    i just put in my dhl tracking details and it's showing up more info that i can get from dhl
    like Description: SAMPLE OF LITHIUM ION BATTERIEPI967 and weight 7.7 lbs
    :evil: great 3.4kg of li-on batteries what a stupid thing to declare them as since lithium batteries are deemed dangerous goods in Australia.

    Waiting for my N101...
    Eternal just shipped mine, and estimated delivery will be on 17th of August. So two weeks from the initial order. The tracking seems to be working fine for me?

    I ordered mine on the 3rd from Eternal.

    After a couple of messages back and forth of shipping date all I could get was indefinite answers of soon. Last Night I added in depending upon the answers I receive I'm considering to cancel my order. They sent back it will be shipped tonight :shock: (lol all I wanted was a definite answer that I could hold them to but that works too).

    The tracking number from UPS says it was shipped out last night and will be delivered on the 16 to my location on the West Coast of USA.


    I don't know what to think about Eternal's way of business considering I ordered during a factory recall. I never received any info from them about the factory's recall to fix the various problems (I did receive a mass message about them waiting on a shipment from the factory but no reference to the recall). I asked 5 questions and only received 2 answers (Now granted the 2 answers kinda answered all the questions). Here are some excerpts from some of the answers I received from my assigned representative "you knpw it is newest version", "pls take a notice.", oh and this "wish you can receive it sooner".


    I just hope I don't have any problems with it and have to deal with the return process.

    Just a quick summary on my order

    Ordered from Eternal on either July 31st or Aug 1st. (Presell order in black with a case and SD card.)
    UPS shipping notification message created on Aug 1st. No further progress.
    Contacted Eternal on Aug 7th - was promised it would ship later that day.
    It didnt ship so contacted them again on Aug 8th and said I would cancel if it didnt ship with tracking no. updated.
    It shipped on Aug 8th.
    Got as far as Germany on Aug 9th.
    Took until today (13th ) to get to Ireland. :roll:
    Was delivered to my house in the last hour - but I'm not home so will have to wait until after work to check it out.
    Got stung for €56 customs charge - kind of what I expected worst case.

    Yeah tell me about it.
    The charge was 39€ for tax and UPS charged a further 14 euro for handling!
    The value written on the poackage was $120 but I think customs don;t believe package values from China a lot of the time.

    I ordered two covers from Eternal & got these, I got the free HDMI cable as well but they never packed tge 32GB SD card that I paid for.

    Started playing with the tablet a bit but not sure where to start? I want full market access - assume I dont; have it because when I tried to download you tube I got a 921 error?

    just restart the tab and the error is gone.
    or just wait a few minutes (30 minutes) it is updating your market. After 30 minutes also try reboot.
    if still not work
    clear cache and data from your play store and google framework and then reboot

    My tab was also priced at $120 even though i had asked them to write $50, i paid £27.25 to the DHL guy.

    Just run Antutu

    Samsung Galaxy S3 phone gave me 8010 (CPU 4492, RAM 1722, GPU1032, I/O 764)
    N101 with stock software gave me 7731 (CPU 4074, RAM 1604, GPU1424, I/O 629) GPU so much higher!!!

    both run on latest antutu version

    This might actually be a true tracking list.
    I have ordered a lot of things from overseas and while I usually ignore tracking and just wait, I have seen things like this.
    Sometimes it will register final destination at the beginning of the trip for whatever reason. Its like a From Here, To there, Via These. I've gotten worked up a couple of times years ago for tacking things that say they're in my city and then pop out and halfway across the country late that night.
    So i usually just verify that the number is valid and wait.

    Just got my n101 woehoe!
    Bought it at aliexpress, eternal team, ups shipping, cost $235 with a leahter case/stand. Arrived 8 days after ordering and had to pay 34,44 euro (23 taxes in NL + 10 euro handeling fee) because eternal team declared it as a tablet at 60% of the actual price. I could have asked otherwise, but sometimes people get fined if customs find out that the item cost more., so this seemed to be a good option. Customs no longer accept the ' gift ' trick.

    Hello all,

    I got received my n101 (in the settings coded as d101) on 23th Aug. I have ordered the tablet on the Aliexpress website from the Eternal Team on 16th of Aug. So, UPS delivered my n101 in The Netherlands in just 1 week time. I ordered the black version with a leather case-stand. I received everything in good condition. Just as JosHendrikx mentioned, I had to pay taxes in total 32 euro (22 euro taxes en 10 euro handeling fee UPS).

    No. Mine came from Eternal but is labelled as a 101T. But it really should make no difference as that is just a text name given to the device id.
