Hi all, After a nightmare experience with a Synrgic Dreambook which I sent back to China (and got a refund !!) I've been looking for something similar ever since but something that actually works !!!! unlike the Synrgic piece if c**p. I managed to pick up a brand new (sealed box) mediapad (S7-301u) via ebay from a UK seller in early December for £260. I understand it came direct from a marketing event in Malaysia. I can honestly say this is the best 7" tablet I've tried. It's completely smooth, very fast and has no issues with any applications. So far I've tested; Skype / Copilot Live Premium / Teamviewer / X-Plane 9 / Huawei Phone Application ......... and a load of other applications. I'm running it using GiffG**f/O2 and I've found it totally faultless. Had a few issues with some slightly dodgy apps but that's no big deal. What really amazes me is that I've used it in the car while running Copilot/Skype/Phone App (linked to my built-in car bluetooth) and it works completely faultlessly. I have just rooted it so I can run some other apps. If anyone is interested I can post a guide. It looks like Vodafone will release the tablet as the Vodafone Smart S7 but unless you are tied with Vodafone, I would buy it out of contract as I'm sure they will wreck it with some irritating firmware. A case and screen protector are vital for one of these devices as I don't think the screen is as tough as an ipad and it would be a shame to scratch the case as it's a particularly stylish. Ditch any other 7" you have and get one of these. They're excellent.
