Re: January 2012?
Let's hope so! 15 months is long time in smartphone technology - in fact it's pretty close to the duration of my own 'refresh cycle'.
"In January 2012 we ran a Reg reader survey" Really? Nobody noticed? Is it just me?
Re: Wow - those serial numbers are tough to guess
If you get the number wrong, you have to refill all the other fields, even if it looks like they have the correct data in them.
Only for 16GB Version
I registered both an 8GB and a 16GB version on different e-mail and Asus accounts. I received 10% off vouchers for both, but only got the £25 coupon e-mail for the 16GB version. The e-mail states that the offer is only for the 16GB version, but this is not mentioned on the original offer...
T&Cs from Coupon e-mail:
To qualify for this offer you must have::
1. Purchased 16GB Nexus 7 before October 29th 2012
2. Purchased 16GB Nexus 7 from an ASUS retailer or online retailer
3. Completed Registration at our ASUS member site https://vip.asus.com/login.aspx.
4. Submitted your proof of purchase to email@example.com.
Does this qualify as a marketing scam to get all the 8Gb owners to register their devices?
Hehe, Expanded Memory, please tell me that they had to edit CONFIG.SYS to set this up :)
Buying from Germany.
I bought mine last week from Amazon.de for €524 delivered (=£462 on my CC bill). This includes 19% German VAT, there's no import duty within the EU and warranty is also EU wide.
You can use your Amazon.co.uk credentials on Amazon's .de and .fr sites, so it's pretty simple to buy from either - hint: using Google Chrome with auto translate makes it even easier.
Sumitomo Resin Factory
It was the Sumitomo Epoxy Resin Plant, it was 1993 and it was a fire/explosion. It wasn't anything to do with Kyoto or an earthquake. However, the comparison is still valid, I made the same observation on a call with the US this morning.
I also remember selling two 4MB DIMMs for £175 each, I think they had cost me around £80 each a month earlier.
