    I might have missed the GearBest preorder sale for $248 by a day. Looking to get the Windows 10 version, but with its ambiguous release date, resellers seem to be fluctuating on their pricing.

    Where’s the cheapest place to get it right now?

     

    Thanks in advance!

    Not sure, you could try Aliexpress or Banggood. Some sites are reporting it will be out today in China. And others now say the second week of January, either way I have it ordered so I will let you know if mine ships. I ordered mine from GearBest on special.

    Yeah I think release is closer to the second week of January. No Aliexpress vendors carry it yet, and Banggood has it as “Notify Only.”

    Kind of a drag, I was hoping to grab one sooner rather than later!

    i had mine preordered at gearbest also. They charged my card (Dec 21) so they said it should ship 3-10 days after that. Hopefully it ships out soon.

     

    Any idea if it’ll be a good idea to do a fresh install of win10 once we get it?

    Shouldn’t need a fresh install. Just as is it should be fine.

    @Chris, out of curiosity, did your preorder from GearBest ship out yet?

    I’m not Chris, but i’ll just throw in another data point. I haven’t got my order shipped from Gearbest yet. I asked their customer service about it, but talking to them is like talking to a brick wall. There was an article recently that said the 64gb models sold out in 60 seconds (not from GB, but just in general from Xiaomi). I’m guessing GB didn’t get enough stock to fulfill their first wave and I’m pushed back till late january with the second wave. Hope I’m wrong and they get stock soon.

    Yeah hearing about the continued stock issues from the Gearbest folks elsewhere on this forum kinda scares me. Thinking about saying “screw it” and just placing an order with Geekbuying.

    Was planning to wait out for a review on the Windows version of the tab but am leaving for a trip and really needed a compact workstation.  Both of the Chuwi tablets are looking enticing, though…

    I guess whatever will get it to you first.  I was looking at those Chuwi and Teclast 8″ versions also. Not bad for 1/2 the price of the mipad2. Not as sexy, but not nearly as much risk either.

    Not yet, it’s not released yet. Nobody has it in stock. The lastest update is it might be out mid to end of this month now. Xiaomi keep pushing it back and they are sold out of all models now.

     

    So it’s going to be a long wait… Geatbest, Geekbuying, Alixpress its all the same, communication is bad. Only Xiaomi themselves will know when it’s finally out. At least with BG and GB I have paypal protection.

    Damn, that sucks. I went ahead and placed a pre-order with Geekbuying, hope their estimate of the units arriving mid-month is accurate.

    Well it’s been past 7 days and still no shipping notification. Not really surprised.

    No well nobody has it, Xiaomi still hasn’t released it. Some sites now say the 25th, only the 64GB Android version was out and it sold out in 5 minutes. I just hope it comes soon.

    If anyone’s ships please let me know, I’m trying myself to get one asap for my review videos.

    Thanks, that’s good to know. Hopefully they can work out any production bugs in the android versions before the Windows comes out. I heard some of the tablets were having charging problems.
