Another customer with dissapointing experience with the Play store (UK).
First nexus: both samsung seals open & power button semi-broken (can only operate by pressing hard with the nail).
Second nexus: both samsung seals open & major backlight leakage
Asked the UK call centre if they could send one that was new (i.e., had unbroken seals) and was told that they could not guarantee this. Instead, I was told I could ask for another replacement (hoping it was sealed) or ask for a refund.
As others have pointed out in this thread - it seems like they are sending out returned tablets as new...
The approach taken by google here seems rather unfortunate. I really like the Android platform and much prefer it to iOS. However, I also need a highres tablet and at the moment it looks like the iPad retina will give most bang for the back (inifity t700 is too expensive). I really really would rather be on Android but the Q/A for the nexus 10 seems atracious.
I'm going to MWC in Barcelona on February 25th and I am really really hoping that Samsung will show off the next Galaxy Tab (Tab 3) and it will blow the Nexus 10 out of the water! Then I'll just go and buy it!!
