    I'm in the UK too and am patiently waiting for the black/grey version to appear in the major on-line shops.

    I don't believe that the models sold in US/UK will be different - it's just the price differential you get with purchases like this in different countries.

    Personally I would not buy from a different country because of the likelyhood of inport tax and warranty problems. I'm not even sure that a product sold in the US would have a valid warranty in the UK.

    Best to do some investigation before you go down that route.

    Edit: not to mention that it's tempting but very risky to buy from anyone that sells a product 'super cheap'.

    No don't buy from this place, far too cheap to be genuine, Months ago I make the huge mistake of buying a galaxy tab 10.1 from Bonoworld which I never got of course, fortunatly after a lot of hassle I got my bank to refund me the money

    Also even if you did order and you got it ok customs would sting you heeps

    I hope QVC may have it as a TSV soon maybe

    Can you people in UK order from Amazon.com? They have good prices and can be trusted.

    It is a good price, until you have to pay customs. Kills the point.
