    I'm working on a new plan for sellers, we've got a multi-vendor store planned for launch within the next month or so where our sellers will be able to list products and sell, including discounts. All orders will be tied directly to your VonDroid account to make it easy to get support, discounts and accountability.

    Apart from that what else would you like to see, or what is most important, when buying a new Android powered device?

    I'd think PayPal is also a major selling point to many people.

    Build quality. But i suppose its a mute point since no seller would say 'This device has a crappy build' about their product.
    Would the above mentioned store allow the buyers to review the purchased item?

    Yes, the Store features a full review system so you would be able to give your honest opinion about the product and company. It might be hard persuading the Sellers to go for it but it will filter out the serious sellers from the not-so-serious ones.

    First seller!
    Exact description of goods, quality of assembly, regular updatings, iron.
    All this we learn before purchase.

    it would be great that when you need to return faulty device, that you can send it to EU warehouse not to China...because it can be very expensive
