    Storage Device 2GB NAND Flash Optional 4GB-32G
    LCD Size: 10.2 inch TFT LCD with resistance touch screen, single point touch (resistive)

    ok so you peaked my interest and i did some searching all i could find were reviews for the prototype of this device and in most of the articles were mentioned the 35 dollar tablet rumor (that still might come true) so please can you share the link so we all can look into it

    Unit Price: US $139.99 - 145.99
    Does not look like $50 to me

    With free shipping, the unit price is roughly equal to the lot price of the non-free shipping version, which makes it roughtly 3 times more expensive. Besides, free shipping is not available for all countries.

    Keep in mind that you have to add the shipping price and customs declarations costs. Shippings like this will usually not go unnoticed, the courier service will add the customs. With courier services, there is no "free as gift" shipping.

    Keeping these things in mind, it's still an interesting offer and I'm seriously considering buying 1 lot. Especially since they accept Paypal, which makes it pretty safe. EMS shipping takes less than 1 week worldwide, so there's plenty of time to make a Paypal claim in case anything goes wrong.

    You're not wrong!

    Let me know how you get on if you do decide to buy this lot. Im looking at buying a ZT-180 myself but if I can get 3 for £30 (+ customs) more than the price of 1 it makes more sense to buy 2 more and ebay them.

    Kind Regards
    Kris

    Okay, I just had a chat to the guy on Aliexpress, the listing is wrong

    He hasn't realised the listing was for 3 pieces per lot, the price on there is the price for 1 tablet, not 3!

    Shame because that would have been a real profit spinner!

    Bummer but if you can pay the free shipping one with out having to pay customs on this end that would still be a good deal but thats a gable and can end up costing a lot of money

    Too late, they discovered their mistake and changed their ad. Now it's $139.99-145.99/piece. I haven't had the chance to order the lot offer, because I was still doubting about it. What seems too good to be true, usually is.

    Btw. the name "ePad" is used by many mfgrs. I know that the Flytouch ePad (which this isn't, this is a Wise W18 ePad) can be updated and hacked with a working "market" and the other ones usually not.

    The real mfgr of this "Wise W18 ePad" is also advertising on Alibaba for prices which are similar to this single piece offer (like this). That was one of the things that made me doubt about ordering.

    Purchased a couple of these from eBay & for the price they look half decent. Having that said, they're not very user friendly when it comes to deleting sync apps like Facebook, email etc... I can't delete the personal data off the device. Tried dragging the app to the trash can, tried editing it from privacy-app management, but it won't let me delete anything. Does anyone know how to do this? been trying for a couple hours now & can't get anywhere with this.

    Thanks FTANL :confused:
