    Really? It's gone?? Well I don't know about online, but I was just at Best Buy yesterday and they still had it in store. Didn't check the price, but u might want to get one while they still have it.

    Not on the site anymore either. Just did a shopping google search, had a link to it for BB, but was returned with "Page not found."

    It seems I remember BestBuy has some sort of Clearance center, maybe the tablet will show up there at a good discount?

    Just went on to the bestbuy website and they have the s7-102w and it has 2.2 and HDMI. Could this be the Slim?

    it says the huawei S7-201W - $299.00. 2.2 android- doesn't specify capacitive or resistive- just touch screen. Listed as backordered.

    They only have 3 pictures on the BestBuy site but one is the back of the device and this is definitely the S7 Slim. Also its weight is about 448g compared to the S7 10x at 500g. That should mean Capacitive Multitouch for the expected US$299
    Good news I would say

    The image on the BB product page definitely looks like the slim!

    So they should be getting it in stores by end of month or beginning of next! I'm still going to wait till later in the year to buy a new one. See how it does.

    Although I'm happy to see the slim arrive, I'm bitter that the original S7 went through an entire shelf life without ever getting accessories. I say sorry Huawei, your lack of support is mutual.

    I personally don't see a need to upgrade, I'm pretty happy with my S7 as it is, although I would love a bigger battery. Still I think my next tablet will be run Honercomb. Problem so far is I like the 7" form factor, so I will have to wait to see what hits the market. Possibly the HTC Flyer if it gets the promised Honeycomb this summer, I love the idea of a digitizer.

    Supposedly it got accessories in the PRC, but those never made it here. There were some pictures of a nice case here on the site, but the poster said he couldn't get hold of cases without the tablet.

    Still, I get your point. Hopefully the Slim will come with accessories that will fit the old S7 too.

    Agreed. Indonesia got a 2.2 update, US customers got "here, buy the new model".

    If the 2.2 S7 update fixes the radio issues I have when outside of my home area (I'll know next week), Huawei might possibly get a second chance, but not with this device. If it doesn't - no more Huawei for me, guaranteed.

    I stopped by Best Buy tonight to buy the Asus Transformer (which they didn't have any in stock) and I saw they still have the S7 original on display for $249 with the screen protectors for it nearby...... So it may pay to check individual stores if anyone is still looking to buy one.

    Did u grab that asus transformer yet ? how is it? how does the plastic case feel ? I heard bad reviews cuz of it, cuz I actually was also looking at that but went with this tablet instead in this case because of the casing.
