Umm... Yeah. I mean the *current* iPad, not iPad2, of course. Resolution: 2048-by-1536.

This is 1280x800 per the specs on woot. Should be able to do 720p.

Did you want a worse display? Or maybe you meant the current 3rd gen/new ipad, which is 2048x1536.

I buy now and then from Woot, and was scrolling through all the recent Woots - they are all tagged as "sold out" - is that legit, do they really sell out when marked sold out, are there ever any days when the result is "sale ended" without sold out?

Think they tag it as "sold out" when it's really sold out but also when the deal expires.

However, I do respect Woot for even allowing these type of comments. I am not a big fan of new owners AMZ because of the way they treat sellers on their site.



I agree with most of what you said but I don't have any knowledge of how Amazon treats it's sellers.I like the much quicker delivery of Woot purchases since they got involved though.

Looking forward to ICS OS the USB port and sd mem card slot will be a nice change of pace from my ipad (3rd gen)

I paid the extra $8 for delivery by Tuesday... I think it was $5 for Wednesday delivery... regular delivery was then either Thursday or Friday for me (Illinois), although that may change depending on location....I think all of Woot's deliveries come out of Dallas, so closer to there should be faster

Anyone know how much watts this tablet draw when charging? Just want to know so I can get the correct inverter. Don't want to over spent or get one that can't handle the watts usage.

Don't have one already, though I bought one during the sale too.
I also didn't find the info in a cursory glance in the usual places, but some math helps here...

Specs show the tablet has a 5000mAh battery, and that it can fully charge in 5 hours.
"mah", for the uninitiated, is "milliamp-hours, so 5000mAh is the same as 5Ah (amp hours).
If the charger than fill a 5Ah battery in 5 hours, it's charging at 1A, plus any inefficiencies in the charger block, and the fact that the charge time probably takes into account the device being on at the time.

*ESTIMATES BASED ON ASSUMPTIONS AND PERHAPS FAULTY LOGIC*
So, let's say that the power block is only 50% efficient, and that you need to double the power to charge while it's on. 4A, let's call it 5, and it likely charges that built-in Li-Ion cell at around 4.2-5V. You're looking at around 25W

I'd make sure your inverter was good for several amps, but I'd imagine that nearly anything from rat-shack or the like would suffice. Most people buying 3-prong inverters are looking to power laptops with them, and this is certainly going to take up less juice than that.

Bought one early in the morning and added Next Day delivery. Reply said they would send tracking number and post in my account. No E-mail, no number.

First time I've done next day. Is it reliable even though they didn't sending tracking info?

Oh dear me now I still have 1 question. Do they sell something like a chain so I can hook this around my neck? I think I may sleep with it so I hope it doesn't snore or sleep walk. LOL

Why would you have the info already?

The sale was on FRIDAY until midnight central time, and they don't ship on weekends. Give them the ONE business day to actually ship them out, which should be Monday, then you'll get it on Tuesday.

Honestly now...

I have never had a problem with my mastercard (I do live in the US), as a matter of fact I some how ordered 3 of these tablets when I only wanted one. Woot did remove 2 of them and I should get one tomorrow, crossing my fingers.

Just checked order details again and it still says expected delivery of Monday August 6.

I just figured that for those that request Next Day, that they would ship some before the sale is actually over.

I requested next day shipping and got the e-mail this morning that it had shipped and had a confirmation number. Not sure what it means for your order, if anything, but thought I'd share.

Thanks for letting me know. I just checked, and no e-mail yet. Maybe by tomorrow morning. All is well.

For Next Day, do they use UPS or FedEx?

Does anyone happen to know if Sony will be getting Jelly Bean to work with the Tablet S?

So. Waiting for an answer, I grew sort of impatient and took the liberty of asking Sony eSupport about the OS update.




I hope so.

11:50 EDT Sunday night, I have received an e-mail saying it has shipped and here's your tracking number. Go to the USPS site, says "Delivery status information is not available for your item via this web site. A return receipt after mailing may be available through your local Post Office." I need to be the one to get the mail...I still haven't told hubby.

Give it until mid-day today to see if it updates. It may take a bit for it to get scanned into their system.

I'm betting we'll have these delivered before the USPS tracking shows anything. I've never had any luck with their worthless tracking system. I wish Woot would use UPS or FedEx. I paid to have it delivered today but I'm not holding my breathe.

That explains it. I got two tracking numbers as well. Both UPS. Smaller weight pacakage (I assume the cradle) was shipped Friday, one-day shipping. The second package says that on Sunday night, it was changed from delivery on Tuesday, to Monday.

Both say on the truck for Delivery.

We shall see.... UPS usually comes around 2:30.
