    I can see a 32gb Pipo M3 on the UK Ebay, but the seller has "interesting" returns policy...
    Does anyone know of a good UK supplier for these?

    Many thanks.

    Don`t know if you are still searching - if so, try
    http://uk.topnotchtablets.com/PIPO_M3
    This is the UK/EU partner in the US/canada/UK site.
    I have been in contact with the US site owner and he is a genuine enthusiast (and the firmware writer for the group, I think).
    You will see the problems of UK sourcing noted there - need to have EU certification.
    Also comments about the faulty screen problems they experienced some time back

    I have not bought anything from any of the TNT partners, but the US and Canada people are very active on FMA and seem to be held in high regard by other posters there.
    The UK man does not seem to be personally active there, but his background work is published on the TNT US site.
    That doesn`t actually answer your question directly (sorry), but I would have no doubts about using him based on the above if they had what I wanted.
    The problem with any UK purchase is VAT, or if using US/Canada VAT AND Import Duty, making prices higher than available elsewhere.

    Sorry, but I`ve only just joined VonDroid, so was unaware of this.
    I hope my comments have been a good plug for TNT and I should like to use them at some point in the future if they have what I want and the pricing is right.
    On FMA efforts have been made by them to see if prices can be made more attractive by some form of "group/bulk buying" - see there for details.
    Unfortunately, the UK/EU makes things very difficult, what with its VAT and import tariffs - which I could understand if there was any significant UK/EU manufacturing business to "protect", but of course there isn`t.
    It is just another way of taxing us to death.
    I confirm I have no links to TNT, but have been impressed by their professional enthusiasm and help/guidance when I dipped my toe into the unknown world of Android.
    Now off my soapbox!

    If you are looking for a seller with UK stock (no tax etc) then contact InGadget, or if you are looking for a seller with a larger range but based in China then contact iPadAlternative - both are good choices and trusted by VonDroid.

    Already got mine thanks - though it's been lost to the wife (mostly for Angry birds) so I might need another at some point :S

    Sorry, not trying to stir things up, just offering help to a post.

    I am waiting for my next tablet purchase and think I shall go for a Rockchip 3188, when manufacturers release units (unless you guys point out my error and steer me somewhere else)
    I had been watching the Huawei 10", but that seems to have bitten the dust as far as the UK is concerned
    Have you any "advance info" not available to common plebs like me as to who will offer the best bang per buck and when?
    (I need a 10.1", but don`t need a retina screen and would like a good battery life -( wouldn`t we all?).
    I shall certainly check out Ingadget and ipadalternative when stuff starts to appear.
