This is a copy of the post I put up on the Advent Vega thread on MoDaCo in response to a post about a possible recall/withdrawal, they have also spotted this;
This is shaping up to be an epic fail for toshiba and PCW, bet that 21 day exclusive does not look so hot now
I really like my folio, now it has flash and has been tamed with launcher pro.
I will keep it, unless the battery issue mentioned above is a safety thing. Mine does seem to leak juice on wifi!
Dont want to spoil your party, but I would think that unless Dixons Group/Advent are 100% sure that a repeat of the folio launch is not going to happen - the 18th might not be on
I mailed Dixons/PCW to ask if the Advent would have flash from launch and they stated that they had not yet been given the final specs of the device and would not like to speculate on this.
I hope it is out soon and is all it should/could be. Toshiba really would be shamed then.
I Suspect they (Toshiba/PCW staff) will all be whistling, looking furtive and saying "Toshiba folio, what’s that? Never heard of it. Would you like to buy an 8gig SD card for £49. No! ok your loss - see ya!"
