    Just got word from Shop01, they will be delivering the english versions of the G6 Lite. Great news as far as I am concerned. No word on when, but I suppose it's a week or two away as with other retailers.

    Yeah that's good but OMG, look at that price. I hope their shipping is cheap.

    edit: so their shipping is quite cheap 13-15 euros but it doesn't make up for that massive price difference.

    I configured a Passcard3 and a G6 Lite to see the total cost.

    Shop01.Media - 159 euro all inclusive.
    Winsunx - 116 euro , paypal fees and shipping to UK included when I ordered on the 3 weeks ago.
    Divineo.de - 102 + Shipping (can't read German)

    That's about 40% more expensive. I think I'll pass, thanks.


    Then again, unlike Winsunx they probably won't cancel your order when you just ask them a question. [​IMG]

    I've always found their prices to be absolute highway robbery. Why are they so much more expensive than any other store? There's got to be a reason outside "just because", I hope.

    For me, I like the idea of not having to use creditcard, paypal or anything like that and get the goodies shipped from inside the country. But maybe I'm just old fashioned.

    Their site says they're expecting them to arrive July 17.

    I just ordered the G6 lite + Passcard 3 from them.
    I paid 1752 swedish kronor which equals to 243 usd. That's pretty goddamn expensive, I know.... Maybe this piracy hardware business needs some healthy competition?

    at divineo.de its EUR 102.90 + shipping only if you live inside the European Union and EUR 88.71 + shipping if you live outside the European Union (that's excluding the VAT).
    shipping to a german location would be EUR 4.50.

    I sent an e-mail to shop.01media regarding their G6 Lites that will sell from the 17th of July.

    My question:

    "Dear Sir,
    >
    > The G6 Lites that you will have in stock on the 17th of this month, are
    > Chinese or English version?
    >
    > I am asking that because the G6 team anounced on the 10th of July that the
    > English version G6 Lite will be ready in about 2 weeks."


    They answered immediately:

    "We were told we would get the English G6 the 10th of July.
    But your guess may be the accurate one. Good thinking.

    Thank you. "

    check out my e-mail from shop 01media.com...

    Hello,

    Yes we have received your order and your payment.

    We are sorry about the delay. The G6 is supposed to have landed.
    Our Swedish post office seems to have lost the shipment.
    We are working hard to locate it. We will keep you informed.
    We apologize for any inconveniance.

    Hopefully we will be able to ship this week.



    Sincerely,

    Kevin

    Because of your e-mail, I sent them mine. I asked you a question about the versions on the "help with winsunx email" topic and because you didn't answer, I e-mailed shop.01media.

    Their answer to me is in my previous post.

    So, to clarify things, the e-mail that sent to me is AFTER yours.

    And to clarify things more, shop.01media is not sure if they'll get English or Chinese versions of G6 Lites.

    I hope I helped you a little.
