Amazon:
We want to make money when people use our devices, not when they buy it!
We are not building the best tablet at a certain price. We have just built the best tablet at any price

They for sure knocked Nokia from the #1 spot and putting Motorola on #3

now to wait for a tear down to see the processors and ram
 
Pretty amazing. But does it have content in Belgium/Netherlands?
 
daarmee zijn we dan niet content.
nochtans heeft Amazon.nl nu toch al de deuren geopend? Scannen maar!
