I think you might be better dealing straight with sony.

I'm so excited. Should be getting it today. I mainly wanted it for the IR, I'd had settled for the HTC Rezound smartphone, but that would have came with extra stuff; data plan, battery life would drain like crazy, etc.. My choices were limited to the Galaxy tab or this one, but having had negative experiences with my Galaxy s phone, I'm skeptical about Samsung. Plus their responses to critism have been lacking. To respond to consumers complaining about GPS issues with their phones and older tabs with a "hey it's not a gps device like TomTom," is bad. I saw the Nexus 7 and while lightning fast, I still wanted something with IR. Had the price not dropped this low I probably would not have bought it, but this low, hell yeah.

Received my Tablet yesterday, but the cradle is still on route. Initially I had problem connecting to my Wi-fi with password protection, so I changed my internet access to public and updated my tablet to ICS. After updating my tablet, I can finally connect to my Wi-Fi with password protection. If you have problem connecting to your Wi-Fi, please update your tablet to the new Android version.

How many tracking numbers does your order have?

Review

The tablet is very light compared to the iPad, but the brightness level favors the iPad. Running Netflix on the Sony Tablet is amazing. Viewing HD videos on youtube is sharp and crisp. Battery life is not as good as iPad. As soon as you receive your tablet, update it ASAP to enjoy the full performance.

I have 2 tracking numbers. One is with USPS, the other is with Fedex. If you click on your tracking number and get an error, copy and paste that number to the fedex instead.

Will someone from Woot Staff please elaborate on how this thing is being shipped?
Is it coming in one box or two? Should we get one tracking number or two?
Where's the Hotel????

WOOT needs to change their picture of a delivery truck driving off with some boxes falling out of the car haha. That picture is not very assuring for the buyers. It is located at the top right corner.

USPS delivered the tablet and dock yesterday in a single box. I'm new to the Android OS and having fun learning to navigate in it. So far I've updated to Android 4 (ICS) and installed a bunch of apps that are also on my wife's Kindle Fire. May report back when I've had a chance to play with it some more.

Thanks! If the link had been any more obvious I would have tripped over it! Exciting news about the warrenty cost- Square Trade emails discount codes on Tuesdays for discounts. I called and asked about signing up for their email. The customer service rep gave me a code for a 30% discount! So, it was $44.09 bucks (I signed up for the ADH coverage- spill/drop, etc. option). Feel free to call, it's worth a try to save 30%...

Same issue as some people above. One tracking number, for USPS, which turned out to be the cradle. No word on the tablet. It would be nice to have a tablet...

Ordered 1 tablet/cradle, I was provided only 1 tracking number. Today, only the cradle arrives and the tracking number shows as delivered.

What gives? Where's the tablet? I see others in this situation got two tracking numbers, but I only got one.

Does 4.3 lbs/2.0 kg indicate the combined weight of both the tablet and the cradle?

According to Fedex, my cradle weighed 2.0 lbs. Still haven't received a tablet or a 2nd tracking number.

My "cradle only" box's tracking number has 1.3 lbs/.6 kg. So I would say yours is at least the tablet, maybe both.

That sounds about right. I received the cradle yesterday at a little over a pound. Received the tablet today at about 3.1 pounds.

I found that my unit was almost totally discharged so onto the cradle it went for a total recharge. I have a screen protector and case on the way from Amazon ... but I forgot to buy a 32GB SDHC card.

Was wondering what others are using to expand the memory to 64GB. The additional 32GB (the card) is where I plan to store all my movies, music, etc.

This is the case and screen protector that I ordered

I gave one of my brothers the 32GB micro class 10 SDHC card (with adapter) and will probably use one of my 16GBs until I order another one. Perhaps I can offer to trade down to the 16GB class 4....lol..

I got an email from Woot that seems to imply that the tablet hasn't shipped yet. I wonder how many of us are in this boat.

Thanks fr the explanation that the second package might be shipping FEDEX. I received cradle yesterday by USPS and the tablet seems to be vacationing in Dallas this week.

I only got the cradle as well! The tracking number links to UPS but the cradle and tablet are being shipped by different companies! Very confusing. I have an estimated arrival date of August 13th... boo.. getting the cradle a week ahead of the tablet is torture.

Ordered: Aug 3
Shipped: Aug 6 (after 7pm)
Expected Del: Aug 11

9 days total? 5 of them the actual tablet spent in the hot @$$ Texas heat to get from Dallas to San Antonio?

I could have driven and picked it up in half a freaking day.

Also, it is fairly disheartening to see no OFFICIAL answer on how this was supposed to be shipped... c'mon, one or two packages? Are we supposed to have two tracking numbers or one? These are fairly simple questions.

Ok, got the scoop on how these are shipping. They shipped one of two ways based on where you are located.

From Woot Warehouse: These orders will ship in one package and are shipped via SmartPost. That's where FedEx delivers the package to your post office who then delivers it to you. Allow 3-5 days for shipping once the item leaves our warehouse.

From FBA*: These are shipped as two separate packages with two different tracking numbers via UPS or USPS (again depending on where you're located). If you have only one tracking number, contact service@woot.com for help with the 2nd tracking number.

To see which way yours is shipping, keep an eye on the order details in "Stuff You Bought". When the item is shipped, the tracking numbers will be posted there and they will direct you to the correct site for tracking.

*FBA = Fulfillment by Amazon. When using FBA, we instruct our vendor to deliver the product to one or more fulfillment centers from which the product will then be shipped. Please note that we are not part of the Prime or Super Saver Shipping program. Do not contact Amazon about shipping. They won't know anything.

I did that, but they were unable to give me a second tracking number. Has my tablet even shipped?

I ordered mine first thing in the morning and the tablet didn't even sell out. It seems like I should be somewhere near the first to ship, but it seems that many have received theirs and mine hasn't even shipped!
