    It is will be sold today and will be added to my arsenal with Apple iPad, Samsung S III and Samsung Note II.

    The first thing, I will do is to "root", like I did to Samsung S III and Samsung Note II.

    Without "root" it is useless, just like Apple iPad. Android devices are easy to "root". Apple devices are impossible to "root", and therefore Apple devices are useless and much hyped.

    Best regards,

    I own iPad and it is collecting dust. "Rooting" is called, "Jail Breaking" in iPad, which is impossible. In Apple devices "Jail Breaking" is cat and mouse game, where as, in Android devices it is not.

    With Android devices, one can access the home network, with Apple devices, it is impossible.

    Just to be clear, on most android devices it's just as difficult to root as on apple - 4.2 may make it harder with selinux. Both require local exploitation of the operating system so that you can gain administrative rights. Some android phones are sold with unlocked bootloaders (think secureboot) but I know of none that are sold with root.

    Why not let it go? Sell it, give it away to friends and family. How do you like Note II? Do you make a call with it? How does it feel when you do that with one hand clutching it against your ear? :D

    NOT TRUE!

    The Most Advanced, the Most Popular and the Most Expansive, the Branded Devices it is easier to root.

    However, those thousands of Android Unbranded Chinese Devices, there is no rooting for them.

    As soon as Android Jelly Bean v4.2 will be out today, the rooting will be out today too!

    All my Android Phones with Jelly Bean v4.12 are rooted. From Samsung S3 to Samsung Note 2. These are the most recent devices.

    It is getting $100.00 or more from those who are stupid and/or scared to root. Rooting only takes, two minutes. It doesn't go away by installing new ROM (operating system), like in Apple IOS.

    One of the reasons i only buy Samsung devices, especially the high end ones . . . they come with unlocked bootloaders so they always have a HUUUUGE dev community. :thumb:

    I live in the Central America/South America.

    I considered this but i won't be risking my CC number LOL.
    There are ton of free proxies around the web but i don't feel safe at all putting all that sensitive info when using them hahahahaha

    Aw you're no fun. Just give away the CC number and see what happens. :argh:

    Why not make a phone call using something like Skype to the sales team and give them the number? :D

    You need three things:
    1. VPN with USA IP.
    2. Credit Card issued in USA.
    3. Shipping address in USA.

    I have already ordered Nexus 10 16GB, the 32GB are already sold out. And, Nexus 7 with 32GB. Also, all the Nexus 4 are sold out too!

    Soon, Nexus 10 16GB will be sold out too.

    Everyone got kicked out from their cart, at least 10 times, with empty carts again, until they got lucky!

    Best regards,

    I forgot to add Google Nexus devices on my "Android Devices" that i would purchase. Only Samsung or anything Nexus. :D
    With Samsung i got guaranteed dev support for a couple years and with Nexus devices . . . well it's a Google device.

    You can tinker with your phone, basically tweak every single thing on the phone (Depends on ROM).
