Gonna personally hold off on any new Android tablet purchase until mid-next year. I think we'll see a lot cooler stuff by then.
Anyone have any advice on how to open up a report with Google Wallet about this? I kinda want my money back now that it seems to be a cut and dry scam. I was so excited for it too.
I have started the Process to try and get my money back from these crooks. I have told Google Wallet and my Credit Card Company.
Hopefully this will be quick..... I doubt it.
Does anyone know a Good Tablet deal!! I now am missing two key Christmas Presents this year!!
Yes, buy a nexus 7. Sub $100 tablets that work well, will not fall apart and are not a chore to use are a myth. If you can't afford the $200, get an older kindle or a nook, but stay away from the cheap Chinese junk.

Typed from some sort of computing device, but probably from my LG G2 which is fun to say over and over and over again...
Even though this situation was beyond our control, we just want to say we are embarrassed by it. We only ran this story after several other larger publications, like BGR and Engadget ran it. We thought this was a great deal and a reputable company, and would never have shared it if we had any inkling it was going to be a ripoff. For what it is worth, even Google was taken in by this.
We intend that each of you are able to get things worked out through your credit card companies. Please continue to post updates in this thread to let everyone know how things are progressing for you. Thanks for your understanding! We would go kick these scammers in the arse for you guys if we could!
If you are looking for an alternative Android 4.0 tablet you can try this website: China Electronics Dropshipping - Free Shipping China Gadgets from Online Electronics Shopping Store While I haven't purchased tablets from them I have purchased other items and received them no problem. I would, however, advise that you spring for the expedited shipping if you plan to give tablets as gifts because the typically receipt time from this site is about 3-4 weeks from time of order. While their processing time is reasonable the time in transit is a bit of a wait. Also with faster shipping you get tracking info. I don't know the true quality of the tablets sold on this site as they are all "unknown" brands. I wouldn't expect anything too impressive from the specs but if you're planning on giving them to children they should do just fine. Also while the majority of the tablets offered run Android 4.0 ICS I doubt they'd be getting a JB update and I doubt there's any tech support offered. You get what you pay for.
Yeah I got one from Walmart during cyber Monday for 60 bucks. It works well and standby battery time is pretty good. My 3 year old should be happy with it. I took it out just to make sure it was some good and to load some games on it so he can play with it immediately on Christmas.

Definitely faster and easier to go directly to your bank then going through Google Wallet.
