    I'm surprised this thread isn't getting more attention. I just ordered from Kick.

    Also, RealHotStuff just extended their 5% off coupon code out until the end of 2006 so that makes the G6 Lite a few bucks cheaper there if you're an American.

    KT doesn't sell non-american version products(or I've never seen them). Plus wasn't it recently the launch of the english version? KT always follows release date rules.

    Don't know... you should contact KT... they're honest and quick to reply.

    It is for sure the English version, it says at the top of the page at this link here (which is a bit misleading as it doesn't say within the actual item description):

    http://www.kicktrading.ca/index.php?cPath=30

    I ordered 2 of the G6 + Passcard 3 bundles and got them to knock the price down by pricematching psxbox.net and winsunx.com respectively. Didn't get a straight pricematch because their shipping costs are different, but they still knocked the price down by a solid $10, which equates to free shipping I suppose.

    I'm happy with it and hopefully I'll have them in my hot little hands by Tuesday! W00t!

    I'm VERY tempted by it, but I think I'll wait for the M3 Lite.

    Granted, this is my first time ordering from them, and I haven't received my items yet but I've really heard nothing but good about them (which is why I held off until they got the G6's in stock).

    They've been pretty quick to respond to my emails and were fair in their pricematching. Plus you can pay using Paypal, which is always nice. They're based in Canada, so no duty either.

    Divineo also ships from Canada, so no duties. I just ordered from them yesterday because it was cheaper, and they have the Dragon silicon shells for $5.99. I've heard that their shipping delay is poor sometimes though.

    They shipped my order yesterday, woo. Wish I thought of getting a price match but oh well. Too bad the sales tax + shipping added $30 to the price though. :(

    There are in fact now black cases shipping as well.

    -White
    -Ice Blue
    -Navy Blue
    -Black
    -Regular GBA case

    You won't get all of them when ordering though. You'll likely get a white, navy OR ice, & black at the moment. However, since everyone who orders seems to get something different..!

    The photo on kicktrading sure looks black. Doesn't make any difference to me, I will be using white!

    Yeah, Kicktrading is my current favorite. I've order twice from them and had no problems what so ever. Just don't expect to be able to track it to your front door. It basically gets lost in some transit vortex for a few days then suddenly appears on your doorstep the day it is supposed to. I like it because I am never at home during the day and it gets delivered through the post office, so I can just pick it up two blocks up the street at the nearest P.O.


    Oh, and by way I noticed they had the G6lite in stock like 2 days ago, but I wanted to give the regulars(that most likely know about KT) a chance.

    I have experienced this too, but I just tried my tracking number tonight and it lists the details for once. Item accepted at post office on Aug 3rd 9:30PM, Item entered into sortation plant Aug 5th 12:04AM. Guess I won't be getting it til Tuesday at the earliest due to the holiday on Monday.

    Oh I just noticed the section "Service standard delivery date: Aug 8"
