    I am curious, to all the great people on this forum, if you could reply back if you bought a tablet from China how long it took to ship to you. What kind of shipping, and where to?

    China to California via registered mail: 16 days... and counting.

    Gee, That is me with a different danger. You could be in my shoes with my wife's present coming from Amazon. And they said it shipped on the 5th. and it still says that. It has never arrived at the post office. I know it is only the 15th. But it should be here by now :-(

    My first one took 7 days (USPS) the screen was cracked so it went back to the seller (ebay) that took 10 days (Priority Mail). The second one took 5 days via UPS. From what I have experienced it can take 24-48 hours for it to go through Customs. I should add I'm in New Hampshire so it has to come pretty far.

    Great thread!

    I've been sitting here twidling my thumbs and wondering about the same thing.
    Ordered my HYPE Pad (what the heck is that really anyway) from BuyADroid and paid for it on 12/8.
    Got FEDEX "reference number" a couple of days later but nothing showed up on the site until 12/12. It said est. delivery is 12/16!! I was jumping for joy.
    Checked the website again yesterday (checked it at least once an hour. :)) and it said it is still in HK and est delivery date is now .......

    12/21

    WAHHHHHH

    Shipping is by Fedex International Economy - eg el cheapo shipping.

    I ordered mine from merimobiles on the 5th and recieved it in Wyoming on the 14th. 9 days total from ordering it to my door.....That's impressive and the Item is fantastic, couldnt be happier with my experience. Funny thing is though, I look up my order, and it still says processing hehehehe. Never was supplied a shipping number though, that was a bit disturbing.

    Just a notice. Shipping prices have skyrocketed in anticipation for the Christmas season in China. Customs have clamped down as well. Take these things into account when ordering from China in anticipation for Christmas next time.
