I give up waiting for launch in Singapore. I'm thinking to import.
I want to buy 10.8 inch with LTE. I'm fine with Pro or not Pro model.
Hong Kong or US does not sell 10.8 with LTE. 8 inch is the choice for LTE.
It's sold in China, but China model is not preferred due to lack of Google play. (it's not my option to change firmware.)
I found it sold in EU, but they didn't look good because it's difficult to ship battery and VAT refund is not provided.
Do anyone know the place to ship 10.8 with LTE to Singapore and provide VAT refund?
there are links to online platforms that ship to SG.
have u tried them?

Expansys based in HK, Amazon USA and Amazon UK don't have 10.8 inch with LTE model.
Amazon Italy has 10.8 with LTE model, but it's reseller not Amazon. It doesn't ship to Singapore. If I use forwarding company, I cannot get VAT refund.
I didn't think it's so difficult to get it.

The seller is located in Shenzhen. It must be China model but they say it has google play. They may replace firmware. I worry it to cause problem.

I'm fine to pay GST, but VAT in Europe is near 20%. I want to avoid it.

Am not sure if China resellers have access to global ROM model.
But i doubt they would open the new sets and flash themselves to global ROM.

I'm waiting for 8.4inch, but if huawei still gonna drag the local launch, then i will just get other brands.

Expansys seems to have restocked now.
http://www.expansys.com.sg/huawei-me...e-gold-310496/

Global rom, as seen from https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...63796700366085

SG$549.99(Excl. GST)
Delivery fees from SG$18.00

Wondering if official local set will be cheaper than this?
