, willful incorrect declaration is Tax Evasion, which is illegal.

Also....the package is NOT a gift..it is a commercial transaction.. so that's two incorrect declarations!

Granted, yes.

But this it is DHL and my experience of buying specialist computer components from America [using both DHL and FedEx] has been they haven't bothered inspecthng items / levying VAT etc. when all the paperwork was in order and the value was below [and, in some cases, slightly above] the de minimis values.

Admittedly, though, it is a few years since I have dealt with them so they may have tightened things up. Or maybe I've just been lucky...

OK....you please yourself, but one day........ The Customs people are not stupid, they are aware of the companies that routinely under-declare goods values, and they are targeted with obtaining results...especially as every government in the world is currently under financial duress..they are likely to be tightening up on every source of lost income, and lost VAT revenue is a big biggie.

My advice to you is don't set yourself up as a target...I seriously doubt anyone normally reads the declaration stickers on the packages, especially physically small packages, there must be millions of them pass through every day, but if they do it would be best if it was truthful unless you like employing lawyers to slug it out with your customs services. (you won't win)

I don't know about other countries but in US, there is no duty if the value is below $200 and it is being shipped to the buyer. In our state, we are supposed to pay taxes on items purchased over the internet. They watch Ebay and probably some of the larger public sites. Big box companies always charge tax over the internet. I am pretty sure they are aware of the China purchases but I doubt they have any way of tracking it. I really doubt they are able to track of all of the different companies selling from abroad.
